A largely uncelebrated member of the fantastic assembly of talent that the crumbling Soviet union had to offer in 1992 she may be (she doesn’t even have a Wikipedia page), but Elena had my favourite bars set of them all.
Her jaeger is so high and shows such amazing flexibility in her hips, but mainly I love this routine for the final combination which striked me as being incredibly difficult and original both in the context of its time and the present day. A stalder to immediate endo straight into a double front half out dismount of a quality that puts others who perform it then and now to shame. It really does make for a fantastic end.
It is routines like this that represent what I often think of as the "randomness" of some scoring in the 10 system. I have no idea when I look back at certain routines why they were not front runners and this is one of them.
It’s a real shame Elena never seemed to get the recognition she deserved for the quality of this routine. Personally I would set its quality far higher than Gutsu’s.
