    I wonder if Mustafina and Komova are both doing the AA?

  2. Daniel Bertolina Says:

    i’m preety sure mustafina’s doing the AA but komova just doing barsand beam I think

  3. gymnastblog Says:

    I want Larissa Iordache to win the AA, Great Britain to to win TF, Aliya Mustafina to win UB, Oksana Chusovitina to win VT, Larissa Iordache to get FX, and for Catalina Ponor to win BB!

  4. nero Says:

    I’m pretty sure Musty isn’t doing AA but I may be wrong

    The US girls have 3 more comps to test upgrades and prove their worth to the team, how many more comps do the Russian girls have?

    If Musty, Komova and Russian gymnast #3 are going for amanars it would be a good idea to compete them before the Olympic TF

  5. catherine Says:

    Komova didn’t do floor at podium training so unlikely for aa. Mustafina did all 4 though. No tweddle, Seitz or afansayeva, dissapointing. I predict iordache aa, Russia team, komova bars, steingruber vault, mustafina beam or livchikova if musty doesn’t do beam and iordache floor but I really want grishina to win that.

    (Q) How many competitions do the Russian girls have to prove their mettle?

    (A) Zero!

    I like the way Andrei Rodionenko thinks: the WAG team that competes at the European championships in May IS the Olympic team, though his debutantes will be formally introduced the following month after the Russian Cup.

    It is all about tactics, keeping hope alive and future Olympians out of the hospital. Though it is worrisome to read that Demy’s drunken performance at the Moscow Championships a few months ago may have sealed her fate; to hear Musty is now a basket case ransacked by puberty (she is too womanly to be of any consequence at the Olympic Games – that’s what her coach said a few months ago); and to see that Vika isn’t the only one whose right ankle is covered by a mountain of tape.

      Doesn’t bode well for Russia. I was almost pretty sure they’d be giving the US a run for their money. I still think this is the case with their bars – we’ll see. Musty was always described as a basket case.

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        Basket case in May means nothing really but remember Russia won a few years ago with 3 falls. That wont happen at the Olympicss

      • Sandy Says:

        True but if it weren’t for Mattie Larson, Russia wouldn’t have won. 🙂

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        Selective forgetting. The Dominique Dawes years. That will be the title of my next book:)

        The whining of….. Dominique would have won 2 world AA titles if she didn’t fall on her ass totally ignoring #TheFacts that Miller made mistakes too that would have easily erased the Dawes mistakes. Why I love gymnastics message boards

      • JAS4 Says:

        I think the Russians could still be a challenge for the USA especially since we have no idea who Marta will decide to put on the team and if Russia gets a few Amanars along with their high d scores on bars

      • Sandy Says:

        LOL. Awesome. I’d much rather read that book than anything by the other Dominique.

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        Dawes has a Olympic year whoring book coming out. get this, written by some religious GGMB has a thread on it. Maybe I will do a blog.
