The Gymternet

For some reason I hate the term gymternet. I don’t know why I just do but I suppose it fits being my blog today is about, the gymternet.

Triple Twist blog has a Q and A with questions that were asked of them by their followers. The two have a lot of guts for putting themselves out there and as sisters they have a lot of chemistry in this video. I can totally not imagine me sitting in a room with my sisters and brother answering questions about anything. One of us would have been knocked into the bathtub 2 minutes All I will say about their video is that I could tell Ashlee was the trouble maker of the duo right away:) (Watch the video and you will see what I mean) You two are adorable and stay that way. Haters are going to hate and there is nothing you can do about that.

Aunt Joyce and Jenny Kirk have a new interview with Ashley Wagner on the skating lesson. I will watch later and let you know what it says. Ashley is a little snobby spoiled, self entitled brat so this should be fun to watch:)

Super Space medals for the 2014 Olympics. I am surprised Russia doesn’t have their flags on them since they will do everything they can to cheat to make sure they win.

I need to know if people are going to help me get the Shannon Miller video some votes when the contest starts? This is the link to all the videos and the Shannon one is up. We will need votes starting on the 29th. This blog gets 3000 hits a day that means at least a 3rd of you actually read this blog. Please make sure you help.

Tell me this isn’t the coolest thing ever?

    I’m with you… I’ve hated that term since I first heard it. I’m looking forward to the Triple Twist video. Based on your description, I’d love to see one with you and your siblings!

      Ditto gymternet.
      One question: what is the dialect to the girls (Triple twist)?

      Soon podium training, and they are going to stream that as well:-)
      Really looking forward to see (hopefully) upgrades from Kyla, and where McKayla is in her process.

      • Gymbee Says:

        H, where are they streaming it? Is it here?


      • H Says:

        Believe so. I was reading their facebook page, and they confirmed that they were also going to stream podium training … if it is correct, I guess they would put a link for that (as well)on their facebook page

    The link is above Tulip. I was going to post the video like I did the skating lesson but I wanted to make sure the girls got the hits at youtube.

    Actually GTT if you made a video that would be kind of awesome…can’t wait to watch these, of course while not at work. Sigh.

    • gymtruthteller Says:

      I don’t have the time or the patience to make one of these. I don’t know how people have time to make them as it is.I don’t own a program to make one either. Mine would be epic and it would be fun:) If I had time and talent I would make one of all the times Nastia had fallen and label it, My favorite Nastia moments. My fave would be the one of her falling off the beam on her mount at the American cup. where she goes up and kicks over the beam and falls off the

      • Katie Says:

        You could start with her 2005 American cup fall on the gienger and chronologically document her falls and end with the 2012 trials fall on the geinger. Slice some shots of her waving to the crowd

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        I could do many but I really don’t have the time or artistic ability

      • sanitynmotion Says:

        lol – I know that mount. I loved the commentator’s reactions too like “oh!” – and then splice in Carly Patterson “that’s too bad…”

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        That would be perfect. Maybe you should make

      • sanitynmotion Says:

        I would but I have no clue honestly how to even make a video, much less use splicing and dicing.

      • Tortuga Says:

        Hahaha Sanity thats hilarious! You could also put a cut of Marta jumping in shock/disgrace from the fall then shaking her head lol!

      • terrigymfan Says:

        I would love to see a video showing cutouts of Nastia, Shawn, Marta, etc. with just their mouths moving with funny dialogue. Of course we would have Nastia saying all sorts of bitchy things, Marta saying devious things, etc.

      • Tortuga Says:

        Like Nastia yelling “It’s a Deltchev!”

      • Akshay Says:

        I figured I’d take one for the team and make it. You can find it at this link:


        If you all have any further suggestions for videos, etc. let me know! I’m not very good at it compared to some, but I’ll do the best I can.

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        I don’t know who you are but I love you. That was awesome

      • sanitynmotion Says:

        You. Are. Awesome.

        GTT/terri – I think it was Carly’s reaction after a Romanian fell at 2003 Worlds (and then the US won gold).

      • terrigymfan Says:

        Is Carly saying, “Oh, that’s sad.” I can’t quite make it out. It is funny though the wayright after she says it she then turns her head to the side with this look of, “Yeah, like I really give a sh__.”

