Pac rim team to be named tomorrow morning (Monday)

It kind of makes me laugh how gym people do their business. I am as guilty of this as others but GGMB reported that Becca hit bars but what Abomb left out was that Becca fell three times on floor and only did a crappy yurchenko for vault.That info was from IG via Aunt Joyce.

Aunt Joyce is pro Nastia. She could care less about Bross so she gave all her info.Plus horrible Rebecca means more hope for AJ’s pet, Nastia.

GGMB loves Bross so their info was only positive for the one event she hit. GGMB loves Nastia too but for some reason they LOVE Rebecca. Her gym is uglier then Aly’s but no bad nick name for her. They sent her flowers when she got hurt last year. Looks like a bond formed. (rolling eyes)

    Wonder if Nastia made hers or if she is resting the sore shoulder and won’t be showing anything at all this camp

    • gymtruthteller Says:

      If Nastia had hit Abomb would be all over that. They are pro Nastia since she gasps, knows who they are 🙂

      • JAS Says:

        Lol yeah no one seems to have heard anything about “her highness” at camp unless she has ordered everyone to keep her “progress” a secret or if she showed up long enough to say her shoulder was hurting and then left for
        “rest” and doctor lol

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        The only way I will accept her being on this team if she falls 3 times during team finals and loses the team a medal at all. She is getting way too many free passes. Not showing up to camp now? only Nastia.

      • JAS Says:

        Yeah perhaps the rest of the 08 girls are banning together in an attempt to over throw “her highness” and get all the newbies on their side and away from the Nastia oppression/ gymnastics reign of terror

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        lol I was actually thinking they would band together to overtake the newbies but anyone after Nastia’s head gets my

      • JAS Says:

        Yeah perhaps they are using the newbies as pawns to help over throw Nastia then battle it out between them and the newbies lol

      • exgymgurl Says:

        Chellsie is not at camp…

      • JAS Says:

        I think she had a minor surgery on her shoulder again not too long ago so she might not be ready for camp yet

  2. suz Says:

    Who does he get his info from? A blind and deaf ostrich that lives on the Ranch? Would explain all the inaccuracies over the years.

  3. suz Says:

    I wonder if Nastia is even at camp honestly.

  4. suz Says:

    Well I haven’t seen a thousand #hotpinknation tweets all over my twitter feed so there is a chance she isn’t. In addition, Shawn Asac and Bridget have been tweeting back and forth and God knows Queen Nastia wouldn’t let anyone have a tweetsesh at camp without her being involved. Especially not with Shawn.

    • gymtruthteller Says:

      Just another free pass for Nastia. She gets to do what she likes. Everyone else has to follow dictator Marta.

      Looks like the 08 girls are sticking together.

      • JAS Says:

        Yeah Marta probably figures she has to let Nastia do what ever so she can keep her job a little longer and not be ousted (sp?) into retiring so Nastia can go ahead and take over lol

  5. suz Says:

    Eh, I think it’s more likely that Nastia’s comeback isn’t really real and USAG is covering it up. She is obviously getting back in shape and getting ready for the tour at least, but that doesn’t mean she is really getting into Olympic shape. Then again it could be real and Martha could not care what shape Nastia is in, but I doubt it. Martha care’s more about her own ego,pride and glory than anyone else’s so she isn’t going to take Nastia unless she already has gold locked up OR Nastia can actually contribute a routine. Remember, the Karolyis are about themselves more than anyone else. They’ll burn Nastia in a hot second of they could get something out of it, sociopathic they are. If Nastia really isn’t at this camp, I might actually start believe this comeback isn’t for realz.

    • gymtruthteller Says:

      Marta also hates Shannon Miller. She gave Alicia that tenth medal just because she is bitter about Shannon beating Kim Zmeskal and being the best gymnast the US has ever had. I would not put it past her to add Nastia just to screw over Shannon Miller.

      Her ego would be fed if a gymnast under her reign had the most medals.

      • suz Says:

        Very true, there is definitely that to consider. It depends on whether or not she thinks she has gold locked up with the other four girls. If Nastia is taken, I’ll actually be rooting against USA in 2012 and hope some weird injury/headcasey-ness happens on vault or floor so they get burned by taking Nastia just for s&g.

      • JAS Says:

        I have a feeling if she takes Nastia that’s exactly what will happen

  6. suz Says:

    What goes around comes around.

  7. exgymgurl Says:

    someones reading your blog….

  8. TCO Says:

    more info please.

