Things I've Loved About Floor Finals

1. Shawn ROCKED her routine. And she held on to first for a good while as the first athlete to compete - jeez!

2. Jiang Yuyuan's floor routine. I can't get over how playful and fun it is - it really does bring the crowd to it's feet! That's what gymnastics should be. Even if she is Chinese... and I do quite loathe them and their lying ways. Oh... and her smile scares the living crap outta me. -_-

3. Anna Pavlova's double layout. Holy cow... it's actually quite pretty compared to most other gymnasts'. Actually, Anna Pavlova's whole routine up until the fall was awesome!

4. Cheng Fei blowing it TWICE tonight. I really dislike her.

5. Nastia's opening pass. Especially when it's compared to her second pass. -_-

6. The fact that Nastia's routine is so based on ballet! Everyone in the competition should watch and learn, because THAT's what gymnastics should look like!

7. Sandra Izbasa's stuck first and third passes. But the first WAS sloppy. :(

8. While Sandra Izbasa doesn't have the best form, her routine was REALLY good. Her landings were the best of anyone in the competition.

9. Shawn didn't even flinch when she realized she got silver. It amazes me that she has that kind of sportsmanship. That's why she has the fanbase that she does!

Expect a similar post for beam and bars finals as well. :)
