Simone wins with a fall but lets be real here she would have deserved it ten fold with 3 falls especially thanks to Kyla not having last years difficulty and falling twice.
Maggie placed third where she belonged period but the overscoring machine of the Woga gymnasts is a complete joke. I need a new thesaurus because I keep using the same word because the same things keep happening.
1. Biles 122.550, 2. Ross 118.300, 3. Nichols 117.900; 4. Baumann 116.100; 5. Skinner 115.450.
If this team is full of Woga gymnasts I hope they finish 8th.lol
Simone was athlete of the year. Her coach, coach of the eyar and Lexie Preissman Sportsperson of the year.
Simone won vault and floor. Kyla won beam and Locklear won bars.

The junior competition was won by an asterisk. ( Bailie Key was missing so does it really matter?)
Leotards for tonight from Inside Gymnastics
Down goes Woga. The overscoring she has been getting makes me not care.
Right Captain obvious Nastia. She did not want to fall. Duh, duh, duh
Simone is too cute. How did she do that. I would fall off.
WHERE IS NICA????????????????????
Messy bar routine from Kocian but we never mention it because she is from Woga. 15.500 is Marta overscoring. Ashton has much better form if not great.
Bozo admitted he was thinking about the money he could get if he did well and that is why he choked so STOP acting like had a chance to beat anyone?
Walk into the view of that Camera Hog Zmeskal.
Way to throw that away Dowell.( 13.650) Nail the toughest part and fall apart for the rest.
The feed is ahead of the TV.
Skinner got a 14.2 on beam. Is that possible.
Simone on beam- Off beam. Two small bobbles but hell, she is human. Bobble on her 2 layouts. Almost nailed
dismount. Bobble on 2.5 turn. Probably should not deserve credit for it.
Ashton hit her bars. They are giving this to Kocian. What BS.
The Woga brigade bad mouth the Ashton routine due to bias.
Meals hit bars. No more leg stuff then anyone else NASTIA
2 small bobbles but nailed all her connections. (beam) Kyla (15.350)
Maggie has one issue on bars but before the mistake she looked great. After the form came apart a little.
Maggie- DTY- Missed it.
Kyla- Bars: ( 15.00)Small leg sep on pak but her Van Lewen was much better than usual. Nice routine.
Baumann- Piked messy DTY. Nastia needs glasses. 14.900 my ass. There was a huge leg separation to start. One to end with crossed legs and she was short and landed forward.
Typical bar routine from SKinner. Messy form. Can we please fire Nastia already.lol she is useless.
LMAO- Nastia just said she’s coached by Chow who coached Shawn Johnson to Olympic gold, ON BEAM. LMAO. This brought tears to my eyes.lol
No floor routine for Meals because we have to watch Simone stand around.
Kyla DTY- (15.250) Hit. Maybe a little short and a little form mess at start but it got better.
8 girls doing AA and we can’t see half of them.
Baumann’s triple form is as bad as Nastia’s and she walks through that routine she doesn’t dance.
Skinner- Piked Cheng. Nastia says she was too close to the vault and she would know. Her shit vault was
The only good news I can come up with is Simone and Kyla will be the only girls around in 2 years from this group.
Kocian- OOB twice. Both feet first pass. I kind of like her floor sometimes but if you can’t hit you stay home.
Shut up Nastia I saw her stick better Amanars. Try paying attention.
Simone is the Queen. No doubt about it. Amazing Amanar. Maybe a bit piked at end.
Yes because Babe Ruth talk makes me want to watch this dribble.lol
Oh wait Babe Ruth was with the Sox when he hit.lol
Its 8.02 and video is not working. Its on now. So far only background news but hell that means no Nastia so I am all for it.
Nastia is dressed like her Grandmother. Why doesn’t someone make her hire a stylist?
Now a picture of the most overrated gymnasts of all time and we get Nastia’s voice too. (GAG ME)
Terin and Marta have the same glasses.lol
Simone on floor (15.500)(6.4)- Better than night one. Big jump on last pass but the rest was Simone being Simone.
