Olivia Vivian and Melanie Jones helped Oregon State University to their first team win of the season on Friday.
Olivia competed bars (9.875) and floor (9.75) (and beam!), while Mel did beam only and suffered a fall (9.3). The OSU girls managed to hold off the other college teams to take the Salbasgeon Suites Invitational team title.
You can see video of Olivia's rockin' rollin' new floor routine here. Nice work from the girl who usually specialises on bars - watch out for the drilled double pike landing! Gotta love that AC/DC action (not to mention the hint of Lauren Mitchell on the second tumbling pass...)
You might also be wondering what happened to Monique Blount, who headed to George Washington University last year as the other Aussies headed to Oregon.
Well, Monique is having a bad run of injuries that are keeping her off the floor. She was out for all of last year, and unfortunately has now injured her ACL, meaning she also has to kiss 2010 goodbye. However, reports from the college say she is on track for recovery, and will be ready to proudly represent the GWU Colonials in the 2011 competitive season. Get well soon, Monique!
