Since FIG take out rope from 2011 to 2016, then we hardly have another chance to watch Zhenya doing Rope rouitne again, so let’s just remembering her classic rope exercise! I uploaded Zhenya’s classic performance in OG Beijing 2008 with CCTV HD coverage to youtube (1920 x 1080)! For me, 2008 Rope is Zhenya’s BEST Rope routine! Many Thanks to my friend “RC” for sharing this video to me!
here you are, enjoy your watching!
English translation for the Chinese comment! (translated by Zoe Wan and RC for the elements translation!)
“This is Russian gymnast-Kanaeva, Kanaeva ranked 1st @qualification. Let’s see her outstanding performance! and from 1:51 the commentator say: “Wow! The difficulty of Kanaeva’s this routine is very very high! There are 3 split leaps with turn of the trunk and passing into the rope and 2 stag leaps with ring and another a very high difficult element-back scale 360° in this routine (Noe by Zoe Wan: he say it wrong with 720° XD), it’s a very high difficult element and it’s hard to do it!” (comment from slow motion) “With back scale 360° at the beginning and then a throw without hand (with foot). 3 split leaps with turn of the trunk and passing into the rope, very high difficulty! The point for one split leap with turn of the trunk is 0.2 and you will get bonus by passing into the rope, it’s a combination of the difficulty with apparatus!”

Laura: You are welcome 🙂 and like Ana said: Zhenya is one of the best rope workers! some people ever named her “master of the rope” 🙂 For me her rope 2006-2010 all are very great and brilliant routines! only the one that she did since WC Pesaro 2010 is not good orz……..the Pigalle (Interlude) one is sooooo much better and if they didn’t change her rope rouitne just few weeks before the WCH Moscow I doubt that Zhenya will lose in rope final…
Thank you so much Zoe for your translation =D
I love so much this routine and the spanish “flamenco” music! But I can’t chose between 2008 and 2009 rope routines.
she´s definitely one of the best rope workers I´ve ever seen top three.
and for those that say that Russians can´t handle rope………………… ¡¡:P!!
Thank you very much for your comments Joao and Tanya, My dear friend ❤
and You are welcome Tanya, it's my pleasure to share Zhenya's great performance with her Fans! 🙂
One of my favorite part in this routine is @1:08! Zhenya throw and caught the rope under her leg, amazing and so incredible!!!!
Thank you so much, Zoe, for the translation!!! I like the detailed description of elements Zhenya executed. And thank you for bringing as back to 2008 so we can enjoy again and again Zhenya’s performance!!
Always her best rope routine ❤ I will miss her, so so so much.