    • JAS Says:

      I know Jordyn is supposed to be at camp by tomorrow and I hope they announce the team
      then too

  9. Alex Says:

    OK, so I like this blog…I find it very informative, and I usually like the snark. However, I have to say that all this “I hope the USA loses if they take Nastia” talk is disheartening. Really? If the USA takes Nastia, you hope we lose? You don’t want that gold for our country, regardless of who is on the team? You don’t want it for the other 4 girls on the team, either? I’m all for saying I hope NASTIA falls in bars finals, or whatever, but rooting against our country because ONE of the athletes isn’t your pick kind of sucks.

    • gymtruthteller Says:

      That is a fair feeling however that is how I feel. Nastia getting a free pass means someone deserving will get kept at home and I have a huge problem with that.

      When your Country wins doing something shady you should question it. That is what free speech is all about.

      • JAS Says:

        Yeah it’s amazing how people can not see how shady it is and how political it is but people these days just either don’t see it or pretend they don’t see it. If I were a gymnast and knew I deserved to be on the team I would be furious if I got left home for someone who can’t pull their weight

  10. Alex Says:

    also, yay for Becca! Love her and would be thrilled if she was healthy and named to the team.

  11. suz Says:

    Well I don’t really like any of the other girls on the team this quad either, to be honest. Unless its Ross, Douglas, Finnegan, and another 08 girl besides Nastia, I don’t really care for them that much. Oh and Nastia wasn’t at camp again because of the shoulder.

  12. Naomi Says:

    I was around during a recent Nastia interview where she said – and this is a direct quote – “I don’t go to the camps to impress. I am doing partial routines and will not compete at 100% unless I’m expected to make it count…I don’t like to compete unless I’m at my very best, which is why I only competed beam at Nationals in 2009, and even then I felt guilty competing a watered-down routine…I definitely don’t feel that I will be at my best anytime soon. I don’t know what will be my first competition back.”

    Basically – “I’ve got nothing.”

    She also talked about Marta like she was a God, saying how encouraging she is, and how she wouldn’t DREAM of coaching any of the girls at camp and always respects the wishes of their individual coaches. A lot of ass kissing.

    Right after this Marta said something about how the girls have to compete at the Secret Classic, Nationals and Trials – all three – if they want to be considered for the team. She said if it’s for the Classic comp, they can compete only one or two routines if they’re not up to doing it full out, but they better have it together by Nationals. Hint hint – Nastia better get her shit together by the Classic.

    So even if Nastia is at this current camp, I don’t think she is putting in the work to have anything ready for the Pacific Rim thing or even Jesolo Cup. And I mean, they’re taking literally EVERYONE to Jesolo.

    Also, the people Marta was most excited about were Gabby, Kyla and Sarah. She did say she could see a spot for Nastia if she could get her bars up there, but didn’t seem to be as IN LOVE with her as she did with those other three. I think she wants an AA team and if she can get a halfway decent bars set from an AAer, she’d take it over a specialist with slightly higher difficulty.

    • gymtruthteller Says:

      I don’t believe a word out of either of their mouths. Marta is a liar and Nastia has two personalities.

  13. exgymgurl Says:

    Means the team was named tonight, and they will “announce” the team tomorrow, in case anyone doesnt want to go like Wofford when she was named somewhere and then her name was removed…LOL

    • JAS Says:

      I saw on twitter that Anna Li verified on all four events wonder how good or consistent she is on those?

  14. exgymgurl Says:

    Nastia’s latest tweet
    “Nastia Liukin ‏ @NastiaLiukin
    Lots of people want to ride with you in the limo but what you want is someone who will take the bus with you when the limo breaks down~Oprah”

    Has her bus broken down? Or just the limo? I’m confused… and what about the DART train in Dallas couldn’t she ride that too?

  15. suz Says:

    Yea, Nastia had some stellar 100% impressive routines last quad…. Please, that is pure B.S created, most likely, by her agent, to make her seem like some epic athlete that never makes mistakes. If Nastia was really like that, she wouldn’t have competed after 2005 until the 2008 AA finals. The only meet she was ever impressive in.

    • JAS Says:

      Yeah I think it’s basically just code for she doesn’t have time to train because she is too busy getting face time on tv and doesn’t want to quit yet because she wants to drag her comeback out a little longer for the attention and endorsement money

      • Exgymgurl Says:

        Such dom moceanuesque wisdom!

      • JAS Says:

        I personally am still waiting on her to announce her gymnastics retirement so that she can persue acting and singing or maybe her on gymnastics spectacular show in Vegas lol

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        From your fingers to God’s ears. I just want her gone

      • JAS Says:

        Lol I’m just hoping if/when she retires she decides to do the acting/singing/Vegas show instead of taking over Marta’s job lol but then again this Nastia we are talking about she would most likely do acting/singing/Vegas show/Marta’s job lol I personally think she should just go be in the circus lol

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        The circus is perfect for Nastia.

