Tamara Yerofeeva - Ball 2002

This routine was composed for Toma just in few weeks before European Championships. The music impressed Yerofeeva and she decided to change ball routine, even though it was very risky because new balls like to roll out of the carpet a lot. So there is crystal routine, crystal girl and crystal ball, which can't break but go out of the carpet. She starts routine in a beautiful attitude with ball lying on her back.(photo 1) Toma starts the routine by slowly doing magnificent tourlent with leg high in irobesque and turn on 360 (TV 0,5 AV 0,1) - photo 2 -  and balance with leg high in attitude (0,5). Then she throws ball, does a beautiful position in irobesque on toes and catches in knees, forming a perfect line there as well (AV 0,2)  Photo 1
