This and That
Alicia Sacramone Q+A before the Denver-BYU-Air Force-UGA Quad Meet.
Voir aren't sure whether they'll compete at Canadian Nationas, but Igor Shpilband says they'll decide soon. They're getting back into shape slowly and plan to compete at Four Continents and Worlds. Tessa supposedly isn't feeling any pain in her shins, but she admitted to lying to us for the last two years...so why should this time be any different?
Evan Lysacek on Olympic fame, Russian rivalry and diet hallucinations.
I was nice about Johnny Weir's book, but look who came out in his Cirque du Soleil makeup for his events yesterday? Remember when he used to dress fashionably, but remotely human in public back in 06ish? That was before the over-the-top image really took hold. Note Tara Modlin's latest client, Sarah Hughes, following Johnny around everywhere to get her face in the press.
Suzanne Yoculan will be commentating the Utah-UGA meet this weekend and is scheduled to be commentating at least one meet per weekend for the rest of the season.
Nicholas LaRoche became a part of the NoH8 Campaign.
Va Zam gave an interview with IG where she says she'll be returning to elite and would like to contribute on every event. Given that this is NCAA season and everyone loves Zam and Miss Val, we should pretend that this will actually be a reality. Note where she gives a cult shout-out to Brittani McCullough coming back from her torn achilles to win an NCAA FX Title, because as well all know, NCAA is absolutely on par with success in elite. Zam did say that she wasn't 'over training,' which we've heard is the understatement of the year from her teammates. It remains to be seen whether the naturally talented gymnast would survive a day in New Waverly.
Pua Hall has been showing off some training clips on youtube lately. Here she is trying a toe on-tkatchev.
