Gymgalas – best performances

December 28, 2010

Ariella Kaeslin, Beth Tweddle and Aagje Vanwalleghem among others couldn’t get enough from gymnastics and performed at some gymgalas in europe.

Here’s my favourite part of every Belgium gymgala (Ghent) – the acrogym team show! They lost a lot of excellent elite gymnasts this year (Florence Henrist & Tatjana De Vos, Julie Van Gelder & Menno Vanderghote, the women’s group…), but still put together a great routine.

Click play or watch it on YouTube: (couldn’t find a better quality – UPDATE: Here’s a way better video, thanks for the comment!)

Some highlights from the gala in the Netherlands:

The acrobatic gymnastics group “Hakuna Matata” from Tanzania.

I like those pants! 🙂 Here’s another great performance of the group (pole act)!

That’s an amazing routine from the women’s pair from Belarus – Alina Yushko and Katsiaryna Murashko (BLR)!

Nastia Liukin IS training!

December 28, 2010

Here’s a nice christmas present: Trans World Sport did a feature with Nastia Liukin, in which they tell her story from the time before Beijing until now. So in the last two minutes after some routines from the Olympics and a little promotion for her supergirl – clothing line you actually see her training in the gym! She does some shaky turns, a side somi and free walkovers on beam, some dance on the floor and some tumbling. It’s still a long way to go, but hey, there’s still more than one year left until London 2012!

Merry Christmas!!!

6th place for Ludivine Furnon & Nicolas Besnard

December 28, 2010

Ludivine Furnon and her acrobatic partner Nicolas Besnard, Duo Maintenant, didn’t make it in the top three. Instead they earned the sixth place for their erotic performance in the final of the french tv show “La France a un Incroyable Talent” (French version of “Britain’s Got Talent’).

They lost against two dancing kids, among others. Click here to watch their winning performance including a very, very bad round-off.
