... actually, nobody really elaborated on this GIF! Everyone in the comments was occupied with the excellent Starlin Castro GIF that eventually lost. Speaking for myself, though I think the right GIF won.

(6) Hi, I'm NASTIA LIUKIN'S SPOTTER/DAD.

The best part of the Liukin gif

is obviously the leg raise at the end as though she was pretending it was a real dismount

The fact that this is a 6 seed is crazy.

It’s all the wonder of the Feck gif (which is my 2nd favorite in the bracket so far) without being overplayed as all hell, PLUS a callback to one of the GGOAT (Greatest Gifs Of All Time).

Toughest one, went with Liukin though

Because it is so much the Raptor gif.
