USA-Gymnastics to keep Alicia on team to win 10th world medal. Why?

Marta will do anything to screw Shannon Miller and USA-gymnastics is following suit.

They will be keeping Alicia’s name on the roster so she can win her 10th world medal without earning it. Seems to me a lot of people feel the same way I do about this, It sucks.

There are all kinds of comments all over USA-gymnastics facebook page calling them out for everything from Alicia getting a tenth medal she didn’t earn to Shawn not being brought to Japan to my personal favorite, USA-gymnastics screwing over Shannon Miller.

Gotta love this. Mad props to USA-Gymnastics for advertising how to see all the comments but will they listen? nope.

You people do not know how to treat your Champions. Keeping Alicia’s name on the roster to get her a medal she had nothing to do with just to dis-respect Shannon Miller because she wasn’t coached by Marta is ridiculous. The nerve Shannon had to beat a Karoyli gymnast.

It’s bad enough your never give Shannon Miller the respect she deserves. Keeping Alicia on this team just to erase her name from the record books is sad and pathetic.

How many more gymnasts does USAG plan to sacrifice at these selection camps?

Congratulations to our world team that was able to survive USAG’s selection process. You girls are truly tough!

Sorry, but as heartbreaking as it is for Sac, why keep her on the roster to get a medal for which she did nothing? Record or no (and what a stupid way to get a record), if she can’t compete she shouldn’t be on the roster.

    Yeah, but here’s the good thing: People who understand U.S. gymnastics will ALWAYS call Shannon #1, regardless of what the Karolyis do with A-Suk. Alicia could win 500 medals, and she wouldn’t be a tenth of the gymnast Shannon was.

    It takes more than knockers to make a champion and a hero.

  4. Exgymgurl Says:

    And who says team USA will medal? I think they finish 4th to china russia and romania…. Its not over in fact so far Pitic leads…. Be happy even if chiarelli isnt competing…. I see a major meltdown with team USA off the podium….except for jordan weiber…. Chellsie shawn and bridget true champions are better off NOT on this team

  5. Exgymgurl Says:

    GO PITIC!!!!!! Can I say it again just for fun???? Sarah! Keep the shrine alive, keep praying And vision boarding it!!!

  6. sarals24 Says:

    Maybe this little merry band of misfits representing the US will finish in fourth and ASac will be denied a 10th medal…:)

  7. sarals24 Says:

    PITIC FOR 2012 AA GOLD!!!

  8. Exgymgurl Says:

    Im not going to publicly state what i think will happen for reasons…..but lets say mattie larson will look like nothing when this hits the fan

      Oh come on now gymgurl, Spill it:)

      • exgymgurll Says:

        I think someone from the US will have a major accident on vault, I think there are two falls on bars, one on beam, I think prelims is a mess and we go into 3-3 with 5 athletes and finish 6th. I also think Jordyn Wieber and Geddert come out like rockstars, reading his blog, the Wiebers are the best gymnastics parents ever and picked a coach that actually has a brain…. and seems to care. Im not going to say which athletes fall, but I have some predictions….

    Great Britain doesn’t look too bad either, neither does Australia. Of course, look what happened in 2003..

    Alicia should retire now and not try for 2012. Her body is obviously not up to it, and her last medal that she earned was gold on vault (not countnig this unearned team medal she could get, obviously) I don’t love her as a gymnast or how she seems in the media, but that’s a pretty good career.

    check out this interesting blog post from John Geddert.

    Pitic is on top for the AA!!! If she got an AA medal I would be ecstatic…

  12. gymtruthteller Says:

    Thanks for all the comments. I’ll comment later. I have company.

  13. gymtruthteller Says:

    When China hit floor I knew they would be doomed for bars.

  14. Viola Roadkill Says:

    According to GymnasticsCoaching, Sacramone and Li get medals and count as world champions…this is STUPID.

  15. Viola Roadkill Says:

    Anyhow, Shannon has seven Olympic medals…Sacramone has one.

    • gymtruthteller Says:

      It just makes no sense why two gymnasts that never competed got medals. One wasn’t even in the Country.

  16. TCO Says:

    USA won.
