Happy Birthday to the Absolute Queen

My favorite gymnast of all times, three-time world champion Maria Petrova ( 1993, 1994, 1995), also a winner of the European titles (1992,1994), one European cup (1993), the SummerUniversiade title in 1995, and two 5th places at the Olympics (1992, 1996).

While she was most celebrated for her hoop and ball, this less known routine with rope remains very exciting to me because of the choice of music and choreography and the amazing work with the rope.
