The IOC approved a Team Event for the 2014 Olympic Games in Russia. It could definitely be a showdown between the US, Russia and Japan.
Ryan Bradley wants to bring home some hardware from Worlds. And I want to be Olympic Champion...
Shawn Johnson is training hard and looks to be in better shape. Getting her wisdom teeth didn't hurt either. It looks like Martha added Shawn back to the National Team to keep an eye on her, fuck with her, get her to lose weight and monitor her progress. Only Martha would add someone back and then issue a dire warning six weeks later. Shawn and Nastia both continue to travel an awful lot. Shawn's comeback is more confirmed at this point, but she is still traveling more than she should be.
Rachael Flatt and Christina Gao were awarded training grants from the Women's Sports Foundation. Unfortunately, that only encourages Rachael Flatt to keep training and competing.
David Boudia signed with PMG and Nastia's fabulous agent. Let us please arrange a marriage. Their offspring could make fabulous Olympics.
