Keep the Flame Alive

Oct 28, 2022

Ever wonder what goes into creating an Olympic gymnastics floor routine? Choreographer and gymnastics judge Nicole Langevin joins us to explain some of the required elements and how gymnasts pack them into a minute-and-a-half.

Among Nicole's routines include TKFLASTANI Chellsie Memmel's comeback routine and TKFLASATNI Houry Gebeshian's Rio 2016 routine (which has a really cool story behind it).

Follow Nicole and learn more about her services:

In our Albertville 1992 history moment, Alison has the story of these Games' enormous medals, made by Lalique, and the trend they started.

Plus, Paris 2024 has announced its plans for the Paralympics Opening Ceremony, and they are cool!
