I want Sui Lu to win gold on beam. She’s a stunning and graceful gymnast. Her beam routine is always divine.
Let me congratulate Deng Linlin and Sui Lu for winning the gold and silver medals. Superb beam routines. They were very strong, precise and graceful. Chinese beam is really in a different plane from the others. Unbelievable.
Let’s take some time to appreciate how amazing Sui Lu and Deng Linlin’s beam routines are. The Chinese beam workers are amazing. They make that apparatus look like a sidewalk.
I hope they hold on to the first and second positions.
Sui Lu (CHN) | 2011 World Championship - EF BB
Everybody’s talking about the Americans and the Russians, but this girl, Sui Lu (CHN), will own today’s EF BB. She’ll easily walk out with the gold if she did things perfectly (like in WC 2011 and in the quals). Hands down. And please, before you go insert-American/Russian-gymnast-name-here is epic sauce on me, there’s also Catalina Ponor (ROU). So people might as well pray that these two mess their routines.
Fab five fans should mentally prepare themselves for tomorrow, because the Chinese, Romanians and Russians are gonna own this apparatus.
Sui Lu and Catalina Ponor will most likely take home the gold and silver.
That is all.
- China didn’t medal so that’s upsetting. Sui Lu, Yao Jinnan, He Kexin, Huang Qiushang and Deng Linlin should start focusing on their individual competitions from now on. It’s almost certain that China will shine on UB and BB.
- The USA gymnasts were explosive… POWERFUL. Nuff said. Aly Raisman and McKayla Maroney can get gold medals on floor and vault, respectively, given that they won’t mess up.
- The Russians were also amazing. Their errors today cost them a lot of points though.
- Romania Romania Romania. Why you so
goodgreat on floor? 왜? どうして? ¿Por qué?
Congratulations to USA, Russia and Romania!
This image was taken at the Chinese National Gymnastics Training Centre in Beijing back in November 2009, after training had finished for the day. Some of the gymnasts featured will be competing in the upcoming London Olympics. What makes it stand out is that it was captured all in one take.
I first gave the girls a picture of the poses I wanted and each girl chose one. Next, I got them framed up and then set up the camera. It only took about ten minutes and three takes and we were done. The girls were so accurate in terms of their timing when performing their moves, that the process of coordinating everyone and ensuring no one overlapped was amazingly straight-forward. — Adam Pretty
