Gabby Douglas: You would think winning the AA at the Olympics would automatically keep your name off this list but not when your bad attitude and obnoxious comments before and after your win make you sound like an insensitive brat.
The “We all have to deal with disappointment” comment after Jordyn Wieber did not make the AA at the Olympics has to be the most second most obnoxious thing I have ever heard come out of a gymnasts mouth.
John Geddert: You were told that Jordyn Wieber would not get credit for her combinations on beam and yet you rolled your eyes and deduced the complaints to jealousy.
A good coach would have fixed the problem and probably prevented the injury to your gymnast that took away her chance at fulfilling her life long dream of being the Olympic AA champion but instead you let your ego get in the way of common sense.
Nastia Liukin: Where do I even start? She half ass’d a comeback a few months before the Olympic Trials. She then went to Nationals and put together two horrible routines and than admitted on National television that she only put an uneven bar routine together the week before competition. She than bragged about how she had an upgraded routine for the Olympic Trials that would take place two weeks later.
I wish I could find the video of her interview after Nationals. The eye rolling and arrogant attitude is something only a TV movie could dream up but we saw it live at a Gymnastics competition.
Someone please re-write this part about Nastia so I can help the people in the future reading this blog understand just how obnoxious this comeback really was. I did not do it justice above.
Nastia was told by Marta she would be on the team if she hit and when she failed Nastia made the media believe the comeback was for her love of the sport. She said a million times, “I didn’t give up” and made it seem like she kept competing after tanking every uneven bar routine because she wasn’t a quitter when in reality it was because she was told she was on the team if she hit.
Everyone involved in the Chellsie Memmel debacle.
Steve Penny, Marta, all of you. Anyone that was too scared to let Chellsie Memmel compete at Nationals because you knew she would show up prepared I hope Karma screws you over. You disgust me I think more than anyone else on this list including Nastia.
Gabby’s mother I actually understand you claiming bankruptcy before the Olympics to protect your daughters future earnings. It’s morally disgusting but I understand it. What I don’t understand is taking a free ride from a gym and than stabbing them in the back when you do hit it big.
If not legally you morally owe it to Excalibur Gymnastics to pay them back.
I will never understand how this women could justify flying all over the World to see her daughter compete while claiming she had no money. 2.500$ dollars in disability and child support and you can’t support your kids? They are old enough tell them to get a job. I have had one since I was 14 and that doesn’t include the babysitting I did from 11 on. Than again I guess I was raised by parents that taught me that being able to take care of myself is a priority. Even if it is pay check by pay check.
Who would you nominate for Turkey of the year?
I have to stop writing because all of this crap is pissing me off again. This is why I do not read about this family. They give America a bad name and never get called on it.
I planned on posting two articles but as soon as I saw the comments in the comments section I realized that certain people in this Country never have to take responsibility for their actions.
