Sabrina Vega Interview

May 14, 2013

The blog Arabian Punch front has a great interview with Sabrina Vega.


Part 1
Part 2

Its a great interview, kudos to the blog for the interview. Sabrina plans on continuing to train elite to make the 2016 Olympic team. Maybe a new coaching situation can turn things around but I don’t see her making any Olympic team.

The one thing I did find interesting in this interview was when Sabrina talks about how different her new gym is vs her old. She states this gym is all about upgrading pretty much implying her old gym kept her back.


How does it feel to live life without a soul Chellsie Memmel ? I wonder if she has any clue just how many people feel she literally sold her soul to the devil for a job?

There doesn’t seem to be a single gymnast supporting Aly for DWTS. Same way no one gave a shit that Shannon Miller had cancer. I guess gymnasts don’t support gymnasts unless it involves a TV appearance.

Impress me: Alicia Sacramone

May 13, 2013

It takes a lot to impress me and not a lot of people do it. I am pretty critical when it comes to gymnastics (this is where you all say, GTT critical? noooooooooooooooooooo:) so I thought I write a blog on things that impress me and tonight’s blog is about, Alicia Sacramone.

In general Alicia the person does not impress me. Spoiled Queen Bee’s that have their minions do their dirty work for them are not high on my list of favorite people but Alicia the gymnast with clean form has always impressed me but this blog isn’t about Alicia the Gymnast. Its about Alicia the beamer. That’s right I called Alicia , a beamer.

Okay so in general nothing Alicia ever did in beam was very impressive. Watching her back in 2004 or 2005 or 2006 you wouldn’t have been surprised at all with what happened in 2008

but what happened after 2008 is pretty impressive. Alicia, the beamer never missed another beam routine. Call it Alicia being stubborn. Call it Alicia wanting to prove Marta wrong but whatever you call it, not missing a beam routine in 3 years is pretty impressive in my book and that is why, for now I call Alicia Sacramone, a beamer:)

Chellsie Memmel- Homage to a champion

May 10, 2013


I suggest everyone stop watching after 2008 Olympic Trials. The rest just pisses you off and brings up feelings of rage and dreams of offing Marta and burying her in Virginia with the terrorist:)

FOR THE RECORD, I am just kidding about offing Marta.I have no plans to push her in front of a mack truck or pushing her head first off a balance beam.

WTF Wednesday

May 8, 2013



Daniela Silivas inspired this new series here at Gymtruthteller that I am calling, “WTF Wednesday. (Lets just pretend its Wednesday right now. Its almost:)


I really want to ask Daniela exactly what she was thinking when she decided to get this  Did she think it would be a good idea?


First impressions are hard to get out of your head and if this was the first picture you have ever seen of Daniela I am sure you were thinking, WTF was she thinking?

Anyone else find this creepy???

and what the hell is wrong with people these days? shame on the cops in Cleveland for ignoring multiple complaints to this house. You mean to tell me 4 women crawling in the dirt on leashes isn’t a reason enough to go inside?

This is crazy.

Oh and I always wondered where Jordyn Wieber’s brother got his looks from. Someone found the dad on facebook. He’s hot. Jordyn has a hot dad:)
