Here’s a blast from the past…
I’d love to see Laurie return to the Olympic team once again. Seeing athletes comeback as they get older is very inspirational and good for the sport in general.
I can’t get the video to play. I’m sure she was cute.
Still trying to figure everything out in this new software. I changed it up for a Youtube video. Can you see it now?
It plays for me! I remember coaching that routine. None of my kids looked that flawless, though!
Can you even imagine being another level 3 kid at that meet? When I was a level 3 I was a wobbly little bundle of weirdly proportioned arms and legs.
I cant get over the splits in the routine (split jump, in her back walkover) and her toe point. I wish I knew what this scored. I am guessing like a 9.8 or 9.9 I only saw one little wobble on the half turn.
According to mymeetscores, she scored a 9.65. It would certainly be higher with today’s JO judging.
Her splits and toe point were exquisite.
I can see it now. She was very precise.
I swear that was the level 4 routine.
Yah… might be… I’m not sure what levels were what back then.
L4 for sure, L3 then had no BHS. L5 had BHS BHS and L6 had BHS BT
