I’m having a live stream in 3.5 hours (7PM EDT). We’re watching the 1989 World Championship Optionals it’s the final group with USSR, Romania, China, and USA. It’ll be fun. I think.

Monica Phelps is commentating.

Oy. Bee Farm. No. Please. I like you. I want you to have knees.

If there’s one thing that impresses me about her, it’s that she doesn’t sit that thing every single time.

Pretty sure she’d be on a different apparatus by the time she made that salute. Plowing through the judges like nobody cares!

That triple twist is disconcerting, though. They either need to move it up or take it out. We need her to shine in Rio at 100%.

fofessional said: Love the new montage, do you have Spring Of Life anywhere because that was my absolute favourite one?

Thanks, but it’s actually 5 years old haha.


I do have that one. I’ll have to go through my hard drive.

I can’t support unsafe gymnastics, no matter who is doing it or how compelling their story is. I hate twisted takeoffs, I hate consistently low elements in the air and on the landing, and I hate it when gymnasts can’t pick a shape and stick to it in the air (I’m looking at all those pucked full-ins and double laytucks and letter 4’ed triple twists).

Maybe Aimee Boorman can give a clinic on skill selection. She’s pretty much eliminated every unsafe/questionable element from Simone’s repertoire (except that Gogean).
