Favorite Routines: Svetlana Boguinskaya, Floor Exercise

Svetlana Boguinskaya is known as the "Belarussian Swan". She's a three-time Olympic veteran and her routines are still beloved.

This edition of Favorite Routines will feature Svetlana's perfect 10 scoring floor exercise from the 1989 World Championships in Stuttgart, Germany. This routine won Svetlana her third gold medal of this championships, she'd already brought home a gold in the team competition and the all around. This routine is perhaps best known for it's choreography.
Watch and you'll see Svetlana play some serious air guitar that would make Wayne and Garth from Wayne's World (Saturday Night Live) proud.

Think this routine would make it into one of their famous top ten lists? It certainly makes someone's top ten lists and I'd have to say, it's definitely on mine.
