Surprisingly, Dancing to Zelda Music Won't Win You a Gold Medal

By Sam Gibbs on at

You would have thought that picking an awesome score for your gymnastics routine, like that from Zelda performed by none other than Lindsey Stirling, would instantly win you a gold medal, but sadly not.

Mexican gymnast, Elsa Garcia Rodriguez Blancas (what a name!), found out that music doesn't sway the hearts of judges, even if it is the geekiest thing she could have done. Apparently you also have to have a decent routine too, as she placed just 35th in qualifying.

Obviously the judges just don't have any musical taste, or, umm, aren't geeks. [Kotaku]

For reference, here's the full arrangement sans gymnast.
