I hated this fluff at the time, but looking back post 2008 Olympics, it’s the best thing ever. I love it when people prove others wrong. Suck it Al.

it’s just like the Shannon M vs Domi M fluffs of ‘96. they had Domi swimming in the pool and Shannon grinding it out in the gym,lol.

i really hope/want Sacramone,Nastia and Rebecca Bross to put out biographies. i feel like they’d each have really interesting stories to read about. Sac and Nast could possibly do this as they’re sorta mainstream…but it’d be so sick but prolly not likely if Bross did too….man,i hope she comes back for 1 more year. i haven’t started Jordyn’s mom book yet but i think it’ll prolly be pretty good/decent. what am i saying? i’ll read just about any gymnastics book out there(actually,i WILL read any gym book out there,baha).

 also,can we have 6 gymnasts on the Worlds team next year?! like can we please? i’ve asked this before cuz i can’t remember but is that a FIG rule or an Olympic Committee rule because if it’s an Olympic rule,i say in between Games,let us have 6!

Nastia Liukin laid face-first on the mat, her hopes of making a second Olympic team officially gone, and she knew it.  For a split second Liukin remained motionless. In the back of her head, she could hear her father and coach, Valeri, reminding her of a lesson learned long ago.

Finish what you start. No matter how painful it may be.

This is exactly why I will always love you Nastia.  Thank you for everything, from life lessons to gold medal moments, and inspiring many in between.

My first encounter of the season with a 4-year fan

korbutflip:

I posted a status on facebook about Nastia bombing nationals (as much as someone can bomb yet still go through to trials, but that’s for another post). Someone commented agreeing with me, saying “I wonder what changed in 4 years?” I had to explain to him how four years in gymnastics years is like 20 years in football years.

missmegs6: same,we had friends over during Nats today(that was annoying in itself,they ask SO many questions!) and they were like “well,if Nastia was the best in the world in 2008,she must be better than these girls now” and i was like “oh no,these girls are doing harder skills and never stopped training” LOL ppl don’t get that the skills go away and Nastia really only started training like a year ago. they just assume she’s just as good as she was in 2008. ;D. they thought the same with Shawn and they were like but she was the best in the world and i was like well,yeah at that competition in 2007. haha.
