For those who have any questions about what Martha is always implying.

  1. fuck now that is gymnastics. Sad to say we do not have that in our country. Sorry not with raisman, or even ross. not weiber, maroney comes close at times.

  3. I dunno. I usually prefer her type, but Komova looks a bit too fragile to me. Plus I just watched a bunch of Christy Henrich videos on youtube. Depressing. Girl was talented.

    1. Komova is deceptively strong.

  4. Actually, we do have that in our country... or we did. Her name was Nastia Liukin, and she was the 2008 Olympic AA Champion.

  5. Fuck is right. No one wants to watch stumpy chicks with bad feet. World class athletes should have it all.

    1. Quite right - as long as "it all" does not include a cast 1/2 on UB ;-) I do love Vika tho.

  7. For minutes, I thought I was looking at an old photo of Shayla Worley. Perhaps there is a legit reason for that.

    Gabby hits some divine, "international" positions at times - or at least comes reasonably close. Photographic evidence was posted on this very blog.

    I've seen at least a couple of action photos of Kyla Ross that looked ASIAN enough for me. I thought about sending them here to Auntie Joyce. Kyla may be somewhat boring to watch sometimes - but the photos are further proof that the aesthetic basics are there.

  8. I always thought Kyla had way better lines,and posture......I don't care if people think she is boring, she has beautiful lines that some girls lack. Maybe all the muscular girls have short muscles that make it harder to stretch, and those other non- muscled girls have nice elongated muscle lines that allow them to stretch better. Do you get what I mean?

  9. In this age of execution scores, why isn't this kind of beauty and technique rewarded? Raisman should never score over 7.5 on execution on UB or BB.

  10. Sarah Finnegan has the international look and she displays it beautifully.

    Very interesting perspective on why this is in the "Judging" section of this page:
