First congrats to my girll JYY for winning the silver AA medal. What a performance for her. Well deserved. Congrats also to Aliya for nailing her events again and taking the AA with a ridiculous score over 61 but as usual I have to talk about the freaking judges over scoring a Woga student instead of what went on in the AA.
Truth is I didn’t want Bross on the podium but I knew she would be there. Falling off beam and messing her dismount stll got her a score over 14 which is just plain ridiculous with her pitaful form and crappy execution. That being said this isn’t even my biggest complaint with her scores. Lets talk about floor. She added a few tenths on her D score but did her usual void of artistry floor routine and was rewarded the highest floor score of the AA, A 15. 2 something. Sorry not possible. Her floor scores went from low 14’s to 15 plus with nothing added in but a freaking dance element for an added two or so tenths. How is that possible? The next time some Nastia fanatic whines that she beat Shawn because she was so artistic even tries to defend the Rebecca Bross overscoring I am throwing a gymnastics code at them. Hypocrites. At least Nastia hit some pretty positions between her horrible overrated form. Rebecca doesn’t even have that going for her.
I should so be done with this sport. Nastia’s entire career benefitted by being Russian living under the United states flag and now Rebecca is getting that same benefit because of Valeri. Notice the judges didn’t give her that benefit on bars. It wasn’t until floor that the judges totally just ignored her issues because they knew Aliya had it in the bag.
