Je t' adore!!!

I know the tumbling is questionable, as is at least one of the leaps, especially for a Soviet gymnast, but still, there are a few reasons why I still adore this routine of Irina Viatinina's;


Or watch it HERE

1.  The music.  I love it (except for a tiny part in the middle).  It's dramatic and BIG!
2.  The handstand pirouette with one leg bent.  Very cool.
3.  But most of all, it's about the arms.  Those beautiful arms.  I'm talking particularly about the section from 10 seconds to thirty seconds.  That segment of choreography is gorgeous.  Classic and a teeny bit avante garde at the same time.  And the way her arms flow through the moves is exquisite.
