I haven’t followed skating as much since the Kween retired but I will say that out of the current US skaters I like Wagner the best. Her performance in that video looks considerably improved from the Olympics.
I know it’s early on in the season and whatnot but apparently the scoop from camp is that Simone had two falls so Bailie Key won the all around. Anyone think Bailie could slip into SCAM ahead of Skinner? Really, I’m fine with Skinner and think she’s obviously been working hard but you know how Marta likes to mix things up.
Yeah, that’s true! It has to at least be a great motivator. I gather that it went something like this from the asks and whatnot I’ve been reading: 1. Bailie, 2. Simone, 3. Laurie Hernandez, 4. another junior (maybe Norah?), 5. Jazzy, 6. Maddie Desch. Interesting. I’m surprised to see Maddie sneak up there. Hmm, MG Elite says Laurie got first of the juniors (3rd with jrs and srs) and Jazzy got 3rd (5th with jrs and srs) so I wonder what other junior it could have otherwise been. I should probably stop thinking about this and do some work instead but I’m all kinds of intrigued.
Newsflash! Shawn is covering the Super Bowl for Inside Edition…annoying everyone the way she talks thru her teeth. Her boyfriend, Andrew East testified this week in the rape trial of several Vanderbilt football players. Oh and Shawn is stalking my Twitter feed(she’s following me), but I’m going to block her.
Does she know how much you love her GymMom? That’s so funny! (about her stalking you).
We (or I) miss you by the way.
I will not be watching her cover the Super Bowl. That’s insane – aren’t there enough x-football players out there to cover football’s largest event of the year? ASac would have even made more sense considering she’s married to a guy who warms the bench year-round…he’d have more insight to give her at least.
Brady Quinn has a full time broadcasting gig. Even if you fail on the field, if you look good doing it you can find work that way. I’m pretty sure between Brady’s 6 years in the league, broadcasting gig and Alicia’s stock options she got from Under Armour when she signed with them in 2011, they went be hurting for money anytime soon.
i got the impression that everyone showed half routines, and then certain people (scam and scam backups along with people trying to make the national team) showed full routines for readiness. My bet is desch and key are scam backups, and that skinner fell or something.
Macy Toronjo is competing the Nastia Liukin Cup, I didn’t realize she dropped down to level 10. I guess she’s preparing for college now but I was hoping to see a bit more of her as an elite. Her gymnastics were nice and had potential.
Ahh ok, I wondered if that may have been the case. Back to your question, I’m wondering the same thing. I think Norah is full of potential but as of now, her difficulty on most of the events is too low to determine how she’ll do. I think Alexis is great but I’m not sure if she can hold her own against the new crop of Seniors.
It’s really surprising since the progress in vaulting difficulty isn’t a perspective people lack, whereas the other tidbits have shock factor. Also McKayla Maroney didn’t capture vault gold, so now I question some of the other facts in this article.
It’s a listicle of facts. The best one is that Cleopatra/Queen of Egypt lived closer to the construction of the first Pizza Hut then she did to the construction of the great pyramids – but that fact could be super wrong too.
This article is pretty misleading. It makes it sound like Aly’s slated to compete in Jesolo (which I hope she will!) when she hasn’t been selected yet. It also says that she plans to compete at Worlds. Methinks the author doesn’t understand the selection process…
All I could think looking at that picture is why isn’t Nastia putting herself in the center and having everyone bow down to her.lol Bross looks like she gained quite a bit of weight but eventually I am sure she will even out.
