Watch Bailie Key's Routines From the Junior Japan Invitational

Over the weekend, Bailie Key killed her competition at the Junior Japan Invitational. She won every single gold medal there was to win.

Yep, just another weekend in the life of Bailie Key.

Well, she didn't win any of the medals on the men's side, but that's beside the point. Bailie is fluid and strong on the uneven bars, and clean and consistent on the floor exercise. Since she's trained by the great Kim Zmeskal, the first woman to win a world championship title, I've said she reminds me of a mini Kim. Well, I've said that about all the Texas Dreams' girls because they all have a style of beam that's very similar to 1992 Kim.

She's starting to remind me of Kim's 1992 Olympic teammate, Shannon Miller. Shannon was always consistent and nearly flawless and she won just about every title she could. Bailie is starting to remind me of a Shannon/Kim hybrid.

Here are her routines from uneven bars and floor exercise:
