Gymnastics new star?

September 25, 2009

Sorry I have been missing in action again. It’s Football season AND Baseball playoff season heck even skating season is about to start.

Since I’ve been gone Viktoria Komova won the Junior International with some pretty good scores. The routines are not out yet but if her bars was a poorly performed as at the EYOF earlier this year “ovascore” was living and breathing at this event. Viktoria is the daughter of World Champion (team event 1985) and GWG Champion Vera Kolesnikova.

If you would like to compare the two I found some videos on you tube of both.

Viktoria vs Vera

The AA and EF scores are below. I refuse to acknowledge any scores in the 13’s or any US gymnast beaten by the Japanese at a Major event so the AA conversation ends with Viktoria (Don’t get too attached. You have to wait 2 years before she can compete at a senior event)

I am SO thrilled that the US men’s team is sending their gymnasts out of the Country. Congrats to John Orozco on his third place finish in the AA. Now if they only would have sent Kyla Ross or Sabrina Vega to this event over Briley Casanova. Why does USA-Gymnastics never send it’s best Junior or senior women gymnasts out of the Country?
