Here is a very impressive Montage about China’s future gymnasts. There is a lot of talent in China’s future, Take a look
So I found this blog today and they have two very interesting blogs. One is about Carly calling out Khorkina and the other is about Khorkina pretending she does not remember the gymnast that beat her.
This is why I will always be a defender of Carly and her attitude back in 04. The Queen might have more medals but she has always been a sore loser. How else was Carly supposed to act? Just like her.:)
The Russian way is to say one thing to the US media and run home to Russia and complain about the mean old US stealing their medal.
Another thing that kills me is this idea that “the artistic gymnast” usually the Russian gymnast is robbed every time they lose yet when the Russian gymnast is the tumbler like in 1992 Russia has no complaint. I hate hypocrites.
There was another interview where Khorkina talks about how the judges got it right 4 years ago giving it to Nastia “The artistic gymnast” (because she is Russian. Don’t think for a second if the US gymnast was the artistic one Khorkina would have had a problem with it) yet they got it wrong going the other way this year
IMO the artistic gymnast should always win out if the start values are close and the routines are clean but only if the form and technique are part of the equation.
I watched this and all I could stop thing was, I hope this tumbles to the ground and they all fall off except Jordyn and Aly.lol Yes I am mean.
