Olessia Dudnik- 1989 World Championships Beam Event Final.

I just love love this routine. Its packed with difficulty but at the same time it was done with such elegance. Can you believe this was back in 1989? With a full twist on the beam and a triple twist dismount? She may have had a couple of steps on the dismount but still. This routine is just gorgeous.

Svetlana Boginskaya’s wonderful floor routine at the 1989 World Championships that helped her win the all-around. Totally unique choreography.

Today’s classic is Yang Bo’s beam routine during event finals at the 1989 World Championships. It is exquisite until the end. I think even the judges were distraught that she messed up her dismount.