        She is going to end up a coach at her dad’s gym. Mark my words. Her high school is known for being a joke. If she goes to College it will be Clown College.

      • JAS Says:

        That would be perfect concidering I don’t like clowns anyways so clown college would be perfect for her lol and yeah she will probably end up coaching with her Dad unless she forces him to retire so she can have his job too lol

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        That is

        I want her off my TV screen. She can turn into Carly Patterson and disappear.

      • JAS Says:

        Perhaps she should go coach in Russia then she will be off the tv and out of the country lol

  16. Biyatch Says:

    Team named. Wieber, Douglas and Ross for the seniors. Wonder what this means for Raisman. At American Cup while Raisman’s flaws (bars) were still evident I think you could argue overall she was still more solid in hitting then Douglas and Wieber. Could probably go either way interpreting that she’s proven herself enough already or that she’s essentially been replaced and out of the mix in Martha’s mind.

    Ross is getting her shot, my guess is this is proving time for her. If she wants to at least privately still have a shot at the team she better hit.

    Also see if Douglas can hold it together after the American Cup performance, this time with the pressure on. A lot of that NBC love might go away fast if headcase moments return.

  17. Anonymous Says:

    Aly has proved herself already. Jordyn has also but they are sending her probably because Kelloggs sponsors her. Ross and Douglas are there to prove themselves. I am not surprised by this team at all.

  18. annonymous Says:

    The team is up on USAG now. They are taking Wieber, Gaggy, and Ross.

    Why the hell are they taking Wieber? Someone’s trying to wear her out before London…

    • annonymous Says:

      Whoops, I forgot that Wieber is sponsored by Kellogg’s. Dumb. Someone else should have been able to have her spot…

    • JAS Says:

      Are they going to annouce the teams for Jeselo today?

      • annonymous Says:

        Not sure, but seeing as how long it took to learn about Pac Rims, probably not? Not sure why every other country can name their teams quickly and the US has to make it some big, suspenseful event!

      • Biyatch Says:

        Teams announced. Huge team heading over. Juniors: Katelyn Ohashi, Lexie Priessman, Madison Desch, Amelia Hundley and Bailey Key. Seniors: Sarah Finnegan, McKayla Maroney, Kyla Ross, Rebecca Bross, Brianna Brown, Brenna Dowell, Elizabeth Price, MyKayla Skinner and Aly Raisman.

      • JAS Says:

        No Shawn? Or Sloan? They must not have had a good camp?

  19. JAS Says:

    No offense to Jordyn or Gabby but I would kind of like to see Kyla win just because there has been so much Jordyn/Gabby hype lately although with the way the politics are I have a feeling Jordyn might win reguardless since she is sponsored by Kellogg lol

    • annonymous Says:

      Honestly, I hope that happens, too. Stop the Gabby hype, give Wieber a break, and get Ross further on the radar. Really a win win for everyone, haha.

      • JAS Says:

        I was hoping she would send Finnegan instead of Gabby to let her get some experience but I think Marta probably wanted to push the Jordyn/Gabby competition between those two lol

  20. annonymous Says:

    I think Marta wants a rivalry like there was in 2008 for the attention and the push it gives the athletes. Why it has to be Jordyn and Gabby, I’ll never really understand. To me their gymnastics are on totally separate levels.

    • JAS Says:

      I like Gabby ok enough and all but I think she has one good meet where she did pretty good but was way over scored but it will be interesting to see how she does in a real competition with Jordyn but I still want Kyla to win just to hopefully put a stop too this Jordyn/Gabby rivalry lol

      • Exgymgurl Says:

        So marta gives ross a fair shot lets hope she goes 8/8, reading how gabby ended up at chows is still confusing to me she seems to have really blossomed with him. Ali Raismans tweets about having overpacked for Houston kind of signaled to me she wasnt on Pac Rim team. I bet the athletes stay and train next week that were chosen.

      • annonymous Says:

        Truth! I saw a quote today that made me think of Gabby: “One good meet does not an Olympian make”.

        So true…Which could really be the truth for all of them, at this point, except for a few since it is so close. I think it is fair to assume that the girls picked for these teams are at the forefront of Marta’s possible London team and the rest might as well forget it? And the fact that Nastia was not on either team nor does it sound like she was even at camp makes me think that either A. it’s over or B. whatever bar routine she came up with this time is being totally hidden until June.

      • JAS Says:

        I saw on twitter that they are one person short of two teams at Jeselo and maybe Marta is waiting to announce a surprise 10th person which knowing Marta is possible! Thoughts on this?

  21. Exgymgurl Says:

    So ross bross and maroney to jesolo along with a few first year seniors, and usa gymnastics lists the caquatti at texas dreams so its official just not widely publicized
