Favorite Routines: Lauren Mitchell Floor Exercise

Lauren Mitchell's 2010 floor exercise routine at the World Championships was a landmark one.

It was Lauren's first gold medal at the world championships and it was the first Australian female gymnast to win a gold medal at the world championships. At first, Lauren herself couldn't believe it.



 "I wanted to prove on the floor that I belonged in the top three...I wanted to prove to the judges that Australia is up there with the world...I know I had a few landing errors...But my leaps and jumps were pretty good. I'd never done a triple pivot in a floor routine before, so that was a first...I thought I'd come fourth again...I had to look twice at the scoreboard. I thought it was a 14.6. Then when I reali[z]ed* it was a 14.8, and I knew that the Russian had got a 14.7, I had to think. Is an eight more than a seven? I was in shock".

Without futher adieu, here is Lauren's gold medal winning floor exercise routine:
