Lauren Mitchell Update

She competed beam and floor at National finishing 4th on beam and first on floor.

Any idea’s for blogs people would be greatly appreciated plus if anyone wants to guest blog write it and I will

Alicia Quinn would like you to drop and give her ten. So does her Husband. Sorry all those times I called you most overrated back up QB of all time Brady. Thanks for the defending of the witch hunt.

    I like this girl as a person but I can’t help but think she’s past her prime. If she can make Rio though all the power to her.

    • gymtruthteller Says:

      She is always injured but it’s her life so more power to her. She won floor and finished 4th on beam with low scores and I expect her to be injured before the Olympics next year anyway but Australia doesn’t have a lot of talent at the moment so she might be needed

    • gymbot Says:

      I liked her from this interview too, and I also like her dorky/eccentric style on floor.

  2. Ilanchik20 Says:

    Simone said on tumbler that she plans to compete the Cheng this year. I’m excited to see someone compete without killing themselves.

  3. Ilanchik20 Says:

    And as far as blogs go, how about “best and worst of each quad.” I need some politics in gymnastics drama to procrastinate lol

    • gymtruthteller Says:

      That sounds like a lot of work. I have become lazy. I was going to do a best vaults of all time but got lazy after looking at 2 of them. I already know who will be number 1 and 2 but everyone else blah so I thought I would do a best US vaults of all time and I never made it to watching any videos fro that one.

      I don’t know I am so un motivated these days to do anything.

      • Sainabou Nyang Says:

        I enjoyes your analysis on the 01-04 quad. But I agree Ilanchick Id like to see a best and worst quad. I have a feeling the quad leading up to Tokyo will be kind of dull. Simone has ruined it for me lol. When she retires from elite who else can match her medal for medal from team usa?

    • gymtruthteller Says:

      Moceanu sent Simone a necklace and her book. I swear that girl would do anything for attention. No one else would have the audacity to
      think they are important enough to matter that much.

  4. G Says:

    Hey GTT, I would be happy to write a post! I could maybe do a best and worst like Ilanchick mentioned above but I’m not well versed on any quad pre-Magnificent 7. Let me know if there is any other ideas or I could come up with one 🙂

    • gymtruthteller Says:

      Write whatever you like. You can do favorite floor routines of all time or favorite skills or gymnasts. I am not picky.

      • G Says:

        Ok! I’ve read a lot of gymnastics memoirs (pretty much all of them I think), I could review them.

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        Fine with me as long as you provide NO pictures of Nastia or Moceanu I need to look at:)

    • G Says:

      Or I might end up doing a favorite floor routine or skills lol. I’ll have it e-mailed to you by Saturday!

  5. Lithi Says:

    Oooh…a guest post. It’s a story, similar to what Sarah used to write and it’s rather NSFW. I’m not sure that would be welcome.

    On the other hand, I could state how the IG HOF is a total joke and that Bart Conner needs to get the hell over himself.

  6. JAS4 Says:

    Maybe you could do a gymnastics conspiracy theory blog?(I know we’ve talked about them before but i can’t remember if you’ve blogged about it before)

  7. gymbot Says:

    I request the mapping of the 2000-2004 quad drama that exgymgurl (a few blogs back) was going to do

    • G Says:

      Yes! I feel like I know so little about the drama in that quad!

    • Tortuga Says:

      Oh but this is interesting as well. We should do 04-08 as well, also interesting. Oh and you have to include the tour where Shayla got the boot for drinking.

    • Exgymgurl Says:

      I have no time to write anything until after 7/1/2015

    • sanitynmotion Says:

      I’m not too familiar with this drama either. I kind of quit watching gymnastics after 1998, and before Atler had her meltdown. I had high hopes Shannon would make that team then saw she got injured.

      I don’t even know who Morgan White is really. It’s embarrassing really.

  8. exgymgurl Says:

    No, my companies fiscal year ends end of June, I found myself wondering if Shannon had actually competed at trials for both days would she have been put on the team in 2000. I think Bela karolyi didn’t like the face that she always injured out like Moceanu did.

