I found a montage of Indian gymnasts. I am sooo trilled to see that country has a gymnastics program. In time I know they can only improve. I remember only too well when China sent it's first team to the figure skatinag worlds how poorly they did, and compared with how extremely well they are doing now. I believe in the future of Indian gymnastics.

Thanks for the video! It's great to see that this sport gains popularity in the World. It's such a fantastic sport and I am happy to see that people enjoy it in India, as elite gymnasts and probably as hobby gymnasts, too.

Another montage of Indian gymnasts. This video has names in it, so keep those names in mind, because who knows maybe one of them could make it in this sport. :) The gymnasts are all in Belarus for a camp.

It will be interesting to see how the spot develops in India. I have to admit, I was expecting this to be a bit of a trainwreck, like those poor little Indian pair skaters that competed in the JGP a few years ago, but the gymnastics program looks far more promising. Best of luck to them all!

Best choreography, dance, and attention to line and extension that I've seen from a Romanian in a long time.

Eh, I don't know. I think she has better line and extension but only because it comes so naturally to her. She has much longer limbs than the typical Romanian gymnast. I didn't notice much else about her that stood out, though.

It didn't used to come so naturally, this was her in 2005:

I really like the flow she has in her newer routine, most Romanian gymnasts tend to make all of their choreography look really choppy and pose-y. She actually listens to the music and flows all of the choreography together.

I think she's quite lovely, and I don't say that too often about many of the current Romanian gymnasts.

It would be nice to see her at Worlds this year.

She is lovely. Not since Silivas and Dobre have I seen such potential. She looks quite young, do you know how old she is? I've love to see her compete for several more years.

I believe she's about 16 or 17, still very young and should be around at least until London 2012. She will be competing at Worlds this year. :)

I honestly can't remember a Romanian gymnast with the potential to be truly great for reasons other than nailing big tricks and being consistent, the potential is already starting to show but it's how much more she has that has me excited. The "Memmel turn" she does in her floor routine is so gorgeous, it looks like Sasha's I-spin and how I've always wished Chellsie would do that skill.

If you go to that user who I linked to in her Nats floor routine, you can see all of her other events as well. On vault she only has a FTY, but it has such a nice block that you just know it will be a double within the next year. Her bars are acutally very clean and nice as well, she does straight body casts and has nice lines. Beam is her best event, she has more choreography (unique, good choreography at that!) than any other gymnast in the World and thats the event where you can really appreciate her gymnastics.

I wouldn't be surprised to see her medal at Worlds this year on beam, it's potentially that good of a routine, and she's the kind of gymnast that I've been waiting for this year. A gymnast who will be primed for 2012, that shows the kind of potential she does in area's that I think gymnastics is really lacking right now. Strange to say that about a Romanian gymnast, but give her another year or two and I think this one could be a very deserving World or Olympic AA contender.

A montage of Aliya Mustafina from 2006. It seems like she has grown up right in front of our eyes. Hopefully if all goes well, next year she will make her senior debut.
