Your daily dose of gymnastics

Just a quickie while I try to get back in to the swing of things after a looooong Thanksgiving holiday.

Li Li: the gymnast who brought breakdancing to the balance beam. I used to try this backspin when I had a little down time at practice. On the low beam. Again and again. Never made it past a quarter turn.

I love this whole routine, it's so creative and lovely, and nothing like routines today-- crammed with tricks that are connected by plodding steps. Well, everything is cyclical...the optimist in me says that eventually we'll see increased emphasis on creativity and originality. Thanks, Li Li!
