Poster for USA-Gymnastics tour. Nastia love fest

Honestly why even pretend we are having a trials if they are going to name her to the team regardless of what she does?

Okay so I am basing this on a tour poster but she is bigger than the girls actually doing gymnastics these days.

USA-Gymnastics wants her on this team because for some reason they think just looking at her pointy nose is a positive, GAG ME.

Looks like the decision is made and SPARE ME she is the Olympic champs BS. That was 4 years ago.

The reigning World AA champion deserves first billing. PERIOD.

Like you have ever seen before. LMAO. Ya right.

    Camp photos here next to

    wieber, sloan maroney raisman… granted there is perspective but she still looks like a craptacular fatass for a gymnast…even in the one taken from the other side of the gymnasts no one but their parents care about she looks like a fat ass

    “So the first 1:09 seconds is her innovative “apres beam” pre-mount technique right Elfie”

    “Yes Tim, it’s her way of revolutionizing competitive gymnastics with a headband and taking glitter to the next level Tim”

    “Then shes on the beam for less than a minute and jumps off at 2:02 to give the folks at home something to practice”

    “Thats right tim, with one acro skill many more girls will be able to honestly say they do gymnastics like Nastia”

    “And it was the same chicken flip one legged she did on the floor?”

    “Yes Nastia said her goal in this routine was to make it look effortless like anyone that messes around on their backyard trampline could learn the routine in less than a week, she wants gymnastics to be accessible to all people”

    “So Elfie after her 30 second break and a handspring on the mat, basic level 5 stuff shes back on the beam for more, I don’t know where she gets her stamina for essentially treating us to two routines, is she singing also like Britney Spears does when she dances?”

    “No Tim singing is not part of her plan, you’re confusing her with Carly Patterson”

    “And at 2:53 shes paying homage to Britney by tugging her gold hot pants down out of her backside”

    ” You could say that Tim, although in competition that would be a deduction and I don’t think it was part of an intended homage to the 6 year olds on level 5 tiny team that have Leo’s that ride up their behinds”

    ” So Elfie, that move off the end of the beam, isnt there someone in NCAA gymnastics doing that this year?”

    ” Yes I believe we have seen a few girls in the NCAA incorporate that, perhaps Nastia is paying tribute to collegiate gymnasts like her BFF Samantha Pezeck she sure is a darling girl Tim”

    “Then when she repeats the chicken flip and bobbles and does a balance check, is that a homage to the girls in the Nastia Liukin cup doing more difficult gymnastics than that? Or is it just the lighting?”

    “Tim I think she wanted everyone to know that she is working dilligently to master mediocre NCAA gymnastics hoping to get a waiver back to amateur and compete for Michigan State, Shayla Worley’s Leprosy ridden beam routine beats that one any day”

    “Thanks Elfie, well there you have it folks, I think the only thing I didnt see in there was an homage to Dominique Moceanu and her husband’s poker face you tube video, Bela your thoughts”

    “Nastia will win gold in London she is the greatest hope of American gymnastics”

    “There you have it folks, back to the olympic speedwalking trials for Elfie Schlagel I’m TIm Dagget saying so long”

    That video was freakin hilariously awful. I especially love how she had to do all her passes on the floor. What kinda level 2 beam routine was that? Marta where are you! I need you to dig your nails in Nastia’s neck and slam her face into a pay phone!

    • exgymgurl Says:

      I heard that Nastia’s goals on her vision board involved making gymnastics accessible to all people. This way when little girls say look I’m as good as Nastia it’s the truth. And when she was completing her second chicken flip complete with bobbles, and that wierdness off the end of the beam, it’s like straight out of the NCAA. She’s just trying to fit in with her age group peers. She also wanted to make sure she doesn’t outshine anyone in the 2012 Nastia Liukin cup. Also when she pulls her gold hot pants out of her behind before her second strut shes saying hey six year old tiny team memebers I know it’s a deduction but don’t forget your personal comfort when your leo creeps up your behind.

      My favorite part is her new “Apres Beam” look which is what you wear when you might get on the beam as opposed to if you are a serious competitor. I think there is room in this look for a fashion line… you go Nastia!!!

