Favorite male gymnast: This changes from day to day, honestly. I think at the moment, I'd have to say Kohei Uchimura

Favorite female gymnast: Definitely Samantha Shapiro

Favorite American male gymnast: Does Charlie Tamayo count as American? If so, him. If not, I'll go with Sasha Artemev.

OOOOOOO, I love this thread. Anyways:
1. David Kikuchi (he is Canadian)
2. Nastia Liukin (I have her autograph!!)
3. Nastia is American, so I'll choose another: Shawn Johnson (I'm getting her autograph!)
 
1. For me it has to be Elena Mukhina, mainly for her wonderful grace and balletic quality in all her work. She made the sport not just exciting but beautiful to watch, it's just so sad what happened to her :(

2.Well this is tied for me between two very different people, Lauren Mitchell (the Australian gymnast) because I love her modern, new take on gymnastics (especially her floor routine) and the other is Catherine Lyons. She is a 9 year old English girl currently on our elite track and she won national level 3 and had missed out on first place the previous year at level 4 only due to a technical error with her floor music which lost her .3. She has incredible flexibility and strength but also has an enormous amount of emotion in her current floor routine that is hardly ever seen in a 9 year old. She already has her double back and skills that are much harder than she is allowed to do in her current level.

3. Favourite american gymnast for me has to be Nastia as well because of her wonderful lines and grace

OMG I actually LOVE Catherine!! I follow her on youtube all the time :) All of team sparkle are amazing, but Catherine has something special, i think she'll go a long way.

The First Perfect 10!

Nadia Comeneci of course.
She had amazing grace. That is a talent most gymnasts never receive.
