Morning Yasssssssss, Hunty: Danusia Francis Beam Routine
(Facebook: UCLA Gymnastics)
UCLA’s Danusia Francis scored a perfect ten on her beam routine earlier this week and I need y’all to catch this dismount. Apparently it’s one of her signatures, but I’ve never seen it before and I bout stood straight up off my couch when she stuck that. And her spirit fingers are just the cutest! We might see her in the Olympics this year. In 2012 she almost made the British team, but she served as an alternate instead. This year she’s competing for Jamaica so she might actually make it to the big show.
I love how the colored girls are truly giving it to the gymnastics world these days. I mean, aside from Simone and Gabby at the very top of the sport, clips from college meets keep going viral and I have yet to see the next Shannon Miller or Svetlana Khorkina or Shawn Johnson going viral. It’s always a brown girl. Danusia’s teammate Sophina DeJesus went viral a couple of months ago, but it was Lloimincia Hall’s floor routine from awhile back that really set the tone. Go ‘head, y’all. Shake the sport up some more. Let me see a nae nae at the Olympics.
