Camp, tour and more

There is a tour video on you tube that I can’t link right now and allegedly camp will start soon. Anything else ?

    Nassar is up to 20 complaints with the police starting in 1996 and going up to Septemeber 2015…gross

    • sanitynmotion Says:

      How in the world did USAG not know about these complaints and about his conduct? This makes me sad. It’s crazy how this sport seems to be such an attractant to pedophiles.

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        Penny needs to be fired. Someone’s head needs to roll. Too many accusations for this to be ignored

      • sanitynmotion Says:

        and meanwhile Marta is like “got out at JUST the right time…”

        I agree Penney needs to go. This can’t go un-ignored. It is pretty obvious USAG is trying to cover up their knowledge. There are sealed documents somewhere that they don’t want uncovered.

      • Gym Obsessed Says:

        Penny should be fired – I hope that Nassar is held responsible and pays for what he did and that those who allowed this to happen also pay. It’s unacceptable and really sad.

      • onelifeonejourneyonealex Says:

        Lol that phrasing makes it sound like you actually think USAG didn’t really know. I’d bet my life savings of $18.73 that SOMEONE knew the whole time and swept it under the rug. Probably lots of someones.

        Asac looks to have clowned herself.

        That lip though 😍

    Nastia is at the camp.

    • Uglyfatkid Says:

      Of course she is. Now that Daddy Valtrex is running the show we will never get rid of her. She’s the herpes of gymnastics. No matter how much you want it gone, it’s always right there waiting to flare up. #NastiaStillHasHerpes

    • Exgymgurl Says:

      She’s probably there to tell them how great dr NASCAR is. With terror Humphrey being ex law enforcement you’d think she’d be the obvious choice.

    • sanitynmotion Says:

      Just had this awful vision where Nastia will eventually replace her dad when he retires…
      Or it will be like how Bela started, then Marta had to take over after Bela started pissing everyone off. But Bela was still THERE.
      So like Valerie and Nastia will be running the shit show that is now known as USAG.

    Lauren Mitchell announces definitive retirement:

    No gabby again

      • Uglyfatkid Says:

        Did the creepo doctor also take care of the current batch of girls? If so, do think something happened with Gabby and that is why she isn’t there? She is suing USAG and the doctor? This could be the “big news / reason” that her mom is claiming why she didn’t perform well during the olympics (not that I put any stock in anything Natalie says).

        I hope it’s not that, but that could explain the sudden split with USAG. Just a crazy thought.

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        You sound like ex gym gurl .lol if anything she would add her name for attention

      • Gymbee Says:

        Yes he did – I remember he was in someone’s snapchat or keek or something, probably Maroney’a iirc.

    • gymtruthteller Says:

      She thinks she is Dawes. Doesn’t show up for team events cuz she doesn’t get all the credit for the win.

    • Ss Says:

      She got her wisdom teeth out.

      • gymnerd Says:

        From Gabby’s upcoming tell-all:

        “The girls BULLIED me! They EXCLUDED me!!! I had to pretend to be getting my wisdom teeth out so I wouldn’t have to travel with them! USAG wouldn’t do anything about it! Oh, and Dr. Nassar was mean to me too!”

  5. dianajc99 Says:

    Is Bailie Key done with elite? Or is she still recovering from whatever mysterious ailment kept her out of competition this summer? Hmmm. Happy to see Chow’s girls back though!

  7. gymmom2 Says:

    Pretty sure Bailie is done and focused on winning everything 10 this year.

  8. Gymnast41 Says:

    How convenient for Gabby not to be able to meet the president because of a wisdom teeth surgery lol

    • G Says:

      The entire Fierce Five met Obama after London right? Maybe she was like “Been there, done that.” lol

      • Ss Says:

        I’m going to give her the benefit of the doubt here. Im guessing she wants the money from doing the tour and since this is their longest “break” she scheduled it during this time so she’d miss less. Also, with the weird mouth issues she has had maybe she didn’t have much of a choice.

      • sanitynmotion Says:

        Well, mouth issues are no fun. I’ve had my share of mine…like 10 oral surgeries no joke. So…there’s that.

        And I guess since our Pres is just a “lame duck” this year she feels why bother. Maybe if it were a meet and greet with Hillary or Trump (how interesting).

      • Guest Says:

        I believe the absence of Gabby in the recent several public events is not the coincidences. I think she had bad time when hanging together with Final Four.

      • gymnerd Says:

        I kind of wonder the same thing, Guest.

  9. Exgymgurl Says:

    I think Gabby isn’t getting paid what she thinks she worth by USAG and has fulfilled her commitments to them. I think her Leo line will be dropped and you will see a Laurie Leo line at GK. She is under no obligation to show up to red carpet events, but missing out on the Obamas is something else entirely. I think she’s embarrassed and some of the sponsors bought her repeat AA medalist statements and she didn’t get as much $$ as she wanted to because her endorsements were probably tied to multiple medals. I’m not going to speak to the Nasser thing just I don’t like liukin in charge, forcing his own athletes to compete at camp through diarrhea is not what ai want to see from our national team coordinator.

  10. G Says:

    Bailie just officially announced she’s going to Alabama. I’m happy for her.
    I wonder when she’ll start?

  11. Exgymgurl Says:

    Yup…. And Peyton is probably following her and then baumann will go somewhere else

  12. Ilanchik20 Says:

    It’s official: Bailie goes to Bama

  13. Exgymgurl Says:

    Good, Kyla’s found a vault that works with her height. And doesn’t twist for her back. Is this a variant on a podkapaeva ?and it’s a 10.0 right?

  14. Aerial Says:

    Major shade at Florida and major public praise for Bama. Can’t just be the decision to release her continuously broken and requiring surgery bestie. What the heck is going on at Florida?? I’m surprised Key wasn’t treated like the star recruit she was. Whether on a break or level 10 or elite, she’s a much more sure bet than other more fragile and lower-ranked elites who are frequently broken.

  15. Lithi Says:

    A poster at WWGYM put together a partial list of folks who have liked and/or left supportive messages for Nassar on his FB page since 16 September.

    Nastia Liukin
    Carly Patterson
    Mary Lou Retton
    Mary Lee Tracy

    Relatives of Ernst and Geddert


    • G Says:

      Geez. I don’t know what these people are thinking. I mean, I get the inward struggle that must go with having someone you know and trusted outed in this way. I understand that it would be initially really difficult to think the allegations are true when you have known someone so long and haven’t had any issues. BUT, 26 accusers…you can’t deny that. If they really wanted to “show support” or whatever, they should have done it privately because it makes them look so bad to be publicly saying that they think these 26 girls are lying. I would be so pissed if I were one of the victims.

      • Lithi Says:

        Exactly. If I was in Valeri’s position I would be furious with Nastia. He’s the new face of US gymnastics with all this crap hanging over it and his kid voices support for a guy who is further dragging it into the gutter with 26 (so far) accusations of molestation.

        Yes, Nastia is a grown woman and can have her own opinion but with her being more recognizable than Valeri and with her statement of support some people are going to be like “Well, Nastia’s ok with this perv, guess her dad is too.” This will do him no favors. If Nastia wants to be part of the scene she will need to keep it cute and put it on mute.

      • Gym Obsessed Says:

        Gross. That does make them look bad and truly makes me question them.

    • Rocío Martínez López Says:

      Semenova and Racea got married yesterday and today and Racea is pregnant.

    • gymtruthteller Says:

      It’s their opinion they can support you they like. They can also deal with the consequences ahen they are called out . I not sure why a gymnastics board feels the need to try and start world war 3 over this tho because that is all that list will do. There are all kinds of witch hunts that happen in this world so until the courts figure it out and the truth comes out I not sure what we can or should do about it .

  16. Exgymgurl Says:

    Kyla and Kocian will be the first Olympic gold medalists to compete NCAA. Ever.

    • sanitynmotion Says:

      Silly question, but why did Kocian go to college right away? Guess she wasn’t planning on sticking with elite after the Olympics?

      Locklear is though, right? I guess this will give Locklear the opportunity to be the bar specialist, but don’t know if she can hold out for 4 years to make the next Olympic team.

      • Mim Says:

        Kocian is 19, got to the level she wanted, is injury prone and apparently super academic. I would have done exactly the same thing (go off to college) rather than put my body through a year or two more than elite. Had she not made the Olympics I think she would have done a Maggie and gone off to college right away. Ashton said she didn’t want to compete NCAA for whatever reason, I have a feeling like she said competing so often in college would take more of a toll on her body than training as an elite specialise.

      • Mim Says:


      • Exgymgurl Says:

        Kocian wants to be a pediatrician. UCLA is known for finding grad school scholarships for its marquis athletes as a prestige thing, she might be doing a six year program or something, but she’s very very school minded like Kyla was.

      • Ilanchik20 Says:

        She also was a senior elite for 4 years –has 3 works gold medals and 2 Olympic medals so she never planned on postponing. Plus with Valery bring the new NT, it would be only a matter time before he broke her shoulders or whatever else. Honestly, she is lucky she never trained with him, given how injury-prone she is. I’m excited to see her and Kyla at NCAA.

        Plus I love Locklear–I need to see her beautiful bars some more.

    No Not john john

    Time 2 retire

  19. Rocío Martínez López Says:

    Roxana Popa has been operated of her right knee. So far, the surgery has been successful.

    • Gymbot Says:

      Hats great. Does she plan to continue elite/international?

      • Rocío Martínez López Says:

        As far as I know, yes. The Spanish Gymnastic Federation is counting on her, but she has had very bad luck with her injuries the last couple of years. She has had very serious problems with her elbow and both knees, so I don’t know if her body will hold up. But if she remains healthy, she would try for Tokyo for sure.

  20. Mim Says:

    I miss gymnastics. When does the tour end, I feel like it’s been dragging on forever (just based on the snapchats I have seen).

    • Lauren H Says:

      The tour lasts until right before Thanksgiving. Agreed, the tour is never ending.

      • Ilanchik20 Says:

        The tour is long. But amazingly it doesn’t have a stop in Atlanta. The closest is like 1.5 hours away from Atlanta. What’s that about? I thought of going but there is no way I’m driving that far for it lol.

      • Gymnast41 Says:

        Right? Like one of the main reasons why I’m not going is that there isn’t one in Atl. A shame cause they’d make a ton of money lol

      • Exgymgurl Says:

        They are missing a lot of major cities this year. It’s almost like their venue booker did a horrible job because this tour is much shorter than 2012. They also had the switching Minneapolis / and some other date last weekend. No one does that. The tour hardware and logistics and production value also seems like they copied 2012 but made it with fewer background dancers and more family friendly. There are a lot fewer people on tour this year.

  21. Rocío Martínez López Says:

    Musty says she is going to take a year off gymnastics, at least: The break is not surprising. What surprises me is that she isn’t retiring just yet. I thought that was the plan, considering her injuries. Maybe Russian Federation, knowing how much they depend on her, have talked her into not retairing for good for the time being and see what happens with the juniors, Komova, Melnikova and Seda in the beginning of this quad.

  22. Cupquaked Says:

    New FIG and new WTC presidents. So no more Nellie Kim, right????

  23. Exgymgurl Says:

    Nellie Kim was put on the executive committee that rules the technical directors. Some Italian lady is head of the WAG tech committee.
