Not even pretending we are being fair. Sorry but Hurd has no business on this team and don’t get me started on Locklear.

Nellie Kim and her BFF, Valeri Liukin #ForReals… Camp Videos

09/19/2017

You need any MORE proof she had a reason to cheat for Nastia? Read this interview where she admits she hangs out, socially with Valeri Liukin.

 

It’s NOT a conflict of interest to hang out with a gymnasts father? It’s NOT a conflict of interest to run down to the judges table DURING the Olympics when you “go fishing” with the guy who coaches and fathered a gymnast, in the sport YOU’RE IN CHARGE OF?
 

“The elite coaches – Valery Liukin, Evgeny Marchenko, Artur Akopyan – compete with each other, but they still go to hunt and fish together. I joined them a few times when I was the head of the WAG technical committee, and they kept criticizing the code, saying what needs to be changed. These people love their job.”

 

Not only does she hang out with that man but he casually whines about what he wants in the sport THAT SHE WAS IN CHARGE OF AT THAT TIME.

I just can’t. I literally just can’t.lol

 

Tomorrow night they announce the world team and I’ll make a blog but this shit CAN’T BE MADE UP.

~~~~

And while we are at it, lets BRAG about our gymnasts and their under age drinking. Oh Miss Val….

I have this hate/hate thing with Miss Val.

I have no respect for someone who bribes the trolls of the worlds with good seats to Nationals so their message board won’t call her out for anything related to the negative part of her “Gymnastics empire” yet I respect her for making sure the gymnasts on her team are protected , at any cost.

If you watched that Jump, Jive and thrive video I posted a few weeks ago it’s easy to figure out why everyone seems to like her. Miss Val feeds their ego’s with a healthy dose of ass kissing that anyone with narcissistic tendencies would easily devour (why do you think she gets along with Nastia and Alicia so well?) It just rubs me the wrong way. It’s also phony.

Just some highlights but wait….

(anyone else think maybe they cut out the falls and that is why these aren’t full routines???)

Camp Picture

From now on, Jordan Chiles picks Team USA’s leo.

No upgrades shown from Ashton Kutcher on bars but they didn’t show her full routine (weird to cut it off there)..

Morgan Hurd was the bounciest of any video I have seen so far..

Trinity Thomas did a 1.5 Yurchenko. Did she do that at Nationals???? They also cut quite a bit of her routines out

Ragan being Ragan (Not Manny. That would be bad well not always bad…)

My US Nationals wrap up, part 2…

09/11/2017

Before I start, god help us but Lifetime is making a Simone Biles movie

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I must say up until Classic’s I wasn’t impressed very much with Trinity Thomas but after Nationals she was easily my favorite senior to watch. She needs to upgrade to be competitive but her beam was my favorite of the competition.

Anyone else notice that the scoring between day 1 and day 2 of Nationals took some dramatic turns for certain gymnasts?

I know Alyona Shchennikova made some mistakes day 2 but it seemed the judges decided they wanted no part of her on the off day. They also decided they loved Jordan Chiles between day 1 and day 2. When I came home and saw her scores I figured she finally lived up to the potential but she didn’t the judges just scored her like she did. Her beam routine on day 2 was easily the biggest gift of the entire competition.

When I first saw Ragan’s floor routine online I didn’t like it at all. My first impression was complete disgust. I just thought it was horrible but when I saw it online during Nationals I didn’t hate it as much and I finally figured out why, It wasn’t the same music. Apparently some guy on twitter sent Kim Zmeskal some comments about Dixie being racist so they changed the music, at least the beginning.

IG Magazine re-tweeted an article from some Christian website and then back tracked because some politically correct nut cases got upset. The guy received death threats and then he whined to IG it was their fault. Yet only a few days earlier he was proud of the trouble he had started because his tweet has been used in an article. The FUNNIEST part of all of this is the GGMB racists that were part of the biggest hate thread that place ever had made comments and or liked a comment about how wrong the music was on IG’s facebook page. Talk about ironic. Dude you and your co-horts seem to forget that anti-semitic hate filled thread YOU contributed to. Talk about hypocrisy… Go back to August 27th to read the comments.

Screen Shot 2017-09-11 at 7.12.54 PM

Ragan also did her Patterson during podium training. but she didn’t compete it during Nationals. I guess she knew she didn’t need it but she needs to throw it if she wants to use it when it matters, like event finals.

