LIVE Blogging the US Classic Juniors

Junior’s will be live on youtube tomorrow. IF I am awake I will live blog.

Results and Start lists



So basically lots of this was a waste of time. Wish I had known name juniors were competing with the seniors.

So go watch Lillian on youtube videos and Grace on vault and maybe Jafree on floor (even with the score)

This should be fun. No commentators.


We should get some names now because they all seem to be competing one event.

Audrey David messed up her double wolf and a sloppy last pass but rest was solid. Though her leaps are blah. She’s the anti Woga in dance or anti Woga on how they are perceived. 11.950 takes her out of the lead. Then Eaker took the best score on beam from her.

Poor little girl just fell on her beam dismount and her coach temper tantrumed to the back of the

Didn’t see it but Grace McCallum got a huge vault score. 14.650

Seems vault scores are deciding AA’s again… Took the AA from Eaker. Gave the AA to Grace. Brought up Jay Jay who had scores in the rankings of 21st, 15th and 8th on every other event.

Lillian nailed bars. Nailed the landing. Clean though she does have flat feet but I don’t care. She’s the only gymnast I have enjoyed watching today.

Maeve Hahn attempted Afan’s double turn but she was a little short.

Wong is no Kyla on beam either but she reminds me of her on floor and vault. Lots of bobbles and hands on the beam to stop from falling.

I kind of like Sienna Brown on floor. She’s cute and has potential.

I think the juniors are competing as seniors tonight. Yep they just said that.



There are literally 9 million juniors.

OMG Look at that face. You look like my new mistake….. If the high was worth the pain. Got a long list of ex lovers…..

Al Fong just literally walked up to Eaker on bars and talked to her.

Saw Wong on bars. She doesn’t look like Kyla at all there.

Come on Tienna. you have to hit one event today.. (They didn’t show her bars)

I think they raised Jones floor score. Could have sworn it said 12 something. It’s now 13.350

Jay Jay Marshall attempted some hard tumbling but it was poorly done. She has a double layout as her third pass and I am pretty sure that was a Dos santos 2 as her second. Full out in laid out position was her first pass but it was very piked. She also put her hands down. She got a 12.900 with a fall so that would have easily been the best score on floor of the night.

Jana Bieger is judging beam.

This feed is doing it’s best to skip Zmeskal’s gymnasts.

The when they do show Annie Beard it’s Kim Zmeskal and her choosing crappy music again. the bad news bears? This kid has so much potential and she deserves better. Kim loves to use her type of music so people will think of her shit floor routines. These kids deserve better music.

Lets dance. Lets shout… The back ground music is killing it today. Well mostly:)

The yellow and black leo girl just had huge air on her Pak Solto..

Lillian Lippeatt the future star even got shown on vault.

Way too many Woga gymnasts being seen on this feed.

Smirnov has nice presentation on floor.

They showed Jafree Scott on bars. She only got a 13.000 but she had her leg together for the most part.




Smirnov off beam , twice.

Gymnasty is a horrible name for a club.

Kyla Ross just went on vault. Another event Wong reminds me of Kyla tho without Kyla’s killer landings.

Dear Lauren Little, Point your toes kid.

I take back liking the leo. Well you still have the best name, Tienna. She fell twice on beam so the video guy decided she wasn’t worth watching any more and they cut to a Hill’s gymnast on floor. I would rather watch Tienna on beam.

Screen goes black. Thanks God.

This is the worst the feed has been in a long time.

Nice tumbling by Jones on floor but any gym that refuses to try and teach these girls dance shouldn’t be allowed on the floor.

Whomever just did bars had nice handstands but swung the bars really slow but the hand stands were awesome.


The fact that USAG still sends Nastia to events to attract viewers tells you how stupid they are. The one time I went there was lucky if there was 100 people and she gave everyone dirty looks. They can’t be so naive to think she is a good example of the sport? Sorry but they advertised some event she and the male choker Sam are doing….

Annie Beard was solid on beam. The clown leo’s belong to Zmeskal of course. Lots of form issues..

