Random day at GTT.B plus a rant on usa-gymnastics

August 25, 2009

First my rant. Why is it that USA-gymnastics sends it’s 8th and 9th place Junior’s to one of the few Junior events outside the US? No offense to Briley Cassanova (best name EVER!) and Sophina DeJesus but Kyla Ross or any of the top 4 gymnasts at this years Junior Championships should have been sent over Briley and Sophina. I am sure Marta will create some US junior competition against the US and Zimbabwe any time now but those competitions serve NO PURPOSE but to prop up US Gymnasts.

I have been complaining for years about the lack of competitions Marta sends the top gymnasts to outside of the US and Canada. It’s like she is afraid of having them lose.

Anna Pavlova is back in training after her injury. Right now she is taking it slow. She does not have her skills back but is working hard. Info can be found here

Alina Mustafina holds the lead after day one at the Russian Cup. Only details so far are HERE

Ksenia Afanasyeva finished third. She is injured and according to IG will not be going to Worlds. I think IG spoke too soon.

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

Chellsie Memmel came back from Nationals and is in full training mode. Looks like Memmel has some unfinished business after God ruined another chance at Olympic glory for her. Bad form and all you just can’t hate Chellsie Memmel the kid. What a fighter.

Where are the Romanian gymnasts anyway?

Things we miss. Number 14

Until next time….
