The most flawless and spectacular performance by an athlete ever is Daniela Silivas' compulsory floor at the 1988 Olympics:

Too funny.....I'm not even a gymnastics fan but I recently transferred my 88 Summer Olympic tapes from beta to dvd. Silivas was amazing in the floor routine in the team final. I much prefer that to this compulsory you favor. She had such great dance ability.

Her performance on floor in the team event I think is the one for the ages.

BTW, I don't know much about gymnastics but I definitely thought Silivas should have won the all-around title in Seoul. Shoushounova (however its spelled) was a really ugly gymnast. She was brutal to watch.

Bart Connor was a great announcer on US tv during those Seoul Olympics. Too bad he got replaced in later years.

Yeah, she was a fantastic dancer.

I didn't think the techno/breakdance style really suited her in 1988, though (it was more Camelia Voinea's turf).

The team final floor? Double-double for sure, but with a big step.

OK, maybe it was the individual all-around then......like I said I don't follow gymnastics

Indian gymnastic medalist Ashish Kumar who is 19. He has a bright future ahead of him, but we will not see him at the worlds because India has pulled out.

Apparently Kumar competes a 2 1/2 twist to punch DOUBLE front on floor! Can you imagine!?!? I want to see video so badly but I don't think it exists yet.

LOL! Thanks, yesterday someone was mentioning how it wasn't anywhere online so I assumed this video didn't have it, either.

ETA: Wow, and he stuck it for good measure!!!
