So I went to Atlanta History center today. They had the 1996 Olympics exhibit there among other things. I think Strugg was featured in 3 diff places. There wasn’t a team photo anywhere but all other team members were there separately except Moceanu lol
I will have to check that out next time I am in Atlanta. I am a history nerd lol. Atlanta is only about 4hours away so maybe I can talk my husband in to another family trip to Atlanta lol. We haven’t been there in a few years, but last time we were there we went to the coca-cola factory.
Speaking of new careers, Boguinskaia had a selfie of herself wearing a necklace designed by…*drumroll* Moceanu. Apparently our Dom is now going to try and conquer the jewelry industry.
From a neutral perspective, it doesn’t look too shabby. I would like a closer look to see if the clear bicones are Swarovski or Chinese crystals. For the record, Chinese crystals look like Swarovski but they lack the luster and sparkle.
(Sorry to take away from Peng Peng, I wish her good luck.)
Sorry to double post, but is it me or is Bart Conner a monstrous publicity whore? It seemed like ever since he and Nadia got married he’s been shoving his face into everything gymnastics. He’s just rubbing me the wrong way lately.
These blogs never stay on topic so feel free to talk about anything from baseball to idiot lunatics that felt the need to kill 2 innocent cops over 2 criminal ‘ s that got what they deserved well the one that strangled the store clerk got what he deserved at least. The other law breaker should have done what he was told and he would still be alive today.
If this reply was directed at me I meant that Kim had photos of the Karolyis at that NY shindig in her Instagram. If this wasn’t directed at me I apologize, seems like WP has the replies in a weird format if replying to anything but the original comment.
I won’t be at trials. can’t justify the money to fly across the Country for 1 meet. I might go to Classics in CT if I can get a good hotel for one night. Won’t be staying for mens trials. Not that I wouldn’t but justifying the hotel cost for a meet I don’t really care about
I’d like to talk about Marta’s golden gymnasts and those she’ll snub, but could easily replace anyone who breaks. These are the potential seniors for 2015. I think the world team will be made up girls in Group A, and Group B will be snubbed.
Group A: Biles, Raisman, Skinner, Ross, Douglas**, Gowey, Maroney, Dennis, Key, Locklear, Baumann, Kocian (12)
Group B: Nichols, Ernst*, Priessman*, Vega, Desch, Hults, Hundley, Navarro, Schchennikova, Skaggs, Foss, Vasquez, Bradley, Schild, Oakley, Toronjo, Ogden, Reinstadtler, Hano, Ramler, Cho (21)
*I don’t know if these two intend to continue elite, everyone else I assume they will.
I originally thought Key for American Cup, but I kinda think Raisman should go for a third? time. It would be a bigger draw I think
@sportsfan – you’re right, but I’m hoping she’ll come back – she actually had a decent AA total and her vaulting is special. Will be tough with competition from both Biles and Skinner to make a team, since her finals spot is not guaranteed.
@sainabou – difficult to know since the 2016 seniors are so far out, but I definitely like Flatley over Baumann – Flatley’s problem is that there is enough talent on beam amongst the top AA gymnasts. I don’t know if the MG Elite girls will be able to have a top three event or break into the very top of the AA podium to displace the others in the A group. Add Dowell to the B group, I think she might reappear for the 2016 season
