    That’s right . I noticed it when I read us nationals would be in indy in 2015.

  3. Case Says:

    Hmmm I wonder who will step up? How about the Tampax “please let these girls hit puberty” US Nationals?

  4. natty Says:

    I think Discover US Championships (discover card), would be cool.

  5. JAS4 Says:

    Maybe it will be sponsored by the Karolyi gymnastics Ranch so they can officially have all control lol

  6. Surfergirl Says:

    Yipee, now we can use other credit cards besides Visa at the championships. Undoubtedly it will be the Kellogg’s US Championships since they are in bed with USA-G.

  7. sanitynmotion Says:

    Haha that’s a huge sponsor to lose. Maybe they got the note about Memmel?

  8. Short1 Says:

    On their website it just says “U.S. Gymnastics Championships.” I hope they leave that as the name…although Visa Championships wasn’t as bad as some of the others (Secret U.S. Classic, Covergirl Classic, etc.).

    Sorry to hijack, but I found this of Nastia at Gym Fan Confessions. The last sentence especially made me think of you, GTT.

    • gymtruthteller Says:

      LMAO, That is hilarious. Yep Nastia is all about giving

      It looks like I am going to have to start using my tumblr for evil like this blog because I can’t let BS like that

      • terrigymfan Says:

        I always thought doing charity work etc was “giving back,” not being a media hound,

        Also, that’s quite a bit if cleavage on Nastia’s part, don’t you think?

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        I didn’t even notice. I see her face and turn

      • Gymnerd Says:

        Disgusting on all fronts, esp. the cleavage. Eeeeeewwwwwww.

    Someone said no more adidas either. Wonder who’s getting the gymnastics contract. Most likely Nike although I could see USAG and Under Armour teaming up.

    • Guest Says:

      Nike never manufactures gymnastics leotard in my memory, despite that Shawn is signed by Nike. Shawn has just been promoting its products about fitness training.

      • sanitynmotion Says:

        Actually Nike was going to (at least I thought I had read this) start a gymnastics clothing line via Shawn. They had her at labs and such (during her comeback) and were monitoring her movements to do a clothing line dedicated to gymnastics. I don’t know if – since her retirement – that is still in the works, but Nike has been pretty successful entering into other sports apparel (swimming/water polo being one of them!)

      • Biyatch Says:

        I guessed Nike because of their on going relationship with the USOC not because they’ve made other gymnastics gear. And keep in mind that adidas leos were really just gk leos with an adidas logo. i can’t imagine that changing whoever wins the contract. The big Olympic gear companies besides Nike & Adidas were Speedo & TYR (n/a for gymnastics) and Under Armour. Reebok isn’t a thing anymore. Maybe gk will just manufacture under their own brand. Should be interesting to see.

    I dont think Nike will come on board they dont really sponsor teams. It will be something dumb like P&G or oil of olay or some such nonsense like dawn dishsoap

    • Exgymgurl Says:

      Im wondering if gabbys comments about gymnastics being racist at excalibur hasnt soured the waters completely for USA gymnastics, and made them a group that big $$ sponsors wont want to be affiliated with

      • Kazic Says:

        I doubt it. One comment isn’t enough to cause that kind of fall out.
