best routines Winter Cup day 1

Andy Thornton has been pouring over the videos posted by USAG, linking to the best of the best.

Team USA needs pommels desperately, especially since Sasha Artemov is not back in shape, as yet.

Glen Ishino from Cal Berkeley (3rd AA PDF) has a good shot to make National Team, especially with a 14.90 on horse.

Andy liked this set, too:

… That had to be the best Liukin (full twisting laid out Tcatchev) I’ve ever seen, and nearly every skill he did had a unique style to it. Great body position on his releases, and great form throughout the routine. Same D-score as Leyva (7.4), but amazingly this scored 0.2 lower in execution than Leyva’s! …

Danell is awesome talented, but he really does need to improve his execution.