Speaking of Ragan this is the SECOND article IG has had about Regan where the headline painted a comment she made as arrogant only to go inside to see that the full comment was anything but arrogant. Is International Gymnast Magazine turning into a tabloid?

Has there ever been a year after the Olympic Nationals that didn’t give a surprise Parkette? Margzetta Frazier

The fall of Morgan Hurd…

She came in with a chance at taking the Senior title and left as the biggest disappointment of the meet. This is what happens the gymternet decides you’re the next “it” girl even though your start values don’t merit the title.

I know. I know, I am mean. I do like Hurd. She is easily the most aesthetically appealing Senior gymnast to watch but this code has taught us year after year that artistic will never trump, skill unless your dad is Russian and friends with the HBIC. I expect Hurd to bounce back and camp and don’t think it will necessarily be a bad idea to send her to worlds to see how she manages the pressure BEFORE they put her in a team situation which leads me to my thoughts on who should make the World team….. ( In a few days 🙂

Chinese and Romanian Nationals

09/02/2017

Both are taking place right now.  The AA for the Chinese is the 5th or 6th of September and Larisa Iordache won Romanian Nationals.

For all the results of Chinese Nationals, this tumblr blog has them.

Fan Yilin on bars. According to that Chinese blog above she isn’t training with the National team but her FIG license was recently renewed and everyone is hoping she gets sent to Worlds. Her bar routine has a 6.3 or 6.4 start value. She is very much a sentimental favorite of mine after what happened to her at the Olympics last year. The blatant cheating to keep her out of the bar finals to make sure Aliya won still pisses me off.

Anyone find it ironic the Chinese judges can find nearly 3 points off in deductions on their gymnasts but the US judges can only find little over a point in Ashton Kutcher’s beam routine.lol

 

All of Larisa’s AA routines. I like you hope she wins Worlds but only if Shang Chunsong doesn’t 🙂 Honestly all of the top competitors seem great. Even Ragan doesn’t bother me as much as she bothers everyone else. Angelina Melnikova, Elena Eremina ( and the million spelling versions of her name) the only one I don’t particularly care for is Riley so she will probably win:)

My 2017 US Nationals wrap up. Anna Li judging dad, Bozo’s big mouth, Bower’s left home ,MIGGY . Part 1

08/24/2017

Well the Miggy is for Case and the fight (Go Miggy)

The over scoring of Riley McCusker. Apparently (word of the day) this special treatment for the gymnasts USAG likes is still at work ( Didn’t think it wouldn’t be , honestly) With her 5.6 and 5.5 start value beam getting second and 5.2 start value in floor getting tied for 4th.

Am I surprised she was over scored? Hell no but I was kind of surprised they still insist on holding her up. It’s clear she will be in the hunt regardless of what she actually does on the competition floor. Marta got a face lift and looks like

Did anyone else notice Anna Li was judging a meet where her father and mother had a gymnast competing? Yeah I didn’t either good thing someone else did.(Thank you anonymous follower) who found this on twitter

Didn’t people get up in arms about Komova’s mom judging some meet she competed at?

Someone apparently questioned him on why he went to Nationals and I guess it’s okay to sell your alleged soul if you do it for an award.

Of all the people who could have stood up for the victims the last person that should be doing it is the guy who was added to an Olympic team based solely on his membership in “Team Hilton” Funny how he never said a word when it benefit him every year.

And lets talk about , Allan Bower who finished second at Nationals being left home in favor of Sam Mikulak, among others. The guy finished second in the AA. He deserved to be part of this would team over a guy that falls and chokes at every major competition he has attended. Not to mention he was 1 messed up pommels routine from winning the whole damn meet.(Finishing third on pommels even with the mistake) Hey, It’s not like we need an gymnasts on the mens team that can HIT POMMELS….

NOTHING has changed for the men. They will continue to be the butt of jokes until they do something when it matters. See you in 4 years.

In a few days , Part 2. US Nationals……..

Jump, Jive & Thrive
is a special that will be airing in October hosted by Shannon Miller and dumbass, Scott Hamilton that will feature gymnastics, dance and a bunch of other hoopla to benefit cancer. Miss Val will be choreographing and it will feature Olympians like Alicia Sacramone and Laurie Hernandez.

This link above is actually Shannon and Miss Val interviewing , Mary Lee Tracy, Amanda Borden, Betty Okino, Jordyn Wieber, My favorite gymnast of all time,Laurie Hernandez, Madison Kocian and Alicia Sacramone.

