Eurovision and gymnastics (Part 1)

I’ve always loved the Eurovision Song Contest (even though I dislike 90% of the songs…) and I’m always happy when I hear a song from it being used in gymnastics.  I’ve decided to compile a list of some of the “ESC” routines that I could think of.

Eurovision is more popular with RG gymnasts but several songs have found their way to AG. The most famous one is probably Wild Dances by Ruslana (who won the contest in 2004) used by Jordyn Wieber in 2011/2012.

Sam Peszek (USA) 2007

Kim Janas (Germany) 2011

Lara Omahen (Slovenia) 2015/2016

Bulgaria Balls/Ribbons 2013
