The Real Gymnasts

Oksana Omelianchick (Floor, Beam, AA) (Floor, Beam)
Olesia Dudnik (Floor, Vault, Beam, Bars) (Bars, Beam, Floor) 
Elena Shushunova (AA, Vault) (AA, Vault)
Nadia Commenci (Bars, Floor) (AA)
Shawn Johnson (Vault, AA) (Vault)
Svetlana Khorkina (Bars, Beam) (Bars)

Alternates: Nastia Lukin, Alicia Sacramone

Coaches: Bela Karolyi, Eduard Nechai

In my team, for floor and beam, they may not have been the strongest tumblers, but they are spectacular dancers. My team is mostly gymnastics from way back when, but if they were in these times they could be better tumblers. Even if some of my gymnastics on these events might not have pulled of the difficulty of others, they make the judges and audience smile. Though, now a days, in the high levels gymnastics is losing it's art. So, those on floor and beam are to bring the art back. Some, I have just picked because I love their personality, like Shushunova who has the mindset of a football player, and obvious determination, and Oksana Omelianchick who is always smiling and can concentrate well. Lukin and Sacramone are my alternates, because they sre good all around, but weren't my top six (because I picked mainly dancers).
