This is your Junior National team.
(Baumann was overscored on her sloppy beam and was given a Woga pass to the Junior National team. What a crock. Polina never should have been named either. She has one event and it is messy as hell. She even missed her handstands and still got a 6.3 start value)
Marta games (I mean names) the National team.
Bailie Key, Lauren Hernandez, Amelia Hundley, Nia Dennis, Norah Flatley, Veronica Hults, Alyssa Baumann & Polina Shchennikova
Triple Twist girls list their highlights
ENOUGH OF GANGMAN STYLE. USA-Gymnastics like supporting a guy that wants to blow up American kids? Come on.
Baumann never impressed me as a junior and she doesn’t as a senior.
They are trying to jinx Bailie. A little bobbly but she stayed on. I like how she works on the top of her toe’s sometimes. That is what beams are supposed to be doing. She only does it a little but she tries.
Lots of leg separations from Polina you can really see at this angle. She was dinged for them too.
I like the Chow leotards today.
Poor Vasquez. She’s such a tiny little thing. She is mentally over this routine and if Sam laughs again I am going to find her and smack her.lol (Joking USA-Gym in case you are stalking me) 8.60 on bars takes away any chance of making the junior team which is a shame.
Lets talk about bar settings again SAM. I like how they pretend this competition isn’t over because Laurie has to go. Its impossible for her to make up 1.5 points on one event that isn’t vault and she isn’t a better vaulter than Bailie to do that.
Someone has Carly’s floor music. (Frack)
Nica on beam- Great first half. Messy second half and her sheep was short.
Hundley on vault- (not shown) Step to the side and of course Sam was all over her like she has been the entire time.
Sydney hit floor.
Chellsie is judging bars.
Hernandez was overscored on beam. She missed her leaps and how is it not an execution deduction if you don’t EXECUTE the jump correctly Sam?
Beam judges in the junior meet were blind.
I don’t think the Woga girls like that cute guy.
Lots of one event gymnasts in this junior competition. Sydney on floor. Agrapides on vault.
Sam is being biased again. The Woga girl took ten seconds between her connections and Sam calls it a little bobble. Calls it a solid routine when all she did was bobble through it and miss every connection. I wonder if she was told to bad mouth CGA by mommy dearest. It just seemed calculated to me.
Bailie wins. Laurie second and Amelia third. Hey this was by prediction for Classics. I was only a competition off.
6.50 tenths is not close Amanda (Floor)
I say goodbye to myself as I talked to myself the last hour doing quick hits for me. Woo. I know you can’t start live blogging in the end of the third rotation and expect people to show up.
See you tonight for live blogging Senior Nationals. I promise to be here.
Dennis had a good beam but that score was too high.
Where the hell is Shannon Miller? USA-gymnastics lies
Yurchenko fulls. Welcome to 1992.
The more Peszek talks the more she annoys me.
Cho had some form issues on bars but she has potential.
That little girl has no luck on bars. Don’t want to butcher her name like Sam does. She falls again and is in tears. When you have a gymnast like this wouldn’t is be better to give her an easier routine and build her up? She swings the bars pretty well.
Replay with out music. Always fun.
Lots of leg issues for Nica bars but she stays on.
Laurie hit bars with a few leg issues not as many as Nica but it was a nice set. She’s very aggressive on bars. Not my taste but its nice to see her hit after the disaster at Classics.
If you would like to see what the Program looks like USA-gymnastics put it online.
Kocian is out for the Seniors (ankle) and North Stars’ Ashley Foss (Junior) is out with a dislocated left knee cap
