The pressure is increasing on Louis Smith to live up to his billing as the favourite to win Strictly Come Dancing and secure his place in this years final after coming third in the first-of-its-kind fusion dance show on Saturday. His coach PAUL HALL reveals the secret of why Louiss arms look so graceful while dancing and how he is sure his pupil can clinch a place in the final three.THERE seems to be a lot of discussion about Louiss arms at the moment. Wonderful, tender, sexy, and long were all used to describe his upper limbs on Saturdays show. Well, I can reveal that Louiss arms are indeed uncommonly long. Those of you familiar with Da Vincis Vitruvian Man will know that a mans arm span should equal his height. I measured Mr Smiths arm span a few years ago and was amazed to see that they exceeded his height by more than 20 centimetres! Not only good for extra clearance when circling around a pommel horse, but definitely an advantage when trying to appear tender and graceful in a passionate clinch. So I agree with the long bit but, sorry Louis, I can never ever see you as sexy, no matter what the rest of the watching audience seems to be thinking. There seems to be loads of tens coming out in the shows scoring now. Is there really such a thing as perfection? The debate has raged for a number of years in gymnastics circles and I still think you have to be careful when dishing out those maximum scores. I remember Louis as a 12-year-old going to a British Championship and watching the gymnast before him score a whopping 9.6 on pommel horse. I told him to do his best but thought that he couldnt beat that. He jumped on, inserted a difficulty element that I had never seen him do before, and promptly scored 9.7. Well I wasnt going to beat him with my normal routine was I? came his response. You can be sure that he will be throwing some tricks in the coming weeks. Keep going Louis!