The little girl with bucket on her face is more watchable then this floor routine.

YAY. Lillian Lippeatt ( count how many times I misspell her name) is my new favorite to watch. Nailed her tumbling. Nailed her turns and leaps. She’s cute as a button and will improve the presentation .



Okay Smirnov had a crappy ending but such pretty handstands.

The Liukin influence on floor music is evident.

I think I liked Jafree Scott on floor. Sloppy landings and horrible music but she has some dance training. I see her owning college gym in a few years. ( I also don’t mean this as an insult. I mean Bridget Sloan like own)

Hills gymnasts with bad form on beam> Check.

Kaitlyn Johnson just Gabby Douglas’d her floor routine. Literally walked through it with no dance or rhythm.

I woke up at 11, did 2 loads of laundry and made popcorn all before 2.5. wHO’S SHOCKED? who’s proud of me? Who’s listening? No one of course. Why you people ask for live blogging and don’t show

Leanne Wong reminds me so much of Kyla on floor. Stop to rest wave your arms with flow.

Kim Zmeskal’s gymnasts are anti her as a gymnast. Well Barrios here reminds me of her. Form issues. Bent knee’s and a fall. I get Hernando Hideaway music in the back ground so that’s good. NEVER MIND. That was a Hills gymnast and now it all makes I don’t know who the gymnast was because they said one thing and put up a different name and now my screen has gone blank.

Now its back with 4 screens I can’t see anyone good enough.

Hands down for Konnor at the end but she is quite the little tumbler.

Dear Wolf turns, DIE, Love, Jenn

Tienna wins best name and best leotard but I am trying not to be critical because these are juniors.

I am going to skip this girl on beam for the same reason above.

I better see some Lillian Lippett here USAG.

I like the name Addison. I know someone else likes that name too 🙂

    Thanks! Can’t wait.

    If I had much respect for Maggie Haney in the first place, I would have lost it all for her after seeing Riley Mckusker in podium training. She could have injured herself seriously on beam, she’s clearly not ready to be competing it. In Riley’s interview, she eve stated SHE IS NOT READY. Why is Maggie letting her compete like this? She’s an idiot.

    • ilanchik20 Says:

      Lauren said Riley is doing bars, beam and floor. Maggie is literally putting her gymnast in danger. She needs a new coach and Valery should step in.

      I listened to Rileys interview and it made me feel bad for her.

  3. gymbot Says:

    Konnor McKlain could be a clone of Flavia Saraiva, down to the beam mount.

  4. Sainabou Nyang Says:

    I only saw like two juniors with beautiful toe point and nice extension on their leaps. The rest was just sloppy and bad technique.

    I like Leanne wong and no surprise Shes a gage gymnast. Someone commented on u tune that she reminds them of Kyla.

    • gymtruthteller Says:

      She reminded me of Kyla on only 2 events. She is also a poor man’s Kyla at least as a junior before her form became suspect but just the way she carried herself on those 2 events she reminded me of Kyla.

  5. Cupquaked Says:

    Wasn’t super interested in this subdivision of juniors. I know it’s just classics but so many falls. Didn’t the junior level used to mean easier routines but good execution? I don’t remember seeing so many girls attempting senior level skills. Have coaches forgotten about pacing and peaking?

  6. gymbot Says:

    GTT, I hope the wolf turns die too. But there is also this new trend on beam, jumps with 1/2 from cross stand in the beam that are done horribly. I hope they’re not here to stay.

  7. Mim Says:

    I wasn’t waking at 4am to watch juniors! Enjoyed reading your take on it though. I hope these kids are being paced properly. A lot aren’t even 2020 eligible.

  8. greytealbluemom Says:

    OMG this meet coverage was so bad I actually fell asleep trying to watch it twice. I think it would be a great cure for insomnia….

    • gymtruthteller Says:

      Gymgurl, This might be why you have trouble posting sometimes.

    • gymtruthteller Says:

      You have a completely different IP address here with a new name but same e-mail. This is why wordpress gets confused by you so
