China's Tan Sixin on the Beam in Stuttgart

Tan Sixin is probably best known as a member of the 2011 Bronze medal winning team at the World Championships in Tokyo.

She is also a Youth Olympic Games gold medalist on the balance beam, after coming in second in the all-around to Viktoria Komova in 2010 in Singapore. Here is Sixin at the DTB Cup last weekend in Stuttgart during the team final.

This routine is beautiful and it's very artistic. The mount sequence has a beautiful balletic flair to it.
