It seems a lot of you like to read the blog but don’t like to contribute:) partially my fault for not approving comments I know but a lot of you are against making this blog private.

      Sorry the only way I can post a blog on my phone is to start it, publish it then go back in a different place to finish it (I needed to link something and it would not work)

    I think it will be interesting to see how the Romanians do this quad!

    • sanitynmotion Says:

      I hope we have a quad with a dominant Larissa. She’ll give musty a run for her money…

      same. based what i have read online, they do seem to be more significantly “at risk” financially though. i wonder how long their gym program will last actually. hope they dont end up going through what the ukraine is with their gymnastics.

      Romania’s best juniors are 2014-2015. The 2013 ones are weak, they will be relying heavily on Diana, Larisa and Sandra. Chelaru, Haidu, Dragoi, Ponor are all gone. The best hopes other than those are Andreea Munteanu (2014), Silvia Zarzu (2014), Madalina Blendea (2015), Laura Jurca (2015), Asiana Peng (2016) and Andreea Iridon (2015).

    Looks like Shawn is heading to the X Games in Aspen? That explains her buying that snowboard?

    I really hope Romanian gymnastics dont suffer the same faith Ukraine did. I fear the may be running out of money.

  7. gia20 Says:

    I hope Romania doesn’t suffer the same faith Ukraine did. It’ll be extremely sad to see a program with such a history and success die because of lack of funding.

    Does anybody know if Jordyn is back in the gym, or are they still doing the “teen” tour?

    GTT: what is your twitter?

    Looks like Komova is dealing with a back injury. Poor thing.

    • Catherine Says:

      Sickening. She really has the worst luck. 2010 YOG was her at her non-injured non-recovering peak. She says they are not sure of the reason, but she suspects it is to do with her body adjusting to its growth. She is expected (at this point, more tests due in the next few days) to miss Russian Championships, and therefore miss Euros.

    • sanitynmotion Says:

      Damn. I’m wondering if gymnastics is just not good for fragile body types like hers. Although you never know I guess…maybe once the “kinks” are out she’ll be winning everything. I can’t help but think if Nastia can do it she totally can (win despite a fragile body type). Although Nastia had the judges in her corner.

      Musty is healthy though right?

      • terrigymfan Says:

        I sometimes think Sanity that the gymnasts with “fragile-looking” body types like Vika’s are really less prone to injury because they don’t land as hard and pound their muscles and bones (due to being lighter) as much the heavier gymnasts do (meaning the slimmer, lighter gymnasts only look more fragile). When you think about it, the 12-14 year old elites seem to have less problems dealing with injuries than the older girls. Regardless, poor Vika has had her share of injuries. I read an interview from before the Olympics I think where, if I recall correctly, her coach attributed some of the injuries she had had up to that point to the fact she just started going through puberty a few months earlier. She did grow several inches in 2012 and I’m sure is still growing. I wonder if indeed that has something to do with it.

      • sanitynmotion Says:

        You have a point there. Growth spurts are the worst for gymnasts I’m sure. Although Kyla managed to get through hers without any significant injury, although she was struggling with that amanar. Chellsie Memmel was injury prone and she wasn’t fragile.