    • exgymgurl Says:

      Id replace dawes with miller and actually put Atler on the team to vault, ( because she outscored everyone else when she was on) floor and beam and take Schweikert out as well. If Elise Ray had done her job in TF on Floor and Beam the US would have medaled anyway. There is no way I would have put Morgan White anywhere near an Olympic team. They were so weak on vault. Three weeks with the Karolyis, and he could have built Atler back and just not ever made her compete bars.

  9. Guest Says:

    Oh… Shawn looks like she is in good shape now.

  10. G Says:

    Finished early and e-mailed my blog to you GTT:)

  11. JAS4 Says:

    I tried a couple or times to post a reply but it isn’t showing up?

    • gymtruthteller Says:

      Did you post a link? That goes straight to approval and I will look there and spam when I get on my computer.

  12. aerial Says:

    I’m over discussing the code, the FIG politics and so on. Especially when in a competition lull and as I get older I realize I’m not above the drama whatsoever and even rehashing it is all good for me. Some good ones mentioned above, and in no particular order:

    – Nastia vs. Johnson (so obvious they don’t get along, don’t really cheer the other on, but at least Johnson is still kinder about the interactions while botoxed ice queen is gaining enemies by the day)
    – Jennie Thompson and Ashley Priess walking away from massive comps and suddenly retiring
    – Shayla Worley – so overprotected with her drinking mess on the tour, shady fundraising and not returning the funds for her Olympics trip, and STILL being the star of her college team despite not being able to walk two steps without falling, score above 9.7 and STILL being in every line up week after week – why does the mean girl always win and never get punished?? Hate peeps like this
    – anything to do with Atler – sorry – but in all her raw form, I loved her and she has a heart of gold, can’t help but be interested in her stories, such a naturally gifted person
    – Anna Li seeming to have no former gymnast friends?? Called out girl bullying on the post-Olympic tour and nada since then
    – Memmel and Johnson being odd girls out
    – Brenna Dowell not being picked for comps when she was healed and placed above others at camp who made teams
    – as a starting point.

    I’ve followed gymnastics since Kim Z. won in 1991 and unlike skating, which has its blips for me depending on whose big and who I like, whereas it’s been easier to follow gymnastics and its gyms, camps, programs and elite farms as the internet has come into play. So I’ve been around for a lot, but certain gossip still has the potential to be tapped into people!

    • Exgymgurl Says:

      i think ive figured out brenna and anna li. marta doesnt like gamers, she likes people that repeat in competition what they are doing in practice. marta values consistency, neither of them were consistent

    • JK Says:

      I read that Shayla said some racist things (I think it was about the Chinese gymnasts) – is this true? If so, does anybody know what she said?

      • Ilanchik20 Says:

        I heard that too. I think it was a post or comment under Nastias FB pic (the one of them on the beach) that she has since taken down. Something about the age, I think.

        Shayla Worley also got drunk on tour and while at Georgia so she is just one big problem lol

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        If I remember correctly it has more to do with their ages then their race but my memory isn’t that great anymore

  13. JAS4 Says:

    no links just tried to post it a few more times but it doesn’t show up

  14. JAS4 Says:

    I keep trying to post it but it won’t show up I said in it that we could add b-o-b (added the dashes so hopefully it will show up this time in case his name is banned or something lol) but was he really she who shall not be named or a relative or friend on hers or maybe a crazy fan of hers lol

  15. JAS4 Says:

    yay it showed up this time lol does wordpress automatically send any mentioning of the name b-o-b to spam GTT? lol but seriously I think he could have been her or maybe one of her bffs lol

  16. gymbot Says:

    The Torino/Four Nations Cup has a live feed and starts around 10:45am EST for anyone who is interested.

  17. G Says:

    Apparently Alexis Vazquez is moving to California, wonder if she found a gym she liked there more to train for college. Or she moved to Iowa just to train with Chow and is from Cali, not sure.

    • Ilanchik20 Says:

      I’m pretty certain she is from Californiac (from what I remember from those Gymnastije documentaries). I’m guessing she is moving back to be with her family. Interesting. Any idea, what gym?

