“Every Four Years” - video shown at the 2012 Olympic Trials with Shawn Johnson, Carly Patterson and Shannon Miller
i loooved this. LOL,i videotaped it on my camera. a video of a video. baha. and i love how they showed Shannon at 00 Trials because there is no footage of her at the 1996 Trials,lol.
so i’m super stoked for Trials in 3 weeks and i feel like such a geek because i’ve met a lot of my gymnastics heroes at gym comps throughout the years(Shannon,Nadia,Bart,Carly,Mary Lou etc) but now i really hope they have autograph booths set up for girls like Nastia,Shawn,Aly,Jordyn,Gabby,McKayla,Alicia,Bridget…the only dilemma is….i’m older than all of these girls lol. and i know i’ll feel sorta lame waiting to meet them… BUT i will do it. thankfully i have a very young face so we all look about the same age(i just turned 29 but got mistaken for 16 the week before that,lol) so they won’t ever know and i just admire them so much.i get super starstruck too,like i don’t know what to say other than hi & thank you and i smile like a freak. the funny thing is i’m not shy AT ALL,i talk for days to most ppl and definitely speak my mind regularly and i’m just rambling now but dhfakfhah Nats was a great comp all in all and i haven’t been to a live gymnastics competition in awhile and I CANT WAIT. my fellow gym fans understand right? haha ;D
i love love love this leo. it’s GK and was designed by Carly Patterson as one of their “Legends” leotards. She did better than Kim,Shannon & Amanda imo. it’s Olympic themed,love that.

missmegs6:this reminds me A LOT of the previous 2 quads..Nastia went to Pac Rims in ‘08 and i really can’t rem if Carly did but i’m assuming she went in 2004. oh wait,i think she might have gotten injured after Am.Cup. anyway…Jordyn do a couple events here,don’t overdo it and please save yourself for Nats/Trials :)
Favorite US leos of the last four Olympics
