Nastia on bars in training

Marcus pointed to a video from podium training shot by Gymdish:

Not quite a full routine — but the “cleanest” I’ve ever seen her swing.

  • the most interesting routine composition ever in history
  • superb variety of skills (vs He Kexin doing 3 Jaegers)
  • amazing flexibility
  • HUGE Geinger (the best of all time?)
  • better Pak than He Kexin
  • OK, the dismount is still very deductible. Perhaps she should go back to double layout.

    With Valeri as coach, she could add even more difficulty before Beijing. I expect he’s already got a plan on how to beat the Chinese in their own house. A great champion himself, Valeri thrives on this kind of challenge.