Oh Tim smiles has nothing to do with gymnastics you fool.
Nastia just called Simone artistic.lol
Meals on beam: (14.01)Why beam? Her worst event. I missed beginning but she hit. She was short on some leaps and jumps so won’t be a great score.
Macy Toronjo on floor- She should own College gym in a few years. Pretty clean.
Nastia now claims Kim was her idol growing up.lol
Maggie Nichols( 14.750) – beam: Great routine for Maggie. She was short on one leap but the rest was great, for her.
Kyla Ross- (14.800) Floor: Took out the whip to Arabian. Step back on the double like. Nailed the double tuck. Good routine for Kyla.
Nastia pretty much just said she was glad Kyla fell.
Baumann- (15.150) beam. Tim just said her form puts her apart from everyone else as she crosses her feet and legs come apart.
Skinner- Floor: (15.100) Hit her floor. Bad leaps and jumps.
Simone interview.Gabby Aly interview coming up because seeing gymnastics would be so against the damn rules. (showing gym at a gym meet is like showing baseball on ESPN baseball. All we do is see interviews with Justin Verlander.
Results Day 1
Simone is the class of the field. Ross falls twice and doesn’t get held up. The overscoring of Woga is a joke. Ashton’s beam routine was an impossible score. That has to be up there with biggest overscore of all time with Moceanu taking a step and getting a 9.950 on vault at 95 World Trials. Dowell looked messy on bars but much better than Classics. Maggie had a solid night and honestly compared to the shit put up by others I feel Marta doesn’t want her on any team of hers and Skinner was skinner. Hults got nit picked on beam big time so Marta is telling her to retire too. Amelia was also low balled tonight. Her form has issues but no more issues than anyone else yet she gets low scores and everyone else gets ignored.
I had to force myself to watch tonight. I might have to tie myself to a chair with handcuffs to watch Saturday night.
I had no idea Nationals started today. I knew Podium was yesterday but the Seniors are tonight? I have my head in the clouds I guess.
Looking for full results but in all honesty they should just give the title to Bailie Key even though she is “injured” and won’t be competing.
Not sure if I will be live blogging tonight so stay tuned.Like I said before just not very excited for gym right now. I am not in the mood to listen to Nastia that is for sure.
1. Foberg 57.60; 2. Gaskins 57.00; 3. Dennis 56.80; 4. Flatley 56.55; 5. Smith 55.55
The entire competition
Already liking these Juniors. Very little pink in the leotards. They have not been brainwashed.
Sorry I have not been in a mood to blog lately. I am sure we all go through these stages of losing interest in the sport and this is one of those times for me. Not sure who loses interest in a sport during their biggest part of the year but…
Below is Podium training for the women and the Results of the World Youth Olympic games. Alec Yoder moved up to third place for the men (Results here) and Russia’s Seda Tutkhalyan won for the women (Results Here)
Let me know what you thought of Podium training. Gowey is hurt again and out of Nationals.
DIRECT link to the podium training. For some reason it refuses to let me embed it and instead starts with the interviews. This link leads to the actual training videos.
Its a shame Bailie isn’t here she would wipe the floor with this.
She starts out fine but by the the last twenty seconds you can tell she is having a hard time making it through the entire routine. She has a few months so people shouldn’t count her out just yet. She looks noticeably taller as she should because she has to be at least 19 by now
Simone and Adria Biles
Need more proof Nastia is a bitch? Probably not since we all know this but Nastia put this on her facebook page and then deleted it minutes later.
If you click on the picture/screen cap it gets a little bigger.
For those like me who didn’t know what this meant Shawn wore a gold ribbon during the AA at the Olympics in 2008 and Nastia wore the pink scrunchie.
Lets pretend these girls are all still BFF’s because someone says they are. Nastia is clearly still very bitter that Shawn has all the fans and she is teaching spinning classes in New York but hey, there is always the NBC gig to brag about Nastia where you sound like an ignorant phony and come across as a snot. That is something to be proud of.
One beautiful routine after another. This is how gymnastics should look. I just hope they aren’t peaking too early.
