Hope you’ve had a super happy weekend hoopers and that you’ve all been able to spend some time inside your hoops. It’s time for us to count down the top ten most buzz worthy posts of the week (as based on reader response) and what’s in our top ten this go around? We thought we’d probably see Misty Gonzales: Love is War on the list, and we were suprised Hoop Hop with Miss Kellee didn’t make the cut either, but there were so many great things to share this week it was harder than ever to make the list. So let’s start things off at number ten and work our way up to the number one spot of the week. Here’s Hooping.org’s Top Ten List for August 5th – August 11th, 2012.
10a: We have a tie for our tenth spot so first up we have a former Olympic Rhythmic Gymnastic Silver Medalist, Yuliya Raskina, sharing her hula hoop artistry (45 Points).
