Intended to be a bit different than Mr. Yang's topic about close to the beam passages. Wink

One of my favorites: Tatiana Groshkova, 1990 USA-USSR meet. Everyone's favorite headcase...too bad she never was on a major team. Sad

I'll post the obvious heartbreak, Yang Bo's 1989 World EF beam routine:

One of the few gymnasts able to compete a layout full and a layout in the same routine and yet display great artistry:
He Xuemei 1993.

As if the mount wasn't enough, there is much more originality afterwards...
Kelly Garrison 1988
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hMA5f00Mcs8&feature=related

Somebody knows other video of her doeing the same mount? I can't find many of her routines.

Kelly Garrison-Steves has always been one of my favorite beam workers because of her originality. It's too bad she competed in an era when Americans (and other Western gymnasts) were consistently underscored.

Pity she didn't perform her eponimous mount there. I haven't found any other routines that include the full twisting BWDS salto mount. In fact there's not much Garrison material on Youtube.

Romanian beauty:
Celestina Popa 1988

Daniela Silivas 1987

Certainly was unique...little margin for error with either. Heck, you can't find much USA stuff prior to '92 or so.

Yeah, too bad we can't have that kind of originality nowadays. Just add that to the long list of reasons why I prefer the older stuff. Smile
