okay how’s this for a gala exhibition:
each participating country sends their best floor specialist, and every gymnast does a floor routine to the same music. here’s the catch: every coach choreographs a different routine for their own gymnast, so we see different interpretations of the music, different choreography, and different arrangements of tumbling passes and dance elements
It’s 2014, can we stop pretending that a gymnast is either a powerhouse with no artistry or a ballerina who is not favoured by the code of points? Can we stop acting like Nastia Liukin’s floor is more artistic than Simone Biles’? Can we stop acting like artistry has anything to do with body type?
Yep I’m annoyed by this article
