With the Olympics less than six months away, it's time to start looking at the hopefuls. Aliya Mustafina is recovering from an April ACL tear (a vault injury), but I hope she's good as new in time for London because I love her bars:
I'm not crazy about her floor routine; I know she's got to fill requirements, but her dance is almost entirely arm flourishes. However, I think it's interesting to watch this for the camera angles on her tumbling--notice how much her legs cross in the air. You have to be a great tumbler and fast twister to accomplish a 3 1/2 twist--but I'll cringe to watch her land, with all that torque, on a freshly healed knee.
