The Media Summit




Shawn Johnson was actually at the media summit, but she wasn't photographed due to her refusal to wear a leotard like the other gymnasts.  It is curious, as she did look to be in decent shape in recent media appearances.  It certainly adds fuel to the speculation that she will not be competing with the intent to make the Olympic Team this summer.  Having a book come out the week of Nationals is quite the distraction to begin with.  Shawn did talk about her weight gain and loss at the media summit.

After all those years at WOGA, Rebecca Bross still can't hit a gorgeous pose.  The WOGA girls lucked out with the summit being held in Dallas, as they switched Sunday and Monday training and were able to train out yesterday before heading to the summit mid afternoon.

A few members of the world team are fighting the puberty fairy like many sixteen-year-olds before them.  It may be a race against time with the depth and level of difficulty required to make the team.  Amanars aren't easy with budding breasts.  A few girls look like they are fighting the inevitability of strong NCAA futures.  Now is not the time for Jewish breasts to develop.  Just ask someone like Kristie Phillips about the treachery of holding out for the last eight months.  The excitement is building with mere weeks until Classics and Nationals.

Gabby Douglas is smiling as only the fittest member of Team USA can.

Although she was not present, JSOnline shows us photos of Memmel's beautiful form.

  5. I love Shawn, I really do. But after this, I can't help but just start putting it all together what so many others have been saying. She's done. It's a shame she's leading so many people on right now. It's causing me to look at her differently now.

  6. Some of the ...budding... might also have to do with the fact that they probably aren't wearing chest-flattening sports bras. Just a thought...

  7. It's weird seeing the 'new' girls in leos from 2007 worlds and the last Olympics. I hope the leos for the Olympics incorporate the American flag

  8. HATE. HATE. HATE Bross' hair. Seriously, she looks like she doesn't even give a shit. At least try to put some effort into your looks girl!

    Shawn actually looks skinny in the P&G "thank your mom" event (& pictures). Why avoid the leo? IDK, everyone talks about her stopping & just milking it but why did she bother to train & go to Pan Ams last year or the MJ Center earlier this year?

    Aly looks heavier but she'll still be on the team as she can stay on the beam.

    Nastia looks good. Hopefully she'll have a beam routine at classics to back it up.

  9. I love how you say, Gabby is the fittest just because she is the thinnest. All the girls are extremly fit! What is it with gay guy's and their insistence on ultra-thin girls and women. Fashion industry, ballet, figure skating, & gymnastics. Being bigger dosen't seem to hurt Ponor or Afan!

  10. I say Gabby is the fittest because she is RIPPED.

  11. It's a known fact that muscle definition shows better on darker skin. That's why all those body builders, tan with-in an inch of their lives. Lol....I have a hard time believing anyone is more ripped than Jordyn.

  12. I don't think Aly looks heavier. Her boobs just got bigger;)

  13. Gabby has a TON of lean quick twitch muscle.

  14. Alicia vaulted with boobs

    YOU CAN TOO!!

  15. When the girls are together there are some noticable differences between their builds, but the girls standardize each other. Take any one of them, put them in a group of "normal" people and they are all tiny. And, Aly would definitely take all USA WAG girls in a pose off:

  16. AJ, you didn't post Nastia's split pose. I thought it was the best. http://www.gettyimages.com/detail/news-photo/gymnast-nastia-liukin-poses-for-a-portrait-during-the-2012-news-photo/144485943
    The girl makes leos look glamourous.

  17. Some of these photos are so gross. Like, for starters, when is Nastia going to do something about her skin? Seriously. They make all kinds of products. Less money on fashion, more money on skin, honey.

    Then Vega... I don't even know where to begin. But, AJ... come on. Your comment about Gabby was an obvious skinny comment. You have made ir quite clear on this blight that thin is beautiful to you and muscled is not. If your comment really was about her being ripped, you would have focused on Wieber. That bitch is stacked.

    Own your cunty nature. It's why people keep coming back to this rag.

  18. 1st picture of Rebecca is roughly equal to what Metallica would look like doing gymnastics.

  19. Oh - I probably mean the 2nd pic of Rebecca (1st solo pic).
