A pixelated re-imagining of the 1996 Olympic TF leo. It would be awesome to see a modern take on that leotard for the 2016 Olympics.

Retrospective: 3 Up, 3 Count »

extratwist:

Ostensibly, the “3 up, 3 count” rule for team finals creates parity. In this system, countries with a few great gymnasts, but without significant depth, can field a competitive World or Olympic team. Right?

Well. I remain skeptical about this tendency towards smaller teams and fewer “counting”…
