Favorite Routines: Mai Murakami; Floor Exercise

This edition of Favorite Routines is featuring Japan's Mai Murakami on floor exercise.

This is a great routine. The tumbling is clean and powerful, the landings are good and she completes a bad ass quadruple turn. The music is an interesting choice, but it adds a mysterious aspect to it. Plus, she is just so cute, it's hard not to like her.

Mai made the floor finals at this year's world championships in Antwerp, Belgium. But, alas, she was cheated out of a medal on floor exercises when she came in fourth place. She was robbed, ROBBED, I tell you! Sigh. My greatest dream for her is that she comes back and wins a medal next year.
