Gaggy’s family really are horrible class-less human beings. Do they really need to degrade a team mate of their sisters/daughters just because she overscored their precious little Gaggy? These people make me sick.
Nero, I think Bailie’s layout was downgraded & credited as a back pike. When I calculated the d-score w/ the back pike + her connections from her front tuck, front aerial & dismount, I got 6.2 (which is the same d-score she got @ the meet). I agree w/ you, I hope she takes that series out & does something else (maybe a BHS+LOSO+LOSO combo?). She did upgrade her bars – she connects the Ricna + Pak, then she does a Maloney + shoot + stalder 1/1 + Ray. It was pretty good, though I think she can still work more to improve on her form.
As for Gabby, I *think* her switch ring leap (though not really one) on beam was credited, which annoys me beyond anything else. It’s pretty obvious her head doesn’t tilt back far enough to the point where her head & foot are at the same level.
There is no way that thing should have been credited. It wasn’t even close to where it should have been but a lot of the beam connections were unfairly credited.
Jesolo is turning into a glorified Nationals.
Aly can improve her flexability she did it in 2012. I hope someone is telling her to fix it. Marta got involved last time so I guess we will find out if Marta wants her on the team or not by if the improvements happen again.
I so hope gabby gets in trouble for this….I lost what little shred of respect I had for her after this. From the training videos she is struggling on bars, and obviously marta didnt give her simones spot in the bar final. I think shes lost having Aly in her corner, and I think up to this point Aly got gabby through TF beam in London, and was carrying her mentally. Aly I know you are a team player and all, but its so wrong that Gabby retweeted this. Gabby should be awesome in her own right and not have to tear down other people. She looked pissed the whole competition.
Gabby is 1.9 away from her D score in London. She needs to work on every event. Her vault was better in the training videos. She took out her leap out of her punch front on beam and her leap out of her first tumbling pass. Something was missing in bars. However, I though her beam was pretty good for Gabby.
Aly needs to improve on every event except floor. Her floor was just as good as it was in London. The best part about their comeback was they didn’t look anything like Nastia did in her comeback.
Kyla did great on vault, bars, and beam. She would have only needed higher than a 13.85 on floor to medal in the AA. In my opinion this wasn’t an important meet however, everything matters to Martha.
Keys did amazing!
Biles should have stayed at home and rested. I love Biles it’s just my opinion.
Although Gabby is not a likeable person, at least she did put effort on her comeback trails not too late, not like someone announced comeback and training 9 months before Olympic and fell the face on floor to steal limelight and attention in Trial. So I think she do much better job than someone.
I refuse to give anyone credit for not being a liar looking for attention. Nastia being in this to steal an Olympic spot with hopes of more endorsements
is beyond ridiculous but Gabby not being a liar is something we should expect not praise. IMO of course
So I’m not sure if this is the right place to post this, but for the ninth year in a row, the US women have failed to medal at figure skating worlds. Bitchy Gracie Gold beat bitchy Ashley Wagner by one place, 4th to 5th.
They were very lucky too because both were grossly overscored especially Gracie. If it wasn’t for the downgrading of the Japanese team and the overscoring of Priness Gracie they would have 3 spots next year not 3.
I am going to Worlds next year with my niece and 2 friends. Only ladies and mens because I hate pairs and ice dancing is fixed.
I hope USAG has a security plan that involves only half the girls and coaches on one plane and the other half taking another plane, for big groups like jesolo. Juniors and seniors mixed, because if that plane crashed, USAG would seriously be hurting, there would be no continuity
looks like simone tave up the bars spot in EF, won beam vault and floor, aly took third on floor, alyssa took second on beam and kyla took forst on bars, bailie key took second on bars. good decision to rest simones shoulder
