Just another leotard post

May 27, 2012

I just found the perfect leotards for Nastia and Catalina in the Olympics Beam Final. I guess, Nastias solid routine from the U. S. Secret inspired me…


Krisztian Berki shines on Pommel Horse

May 27, 2012

Men’s Pommel Horse is not exactly my favourite event to watch. But Krisztian Berki (HUN) delivered not only an incredible difficult routine at the European Championships EFs, held today (27th May 2012) in Montpellier, he’s extremely elegant, too. Look at his long (white) legs doing those flares!

Click play or watch his gold-medal-winning routine on YouTube:

He defeated Louis Smith (GBR) with 15.985 to 15.775 – same D-Score but better execution (9.058 compared to Smith’s 8.875). Harutyum Merdinyan (ARM) came third with 15.300 (6.4).

Spelbound’s Olympic Routine

May 27, 2012

And here we have more acrobatic gymnastics…

A couple of weeks ago, Spelbound performed to “A Moment like this” an Olympics-inspired routine. As always, they had excellent execution and good choreography. Watch it to the very end!

Does anyone know whether they’ll also perform at the Opening (or Closing) Ceremony of the actual Olympic Games??

REAL artistry in gymnastics II

May 27, 2012

Once again, I was stunned by the artistry in acrobatic gymnastics. And I guess, this won’t be the last time. Here we have the newly crowned World Champions in acrobatic gymnastics, who even defeated veterans Revan Gurgendize and Tatiana Okulova from Russia at this years Worlds in Orlando.

Gymnastics goes Fashion

May 27, 2012

Back in December I posted one single Chanel ad from the spring campaign. But there were a lot more models doing gymnastics-things over the ocean. See for yourself:


Now, I’m dreaming about a CHANEL leotard…

See the whole campaign.

Hambüchen All-Around: 26.05.12

May 27, 2012

It’s great to be able to follow Hambüchen’s way back to old strength due to his new habit to post every few weeks more training material on YouTube!

Click play or watch his AA test (26th May 2012) on YouTube:

As he writes, his floor and vault aren’t quite there yet. But still, an Amanar/Shewfelt with 6.6 D-Score might not be enough in a field where other top-all-arounders have 7.0 vaults.
