Bajacalifornian Alexa Moreno in the Artistic Gymnastics Final at Tokyo Olympics

She advanced to the finals in the vaulting event

The Mexicali native, Alexa Moreno, will compete for one of the Olympic medals in Tokyo 2020 in one of the most difficult apparatuses and where more strength is required to achieve the incredible stunts performed by the participants. The competition for which she will compete for the medal will be on August 1st.

But the Mexican gymnast not only stood out for her great strength and complicated vault during the qualifiers, but also surprised with her original floor routine, for which she used the theme song from Demonizadle Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba, an anime that has become very popular in recent years.

This was interpreted as a nod not only to the otaku community, but also to the home of the Olympic Games: Tokyo, Japan where the anime originated.

Alexa Moreno has a good chance of winning the bronze or silver, since she was ranked number 8 in the qualifiers, which are led by Olympic champion Simone Biles.

Biles is the American who has made history for the difficulty of all her routines, and is the favorite to win most of the events and the prestigious all-around, which is the compilation of the four events of Olympic gymnastics: floor, balance beam, vault and uneven bars.
