One thing I love about the solstice holidays is year end lists. I’ll link to a number starting with Andrew Thornton:
Top Five Men’s Moments of 2010
1. German Men Win World Team Bronze
2. Kohei Uchimura Dominates World Championships
3. Jonathan Horton Wins World All-Around Bronze
4. Exciting and Controversial High Bar Duel Caps Off World Championships
5. Danell Leyva Gives Horton a Scare
Here’s Hambüchen after the team medal in Rotterdam.
If there’s a nicer person in gymnastics than Fabian, it’s his Dad.
Germany won European Championships 2010, as well. Here’s that team.
Fabian Hambüchen, Philipp Boy, Marcel Nguyen, Matthias Fahrig and Evgeny Spiridonov
Germany is by far the most popular team with the young ladies.
Top Five Women’s Moments of 2010
1. Russian Women Win First Ever World Team Title
2. Alicia Sacramone Wins (her) First Ever World Vault Title
3. Lauren Mitchell Wins World Floor Gold
4. Beth Tweddle Regains World Bars Title
5. Mattie Larson Delivers Epic Floor Routine (Nationals)
No doubt Mattie will make some lists of biggest letdowns 2010, as well.
