This and That



Komova won the AA at the Russian Cup.  The Russian girls are beginning to get into form.  As expected, they are not as sharp as Martha's girls.  What is amusing is that whatever news editor made this clip selected a number of areas where Komova is actually not looking all that sharp...overtwisting and landing her triple full awkwardly, not deserving credit for a double L turn, etc.  Mustafina's vault is stuck and fugly.  There is something about her personality that makes up for the bent leg.  The 2010 Worlds were her shining Dobre moment, but that fierce ass biotch is going to go to London and bust it out and terrify us with her diva personality.  Paseka sat down her Amanar, which is not promising for the Team Finals situation.  It keeps the team wonderfully undecided and may give Nabieva enough time to still be in the mix.  With this many question marks, it is unlikely the Russians will win in London, but they may very well rack up the individual medals.  With their consistency on bars, it would be a shame if they didn't come home with two medals.

Russian Cup Results:

1.Viktoria Komova       15.200 16.200 15.067 14.300 60.767

4.Ksenia Afanasyeva     13.600 13.500 14.700 14.267 56.067
5.Anna Pavlova            14.733 12.833 14.533 13.600 55.697
6.Anna Myzdrikova       13.833 11.867 13.300 13.400 52.400
7.Yulia Belokobylskaya 13.367 12.500 13.567 12.900 52.334

Chloe Lukasiak's full Unchained solo.  Listen to how crazy the crowd goes for her.  This aspect of reality is never mentioned on TV.  Everyone knows these girls and either is dying to see them or kick their asses every time they perform.



Nastia talking about second chances and her shoulder.  There is something about her demeanor that will make us point back to these interviews after she performs at Trials.  Does she know what she can do in two and a half weeks?  What is physically possible?



Martha discusses Price's gymnastics.  She would like her to work on the artistry.  It is very Romanian of her to think that could really be improved in two weeks.



Kristie Phillips brings us back to the Olympic year.  Frankly, we need to hand a group of these former Olympic hopefuls a bottle of vodka and let them dish around a table.  There really does need to be a Karolyi reunion on Oprah's Second Chapter.  The girls from '88 and the six pack could just talk it out.  Dominique and Martha could sit down like Nancy Kerrigan and Tonya Harding and just work it out for money and ratings.  Bela could chase Oprah around on his four wheeler for conditioning drills and her her "YOUUU CAN DO IIIT."  Oprah can ask Kerri how her ankle is doing.  Imagine the possibilities.

"MARRRRYYYYYLOOOOUUU RETTTTONNNNN"

"NADUYAAA COMAN EEEEEEEEEEECHHHH"

"KRISTIE PHILLIPS!"

Kristie tells us of her self esteem returning as a person being away from Karolyis...



Brenna Dowell broke her hand two weeks ago and is competing...  If one can survive GAGE and Martha, they can survive anything.


Tobias and Stagniunas are going to Novi with Igor.  Allegedly, Igor was checked out for some time and felt Marina was making the decisions regarding the top teams.  When he tried to check back in, Marina did not have it and ended things when he wanted his own new teams.

Yu-Na Kim arrives in Shanghai for Artistry on Ice.  She is also dropping her slander lawsuit against the professor that said her student teaching was for show.  It is probably a smart move, as I don't think anyone actually expects Yu-Na to be teaching mathematics to third graders for a fraction of what she earns in a day on the ice.

  2. How the hell, did Brenna compete with a broken hand??? She did bars for gods sake!!! AA as a matter of fact. WOW! Why wasn't she wearing a brace on her had?


    PS. Her tumbling is insane! Beautiful with near perfect form. Forward tumbling galore. That front double pike is crazy. Is it even in the code? Her fx D score should be higher!!! We all know forward tumbling is much more difficult.

  3. Why havent they posted the russian videos. I gotta bet not as good as the scores. From the clips not up to these scores . Once again the Russian scored most likely overscored.

    1. If the qualification scores were an indication, then the Russian Cup judges are NOT overscoring their gymnasts - historically as well, the rationale favoured is that the lower the scores, the more it forces the gymnasts to work. And what was Visa Championships then? Aly Raisman getting a score similar to Komova's UB in the World Championships? GROSS EXAGGERATION right there!

      Oh and it's called 'tact' and strategy! Do you think they want the whole world to know their SVs and routines? NO! They want to hit in London!

  4. Fuck Nastia. Who gives a shit about her free fucking ride? No one.

  5. What do you mean about Nastia's interview? Like, does she seem like she's giving up or what do you mean we will look back at this interview?
