At a Glance

Welcome back to our Olympic coverage. Our next competitor in the Road Gymnastics competition is DH15 from Washington State. She starts her routine smoothly, showing some excellent Engineering and Pavement as she sweeps through the mountainous and treed terrain southwest of the junction with DH28 Port Angeles - Hwy 112/113 Jct (Hwy 112). Some nice Scenic elements there. Now she’s onto the compulsory straightaway. Oh, too bad. There’s plenty of Remoteness throughout her program so the judges will probably overlook a few houses, but the valley’s so wide and so many trees have been cleared that Scenery points will be deducted. But... oh my, what a fantastic finish. Look at that beautiful lake! She’s finishing up along it with what may be the best twisting, waterside run of the competition. It’s amazing that she can contort so much between Lake Crescent and those steep cliffs and still keep her Engineering form. If it weren’t for the slight drop in Pavement at the very end and all the sudden traffic, her grand finale would get perfect marks. Even so, she’s just given one of the best performances of these Olympics.
