Elisabetta Preziosa is an Italian gymnast best known to fans for her amazing flexibility, lines, and toe point. Recently, she had her inherent dance ability put on display in a photoshoot. Betta, as she is affectionately called, placed some of these photos on her instagram after a shoot with Giada Napolitano, @giady03.

Preziosa was named to the 2012 Olympic team where she competed on balance beam. Unfortunately, she fell in both team qualifications and team finals. With a strong crop of new seniors, it is hard to know where she falls on the Italian team since her difficulty score isn't always competitive with her teammates. However, no one is really able to match her elegance and what she may not have in difficulty, she earns with excellent execution.

Elisabetta Preziosa won the silver medal on beam in the 2007 European Youth Olympic Festival as a junior. At the 2009 Mediterranean Games competing as a senior, Preziosa won silver with the team and in the all-around final. She also won bronze on beam and gold on floor. She finished 5th on beam in the 2009 World Championship event finals.

Perhaps one of Preziosa's shining moments is the 2011 European Championships where she shared the podium with teammate Carlotta Ferlito. Preziosa finished 3rd on beam, earning the bronze medal, and also had a skill named after her - a full turn with free leg held backwards and upwards.

  3. She also has a beautiful floor exercise! I saw the videos of the Italian championships! I think that she is one of the best gymnast of the last quad! Her style is unique and appreciated even outside her country, her signature turn requires much flexibility! When she is self confident, her beam exercise is better then Ferlito's one!

    1. I agree with you, Ferlito is strong and self confident but has no elegance, she is a bit anonymous! Preziosa is always recognizable thanks to her unique style!
