Your kids aren’t as cute as you think they are

May 31, 2019

Everyone these days is trying to make their kids a star by putting them on social media. I’m here to tell you your kids aren’t as cute as you think they are. Neither are your ugly, look alike nephews or your dog for that matter. That of course does not include, ex UCLA gymnast Jalynne Dantzscher’s army of mini me’s . They are actually cute enough for a youtube channel and have created one.

Here is a link because the video won’t embed.

Here is an interesting blog by The Balance Beam situation. Whomever decides who should get a skill named after them has been full of hypocrisy for years. Picking and choosing who should get a skill named after them for an extra half twist and who shouldn’t because the skill is allegedly already named after someone.

Elsa Garcia is making a comeback.

WordPress is having some issues lately allowing trolls to sneak in and I’m doing my best to take care of them before they have a chance to wreck havoc. If you see anything and it’s not taken care of e-mail me the_real_gymtruthteller@yahoo.com and give me a heads up.

And just to make sure another snowflake survives the comments above I wasn’t specifically talking about your look alike nephew or Shih Tzu. It is called a lead in

Laney Madsen says the Gymnastics community doesn’t support her because she’s a cheerleader.

Aliya out of European games.

Something to make Rocio happy. Look who’s out of Gymsberia πŸ™‚

Terin Humprey fired by USAG for bull shit reason

May 22, 2019

Screen Shot 2019-05-22 at 6.00.31 PM

First screen cap is by flo Gymnastics. Nothing on the website about this, yet. The reason she was fired was based on the below screen cap where she made a tongue in cheek comment about needing to be motivated sometimes to achieve her goals and the haters took it and ran with it.

People have been mad at Terin and by people I mean the asshole internet fanatics that think they should have a say in how USAG is run.

You know who you are and don’t even try and deny you have tried to manipulate the “gymternet” for years. These same people went as far as trying to get a gymnast thrown off a College gymnastics team a few years back. These same people made sure Marta was aware of a comment that was said on someone’s instagram because they didn’t like the fact she was religious. The comment didn’t matter to them they just wanted to make sure she wasn’t apart of the Olympic team.

Terin’s mother defends her on the Flo post multiple times but here is the comment I was sent.

Some people are mad Terin didn’t defend the gymnasts who were abused , instead talking about her time in gymnastics AND NOW YOU KNOW WHY SHE SAID NOTHING. It’s called common sense. If there was a trial she may have had to testify.

Terin seemed to do a decent job helping decide the Olympic team. Rumor is she is the one that lobbied for Alicia Sacramone over Mckayla Maroney back in 2012 which in all honesty made a lot of sense. Regardless, this firing was clearly a reaction by USAG because they are being over sensitive to what happened ON THEIR WATCH.

I’ll write more later, maybe. I need dinner and this isn’t working.

The Khorkina movie and Olympic Channel special , and Chinese Nationals (prelims, team finals/AA)

May 7, 2019

Prelims results are in the comment section. So are team finals and AA

Team Final
AA
Qualifying and Event finals qualifying

( Thanks Albert. I swear I read it on Boginskaya’s Instgram. ( UPDATE, I did. It’s in her story.)

Chinese Nationals podium training videos

Shang

Bars and beam

First the Olympic channel I guess is doing a series on Olympic Legends and the first episode features Svetlana Khorkina. LMAO at her attitude. Girl’s ego is hilarious. If you asked me what I remembered about Svetlana it would be her bad attitude, her unique bar routine and thinking Verona Van De Leur was robbed of one of the European titles Khorkina owns Oh and how she won’t call Simone Biles by name because she won 4 AA titles and passed Khorkina for that label.

( turns out it’s a 9 minute video and here it is

A Movie about Khorkina. This is awesome.

This movie doesn’t seem to talk about qualifying or AA or the team competition so the 1996 Olympics will start with the Uneven Bar Finals.

There aren’t any subtitles.
( I’ll leave the recap to Spanny if she even exists anymore) but I do have a few questions and screen caps to contrubute.

So which white girl is Dawes and which one is Chow ?

Fake Khorkina and real Khorkina duking it out in the same UB routine is fun

After Khorkina wins she is of course all smiles but….

Screen Shot 2019-03-01 at 6.07.57 PM

Later on she watches an old video tape of her performance with (I’m assuming) her mother ( who looks more like Khorkina than the gymnast playing her in this movie) 100.06

114.31 The vault debacle.

130.04 is the UB Finals ( I don’t remember Khorkina getting a hair cut during the Olympics at all) Ans they had cell phone’s on the floor at that Olympics????

I DON’T KNOW WHAT ELSE TO EVEN SAY πŸ™‚
