At first time, I left her ribbon routine for the last one that I would see, so I watched her hoop, her ball, her clubs and then… her ribbon. For me, her ribbon is perfect, and when I mean perfect, I mean the most beautiful work that I ever seen in my whole life. The piano, the colors, the shapes, her leotard… and the expression, everything makes the show. Cause yes, her ribbon is one show, not a simple routine. Her start position is very original, her movements are in the same time of the piano beats, the music matchs too much with this routine. So… no doubts, she will be the first with this apparatus. She is one wonderful dancer, her expression is very good.
When I saw her hoop routine, I felt in love with the music, I love happy musics for routines, so her energy , her skills and everything she does for me is awesome… I enjoyed her new hoop very much, soon it will be better then 2009 routine, we can not forget that we are only in the start of the season, so as the firts gymnast… Zhenya will show us the perfect in action.
Her performance with the ball reminds me a lot one mistic character, like oneself… her green leaotard is beautiful… and the music is very exciting, her spins, pirouettes are really good and strong. The final is very dangerous, her last catch is very breathtaking… I feel scary with her when it’s time to finish the routine, but one powerful routine.
The bolero, the new leotard… oh, her clubs routine are my second favourite above all Zhenya’s new routines, she is very ellegant. One thing that cacths all the time my eyes in this routines is her jumps, so high and really fast. The final is brillant… and of course, her kick club to make the difficult is fabulous, really loved it.
She is a champion, so… if she is in the national team, no doubts she is very good, so, don’t worry about anything Zhenya, we trust you and believe in you. Go Go until the last stand in London. Kisses of Brazil. João Lucas Nunes.
