And Larisa Iordache showing real potential which means real live comebacks do exist Thanks Rocio

Oh and those who don’t know Sierra Sapunar was a gymnast. She lives the life all of us want in Vegas. She looks like a super model so it’s easy for her to follow her advice where us mere mortals understand that being happy is like finding a a freaking Leprechaun or watching a youtube video without 2 freaking commercials.

This attitude and dialect was brought to you from me, GTT, because I have spent the last few weeks watching Seth and Summer videos (from the OC) (awwwwwwww) WAITING FOR BASEBALL TO START.

And Michelle Kwan turned 40. As in ten years away from a half a Century. WTF?

I wanna be happy about something

July 3, 2020

Dear, Abby..
It’s G.T.T…AKA, Jenn… I don’t remember how to format a letter. I think we were taught it in school but haven’t been there in a looooooong time. The only thing I remember about writing a letter is you are supposed to indent. I think. Like I said it’s been awhile.. Soooo….

I wanna be happy about something. Obsessing over the past has been a recent personal issue of mine and the last time you readers showed up in droves was when I sounded like a teenager sick of life so I thought I would do it again:)

So here we go.. The last time I was happy about something.. Truly happy. The gymnastics edition.. The Olympic trials…..

Go…..

So I was trying to come up with the last time I was truly excited about watching Gymnastics. Like the last moment that made me smile when seeing a result of a gymnastics competition. The Olympic trials edition..

To be honest, it was when Gabby choked trials but they still put her on the team so I couldn’t use that….. Then there was Nastia choking trials.. That was fun but it’s Nastia so, NO…. So the very last time I was truly freaking ecstatic about an Olympic trials results was waaaaaaaay back in 2008. I know right? The year of the WORST OLYMPICS EVER! How could anything be positive about that, right?

Well, before she sold those of us out that tried to petition her onto an Olympic team. Before she decided to bring back her nickname of, Chellsie ******* Memmel she was just “titled” always injured at the worst possible time, Chellsie Memmel… And she was BAMBF!!!! (Not a word but it’s 2.30 AM and I’m trying to, “positive reminisce” so…)

I feel like this is my ‘go to” moment when I need blog idea’s that don’t need thinking…

Day 2
(Vault)(Bars)(Beam)
Day 1
(Vault) (Bars) (Beam) (Floor)
P.s.If I messed these up go to youtube and find them yourself ..

And the best Olympic Trials moment ever!!!! The night Chellsie “*******” Memmel kicked ass and ruined Marta’s fuckery, forcing her to stand up and give a standing Ovation to the gymnast she never wanted on the team in the first place… Boo ya! At least you had that moment Memmel. Damn those injuries..

Back to personal regrets, over thinking and wondering what the hell I am doing up at 3 am, blogging.

Am I the only one who doesn’t like Gymnastics or any gymnast anymore?

June 19, 2020

Honestly, I thought I loved Sunisa Lee but even she is annoying now. Remember that Instagram, I created to write the blog about what I learned from gymnasts on Instagram ? Well, I un-followed every gymnast on it. Then I lost the password. The only person I miss seeing is Sloane Sacramone-Quinn. Alicia’s little mini me. I wonder what trouble she is getting into at this very moment. Tho I hope she’s sleeping. It’s like 2 AM…

Back in the day, I was one of the few people who liked Svetlana Boginskaya because she had some spirit. Sure some people call it being bitchy but at least she wasn’t a self, centered phony like every damn College gymnast, Demanding the world do things or they’re gonna shame them on social media. My God, you’re not that important.

Someone sent me a, hate e-mail not that long ago about how this blog was now irrelevant and my reply to them was, OH NO! NOT THAT! Unlike the messed up rest of the gymternet my self worth isn’t measured on, nameless, faceless, people who’s entire lives are…

I HATE having to think of idea’s to blog. It’s draining and even when I do come up with an idea my buddy Rocio is the only one that shows up anyway. Life is too exhausting as it is in realty to deal with anything that doesn’t make me money.
Or smile.

If you haven’t guessed I’m in a mood. I can’t even blame my ovaries anymore. Damn, built in excuse.

I miss my babies who I haven’t seen in months thanks to this stupid, virus. I miss going to a certain bar where someone I used to know, hangs out. That’s always fun.

