Floor was quite a treat! I think the next few years we are going to see quite a change in the US floor offerings. We are seeing quite a few girls who can tumble AND dance in the mix! Not to be missed is my favorite routine of the meet – Laurie Hernandez and McKayla Maroney’s new floor routine.
The balance beam tooks its fair share of victims, especially in the junior ranks. Many impressive beam routines fell victim to, well a fall. However, all the beam routines you see below are well worth your time watching they are beautiful! Most especially Norah Flatley, who has been a you tube sensation on beam for many years. Her elite beam debut did not disappoint!
Balance Beam Champion – Peyton Ernst (14.7)
Balance Beam Silver – Kyla Ross (14.65)
Balance Beam Bronze – Kennedy Baker (14.3)
Balance Beam Champion – Norah Flatley (15.2)
Balance Beam Silver – Bailie Key (15.0)
Balance Beam Bronze – Veronica Hults (14.9)
There were lots of attempts at some high flying skills on bars, but in the end, clean and consistent won the day.
