Favorite Routines: Elena Prudunova; Floor Exercise 1997

This edition of Favorite Routines is featuring an awesome routine from a post-Olympics Worlds from Elena Prudunova.

Elena was the McKayla Maroney of the Russian team back in the late 90's leading up to the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney, Australia.
The redhead was a powerful tumbler and vaulter and she's best known for her innovative vault that bears her name, hand spring double front (7.0 difficulty in today's Code of Points). The routine featured is her floor exercise from the 1997 World Championships that got her the bronze medal in the all-around.