Skinner’s husband is adorable. He’s also a saint for putting up with her. Watch Mykayla be judgemental..

Part 1

Anyone motivated that has any idea’s for a blog, hit me up. I also miss the hate mail I used to get in droves. GYMTRUTHTELLER@GMAIL.COM That last hate mail I received was so boring. I mean the trolls don’t even have any originality anymore.

RIP Kurt Thomas

He’s one of the first gymnasts I remember watching on Television..

Larisa is back in the Gym (Thanks Rocio)

Happy Birthday, Aly Raisman

May 25, 2020

Watch the 2012 floor finals to celebrate Aly’s B-day. She’s 26 today..
Happy Memorial day to those who served.

I had forgotten Lauren Mitchell was in this final. Best part, NO, NBC for commentating. Shannon Miller and the British guy:)

Okay so I wrote an entire blog bitching about the results and Jordyn Wieber’s resting bitch face the entire finals and then erased it because I remembered this was a blog celebrating Aly’s Bithday.
So Happy Birthday, Aly.

I just saw Ferrari’s bitch face and now I am really going to have to write a blog about this finals.lol

New-ish training videos from Suni, Riley by Gymnastea

May 19, 2020

This was put up today. I love how she’s going for it on the one event we have an average, overscored, Simone keeping us from being called weak in the US. Everyone else is too inconsistent to be called great, IMO…

Andreea Raducan showing her babies her AA victory is all kind of funny to me. Hey kids, this is when my coach tried to cheat giving us cold medication pretending he didn’t know it was illegal then blaming it on the doctors when we got caught. Good times…

Meet your new Potential Olympian’s

May 11, 2020

I hate this change. If it affects the Olympics in the end I just might have to blog about it:)

Watch the Magnificent 7 win gold. LIVE Tonight on NBC Olympics

April 24, 2020

Screen Shot 2020-04-24 at 3.28.32 PM

Shannon Miller and Amanda Borden will be live on Instagram tonight while NBCOlympics shows the competition.

I find it interesting they chose Shannon and Amanda to do the live blogging. Maybe if this does well next year these two will be hired to commentate part of the Olympics next year. Here’s to firing Nastia and hiring these two:)

And someone told me Nastia and Shawn wore their 2008 leotards to live commentate the competition the other night. Someone please tell me that isn’t true.lol
They just make it too easy..

If I can find a link to watch on the computer I will be here for all the fun of watching Moceanu choke and be mean to Miller on the podium. Who would wanna miss that?

______

I listened to Shannon and Amanda who complimented everyone all night especially Shannon who loved Khorkina on beam and Lilia on floor. I daydreamed through it all so I have no clue what else they said. I tried to screen cap Moceanu yelling at Shannon but I missed it (You’re Welcome 🙂

Carly Patterson showed up in the chat but only said hello. They had a lot of issues with keeping the feed and Shannon couldn’t get dialed in.

Damn straight your bippy, it’s called the Fleetcenter. This article cracks me up tho because it is just such a waste of time. It’s like they only wrote it to mention the future gymnasts. Oh and don’t even believe the trials scores were low to make sure Miller and Moceanu made the team. Dawes was given every gift compulsories score under the sun at Trials and especially Nationals where she made mistake after mistake and should have been like in 100th place.

2021 Olympic rules have now been decided

April 9, 2020

New, Olympic rules decided

But the wording makes no damn sense. It sounds like the age rule is the only rule that has been changed. The word amended literally means changed… Though explain to me how this makes it fairer or more accurate? It literally means the opposite.

It first says the rules will be amended but then says, “The additional eligibility criteria remain the same.” implying rules stay the same.

You know what Country this helps the most? Russia. There little star(s) in the making are now allowed to compete.

Thanks Michelle for the info and sorry, Bogi, but your blog had to be bumped.

The one thing I did understand is that the code will stay the same, as it should.

It makes no sense at all to keep the rules the same but change the age rule. I read somewhere in my search for answers that it will still be called the 2020 Olympics but since you changed the rules, that is a lie.

Honestly, I do not agree with this at all. You know what really sucks about this are the Countries that didn’t qualify as a team for the Olympics that could have used their younger gymnasts to qualify. Brazil and Australia must have some juniors that could have bumped them up a spot in the virtual chain gang.

Boginskaya’s ego will never die
