Heartening surprise from the Southwest
Many provinces from the southwest of China are relatively weak in gymnastics development. It is therefore a happy surprise for worldwide gym fans when many junior girls showcased their upgrades during the recent Li Ning Cup (Southwest region).
From top to bottom we have:
Qin Ziyi (2002) from Guangxi province showcasing a 3 ½ twists and triple twists into punch front.
Yin SiSi (2003) from Hubei province rocking beam with 2 beautiful acro series and an awesome switch ring into Korbut.
Zhou Ruiyu (2003) from Sichuan province with a Van Leeuwen. Her bars D-score rocketed to 5.5 in the newest code from a 4.9 in old code in just one year!