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        Carly said, Oh that’s to bad. lol she said it at the Olympics after the Romanians (I believe) fell

      • terrigymfan Says:

        Sorry, I’m a little slow. Great job by Akshay splicing the two clips together.

      • terrigymfan Says:

        I would love to see someone overlay Al Trautwig’s “She’s gonna need some Dr. Phil” comment at the end of this clip on the top of the YouTube clip of Nastia falling off bars at last year’s Olympic Trials.

  4. Karlie Says:

    haha GTT, you reposted my confession from gymfanconfessions on your tumblr (the Bulimar one)! My sister and I wrote in to the site mostly because I’ve been reading it for so long and I wanted to see if it would actually go through. Although I do firmly believe that Belu treats Bulimar poorly and hope she does well at Worlds.

    • Catherine Says:

      I’ve had a few go through, takes a few weeks unless you make it relevant about an ongoing/just over competition and then it’s fairly immediate. They explained that when they make a confession, the rest of the unmade ones gets shuffled in order to avoid loads about the same gymnast. Obviously not done when some freak submitted in a billion ones about Sydney Johnson-Scharpf. And there’s ALWAYS Mustafina ones everywhere.

    • gymtruthteller Says:

      What is your tumblr name. I’ll follow you

      • Catherine Says:

        Who me? I don’t have one. I tried but mehh. I stalk wats good gabby, what should gym fans, Lauren Hopkins, tripletwist and sometimes decencybedamned, livefrompyongyang, ikttruth and jordynslefteyebrow. I made an ask, way less effort than tumblr in general.

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        The girl who said i reposted her picture on tumblr.

      • Catherine Says:

        Ahh. Formatting of comments isn’t that clear. But she might not either, you don’t need an account to submit to GFC.

      • Karlie Says:

        I don’t have a tumblr – sorry if that was unclear. I meant that I submitted that confession to GFC but as Catherine noted I don’t have a tumblr, I submitted using my gmail. I just appreciated the re-post, and am kind of glad that someone else agrees that Bulimar gets shafted/screwed over by Belu.

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        I think I get it Your confession and yes, I think Bulimer is underrated

  5. JAS4 Says:

    I really hope Kyla shows some upgrades this weekend at least on floor!

    • H Says:

      If not, it will be hard to understand. Of course, injury … but maybe it is more likely that her coaches still want her to be picture perfect before she shows of anything new.

      • sanitynmotion Says:

        It will be interesting to say the least. I hope there’s You Tube footage because I won’t be around to watch online.

        I’d be willing to bet though that any upgrades we see from Kyla will be on bars and beam. Floor upgrades might wait until nationals.

        I still wonder if we’ll ever see her amanar again. Biles’ ask thingie mentioned she saw her training it at camp so I am hopeful, but then again you never know.

        I hope Kyla does something because this really could be her “year” given that Ohashi is out and Marta has no reason to block Kyla from showing her full potential. All of that is out the window next year, but I can’t help but root for the girl, especially given that Marta obviously had no qualms potentially taking away her Olympics in favor of Nastia. I still cannot believe the golden ticket Nastia was given, and thank goodness she sucked it up.

      • Catherine Says:

        News- McKayla will do vault and floor only. Not a major surprise I suppose. Also there are some gross leotards in store, Chow’s girls and a few more are in our favourite pink..I think Chow’s have Russia’s universiade team Leo in pink actually and wow is it bad. Laurie Hernandez will be in a dodgy looking lime green, will reserve judgement a bit as it’s a moving, slightly unclear clip- and her teammates Foberg and Agripedes. Mykayla Skinner has a black and bronze Leo that could be nice though.

      • sanitynmotion Says:

        I seem to remember Chow’s leos typically being kind of suspect – remember Shawn’s from her comeback? And even Gabby’s was some kind of fluorescent disaster. The prettiest leos were from Brestyan’s (does he have anyone going to Classics?)

        What really took the cake for me though were those dog collar burgundy/bling monstrosities WOGA was sporting last year at nationals I believe. Whoo-wee were those a sight for sore eyes.

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        Shawn wore ugly orange in 08

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        Those dog collar woga ones were gross.

    This never gets old talk about shawn nastia and marta and mouths moving

    ever… timeless
