Music miscues can't stop Washington gymnast Allison Northey
SALT LAKE CITY – Technical difficulties are the last thing you want to deal with at a pressure-packed meet like the Pac-12 Gymnastics Championships. But for Washington's Allison Northey, it's no big deal.
Despite having the wrong music for her floor routine blare through the Huntsman Center – three times, no less – the UW junior managed to not only keep a smile on her face, but to laugh and engage with the crowd. In return, they gave her a huge round of applause when the correct song came on and she started her routine.
Watch the above video to see the mishap. Northey earned a 9.850 for her performance.
