    These scores incorporate bonuses, you can find explanation of that system on my blog- google beautiful gymnastics Chinese bonus system. But execution scores are as harsh as ever for everyone who isn’t Shang Chunsong so the scores are still impressive. Unfortunately the girls are just not built for the difficulty they’re being pushed for and it seems like Russia isn’t the only injury factory.

    Freaking delighted Yao Jinnan is back on track. Really expected she might retire after this year or go specialist. Just, wow. Some great results and routines from others too. Wang Yan, Luo Huan and Liu Tingting are still seriously impressive juniors. It’s Wang Yan who will almost certainly be at YOG. She came second to Bailie at Japan Jr last year and has a Rudi, DTT and a mid 6 beam routine..inconsistent a little though.

    Yao Jinnan has nicer lines now that she’s more grown. I’ll be excited for her return too. She wasn’t nearly done yet. She had some serious bad luck getting injured right before London.

      I am glad Yao Jinnan is back too. She could possibly be on the podium for AA or bars at Worlds this year if she stays healthy.

  3. GymMom Says:

    A Polk County Iowa judge will hear arguments on Wednesday over whether a former instructor at Chow’s Gymnastics and Dance Institute will be allowed, at least temporarily, to work for an Ankeny competitor

    Attorneys for the West Des Moines training facility, where Olympic gold medalists Gabby Douglas and Shawn Johnson trained under world-famous coach Liang Chow, filed a lawsuit against the former instructor, Kyetta Currier, and Triad Gymnastics last month. The lawsuit alleges the Ankeny facility improperly hired Currier after she left Chow’s in January because she signed a non-compete agreement.
    Polk County District Court Judge Mary Pat Gunderson granted a temporary injunction against Currier and Triad after the lawsuit was filed. Attorneys for Chow’s asked the judge to bar Currier from teaching gymnastics, tumbling or dance, citing the non-compete agreement.
    Attorneys on Wednesday will argue whether the temporary injunction should remain in place while litigation proceeds.
    In the lawsuit, attorneys for Chow’s argue that while teaching at the facility Currier learned instruction techniques and a training regimen that Chow spent 26 years developing. Before filing the lawsuit, Chow’s sent letters to both Currier and Triad to alert them to the non-compete agreement, the lawsuit said.
    Currier began working at Triad shortly after she left Chow’s, according to the lawsuit.

      I get signing a contract is legit but this is ridiculous. Where is this girl supposed to earn a living? Just seems kind of selfish.

      I love Chow to pieces but if he spent 25 years getting his shit together you would think he would have a better track record of

      • sanitynmotion Says:

        I was thinking the same thing. I mean, I can’t imagine what’s so proprietary about whatever it is he teaches. A training regimen? I mean, what if Shawn Johnson opens her own gym eventually and coaches – will he sue her, for potentially utilizing the regimen she was coached with? I can understand if this person was taking clients away from Chow, but if she’s just working somewhere else…

        Usually non-compete clauses are signed when the underlining issue is stealing business. Not practicing methods learned on a different job.

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        Well I guess a few months ago that is what happened. A lot of Chow level 10’s went to that guys gym ( A huge mass exodus) and this must be a product of that.

      • sanitynmotion Says:

        “underlying” not “underlining”…oops.

      • sanitynmotion Says:

        Then that makes sense why he’s doing this. She had to know the ramifications of the agreement she was signing, and he represents that he warned her about it, so…I can’t have much sympathy here for her.

        She should have either expected this or not left Chow. Or gone into a non-competitive environment (different type of gym or job or something)…or even worked at a gym in another state. It sounds like she left on her own accord.

        I think I have to side with Chow on this one if there was a mass exodus at his gym to her gym.

      • Case Says:

        But there’s likely more to the mass exodus than that…Chow’s level 10s were obviously unhappy. They probably didn’t get to work with Chow anyways.

      • Karlie Says:

        Ehh, I’m not so sure. I know it isn’t exactly an analogous situation, but I had a coach suddenly leave my club soccer team. She’d been my team’s head coach for two years and she tried to bring the entire team with her to a new club (a club that was trying to build its reputation and would have paid her more). It was very awkward, as a lot of us had already paid the fees for the coming year, and wouldn’t have gotten them refunded had we switched clubs; it was also pretty terrible for the club as we were their top team and our coach essentially said “screw you guys, I’m taking them elsewhere so I can make more money.” I couldn’t afford to leave (we got a new coach instead), but other girls did.

        I can easily see this as a similar situation: perhaps the L10 gymnasts liked her and were used to working with her so they followed her to another gym. Unfortunately, if you’ve signed a contract, that could be illegal. But without knowing the full details, I can’t really comment, just wanted to put that out there.

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        I don’t think the coach and the gymnasts were connected. At least no one has said they were.

      • Exgymgurl Says:

        She would have to move outside the area. Or wait a year. Its the same type of non disclosure they make you sign in Silicon Valley for a tech company. You can go to work for another tech company, you just cant steal their technology and take it with you to a competitor.

      • Katie Says:

        Noncompete clauses are standard in many industries but there has to be a limit, either time or distance or both. New hires at brokerage firms have to pay at least a 10k penalty if they hop to a different brokerage within a year of being Series 7 licensed. When my ex and I sold our restaurant, part of the sales agreement and contract was that we wouldn’t open another restaurant within 10 miles and a restaurant of the same cuisine within 20 miles for the next five years.
        I would not be surprised if there was a distance stipulated (20 miles or something) as to prevent any gymnasts from switching gyms.

      • flippateer Says:

        The previous article posted on this topic (a few blog posts ago) indicated that there was a modest geographic limit on the noncompete (only restricted working for employers within a few minutes/counties of Chow – and I think also for a limited period of time). I thought at the time that this was quite reasonable, and I don’t blame him for enforcing the noncompete.
