She loves rock and roll too

October 20, 2008

Maricela Cantu Mata of Mexico used a version of “I Love Rock and Roll” for her floor exercise music in Beijing.  It was different than Chellsie’s music and I liked it better.  Maricela’s version used a violin for the vocal parts and I think the rest of the music was changed or subdued somehow so it went with the violin better.  

Sorry, sports fans.  I could not find Maricela’s Olympic routine on youtube.  She had two different ones in 2007 and early 2008.  Here’s a cute gala routine.

US prelims showdown in doubt?

Chellsie hurt her ankle.  I am wondering if it’s bad enough that she won’t do AA in prelims.  Nothing against Nastia or Shawn but I want to see an upset in AA qualifications during prelims.  Upsets are exciting – unless you’re the one being upset.
