May National Team Camp - Alyssa Baumann

First year senior Alyssa Baumann is finding her niche.

In this video from the May national team training camp, Alyssa was shown training beam and bars. She's got those beautiful WOGA lines and it's especially apparent on the beam.
She is shown training a split leap to Onodi to a straddle jump which gets her 0.20 in connection bonus for both sides of the connection. Alyssa has the flair of a Lilia Podkepaeyva and the grace and extension of an Anna Pavlova.

On bars, her handstands are beautiful and she dismounts with a near perfect full in dismount that get's above the height of the bar.

Alyssa is looking very confident and poised, I wonder if she keeps this up, could she be a part of the Nanning Worlds team this year?
