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!”
