Vote in the Inside Gymnastics poll. Lets make sure we all vote Shannon Miller as best commentator. Maybe NBC will see it and fire the idiots currently doing the commentating.
I really wanted to vote Nastia as best half ass’d comeback but since the word half ass’d was missing I voted for Alicia instead:)
The most interesting comment
Memmel said she and her father and coach, Andy, considered sticking around for next year’s world championships, where competition will be limited to individual events. But she decided against it, unsure she’d have the support of national team coordinator Martha Karolyi.
I am not exactly sure why she had an official announcement to retire (Non of the Mag seven did this, God even Nastia didn’t) but I do love how USA-Gymnastics has all of a sudden found love for Chellsie Memmel after you know, paying her off:)
Lets discuss? I wish she would not retire and go out with a bang but I guess training for one more Nationals would be a waste of time.
Chellsie will always be one of my favorites for her ability to shut the world up when they count her out and even with her bad form she was one hell of a gymnast. It’s too bad injuries pretty much robbed her of a chance at being America’s most decorated gymnast.
What are your favorite Chellsie memories? Mine will always be seeing her in person kick some ass at the 2003 Worlds. Marta didn’t want her there but after all the injuries she had no choice and Chellsie came and proved the old bitch wrong.
That and the 2008 Olympic Trials day 2 floor routine. Chellsie was the original Aly Raisman
