Wow I cannot stand John MacReady. Ha he asks them all to say whatttsssup because he’s a total loser, and they all give it a go except Kyla who says ‘What’s up’ and laughs. She is so endearing. Jon has a good story of how he started in gymnastics..broke away from his mam in a Target and climbed 25 feet up a pole when he was 4. MacReady makes a mess of not knowing Anna Li’s parents were in the 84 Olympics. Anna and Kyla are giggling to each other while they are not being asked a question. Blah blah juggling school. Steven could rival Aly for boring monotone voice when they find the question boring.
Steven says he’s the worst dancer. I think all of the guys were pretty crap though. Ha question texted in ‘What is up with Jon Horton’s hair?’ and he says ‘Is it not awesome?’. Horton and Legendre have a laugh about the time Legendre landed a handspring double front on his face. ‘No, it was your face man!’. Horton seems very likeable. Kyla says Trials were more nervewracking than the Olympics. ‘Do you watch make it or break it?’ Anna was a stunt on it once..for who I wonder..Steven and Jon say no, Kyla says no not really. Apparently Chris Brooks is obsessed with it. Boring advice part next. Kyla’s least favourite event is floor. Anna has issues with double double off bars timing..sometimes does triple doubles. Kyla’s scariest is shposh 1/2.
I know. She looks nothing like her young days. You look at Nadia and shes aged well, but Bokindskaya looks like she went crazy with the plastic surgery. I didn’t realize she lives in the US or perhaps shes visiting.
I think Anna Li is done. I keep seeing in different blogs that she wants to come back for worlds next year. Good luck my dear because Marta has a smorgasbord of Seniors to choose from next year and the years to come.
She’s well in shape and is adding stuff to her bars routine all the time. I don’t think she’s done, but I would agree Marta thinks she’s done. So maybe not worlds, but I’d like to see that bars routine get an outing at Jesolo or Pac Rims or something. The new code allows for an extra swings for the old impossible releases..Counter kim, mo salto etc. Anna is well capable of one of those if she’s trying for a Kovacs. Not a fan of the Olympian tag, but I am a fan of her innovative bars and drive to keep going.
major snore… thats what you get for your VIP seat price chalk talk, and now that its all over the internet I hope its worth it to everyone….WOW… I would be so disappointed to spend my $$ on that, Legendre is so stiff, and gets irritated with horton for talking about his freshman year at Oklahoma…anna li makes me want to fall asleep and Kyla is right there behind her, sometimes not even answering the question that is asked and just talking about something else randomly. I think maybe if they got that male gymnast they kept talking about that cut hortons hair, that watches MIoBI maybe he would be more entertaining.
My guess is one of the fierce 5 always comes out with someone else… I wonder which chalk talk this was. Anyone have an idea what city it was? At least Kyla is saying Ummm less
