This and That
Kristina Vaculik won the prelim competition at Canadian Nationals. The finals are taking place this evening. Sabrina Gil did not compete. It has been reported that she is battling a fear of back tumbling, but has been learning new skills such as a handspring double front on floor. Talia Chiarelli did not compete due to injury, but she is expected to be invited to compete at Olympic Trials.
In one of the most beautiful cases of irony, Michael Seibert is working with Adam Rippon and has found that Adam's skating isn't butch enough. Pot meet kettle? Adam will be skating a Mad Men program to The Incredibles soundtrack. They are promising a new hairdo for Adam Rippon who is toying around with Quads the way I'm toying with camel spins to my face. I for one would not be surprised to see Adam sporting a cute bob. Adam would make a fab-u-lous Betty Draper.
Shawn Johnson was at the DWTS finale on Monday (and Tues?) That is what I'd be doing weeks before Olympic Trials. Might she be angling for a spot on the All Star Edition since she isn't too interested in doing the Post Olympic Tour? The money might even be better for her should she be successful again in the ballroom.
Catching Up With Nastia Liukin (Ms. NL has been all sorts of quiet lately. She is either keeping to herself and being focused before this weekend or is going through it. We shall see.)
Aussie Nationals Results
Camp, Canadians and Aussies after the jump!

Videos From Australian Nationals (What do we think of Daria Joura's hair? It is a bit Gidget Goes Australian for me. Where is Moon Doggy?) Go to town on being Peggy Liddick and picking the team. Be a rabid bitch too, it can be quite fun.
