performed by Vitrichenko in her last competitive seasons. Nina and
Elena returned to the old routine they used on 1999 European
Championships 1999. It was right decision, because the routine is
really wonderful. The music of this routine is a re-mix of Ukrainian
National song "Tizh mene pidmanula". Like always, Elena
shows great work with apparatus ,artistism. Starting position is
interesting. Rope is tied around Elena's body and Vitrichenko stands
in the vertical spagat which reminds Latin letter "P'. (look at
the music starts, Lena easily starts in absolutely straight spagat,
but not for too long. She put her leg down and like introduces the
rope. At the
same time she prepares for penche balance and soon stands in it with a
rope on the foot. After
that, Vitrichenko ties the rope around her neck and holds the ending
of the rope, which ties her right leg. Than her hand unties the
rope around the leg, but not around the head and Elena does some
pirouettes , Then Elena puts the rope down and makes a forarme
The apparatus can fall
from Elena's hands, but when it jumps from the floor, Vitrichenko easily
catches it. Then Lena stands up and runs to another corner of the floor.
In the same time rope is doing weird and funky things. She has also done
very good leaps for her years. From the moment when Vitrichenko starts
to run and to the moment when Vitrichenko starts to run and to the
moment she stands in vertical spagat, you can start to sing:
Ti zh mene pidanula ,
Ti zh mene pidvela,
Ti zh mene molodogo
Z uma-rozumu zvela!"
Next Elena starts like
to play with rope and jumping through it. In these moments you can sing:
Ti kazala v Ponedilok.
sch pidemo mi na rinok
Ya priyshov - tebe nema
As soon as Vitrichenko
ends jumping through rope, stop singing because the words are over. Elena
puts the apparatus on the feet , stands in vertical spagat and starts to
turn the apparatus near her shoulder.
After the second turn Elena
catches the rope into both hands and moves to the left right corner (if to
look from judges position. The Lena sits down on knees and puts the rope on
her legs. Now you can start singing again : "Ti zh mene pidmanula...)
Probably singing with you Lena does a forwards roll, "catches" left
leg and moves it to herself. Vitrichenko's right hand holds the rope Then
Elena takes the both endings of the rope in two hands and turn the apparatus.
After 5th or 6th Turn , Lena stands up, does pirouettes and leaps to another
In the leap Elena throws the
rope and tthen catches it. Leaping Elena moves diagonally. Finally, she throws
the rope for the last time in the routine, makes a walkover, catches the rope.
ties it around the
body and ends the fabulous routine.