I have said it a million times, NBC needs to fire the loser trio and hire Shannon Miller and Alicia Sacramone. Start watching at 106.13 and tell me these two wouldn’t be great together. Alicia’s arrogance and sarcasm with Shannon’s up beat Mary Poppins persona would be comedic gold.

2017 US Nationals Seniors :Day 1. LIVE Blogging

08/18/2017

Results

OVERALL:

The judges are on crack. Leotards are just plain ugly with a few exceptions. Riley is liked by the judges regardless of what mistakes she makes. Ragan got a gift on beam big time but unlike most everyone else she actually stayed on.

I found this entire Nationals the most boring it has been since 2009. It might even top. I don’t see any of these girls being on the team in 4 years. Not even Ragan though she has the best shot.

What did you think?

Rotation 4:

Don’t kill me but I kind of like Smith’s leo. DTY with a step. 14.400. She was wobbly and a bit messy in some places tonight but overall she is the deserving leader after night 1. She stayed on beam. Others did not and she was rewarded for.

Huge Amanar with a step for Chiles. Decent air but very good distance. 15.150

I missed Hurd on bars will check it out after. Missed riley on beam. Nice job feed.

Alona messy landings on floor but this is the one event of hers I don’t cringe watching overall.

I kind of like SJS Paint ball throw up leo too. Gd what is happening to me.lol

Trinity Thomas messed up her Pak on bars but for such a tall gymnast I like her swing.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Rotation 3:

Yurchenko fulls in 2017 are ******* hilarious to me.lol

If I was at this competition I would want my money back.

Brandy Johnson take your kid to college, now.

Very short vault for Hurd.

Riley hit bars. Some form feet issues but that was great for what we have seen so far. She was also short on last few handstands.

Great floor for Ragan til her last pass which i think was short but the camera panned out so it was hard to tell.

Well deserved 14.550 for Riley based on what other received. Thought Ragan was under scored compared to everyone on that event.

I finally like a leo (Souza) The floor routine not so much. Texas Dreams has different leo’s??????

One hell of one handed catch by Victoria Nguyen on bars.

Alona fell on her wold turn was short on every leap and jump. Really low dismount. If this is in the 13’s I am done.lol 11.095. She did not get any connections or leaps if the judges did their jobs. sill too high for my taste.

Sloppy landings all around for Chiles.

Fall off beam for Locklear to go with all her cheated leps and jumps and bobbles and a big step back on her dismount. Oh well her Leo is kind of pretty albeit way to high at the neck. That would drive me nuts. 12.800 which is way too high compared to the mess from everyone else on beam.

I am naming blog for night 2 of Nationals. Come back Simone. Nationals day 2.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Rotation 2:

Ashton hit her bars but it seemed really empty.

Hand down on beam for Chiles.

I don’t think Thomas’s floor will ever grow on me.lol

Jade Carey’s vault was a mess. Her form is a messy mess with a huge leg separation. She fell on her Amanar that I didn’t see.

Ragan’s beam was wobbly but she stayed on. Not her best. I agree gymnast41. Nerves are getting to Ragan.

Fall and huge step and both feet fly out of bounds for Hurd on floor.

Flat feet and missed handstands for Alona on bars. Real judges are going to kill her bars score if doing their job. 14.500. I guess the fix is in for her being named to world team for her connection to Woga. Why am I not surprised? Russian/ American connections by judges at worlds is appalling but with Kim gone hopefully that changes.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Rotation 1:
Alona has a piked down messy vault with step. Soza messy on bars and now we watch SJS stand around waiting for her event. Fun.

The leo’s so far are unusally ugly tonight.

Good bars from Chiles. Flat feet but hit her handstands. Though one big leg separation on release.

Trinity Thomas is growing on me. She has pretty lines. She needs to fix her leaps on beam.

Yankees Suck:) Come on Red sox.

I just totally day dreamed through Riley’s floor and they never showed Ragan’s bars on the international feed. Okay they showed Ragan on bars. Some leg issues but she flew through that routine.

A couple balance checks on beam from Hurd but she covered them well. Very short dismount and two steps forward.

Some sloppy landings and a nailed full in from Jade on floor.

~~~~~~~~~~~~

The background music has been horrid all week.

We have a Canadian singing the National Anthem totally off tune by the way. The song is meant to be sung one way I hate when people change it up.