  4. allie Says:

    I dunno….I think the Oly champ gets to be featured front and center for the full 4 years post-Olympics and especially leading up to the next Olympics. Especially if the athlete has star power. (And I know you’re all gagging on your cereal, but let’s face it…non-gym fan people know who Nastia is. They probably don’t know Jordyn.) And agreed about the skating/gym spectacular. It’s awful. Everything about it is just terrible.

  5. annonymous Says:

    Those gym spectatculars are HIDEOUS. I couldn’t watch all of Nastia’s routine in the above video.

    I feel as though the team will be Jordyn, Maroney, Raisman for sure…with 2 wild cards. Not sure if Nastia will be one of them or not. It really could be any of the ’08 girls that ‘cameback’.

    Anyone know why Shawn was not at camp? She tweeted that she was doing something else that will ‘really benefit her comeback/gymnastics’…but I never figured out what it was.

    At first I was all aboard the comeback train, but now I’m not so sure.

  6. gymtruthteller Says:

    Allie. People don’t know who she is. The every 4 year people do not know her by name.

    I have a few every 4 year gym fans in my life and they don’t remember her. They rememebr Shawn. My boyfriend calls her the Russian bitch that got over scored.but I think that might be a little influenced by

    I have no problem with her face being up there byt 3 times more than everyone else? no.

  7. Sandy Says:

    THANK you!!! I saw the same poster a few days ago and was thinking “Gymtruthteller PLEASE blog about this fiasco…” Why her face was made prominent and not even Shawn’s (who’s making a comeback of her own – and has been for a lot longer than Nastia – and was ALSO an Olympic gold medal winner)…at least have them all be the same size. Ridiculous.

    But it will make it so much sweeter if Nastia is left off of the team after all of this hype and promotion. She herself probably hopes to break both of her arms as an excuse not to have to go through with all of this and have all the pressure on her back. I think you’d be an idiot to be the most recent all-around champion and then push for a last-minute comeback when the most you can even hope for is a medal in ONE apparatus. She should have just tried to be a correspondent for NBC and left it at that…isn’t it best to be remembered as the previous Olympic champion and leave it at that? I mean, she should have borrowed from the notes of Tara Lipinski and Sarah Hughes (OK, figure skating references…but those were the best I could think of – even Carly Patterson called it quits right after!)

  8. Sandy Says:

    OK and I just saw that video – that’s an embarrassment, for lack of a better term! I felt embarrased FOR her, it was that bad. Flaring arms and a few half-ass flips here and there…wow. And she couldn’t even do her “signature” move without wobbling and nearly falling off – she put both feet down between it too. Wow, wow.

    If she makes the team, I hope Alicia makes it too. Then I hope Alicia falls on beam, Nastia does not make bar event finals, and team USA comes home with one all-around medal from Wieber. Then I hope Marta is not even given a choice for retirement, she’ll just disappear with her tail between her legs.

  9. exgymgurl Says:

    Come on between the “apres beam” fashion and the pulling the gold hot pants out of her behind I thought it was a statement every six year old tiny team member could aspire too… two chicken flips and a walkover handspring on the floor…. at least Shawn was actually competing real skills at Pan Ams

  10. TCO Says:

    I’m sure you can send lots of snark against Paul Hamm…

    but the dude effing brings it. Through major reconstructive surgery and HIS VIDEOS are quitely kick ass form and difficulty.

    Lot better than Nastia.

  11. exgymgurl Says:

    For kicks and giggles, Courtney Kupets bringing more difficulty and more interest to a craptacular….

  12. exgymgurl Says:

    Which got me thinking and here’s the 2004 quads answer at the same craptacular with Courntneys Kupets and McCool. Notice Kupets is in hot pants bare legged… and throws two solid tumbling passes… two years out of NCAA welcome to 2011 2012…. maybe Kupets should come back over Nastia….she looks like shes in better shape

  13. exgymgurl Says:

    Nastia’s floor same event… you decide

    • honeychile Says:

      Haa! Yes, that’s right Nasty. Wear neon pink leg warmers and sparkly booty shorts to distract us from the fact that the routine had no skills.. Hell, the ice skaters did more tumbling than she did.

