Training videos are popping up from the Cover Girl Classic. Just when you think you're getting bored of gymnastics, videos emerge and an obsessed fan immediately starts analyzing and formulating possible World Team lineups.
Mattie Larson's double layout is heavenly on floor. She is actually looking good. Might Mattie have a shot if she can actually remain healthy?! Oh my, did those words seriously come out of my mouth?
Alicia is looking quite trim but a bit nervous. Girl needs to get one out of the way. My excitement level about her comeback just isn't as high as I'd expect it to be. It just isn't the same without the thigh rubbing. Girl needs to get back on floor. STAT.
Aly Raisman looks good but that piked double arabian has some seriously questionable form. Here's to hoping that was just a poor attempt.
Amanda Jetter is looking thin and less awkward than usual. Has she grown into her body? Those extra basics sessions are working out for her!
Sam Shapiro has never met a bar handstand that she couldn't be short on. Learn to cast. Didn't she want to be a bars and beam specialist at one point?!
Rebecca Bross is tiny and serious. Briley Casanova is labored and hopeless.
Given her bar routine, Cassie Whitcomb is making herself impossible to ignore.
Hot on the comeback trail, Chelsea Davis looks stronger than expected.
As always, Anne's interviews are stellar. One of these days, someone needs to come along and give a real answer.
Question #1: What are your goals for this meet?
I want to hit my routines and live to see another day. If I miss my bar routine, there may be spring boards being thrown in my direction.
Question#2: If you could take one image, one photograph from this meet, what would it be?
Rebecca Bross falling on floor. I was pretty excited about it. Hell, I won worlds!
Question#3: How does it feel to have _______ back in the gym?
I hate that bitch. I preferred having the attention just on me.
Question#4: What do you like most about going to the National Training Camps with the other girls?
Leaving, though I do enjoy keeping my enemies close.
Question#5: What is it like having _________ for a coach?
She's a complete witch, but at least she'll sleep with whomever to get me on the team.
