A clip for now and then: (7)

Shawn Johnson´s floor routine from the team finals at the 2007 World Championships really deserves to be watched several times.

She nails every landing, she does five difficult tumbling passes without getting tired and waiting in the corner in order to take a deep breath, she gives us some happy smiles 🙂 and I like her music and the dance she shows!

Click play or watch it on YouTube!

It´s one of her best floor routines she ever did.

    I love that routine… except for the music. I liked her August Rush music so much better.

    Any idea why gymnasts (not just her) wear chalk on their feet while doing floor?

    sweaty feets – it prevents them from sliding off, as it happend unfortunately to Marie Hindermann at the Olympics (at 4:40 you can see her last tumbling pass in this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1pZzpV541cw&feature=related)

    Hum, interesting, guess I never had that problem… I was never told to use chalk on my feet on floor. Beam yes but floor nope. *shrugs* interesting. Thanks!
