Lots of great gymnastics going on last weekend, and I’m pleasantly surprised at how great the ladies are looking still relatively early in the season.
Maria Livchikova has a new floor exercise. When I first read that it was to “The Addams Family”, I shuddered. But she does a fabulous job with it in my opinion. Only the middle part of it teeters on cutesy, but it’s fun, and she’s a good enough dancer to get away with it.
I’m probably in the minority on this.
She scored 14.5 for this set. I especially liked her overcooked Memmel (triple in the works perhaps?), but she’s going to have to be careful performing a 3/1 and a 2 1/2 in the same routine. That triple is dangerously close to not being all the way around.
Stoi! readers, care to wage in on her new routine?
