Bye Talia Chiarelli. I will miss you but…. European Prelims

How ironic that Talia Chiarelli’s last twitter post ( she up-dated it.lol)

Sorry Talia but your daddy had to go. You see this downfall all started when YOUR father (and his buddy Cam Neely who should ALSO be fired today) decided that Tim Thomas AFTER he won us the Cup wasn’t worth the money so instead they gave more playing time to the malcontent with the stupid name and that is where this all fell apart so while you are now homeless and looking for a new hood PLEASE remember that if your father had done the right thing instead of blaming Tim Thomas for not going to the White House this wouldn’t be happening right now.

Congratulations to Boston’s own Houry Gebeshian for making it into the AA at the Europeans. Dear Andreea Iridion, STAY ON THE BARS

    I still don’t understand what’s going on. Who is Talia…

  2. Exgymgurl Says:

    talia is a gymnast that trained at brestyns with aly and for a time was a canadian olympic contender to be on the 2012 team. Now she competes for michigan NCAA I think… but doesnt do bars shocking

  3. JAS4 Says:

    UB finals could be close especially between the top two or three if everyone hits.

  4. Uglyfatkid Says:

    Can someone tell me how in the hell Maria Kharenkova (hence to be known as simply MKova…’cause I’ll never remember how to spell her last name) scored a 15 with that routine? There is no way she should have received credit for half of those connections. The execution was also horrific with all the wobbles, and her switch half wasn’t close to a full 180 split (but we can’t talk about that…’cause the Russian girls never any issues with that sort of thing. It’s only the Americans who have those issues right? Insert annoyed face here).

    It’s nice to see Gulia with her full potential back on vault. If I remember correctly, hasn’t she been performing watered down vaults in the last few comps?

    People keep saying AFan is going to be a big contender for a floor metal (and I hope she is), but that routine wasn’t great. Her execution needs to come up if she has any hopes of metaling.

    • Uglyfatkid Says:

      PS – thanks for posting the links to the routines GTT. I’m too lazy to go looking for them, so I appreciate you doing all the work for me. Maybe I should change my name to UglyfatLAZYkid (or UFLK for short)? 🙂

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        You’re welcome. I usually start to do it for all competitions and get bored but this time I was mindless and before I knew it I was almost done:)

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        I added a few more

    • Brittany Says:

      Completely agree about MKova’s (lol) beam. Soooo over scored. Scary to think that the #1 AA’er in Europe right now is Maria Kharenkova….. Eeeek.

    • sanitynmotion Says:

      Agree about beam too. And Pharell in the background super distracting. But please tell MKova to point her toes, my gawd. Wobble, wobble, wobble.

    • gymtruthteller Says:

      AFan took out some moves for qualifying. At least the single turn connected to her double turn. She has a few months to upgrade but the judges love Simone on floor even when she bounces out of her passes she doesn’t get deducted so I don’t think AFan has a chance

      • sanitynmotion Says:

        Afan’s tattoo is distracting.

        That being said, I still much prefer her dance-ability to Simone’s. Yet Simone has that tumbling that can’t be beat.

        From the vantage point in the Afan video you can really see how a lot of girls will literally run out of “room” tumbling. The floor looks really small!

  5. Gymbee Says:

    Carlotta Ferlito (ITA) is not impressed:

    Which means:
    “I’m used to be left out of finals for thousandths of a point, and I am used to getting shafted (lit: to get it in the a$$). I’ll get over this one too, (bad word)”

    • Gymbee Says:

      And:

      • Melanie Says:

        Ah, what a charmer. Did she not learn her lesson after 2013?

        In case she didn’t notice, the beam scores were INCREDIBLY close – only 3 tenths separating 2nd place from Carlotta in 10th. It’s not like there was blatant favoritism or anything. She’s just a poor loser.

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        Andreea Iridon was way more nit picked than Carlotta but whatever Carlotta. Whatever these European championships scores were outrages for a lot of people.

    • sanitynmotion Says:

      It’s kind of refreshing she’s not going for the “innocent pixie gymnast” hype though. But yeah, someone needs to take her smart phone away from her. Can you imagine if she were on the US team with Marta? That would actually be comical.

      • JAS4 Says:

        I am pretty sure Marta would make her tweet an apology and then burn all her electronic devices or more likely just blackball her forever lol

      • Gymbee Says:

        Apparently the federation have said they’re distancing themselves from those tweets and they don’t support it. Not the message or the extremely foul language.

        She’s a military gymnast also, and apparently there could be repercussions.

  6. Melanie Says:

    Steingruber gets gold in the AA! I really like her, so I’m very happy. Kharenkova did pretty well, but she needs to upgrade that FTY or she’ll never be able to challenge for an AA in a deeper field. With Iordache and Mustafina out, I couldn’t be prouder of Steingruber for taking advantage of that opportunity.

    • JAS4 Says:

      I like Steingruber as well and I am glad she was able to make history for herself and her country.

  7. ilanchik20 Says:

    Who is watching NCAA’s?

    LSU just imploded on beam and is missing the Super Six. My home-team Auburn is in. I feel bad for LSU but I’m so freaking excited. It’s nice when consistency wins!
