can’t get over this olympic games…
can’t stop thinking about yana’s amazing emotional strength and maturity, and her beautiful ribbon routine.
can’t get over rita’s surprised reaction, she just didn’t believe it could happen.
can’t get over the amazing friendship and support of RIANA. rita was really sad for yana, and yana was really happy for rita.
can’t get over ganna winning the medal she waited four years for, and the happines of ireesha.
can’t get over the heartbreak of melitina.
can’t get over sali’s injurie, seeing the pain on her face during her amazing clubs routine, and then crying with her trainer.
can’t get over the beautiful international friendships.
it seems like it all was just a dream…

SORRY TO SUDDENLY BARGE INTO YOUR ASK WITH RANDOM QUESTIONS but i'm interested in watching rhythmic gymnastics in rio and was wondering where i could find a rundown on the gymnasts competing there? like, who to watch for and recommended routines, etc. i think i can figure out basic scoring stuff but i'd like to know more about the athletes! i've always thought RG was really cool but i know even less about it than AG, haha.

UPD: see preview for groups

I’m actually always excited about such questions! So here are the gymnasts of the 2016 Olympics (don’t know if you have time to watch all this, but RG routines are pretty short, so… =D):

INDIVIDUALS

Yana Kudryavtseva (Russia)

She’s the favourite to win gold. Basically, she’s been dominating the whole quad. Was not at her best this year after suffering a foot injury, but still managed to win almost everything when it mattered. Most known for her ball work (I, personally, like her clubs more though) and consistency. Also she’s quite a reserved gymnast, when it comes to expression.

Routines to watch (don’t know if you wanted to watch the ones from this year, since you’ll see them at the Olympics anyway, but I’ll put some just in case): ball 2013, clubs 2015, clubs 2016, ball 2016.
