I know you really love Yang Yilin but what about Jiang Yuyuan? Her bars don't get as much love as HKX/YYL but her 2009 routine might be my favorite Chinese pirouette fest of all time (even tho she doesn't do a Bi) bc of how good her swing is on the transitions and I've never seen anyone else connect a Ling 1/2 + DLO

I love Jiang Yuyuan on bars! Unfortunately she didn’t really make any EFs because she was always 2-per-country’d out of finals by Qiushuang, Kexin, Yilin, etc., but I loved her Ricna and her FTDLO dismount was really nice. Speaking of Bis, I’ve noticed the Bi has kind of fallen out of favor with the Chinese team - I see a lot more Healys and Lings nowadays. Maybe they’re easier to finish in handstand or something? The Ling always seemed the hardest to me, but obviously I have no idea really.

She also did a beam exhibition
