Raj competed this ”Bhavsar” 2009 at the Moscow World Cup. Something like a Tkatchev starting one end of the bars, finishing on the other.

Score’s a little high, perhaps. But I’ve always like Sam’s back and forth routine.

He took out the (retro) back toss. Is there anyone left competing toss?

Manrique Larduet – unsportmanlike?

Manrique is young and inexperienced. But when I saw what he did at the end of his fantastic Parallel Bars in prelims my reaction was … DEDUCTION.

Personally I like seeing the guys emotional. Many were at Pan Ams. Love the passion.

But my gut feeling was that Manrique went too far this time.

I doubt he’ll do it again. Seems the coaches informed him (after that incident) that he risked loosing points. I was disappointed with the showboating after his fantastic H Bar dismount in AA too. Though likely wouldn’t have deducted that time.

What do you think?
