KHORKINA MUCH?!

Thank you to the commenter who pointed me in the direction of Cintia Rodriguez- another intriguing Spanish gymnast. Cintia is certainly a tall drink of water and very Khorkina-esque in her expressiveness and poise.  She is also incredibly thin, which reminds me of Khorkina and has the awkward leg form when her legs are bent that Khorky had. But again, like Khorkina, when those pins are extended, or showing off their flexibility, they are almost balletic.
Rodriguez's floor is a breath of fresh air among some largely uninspiring Spanish (and world) floor routines.  The interesting- even quite kooky- choreography, paired with her natural elegance and flair for movement does a fascinating floor exercise make!
Watch and behold some actually interesting floor moves- she even gets all Kate Richardson/Bruin chorey at one point!
