Catalina Ponor is nuts

January 13, 2013

 

and this is pretty impressive. I think she would have had this if she did it out of the pit.

A new article with quotes from Aly on why she went to Newtown.

Gold medal gymnast Aly Raisman visited the centre and a local gymnastics school, where one little girl told her it was the best day of her life.

“A lot of the kids who died were young gymnasts, so I felt like I had connection to them,” Raisman said. “It was such an easy thing to do to go and hang out with them. It made me feel really good to do something for them.”

January camp info via our favorite dictator

February 1, 2012

Not me silly people. Abomb of course.

Here you go. This is the best news possible. For me at least.

AA:

1. Jordyn
2. Kyla (and I hear it was CLOSE to ^^^)
3. Aly

Finnegan has a huge SV on beam and did great on floor too.

Wofford has “never looked better”.

Nastia verified bars, scored low but it’s evidently great for her to be even this far at this point.

First Kyla being close to Jordyn is great. It means Marta isn’t going to screw the new kid to add Nastia to a team.

My favorite part is Nastia scoring low. Maybe Marta will do the right thing and not over score her to keep her in the running.

Explain to me how ” it’s evidently great for her to be even this far at this point” even makes sense? It’s less then 6 months away from qualifying to the team. If she is this far off then maybe Abomb’s opinion is wishful thinking. We all know GGMB is a “Nastia is perfect ” zone or you get banned.

Unless this is Nastia giving out info to make it look like she is super women for coming back with only a few months to go.

What do you think?

Nastia’s new gig

November 24, 2010

Don’t quote me here because I am not sure I read it right but I was reading the TV guide and I could have sworn I read that Nastia was going to be on an episode of the Biggest loser November 30th teaching stretching exercises. I haven’t seen this info anywhere else so I thought I would share. See Nastia fanatics I can be nice too:)

A day in the life with Beth Tweddle

November 18, 2010

Aunt Joyce had this up a few days ago but I just watched it. After watching this video if you don’t think Beth Tweddle is absolutely charming then you have no judge of character.

WOW

November 18, 2010

Watch Sui Li and Deng Linlin’s beam routines from the Chinese National games above. The two best routines done by any gymnasts this year. Dare I say they were even a little underscored.

Just imagine if either of these girls had done these at Worlds. Ana Porgras would have been a bronze medalist. Just two amazing routines.

Fighting at IG

November 17, 2010

The regular trolls are calling other people trolls which in itself is kind of f****** hilarious but seriously why can’t we all just get along?

;)

Heather the biggest troll of all time has some how become part of the group of gang members that have trolled the board for years. Makes you wonder.

Shawn Johnson’s comeback

November 16, 2010

Shawn is a nice kid. She seems genuine and she isn’t a phony biatch like Naaaastia (Those extra A’s are for Naaasdaaaaack:) but I am having serious doubts about her comeback.

Here is a link to some new pictures at Universal Sports. She looks great. She still isn’t back in complete shape but she looks better and better each time we see new pictures.

Here is an article about how Marta wants Shawn at the November camp after Shawn’s coach sent her some videos. She isn’t doing full routines yet which is probably wise being she is coming back from injuries but this leads me to my comment about Shawn’s comeback being doubtful.

Shawn always had great form. Legs together no crossed feet or legs on her twists but the one knock on her gymnastics is she never hits the complete split in her leaps and looking at these pictures it looks like she isn’t even attempting to fix this issue. That is sad. She needs to acknowledge this issue and FIX it. Not just pretend it didn’t matter. Now it isn’t fair to say she isn’t attempting to fix this issue since it is only one picture but I hope she does something about her only real issue. Rumor is she is taking dancing lessons so her artistic impression should improve but I always felt she wasn’t as bad of a dancer as the Nastia fanatical society made her out to be. She looks like a ballerina compared to Carly Patterson. Shawn wasn’t artistic but she had presentation. Which is more then she ever got credit for.

In total non gym related news this blog is DEAD ON about MLB not allowing viedoes on youtube. WELL SAID!

Chinese National Games

November 16, 2010

He Kexin now has a 7.4 start value on the uneven bars and she easily beat he teammate to win the UB title. She had some form issues and her score was a lot ridiculous but she hits she wins and she usually deserves it.

I’ll add beam and floor finals when avail

Hypocrite Fie has not changed

October 30, 2010

She misses the ten. She misses the beauty of a, b and c skills. LMAO The reason the code was changed was because she ruined the sport.

She was the one that wanted Dominqiue Dawes as the face of USA-Gymnastics so she has no damn right to miss the beauty of the sport she helped kill. When you promote the shit you don’t get to miss the flowers.

Go away Jackie Fie. You are just as bad as Nellie Kim

Dancing with the has been

October 27, 2010

Dominqiue Moceanu won a Cleveland version of Dancing with the Has beens I mean stars with 3 perfect tens. Marta will surely let her compete at Nationals now:)