  18. exgymgurl Says:

    WOW Yurchenko Fulls are now a 9.95 SV in NCAA
    Uneven bar routines without a major release skill also are now a max 9.95 SV…. excellent

    • gymtruthteller Says:

      Seems ridiculous to me to expect these gymnasts to train harder vaults on 20 hours a week

    • Exgymgurl Says:

      i think its just to give some advantage to landing a clean 1.5 or 2 yurchenko. This is rumored at this point but it wouldnt surprise me. It just puts more distance between the top 15 teams and the rest of the pack. Yurchenko half is rumored to be going down to a 9.9. Youll get coaches that collude not to throw harder vaults until season end.

  19. Cupquaked Says:

    Russia won gold in Turin this weekend with a score that would have placed them above the GB senior team in the qualifications at Worlds last year.

  20. exgymgurl Says: the beginning of the craptacular

  21. gymbot Says:

    American Classic Results are posted. No news brief yet summing up who made it, but by the stated rules, I think Polina Schennikova qualified by the skin of her teeth posting 41.3 (needing 41.250). She put up at 15 on bars but must of fell on beam.

    A large number of gymnasts posted above 51ish/53ish, so the Secret Classic will be huge.

  22. ilanchik20 Says:

    Word on the street is that Moors announced her retirement today during Canadian Nationals.

    • gymtruthteller Says:

      News on the street. Yep I heard that too. Not a big fan of her or her gymnastics but whatever makes he happy. She should at least go and do College gym but I never got the impression she was very smart in any form so who knows if she could even handle that.

      • Ilanchik20 Says:

        I just liked her floor lol and I’m glad we have a Moors and not a Skinner on floor haha

        I always thought she’d be going to UCLA since I’m sure I saw pics of her visit to UCLA somewhere plus she seems to be bff wit Ohashi. Maybe Miss Val ran out of scholarships haha.

    • Lithi Says:

      Moors put an announcement on her IG:

  23. exgymgurl Says:

    Thank god I know people who follow gabby’s mom on twitter do I don’t have to. Called the reality show. Go oxygen.

    • gymtruthteller Says:

      I am glad I don’t follow anyone in that family and with how obnoxious Gabby’s Aunt has been on twitter I expect this show to be a tragic disaster

    • ilanchik20 Says:

      Ugh. Gross.
      I can’t imagine Marta possibly being ok with this.

      Hopefully that’ll put her on Marta’s bad side and we won’t have to deal with her comeback at trials!

      • Exgymgurl Says:

        does oprah own oxygen still?

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        I wish Oprah would melt with water already and take her fat racist ass with her.

      • Exgymgurl Says:

        i hope it focuses on her brothers non existant track career. that would be hilarious.

      • sanitynmotion Says:

        I don’t plan on watching anyways. Bet it gets canceled first season.

      • TrishaG Says:

        What the crap is going on with Fatalie’s hair in that pic?? Is that an earring? Or a barrette? I don’t think it’s her ear, unless that’s a tragic Photoshop fail.

        Seriously…what is that????

      • Gymnast41 Says:

        Well now we know she has ruined basically 100% of any chance to go to rio lol

    • Case Says:

      I’m not too proud to say that I will be watching. Faithfully. What a hot mess.

  24. ilanchik20 Says:

    Pan Ams Squad Selection camp starts today.

    Gabby is not at camp–minor foot injury.

    • gymtruthteller Says:

      She probably doesn’t want to do such a meaningless meet either that or she is TLN (Training like Nastia)

      • Exgymgurl Says:

        id say shes training for reality tv

      • exgymgurl Says:

        I keep telling you guys that this pan ams squad is all part of the banishment of Brandie Jay and Bridgey Caquatto, that’s why Gabby wants to miss it. Its beneath her. I swear if marta doesn’t send any of Kyla Aly Simone bailie Key, we know the meet is for the purposes of total and complete Olympic banishment, Gabby was probably already told she was going and so she faked an injury to skip camp. I wonder who was on the provisional list? Anyone know?

