Are you serious? You thought that Peszek looked in shape? On the video when she was on the beam, it looked like her ass was as big as a barn. What a shame, she was my favorite gymnast. Does she look that bad?
Peszek had surgery on her shoulder and only recently (last 2months or so) tweeted that she was finally able do to upper body work (handstand). She's also been celebrating her senior yr of high school. I'd say given these two factors, its amazing that she's not in worse shape. If she keeps it up over the summer I wouldn't be surprised if she made nationals or even tried for Worlds as she gears up for her NCAA career.
Peszek will get nowhere near a world team. She's a dud. She'll be great in NCAA but was never quite able to perform as an elite international.
Peszek is hardly a dud. She was a good gymnast who managed to make a World and Olympic Team. She was actually better in 2009 than she was previously in some ways. Peszek is a giant muscle with Serena Williams legs. She will likely have a good NCAA career and could even help UCLA gain and extra tenth or two next season when replacing Anna Li.
I believe that the song "Brick House" was written for Peszek. She is carrying a lot of muscle on that frame. Just a few extra pounds would make her appear....fluffy.
Is Bridget training an arbian on beam?!?!?!?!
Sam has a fair amount of fat on her. Yes, she's strong, but that does not excuse the fat. And I'm not talking about her really tapering down like Chellsie did when she made a run for it. I'm talking about her not even being close. She's definitely fatter than Jana was, right now.The injury is irrelevant. You can always control what is on your plate. More salad, less ice cream. I'm actually a Sam (and Shawn) fan. But she is not doing something that is WELL under her power, if she is training while that heavy. Welcome to college...
