Biyatch posted this in the comments section. It’s a preview of the new Gymnastike’s series, Behind the Routine featuring Jordyn Wieber.
So what do you think? I think John is an idiot that cost Jordyn a chance at the AA because of refusing to change her beam routine. I also think Jordyn should have been in the AA over Gabby anyway but blaming the pressure is an excuse. Everyone had pressure on them they are competing AT THE OLYMPIC GAMES and Jordyn did a good job. The problem was her coach not fixing the beam routine.
If you can’t handle the pressure of sport become an artist.
Here is a promising floor routine from the recent Russian Juniors Nationals. I am am going to ignore the fact that she fell twice but give her credit for actually competing some real difficulty in her routine. If she learns to land on her feet she has a pretty decent routine. I don’t read Russian so I have no clue who this is (Thanks to Catherine, It is Anastasia Dmitrieva) but it is nice to see someone over seas actually have the potential that the juniors here in the US have.
