  1. Thank you for posting rhythmic Worlds videos. I don't like rhythmic gymnastics, but I am so intrigued by the drama of Viner! Are the Russian girls actually the best? I don't know, I don't understand the sport.

  2. I think that Chelsea Davis video was taken b/n the 2006 and 2007 seasons which means it could be filmed in the early part of 2007. Which would make sense since she references "last year" so much. In 2006, she was a US championships qualifier but was not able to compete due to her knee injury that she describes. I found it to be fascinating series that Burdette did on those three girls and I'm so interested to see the final video about Kimbo.

  3. Cool, i like Bama's video, felt like i was in the gym with them.

  4. Damn, the Romanian girls go from the World Cup in Belgium, to Romanian Nationals, and now a Tri-meet all in 3 weeks?
