Olessia Dunaeva: one-arm round-off

A video of the US gymnast Olessia Dunaeva posted by The All Around caught my attention today. Olessia Dunaeva who trains at Orlando Metro turns 14 next Wednesday. Her dance on floor is really exceptional! Click through to The All Around to see her complete all-around competition at the Gymnastics Open Championships in Lake Buena Vista on 5th of June (floor starts at 3:00).

Searching on YouTube for other videos I came along her routine from 2010, in which she only used one arm on her round-off+double twist because of a surgery on her right elbow. In her beam routine she doesn’t use her arms either and still finished first, on floor she came second.

Click play or watch her beam and floor (starts at 1:30) on YouTube:
