Did you know????

Did you know?????

Julianne Mcnamara’s daughter plays 15 year old Kate on This is us? I didn’t even realize they had a teenage Kate ( I was bored and disengaged))

Simone has a boyfriend? ( well she’s dating) Glad to see she is living life and don’t ask me why this showed up on my yahoo feed.

Aly is joining the Navy? She’s not really ( as far as I know) but her outfit says she could be:) By the way if you watch could Gabby look any more awkward in this video? First I must say I actually love her dress. I think it’s the first thing I have ever seen on a gymnast I can say I would actually wear. Well know that isn’t true, Kyla’s dress from the ESPY’s in 2012 was cute too. Gabby just looks like she doesn’t want to be there. She looked the same at the ESPY’s, miserable. ( I also liked that dress)

USA-Gymnastics released some camp news ( has hell frozen over?)

Senior winners

1. Ragan Smith, Texas Dreams
2. Alyona Shchennikova, 5280
3. Jordan Chiles, Naydenov

Junior camp winners

1. Maile O’Keefe
2. Emma Malabuyo,
3. Adeline Kenlin, (Iowa Gym-Nest)

Riley is injured according to the Triple Twist wins.

Lilly Lippeat, Cincinnati Gymnastics; Konner McClain, Revolution Gymnastics; and Anya Pilgrim/Hill’s were the top 3 from the physical abilities.

Simone and her ESPY’s and is this show not a complete joke? Aaron Rodgers for best NFL player and best play over the Superbowl saving catch by Amendola?

” But, if it’s not broken, then you don’t need to fix it. I think Brett McClure is still smoking the weed he and Jaycie Phelps were on during their entire relationship. If he thinks there is nothing wrong with the men’s team in the US he is a complete fucking idiot that should be fired already.

    the mens team. now there,s a group of people who need a team of sports psychologists.

    • gymnerd Says:

      Or a few months with Marta.

    • Sainabou Nyang Says:

      The whole mens team program needs an overhaul from top to bottom. No more chances if u keep fucking up in competitions throwing away medals.

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        I missed you. You don’t come around enough.:)

      • Sainabou Nyang Says:

        Lol I still come read your blog. But I do miss commenting on gymnastics. Gymnastics has been so blah this year.

  2. Ilanchik20 Says:

    ESPY’S were stupid as always. Laurie needs a stylist. I have no idea what the F she was wearing? She is 16, come on.

    This is Us is pretty good. I didn’t realize that was her daughter–and I’ve seen the entire season. I just watch it for Milo (who plays Jack) lol. Wasn’t McNamara into acting when she was young too?

    Riley is hurt. Ask me why I’m not surprised.

    • G Says:

      I watch This is Us for the same reason lol but it is a good show regardless. I’m still catching up because I got too busy to watch while it was airing.

      Riley def looked like she could break easily so yeah, not surprised either.

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        Did you figure out who the person making the comments was in the blog about Wofford or do I still need to explain?

      • G Says:

        No I didn’t figure out the exact person but guessed it was someone who knew her well. I didn’t read super closely

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        What the hell I always said I would keep insiders private but I never promised her that. It was her mother and she posted under two different names defending herself which was funny but she isn’t the only one who didn’t understand how IP numbers worked.lol

      • G Says:

        lol I thought it might be her dad. For some reason I pictured a guy writing.

      • Gymbee Says:

        Wow – her mother! The one who said “it’s not like she was on deaths door”?!

    • gymtruthteller Says:

      Laurie needs glasses. For her to even think that dress was cute means she either wants attention by dressing like an idiot or she is blind. I didn’t love Aly’s sailor dress ( I mean what was the strawberry for) but it at least wasn’t horrid (It would have been cute without the strawberry) I guess we should be happy overall they dress better lately than the 08 crew

    • gymtruthteller Says:

      I will never understand the Milo love. He’s gross and when he played Jesse I HATED HIM but the few episodes I saw of this show he did a pretty good job acting ( the scenes with the kids. The younger kids. I have never seen an episode where the kids were older) Rory was a whore.lol

      • Ilanchik20 Says:

        I love Milo. I love Jess on GG. But Rory has always been a hot mess.

        Milo got an Emmy nomination for This is Us. So has Alexis for Handsmaids Tale.

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        Alexis was never that great an actor but the Emmy nods this year are kind of bad. I mean they gave Keri Russell a nod and she literally can’t act. Never could. Milo does a decent job on This Is Us but he was horrible on the Gilmore girls. All he did was scream and call it acting but I will admit he has gotten a lot better

      • Ilanchik20 Says:

        You are right. Emmys r ridiculous this year but when aren’t they?

        Another Emmy nomination for Robin Wright. I literally can’t stand her acting. Plus no Emmy for Kerry Washington. No to mention, I wanted Lauren Graham to get one. Hopefully Viola wins.

        Plus, how many nominations does House of Cards need? It’s getting old lol.

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        Viola is an amazing actress tho I don’t watch her show but every movie I have ever seen her in she was amazing. Not a big Washington fan but the Emmy’s need to go. What a waste of an award show.

        I loved stranger things and am so thrilled the sheriff guy got a nod because I thought he was great but as good of a job as the little girl did the 4 little boys were just as amazing and it’s not fair she gets the nomination when all 4 were just as good.

      • dianajc99 Says:

        I was bummed the only love for Sherlock was Benedict. Martin,Mark and Sian were great too.

  3. Gymbee Says:

    Oh wow Gabby looks miserable. Wow.

    • gymnerd Says:

      Are you talking about the YouTube video? She looks pissed. She ought to be glad anyone still WANTS to take her picture.

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        She looked uncomfortable to me. I bet we see her in how I got over my anxiety issue commercials in the near future.

      • Gymbee Says:

        Part of me is still wondering when we are going to find out why she acted the way she did during Rio. Remember her mom saying something like “when this gets out you’ll understand why she acted like this!” – it can’t have been her wisdom tooth?

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        It was called an excuse. There was no reason.

      • Gymbee Says:

        Oh yeah I know, I’m just wondering if it was tied up to a new PR thing, as in she’ll come out as the “face of” whatever inflicted her when they need some new attention on her.

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        Oh that is exactly what I meant lol

      • Gymbee Says:

        Haha they already tried the bullying, but that wasn’t more than a week of attention tops.

      • hobarttdavid Says:

        We all have to learn how to deal with anxiety.

  4. Mim Says:

    Nabs is coming back y’all:

    http://eng.gymnovosti.com/nabieva-plans-to-return-to-competition-in-december/

    • JAS4 Says:

      I’m guessing that with no Mustafina that Valentina will be pushing her to be ready for Worlds

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        If they are counting on Nabs they are desperate

      • JAS4 Says:

        Valentina is probably getting very desperate! 😂 Romania probably is too! Next thing you know Romania will be begging Amanar, Raducan, etc…. to come back!

      • Gymbot Says:

        Good luck to Nabs. So Melnikova for the AA and then they can choose between Komova, Eremia, Kapitinova and Spiridonova for bars. Maybe Afan will do floor and Paseka will vault, or they can 2/4 bars specialists

      • Ilanchik20 Says:

        Adan had a baby yesterday–she is not going to Worlds lol. Vika said she doesn’t plan to return until next year.

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        what did she have

      • Gymbot Says:

        So even slimmer pickings? Maybe this is Iordaches year, all the medals

      • imperatorcarolus Says:

        They have Paseka for vault and Spiri for bars if they want. Seda is in Gymsberia, but I haven’t seen anything saying she is injuried, so she is elegible. I think they would send Eremina and Melnikova as AAers and then pick specialists, Paseka being probably one of them. as Spiri is probably vanished in Gymsberia. The problem is that their specialists are one-event only, so they can’t even do two or three properly for a team final, but it is a problem for future Worlds. This year is only individual competition, so they can send just two AAers and use Paseka and Spiri as specialists or take Shelgunova or Skypnik as new girl for experience. In any case, Komova seems on the mend and Kharenkova and Alla too. Then they have Kapitonova, Shelgunova and Skrypnik, who are not ideal options, but if they are in a problem, can do a decent work. So they have options if they fix their problems with consistency. The problem will come when they need a team, because they have problems to have high scores on some apparatus, specially floor. But for this year, they are somewhat good.

      • Gymbot Says:

        Alla Sosnitskaya is still on the Russian team? Where has she been?

      • imperatorcarolus Says:

        Alla has been injuried for the longest time, but competed at the last Russian Cup, at least on vault and floor (not huge scores, but she was on the mend): https://thegymter.net/2017/03/01/2017-russian-championships-results/. Ilanchik20 have said in another commentary that she is off to Georgia, so I don’t know what to think anymore. Russia does let those gymnasts that they felt doesn’t have any chance in their teams go, specially if they go to late Soviet Republics, so in itself isn’t super strange, but Alla showed real talent for the AA, something that Russia is lacking nowadays, so I though they would try to bring her back to form. I am surprised by the Georgia thing.

    • imperatorcarolus Says:

      Nabs again! Yay! If Valentina takes Nabieva to the Worlds after all the shit she has said about her, I am going to enjoy them more than I thought I would. Russia is in some shit, but not in the same way as Romania. Russia still has gymnasts with good difficulty and chances in some apparatuses. They have serious consistency issues, but they have several girls with potential, like Eremina o Melnikova, and Komova and Kharenkova are on the mend. Romania’s problems are different. The day Lari and Cata retire, they are dead, as the younger ones doesn’t even have scores significative enough to even dream to reach a final. In fact, in the Europeans, if there wasn’t for the two per country rule, they wouldn’t have been in the AA final, and that means that, without Lari, they won’t even smell it at Worlds. Russia is not yet at that level of disaster, but they have to implement some changes to avoid it in the future. With Nabs, maybe what Valentina is seeking is consistency and experience for the team, but the fact that she is training doesn’t mean that she has chances to be at Worlds (but that would be soooo cool).

  5. gymnerd Says:

    Gracie’s looking a little…fuller.

    http://www.nbcolympics.com/news/gracie-gold-unveils-olympic-season-programs

    • gymtruthteller Says:

      If that picture is new she didn’t lose any weight. In fact she got bigger.

      • Ss Says:

        After a 10 year battle with eating disorders I rarely comment on the weight of others, but I have yet to see a single recent photo where she looks even remotely close to competition form. These photos were taken only 2-3 months ago. Her history of crash dieting is terrible for her performance. I have no confidence she will make this team. She either isn’t giving training 100% or she’s self sabatoging with her diet. I would love to see her come back with some joy in her skating but if she’s not happy she should retire.

  6. Cupquaked Says:

    Love Nabs. I hope she competes and sticks it to Valentina for being such a bitch.

    Also gym news is SO slow right now. Is there anything going on?? I know it’s the year after the Olympics but I’m so bored.

  7. G Says:

    Classics roster is out. No Flatley but I expected that after her being absent from camp, I really don’t think we’ll ever see her compete elite again as she’s had such bad luck with injuries. Everyone else expected is there. I’m excited to see Laney Madsen finally and Morgan Hurd and Deanne Sosa as seniors.

    • Mim Says:

      Norah will just peace out to college I think.

      • ilanchik20 Says:

        I’m upset that Norah isn’t there but I don’t know why I even bother. She’ll fit in well at UCLA right with all the injured elites.

        Who are all these gymnasts on the Classics roster? I feel like I know 6 of them.

  8. gymnerd Says:

    Can someone please tell me how to pronounce “Malabuyo”?

  9. dianajc99 Says:

    So GK bought Dreamlights..

  10. imperatorcarolus Says:

    Canada has announced its team for Worlds: Ellie Black, Brooklyn Moors, Shallon Olsen; Isabella Onyshko (Brittany Rogers as reserve). Someone else thinks that Ellie Black has some opportunities to reach the podium this year?

    • Ilanchik20 Says:

      I think depending how Ellie looks this year, she prob has a chance in AA and vault. Her beam is also good when she hits. USA isn’t as strong at the moment (with Regan being their top AA’er). It’s a possibility.

      Olson will prob make vault finals.
      Moors may make Floor. Since it’s individual finals, they r pretty good team.

      I’m a bit shocked Britt didn’t make but I think it’s because her events better covered by others. She is S gymnsst you take for a team Worlds.

  11. Ilanchik20 Says:

    Norah just announced that she is leaving elite, will do her last year as level 10 next year and then head to UCLA. Great. She is one of the few gymnasts I liked.

    • gymtruthteller Says:

      I never liked her (never got the hype) but I respect potential and its sad when it doesn’t work out.

    • G Says:

      Yeah I’m sad too but I suppose the writing was on the wall. It does suck since I’ve been following her for so long! I like her teammate Victoria too so maybe she’ll fill the Chow gymnast void.

      • Ilanchik20 Says:

        I really liked her. I think she had great technique and that beam. She was like mini Shawn but with better lines. It’s too bad we never saw her as a senior. But hey, she is going to UCLA–she’ll fit right in.
