“BREAKING NEWS” Mckayla Maroney retires

February 25, 2016


Quotation marks are sarcasm but I do have to laugh at all these people surprised she isn’t competing anymore.Every 4 year fans don’t realize she hasn’t been around in 2 years.


Okay so I have no clue what she said because if I don’t have time to sit through The Skating Lesson’s interview with Michelle Kwan at this time I won’t be sitting through this one.

Kyla Ross retires :(

February 23, 2016



Kyla Ross officially retires.

USA Today article  With quotes from Marta the killer of dreams.

Gymnastike Tribute


I have to admit this is a tough one for me. If you read this blog at all you know how much of a liker of everything Kyla Ross I am. From her genuine personality to her knack for proving everyone wrong, Kyla being around this sport has made it  easier  to watch and that isn’t a bad legacy to leave behind.

Can’t say I am not very disappointed she isn’t going to stick around and try and prove everyone wrong but I’ll always appreciate Kyla for her never give up attitude, clean form and ability to make me smile.

Good luck at UCLA , Kyla you might make a Ms Val fan out of me yet:)


And for anyone that cares Jon Horton is injured and out too. He will be back next year



Message to Kyla from Simone

Screen cap from twitter (Thanks lol) from Shannon to Kyla

Qualification Results

Mikulak wins Winter cup


I don’t know about you people but I could see Flavia getting the gold medal on beam at the next Olympics if she hits this routine in her home Country. I really don’t see the judges letting Simone win 3 of 4 event final gold medals at the Olympics. Not a big fan of the floor tho I am sure all the fans that love the cute little gymnasts will fondly remember the Moceanu temper tantrum routine of the 96 Olympics but homey don’t play that here.

Get well soon Beth Tweddle-Updated

Beth is walking with help from a nurse. Thank god. Great news. On her way to recovery.




Beth hurt herself training for what looks like a TV show. Her parents put a note on her twitter you can read here. Get well Beth


Kim Zmeskal turned 40. Is that even possible? Sometimes my hatred of Kim from my days as a young gym fan changes but don’t worry, It’s only temporary 🙂 Plus a Betty Okino sighting


Chelle Stack Interview

Tonight ex World Champion Kayla Williams fiance. Kevin Norwood will be playing in the superbowl. Okay playing is a stretch he’s only played one game this year but at least he isn’t a Bronco so, Go Panthers!!!!!! Hey technically he was part of Seattle when they lost last year ( sorry not sorry)
