Johnson added to National team.

Shawn Johnson was added to the National team . So was Ivana Hong. Nastia was not.

Marta loves Nastia. She wants nothing more then to have her take over the overall medal count from that bitch Shannon Miller for stealing Kim Zmeskal spotlight 18 years ago. If Nastia was even close to being ready on bars she would have her funding back.

Marta is still bitter after all these years so if she chose not to give Nastia her funding there is a reason behind it.

    […] has been listed as a member of the USA National Team – great news. Gymnastics Coaching and Gym Truth Teller also had some opinions on […]

    Hahaha are you saying gymnasts hold grudges ? And Marta is biased?? Next you’ll be telling me she tells the judges and the national committee who to put on the olympic teams I’m stunned LOL I think Zmeskals Revenge is a disease that will come to USA gymnastics upon Marta’s retirement…

  3. gymtruthteller Says:

    Zmeskal doesn’t need revenge. She got her gift AA title. She should be happy.

    The couch gymnast over hearing that snarky comment by Marta about the difficulty in Lauren Micthell’s beam routine is just the tip of the iceberg. (in case you don’t remember she made some kind of obnoxious comment about all the difficulty in Laurens beam routine being a surprise because Peggy was the one that helped design the routine. Apparently she forgot the shit gymnastics Moceanu and Strug had in their routines LMAO))

    All I can hope for is that Marta stays bitter, puts Nastia on the team in 2012 for just bars and she falls 4 times in team finals costing the US any medal at all. That would be karma.

    Then Nastia’s “mental toughness” in the individual competition to get her own medal and triumph would be the story… no matter what Shawn or anyone else does. Who can forget Keri Strugg I try but its burned in my brain….

    There will be no individual medal because Nastia will not be doing AA. She will do beam and bars and fall off 6 times in prelims. Each event:0)

    Kerri and her bent leg layouts are burned in my head too.

    Marta is nothing if not a pragmatist. She will take whomever she thinks will get the best scores.

    Shawn has been training pretty seriously for 6-8 months (I forget when she announced her comeback but it was a while ago) She’s posted videos demonstrating the level of skills she’s throwing and made it public that her intentions are to compete in 2011 so it was more prudent to get her on the national team (and back in drug testing pool) vs nastia who has been as transparant about her comeback plans or how serious she is about training. She will probably not return to competing until 2012 anyway, so plenty of time for her to get back onto the national team.
