17. Svetlana Khorkina - Russia - 1996 Olympics - All Around
Svetlana is one of my favorite gymnasts to watch on floor, so you’re gonna see her a couple times on this list. I love how theatrical she is, how she makes eye contact, her dance, and she always has great music. With her height, she has a different kind of presence on floor. If you’re a dramatic gymnast, floor is your stage.
someone tell me HOW Anna Pavlova didn’t get a medal in Beijing?! i just watched all four of her routines and to me,there was really only like 2 mistakes. a wobble on beam and a tiny step on the dismount and a step on her vault. WTF?! i don’t rem what place she got but daaaaang. i really hope she continues to improve in 2012 and makes the Olympic Team. I didn’t really follow her before but I’m on the Pavlova team NAOW.
