This and That

Is the stress of London giving Komova a cold sore?  I blame the Americans.

There are no words for this video.  The Shibutanis adore social media and Adam Rippon has come out...of his shell.

Russia's Olympic Gymnasts set bar high for London 2012

Joshua Farris' short program debut.

Armin Mahbanoozadeh's new long program.

It looks like Marley and Brubaker just threw together their long program before they debuted it, but it does display potential.  In American pairs years, they've been together forever by now.  As she ages, the creepy vibe factor will lessen.

Mariah Bell.

Dare Maxwell's bar training is getting more impressive.  Now she needs to start linking skills together.  She is going to be like Nastia before the double front 1/2 if she doesn't start working on her stamina.


  1. M/B sbs are out of sync... Embaressing caydee could do better and she just hooked up w/ John

  2. Adam and the Shibs! Adam looks like JW at first. I had to do a double-take.

  3. classy SP from joshua farris. i appreaciate the lack of editing and cutting of the bach's prelude.

  4. wow, adam is looking hot without his curls.

    was that armin's first quad in competition?

  5. I just love Afanasyeva's FX spin... so beautiful! What is the name for it? I didn't have a good impression of Komova at world's last year, but she seems like such a nice girl in the interviews.

  6. I think there needs to be a fluff piece where Tim or al get up and walk along the beam, that's only 4" wide

  7. Coming from a heterosexual male, Komova have such a great smile.


  8. I clicked on the Shibs/Rippon video because at first I thought it was Johnny.
