My favorite moment of the quad was the standing ovation(s) Nastia got at Olympic Trials. But I couldn’t find a video of that. So here’s a love fest between Martha and Nastia that will have you crying sloppy tears.
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.
Four generations of USA Gymnastics All-Around Olympic Champions:
Mary Lou Retton (1984 - Los Angeles), Gabby Douglas (2012 - London), Carly Patterson (2004 - Athens) and Nastia Liukin (2008 - Beijing)
Jordyn Wieber and Nastia Liukin — 2009 || 2012
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!
2012 Olympic Trials || Nastia Liukin & Aly Raisman
seeing the top moment was SO cool. i rem telling my husband “omgah,i’m gonna cry. look at Aly over there” and i was way over on the UB side of the arena! it’s just so sweet that Aly did that even though she was about to go on floor(a couple pp later). these aren’t shitty ass hugs either,they’re GOOD hugs.
Nastia Liukin (WOGA)
