igorgymn2 posted a video of Komova on beam. I believe it’s old, and she falls a couple of times, but it is 100% worth watching.

1) She made the backhandspring + layout stepout + arabian combo. She totally nailed it. It was the most amazing thing ever! Oh, and she did it from a gainer backhandspring.

2) The reason she did it from a gainer backhandspring was because right after it, she did a normal backhandspring into a tucked full twist! She falls, but I had not idea she even trained that skill.

3) Then she goes for a switch ring, which was actually pretty bad. The landing was perfect, but I feel like she bent her leg a bit too much. I hope we won’t see that in competition until it has improved.

4) Next comes her Patterson, which we all knew she had. She fell, but she has landed it in other videos.

Komova has been holding out on us!

    I believed this is not that “old” in 2009 or this year…

    Just hope that Vika will show it off clean in next year!’

    And Thanks for posting this

    I’m dying for that handspring + layout + Arabian combo. So unusual and DEAD ON.

      That is the only part of this new routine that I would really enjoy without improvement.

      I have a feeling she’ll try it at the Voronin Cup this year if she’s still working on it. She’s attempeted it at both of the Voronin Cups she’s competed at in the past, along with the patterson dismount.

      As much as I love that combo, I’m kind of dreaming that she’ll just does a handspring arabian combo and adds a layout stepout mount + layout combo. It’s unrealistic, but it would be amazing.
