Throwback Thursday || Kohei Uchimura's 2009 HB EF

Clean and beautiful routine. It's always nice to appreciate Kohei for routines like this. It's also nice to see how much difficulty he keeps adding each year yet still be able to have clean gymnastics. This was one of his easier routine and he didn't medal but I like his work.

Catalina Ponor's 2016 Doha World Cup BB EF

She's back in time for the Olympic year. Romania really needs her. I like her confident and aggressive style. In my opinion the difficulty is a bit lacking to contend for a gold in Rio but anything can happen in this crazy sport. Sometimes execution and consistency can outweigh a more difficult D-score. Not a fan of the switch ring leap but everything else is good. She still makes gymnastics interesting to watch. Good luck to her and team Romania.

D5.9 + E8.75 = 14.65

Maggie Nichols 2016 American Cup Floor Exercise

She moves stiff and kind of awkward but this was absolutely my favourite routine from American Cup. Very stylish and artistic.