      And to think, there’s a such thing a Nastia Cup. I’m sorry but I have to end this comment like I started it; with a resounding HAA!!

      • exgymgurl Says:

        Didnt notice the leg warmers so distracted by the lack of running, dancing and the sad step step POSE… step step POSE… kick my leg up Shawn’s routines on DWTS were more challenging… and the gymnasts in the Nastia Cup do more challenging gymnastics. I watched one of the videos of her training at WOGA, its very carefully cut, but she does no repetitive skills there is no routine, she can barely land a side somei on the floor….again… this is an “apres floor” fashion look

      • honeychile Says:

        LMAO @ the DWTS comment, but sadly, you’re right!

  14. Megan MacStabby Jourdan Says:

    Nastia looks like she’s ready to go on the ho-stroll with those dreadful outfits. Let’s make sure all the little girls in our lives look up to her.

  15. gymtruthteller Says:

    Has anyone seen the new pics
    filmed at an angle to make herself look skinny? She is holding her hands on her hips to hide the bulge.

    The camera is above her looking down.

    She looks great for a human but she is still not in shape to swing a 7 start value bar routine and finish it on her feet. When she was a skinny stick she couldn’t finish the dismount.

    • Sandy Says:

      I haven’t seen the pics, can you post them? I think everyone was pretty spot on about the above “performance”…if you can even call it that. I really wish Courtney Koupets hadn’t been injured in the ’04 games…she would have given Patterson a run for her money I think. SHE should come back – she was a good bar worker, no?

    • Megan MacStabby Jourdan Says:

      I saw that one! All I could think of were the “forced perspective” shots they used for the Lord of the Rings movies. Definitely some tricky camera work.

  16. gymtruthteller Says:

    Oh and ggmb rumor has it Nastia was told to do bars and beam only and stop floor but she isn’t listening.

    Here’s two breaking two legs on a rudi. Oh how 1995

    • katieelizabeth87 Says:

      Next thing you know, she’ll be training vault trying for a repeat performance! I hope she goes for it and humiliates herself!

      • exgymgurl Says:

        If its on her “vision board” I’m sure she is, or ripping an achilles or kicking herself in the head with that flailling leg….I think she and Alicia both “injure out” at classics… She does look like she’s on the hoetrail, but has looked that way since she left gymnastics. Do you think Jordyn Weiber watches this on you tube at home and Laughs her Butt off knowing that she won’t be eclipsed by Nastia in 2012?

    JAN 10 – An unimaginable (Wang Yan) tragedy happens in Memphis.

    JAN 19 – Lindsey Brown, WMC-TV News Anchor: “My heart is with 13 year old Avery Downing. She’s a local gymnast who fell last week from the bars at her gym (the same routine she won 1st place with two weeks ago). The fall injured her spinal cord, and now she’s paralyzed from the waist down. Her gym has created funds for her at all Regions Bank branches and Sun Trust bank.

    ** Another sad part of this story: her parents’ house was burglarized today while they were at the hospital with her.”

    JAN 21 – Nastia Liukin: “Stay strong and keep believing! Xoxo” [another tweet to Avery]

    JAN 21 – Avery Downing: “u tweeting me made my day 🙂 I love you!!!”


    I tried not to cry but couldn’t. The exchange, without cameras and fanfare, was heartfelt considering all that has happened to this poor girl.

  18. gymtruthteller Says:

    With all due respect to the poor little girl doughnut if Nastia really cared about the little girl on any level twitter would have been the last place she sent the kid a message. She chose twitter because she knew it would get her attention and it worked because you even noticed it.

    Now it’s all, Nastia is so sweet, blah, blah, blah.

    Sorry but I have seen this girl at work and she is all about show. I really think she has some kind of nervousness to have all the attention on her. I have said it before. Therapy

    • doughnut sundae Says:

      I guess deep down I want to believe that Nastia can be empathetic, and was encouraging Avery for all of the right reasons.

  19. Dark Vader Says:

    I strongly believe had she hit even a single bar routine she would have been put on the team over Ross which would have been absolutely ridiculous. I didn’t exhale until she messed up her 4th straight bar routine (at Nationals/Trials) and then I finally knew she was out even if she hit beam again.
