Kaitlyn Hofland leads the seniors and Shallon Olsen the juniors. Victoria Moors got a 10.725 on beam but don’t worry the fix is in on floor she snuck into the final with 8th place.

    …..a 10 on beam?! Did she forget half the routine?

    • Catherine Says:

      Fell twice and lost connections I heard. Her floor score was low because she did a DOUBLE DOUBLE LAID OUT (sorry, it’s just so awesome) so she was down on execution a bit for the landing. Definitely not at her best, but wise to conserve herself at this point. She’s still almost guaranteed to make the Canadian team for worlds anyway.

      • Catherine Says:

        Here’s her beam. I love how light she is and her leap series. Looks like she is preserving herself by not fighting to stay on, which is such a Russian thing to do. Maybe feet or ankles are bothering her.

        So, 2 falls and then I think she will have lost the CR for the turn, lost the value of the layout (and possibly the CR for acro series?) and she also definitely lost the D+ dismount CR so that is one expensive routine.

      • lol Says:

        That was not layed out. It was a lot closer to a pike then a layed out anything.

      • Catherine Says:

        Only the Russians and Chinese do them correctly. But she doesn’t look herself..

      • sanitynmotion Says:

        How is it conserving yourself not to fall off? I’d think falling would hurt more than struggling to stay on…

    The USA has Marta, Russia has Valentina, who is pulling the strings in Canadian gymnastics?

    • Case Says:

      There aren’t any strings to pull. I think their entire National Gymnastics budget is $200,000.

    GTT I’m sure you’ll appreciate your girl Nastia not knowing the difference between a ring jump and a stag ring jump and giving some attitude to a legend around 3:30

    • Tortuga Says:

      Hahaha! I’m sure she won’t be interested since it was on PGC. But I was laughing so hard at her arguing with Bogi last night. Blaine Wilson was arguing at one point too about a call out.

      • Tortuga Says:

        To see the whole Nastia and Bogi bickering bit watch from about 2:48 – 4:00 min.

    • Catherine Says:

      That was so painful to watch. I’ll transcribe for GTT if she can’t bring herself to watch!

      Shayla and Nastia already bitchy before Pavs goes up. Pavs does glorious double stag and a full-turning (can’t really say proper Ruflova) Korbut flip. Female commentator (who couldn’t name Ponor’s Omelianchik and then declared it an illegal move???) is really annoying, doesn’t think Pavs has done the skill she meant to do.

      Shayla and some other US gymnasts to Nastia ‘What was that?’
      Nastia- ‘double stag’ Bing, correct Nastia!
      Shayla- can’t hear what she says..
      Nastia- (to male coach who is not Blaine) ‘What’s a one-legged jump?’ Err, what??
      Male dimwit- ‘I don’t know the name’
      Nastia- ‘A stag, a stag’
      Nastia- ‘She bent her legs!’ ARE YOU KIDDING ME
      Boginskaya- ‘She did double stag’
      Nastia- ‘Yeah. Double stag’ and turns away
      Boginskaya- gets Nastia’s attention. ‘No, double stag with the *mimes head release*’
      Nastia- (real snotty now) ‘Yeah I know!’ Yup, clearly you’re not ignorant of the skill at all. She bent her legs don’tchaknow!
      Nastia (to Shayla) ‘Okay double stag let’s go’

      Shayla does an okay double stag, back leg not near as high as Pavlova’s though. Then proceeds to do the next skill totally wonky and almost falls off.

      Everybody to Shayla- ‘That was great!’ Errr…
      Replay shows Shayla completely skewed to the right..
      Male commentator- Yeah she was a little crooked to the right
      Female dickhead commentator- Not sure I agree with that

      So..Nastia does not know the jump, thinks she knows it, gets all uppity at Boginskaya who was just trying to help..since it helps her and her team if Nastia remains in the dark. Shayla screws it up. Attitudes all round really.

      • Catherine Says:

        Oops, I meant to say..Nastia- ‘She bent her knees!’.

      • Tortuga Says:

        Pavs jump was better but Shayla’s connection was smoother. Off to the side on the swing down tho. I thought Hollie Vise was suppose to be there, guess not? I was disappointed to not see her.

      • Catherine Says:

        Hmm there’s another theory in that Nastia was correcting people who thought it was a switch ring or some such ‘She bent her knees!’ as in so it’s clearly not….still doesn’t excuse her being a wench to Boginskaya though.

      • Lithi Says:

        I’m actually surprised to see Nastia there, but then again I don’t know when her school lets out for summer break. Is she still in school? *throws hands up in the air*

        I have a friend who goes to NYU and their finals just ended yesterday. It was filmed around the 12th though which were right before finals, their reading days. Doing this right before finals though seems kind of like a bad idea, but maybe she can handle it..

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        I don’t know how she studies because she didn’t spend a single weekend at home. She was out doing something in different states. I bet her classes were all fluff minus that one math class that everyone else took in high school

      • Gymbee Says:

        Catherine, I didn’t think that was Shayla yelling something and throwing her arms out before Pavs went up on beam? At 2:38.

      • sanitynmotion Says:

        This whole thing looks like a joke. WTF is going on I don’t know.

    • Sara Says:

      When they listed the competitors for the Rope Climb, they listed Josh Orozco.. gee I wasn’t aware that John changed his name to Josh ahaha. This competition is on a whole other level of weird. I’m enjoying seeing Chellsie, Catalina, and Oksana though.

    One of the highlights of last night’s DWTS….Wynonna blew the walls out of the studio. Scroll down to see & hear her.

  5. biyatch Says:

    USAG posted a bunch of pix from a TOPS camp at the Ranch with Alicia in them handing out awards.

    If they do this pro-gym thing again they really need to get her to commentate. I cant believe NBC had Nastia commentating at AC. I would much rather lister to ASac talk vs Nastia

    • gymtruthteller Says:

      They should have hired Shannon Miller not that she wanted the job. I read on GGMB that Amanda Borden really wanted the job.

      • sainabou nyang Says:

        I don’t mind amanda although the constant head nodding and frozen smile is annoying lol.

      • exgymgurl Says:

        Amanda had botox and filler done recently. Before the cheer stuff she just did… Part of why she looks so windblown and frozen….. Im pretty sure….

    • gymtruthteller Says:

      Looks like Alicia accepted the job they gave her as a bribe to shut her up. Noo one in the gym community has any

      • sanitynmotion Says:

        Seriously. Disappointed. Guess she’s not writing that book she’d rather give away plastic trophies to little kids in anticipation of one of THEM being screwed eventually.
