AGB Awards: 2010 Routine of the Year

Please nominate one routine from the MAG list and one routine from the WAG list.

Email your two favourites to ozgymblog@gmail.com, with any comments you would like to make about the routines (anonymously if you wish), as I will publish them to illustrate why they were deemed the most popular.

Don't forget voting is still open for the rest of the Australian Gymnastics Blog Awards (voting period has been extended). So get your votes in!

Note - Nominees are from Junior and Senior International only. You might note that some of the nominated routines are ones with mistakes or stumbles in them. This because the list was compiled not necessarily on the basis of performances being 'flawless' but rather that they are good examples of technique, composition, daring skill, perseverance and/or personality. And remember - your favourite routine may not be here because 12 months of gymnastics is a lot to go through and often tricky to get video footage of (and, bear in mind, MAG is absolutely not my strong point)!
