Second to last Sydney 2000 video! It’s Esther Moya’s floor routine from event finals. If you’ll remember, Esther was the one whose awesome vault got Spain the score they needed to push past Australia into that final spot for team finals. Sorry, Australia, but this girl sure knows how to deliver under pressure!
Esther got a 9.70 for this routine and placed fourth, which is kind of crazy. 9.7 was a really good score back then, and she wasn’t even top 3! Then again, she did have Zamolodchikova, Khorkina, and Amanar in the top 3….also three incredible gymnasts.
Anyways, there is some incredible tumbling in this routine with some top-notch landings. I also enjoy her semi-wild choice of music! It fits well with the wild leotards the Spanish seem to enjoy so much, haha!