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        Just got an e-mail that said Nastia put on twitter she was engaged. The real live devil spawn will be upon us. Run for your livesssssssss

  25. JAS4 Says:!/NastiaLiukin08/photos/a.347298773350.152865.30579513350/10153352614913351/?type=1
    I called it! Lol she gets engaged this year and that leaves just enough time to plan a wedding during the AA in Rio Lol

    • gymtruthteller Says:

      But if she plans a Wedding for during the AA who will come to her Wedding? 🙂

      • Sainabou Nyang Says:

        Lmao i saw the news and came here at once. You know ur gonna crash that wedding lol GTT

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        If it’s in Massachusetts I will so suit up and so crash

    • Exgymgurl Says:

      gag…. a lot

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        Who the hell gets engaged and puts it on facebook 26 minutes later. OMG I bet she wanted this done during DWTS but the guy with no legs beat her to it

      • Guest Says:

        I have thought she would announce this stuff during Rio next year. lol

    • Lithi Says:

      You mean as the ceremony actually happening in Rio, on the venue floor? I can totally see her trying to do that And all pink like the venue in London, natch.

      PS–rimshots during the vows.

      Officiant: Anastasia, do you take this man to be your lawful wedded husband, have and hold yada yada yada?

      Nastia: *gives bitchface to the groom, shrugs* Yeah, whatever.

      *ba-dum TISHHHHHHHHHHH!*

  26. Exgymgurl Says:

    GTT its part of how she teaches girls to shine.

    • gymtruthteller Says:

      lol Good luck to her. Marriage is the in thing for the Kartrashian types. Some of us are smarter than that. They haven’t even been dating a year right?

      • sanitynmotion Says:

        Feel sorry for the hubs. Who is he, by the way? I didn’t even know she was dating anyone.

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        I think we discussed it here on on facebook. He played College hockey at BC but never made it to the bigs

      • Exgymgurl Says:

        its already on her wikipeida. I think she got engaged yesterday….and just shined it to the world today

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        I better get a wedding invite. OMG What if she settles in Massachusetts and moves next door to me?

      • sanitynmotion Says:

        Must have been ignoring it on purpose. 🙂 All the hockey players I knew in College were…not the sharpest tool in the shed.

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        Brain freeze?

      • Case Says:

        Nastia moving next door to GTT would make this the best blog ever in history. Can you imagine?

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        No I cannot

  27. Diana (@dianajc99) Says:

    my moms reaction “with her personality he will probably be her first husband.”

  28. JAS4 Says:

    I am guessing bridesmaid dresses will be pepto pink. She will probably get married right before or after Rio lol. If she goes to Rio to commentate she might decide to have her wedding in Rio during the Olympics. She can have the Rio team be her bridesmaids right after they finish competing. Marta will be her matron of honor. There will be so much pepto pink everywhere that she may be the new face of peptobismal(sp?)

    • gymtruthteller Says:

      Stop talking and send me an email
      We are planning nastia’s wedding for a blog. This should be fun

    • Exgymgurl Says:

      im guessing the wedding will shine. She names it shine with Nastia and then writes it off as a promotional event for her new company

      • exgymgurl Says:

        Im honestly surprised daddy wogabucks didn’t have her in some pre arranged Russian thing like anna kournikova was… married to one guy and then living in his Miami penthouse with Sergei Federov

  29. 8spears8 Says:

    We all just need to accept that Lauren is kinda crazy. I’m not saying that to be mean, but she goes kinda boinkers every 3-4 months. She has problems with all of her coworkers, roommates, tumblr followers, etc., She can’t even break up with a guy like a normal adult. She has to screencap every single conversation with the guy where she plays like she’s going to meet up with him and then she goes “haha!!!” to “us” as if we think it’s so wonderful.

    She gets so offended by everything. I remember discussing with her the mckayla maroney nudes and she was just going off. I think gymnastike did the right thing, aside from their initial link to the nudes (that was awful and the followup with the president was awful) but they were right: they report on all gymnastic news. The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly. She claimed that Disney never did anything like that when their underage talent had “scandals”, And when I tried to explain to her that they absolutely did that with Vanessa Hudgen’s nudes andnJamie Lynn Spears’ pregnancy and then she went all like “well, gymnastics is different.” and then when I reminded of here of how al, tim and elfi literally made domo cry during a live interview about her parents in ’97, she was like “Oh, that’s different.”

    • gymtruthteller Says:

      Couldn’t care less about her issues because I don’t follow her on tumblr I just wish she would keep me out of her delusions.
