    Crazy how much more springy the FX mat is these days. Too springy some
    times (2012 London for example) – but certainly carries current gymnasts a
    bit.

    wow, the americans don’t make gymnasts like this anymore.

    So many problems with the double layout. She was not ever capable of
    pulling that around. She never had that kind of power. They should have
    taken it out and let her keep doing two full twisting doubles. In Atlanta
    she might have snuck in for bronze if she fixed her problems on floor
    exercise. He short double layout and the ensuing out of bounds certainly
    cost her about .4 tenths.

      She had a pulled ham string and couldn’t do the full in pike that is why
      she did the layout and it wasn’t as bad as you make it out you be.

      Mag 7 , It’s like no one knows how injured she was.

    My favourite Shannon floor routine. I wish she’d been able to hit like
    this in the Olympics. I know the DLO was piked down here, and chest low on
    the full twisting double, but she was so good at hiding that stuff. She
    didn’t really have enough power for the DLO though, I’d have liked for them
    to have realised that and structured the routine a bit differently. Might
    have helped with the final pass too.

      I agree with you. This is my favorite floor routine ever from Shannon
      Miller. I think it is absolutely beautiful and I thought the same thing – I
      wish she would have executed this routine exactly the same at the Olympics!
      I had a feeling, however, that she was always going to find the double
      layout in particular to be very challenging and it did end up biting her a
      bit.

    My two fave american gymnasts (Miller and Atler) used this music in their
    Olympic year :D

    the dance sequence before her third pass, ending with a double turn, is
    quite lovely and well done

    In terms of tumbling it´s definitely her most difficult floor exercise and
    well done, although in terms of some of her skills it’s not the precise and
    mechanical Shannon that we used to see some years before;

    this was rough for her but she pulled every last bit around and was super
    happy,as was I

    This was a good routine. Had she done it at the Games she might have won
    silver in the All Around and a bronze in floor finals.

    For me, that was one of the rare performances that actually uses the music
    with the choreography.

    She really didn’t need to do the double layout to be competitive. This
    routine I believe was the only time she successfully performed the double
    layout, which eventually would be her undoing in the Olympic All-Around
    finals later that summer with an under-rotated double layout. I would have
    loved to see her do an arabian double front tucked or even a layout triple
    twist in the first pass.

      She only performed it 3 times. She also had a broken wrist, pulled
      hamstring and countless other injuries at this time. She had planned a
      double pike but it hurt her hamstring so she couldn’t do it.

    what if, just what if?…. but now Simone Biles is just heads above them
    all, including Dominique Dawes who should’ve won it all

      Dawes was overscored. So many form issues they ignored.

      Dawes was highly underscored in the Barcelona olympics.

      no she wasn’t. Her compulsories were pathetic and her bars had no swing.
      She was below average and overscored

      +Not Saying I wasn’t talking about compulsory and bars. I meant her regular
      floor exercise. Sorry if I confused you though.

      Her floor was still overscored. She was lucky in 92
