Someone at IG captured this before USA-Gymnastics deleted it. This is so freaking funny.lol
If you need any proof USA-Gymnastics is up Nastia’s ass here you go.
I don’t a single thing this person said should have been deleted. What isn’t true?
If someone wrote this about Shawn I bet it would still be up.
Thanks for the laugh IG. You rock.
For the sake of the sport, I honestly hope this whole Pro-Nastia mentality is a phase, and nothing else. The deletion of my comment is one thing, personally, it’s no skin off my back, I don’t really care, I have other forums at which to express my, ‘biased’, opinion. What really bothers me is that I can’t point out certain truths because they’re ‘anti’-Nastia.
I’m sorry, but in what …world must I worship the ground she walks on? She’s the one who constantly yearns for attention. Honestly, what kind of person, much less athlete and Olympic Champion, announces their ‘come-back’ during the World Championship a few hours after a team member injures their Achilles? Not to mention that she took credit for giving the team their ‘pep-talk’ right before they competed, when it’s common knowledge their team captain did so.
Also, I’m not going to pretend as if I believe Marta knows what’s best for the team, evident in the US not having won since 1996. She isn’t doing anyone any favors by not sending Sabrina Vega, Shawn Johnson, Anna Li, etc and giving them an international stage in the Olympic year to showcase upgrades, get their feet wet, and what not. It’s ludicrous, but hey… I’m not the one who chooses the teams… Oh, wait… Nastia is on that committee as well, isn’t she? It’s ridiculous.
I digress, why not send Nastia? Does she really expect to wow at Nationals and automatically make the team? Is she really that delusional? I’m not kidding, when I say that I will be insanely upset if she even makes alternate to the Olympics. There are many, MANY, girls who deserve to be on that team; she does not. It being a 5 member team isn’t doing anyone any favors. The only way she will make the team is if someone who actually deserves to make that team is cut in order to make room for her subpar bars. She’s no where near Olympic shape, and we all know this, hell, neither is He Kexin.
Conclusively, the deletion of my comment isn’t the issue here, the issue is the lack of respect for others opinions if they aren’t pro-Nastia or Marta, and that isn’t something I support, especially, from an organization whose purpose is to represent United States Gymnastics, not the biased views of those who work there, or to glorify athletes who are has-beens.
