10 Outstanding Routines That Defined the 2021 NCAA Gymnastics Season
It's hard to single out the best of the best when you're talking about performances in collegiate gymnastics. There's so much talent, near-perfection, and excitement that courses through the veins of the sport and its show-stopping athletes. But this season, which came to a close after last weekend's NCAA Women's Gymnastics Championships, has been nothing short of entertaining and empowering. It's what gymnastics fans needed after a 2020 schedule that was cut short.
As a devoted fan and former gymnast, I've put together 10 of my personal favorite routines from the 2021 season, which you can find ahead. The list includes performances on all four events (vault, bars, beam, floor), and you might recognize some viral moments from this year. Yes, there are countless others I wished to add, but we'd be here for hours if that was the case. Prepare yourselves for fun dance moves, stuck landings, pointed toes, and incredible athleticism. Plus, if you're looking for more highlights, check out this separate roundup of floor routines set to popular songs.
