Team England at the Commonwealth games
I can’t be the only one who thinks seeing Octavian Bellu in a rainbow shirt is hilarious.
That should be their next national team leo design. XD
Gym adventures with Mac
Well she didn’t say that it ended with her bones shattering into 525,600 pieces so… progress..?
525, 600 pieeeeces
525, 600 pieces so smalllllll
FYI for people that don’t know - this is Catherine Lyons’ teammate, Georgia-Mae Fenton. She’s cute as a button and an amazing gymnast. She was the previous Espoir Champion before Catherine most recently won the title. She has been battling injuries for the last year or so but she’s still young enough that hopefully she can come back healthy for her senior years (senior in 2016).
Okay this is totally a jab to MLT
I love how Aliya looks mildly disgusted by everything 24/7 because that’s how I feel 24/7
im actually not super knowledgeable on any quad but the current on but oh well ill give it a shot.
(in no particular order): aliya, vika, nabs, yao, he, quishuang, dufournet, bross, tweddle, porgras
12th National Games || He Kexin competes the last routine of her career [x]
It’s funny that Tim said that because I was in the press zone after and Aliya was one of the nicest there and no Russians were mad? And when someone asked her how she thought she did, she was like “not my best, which is why I didn’t win” (through a translator). THE GYMNASTS ARE MORE MATURE THAN THE COMMENTATORS AND PRESS, who just like to stir up drama to create this continuation of the Cold War rivalry that just doesn’t exist in real life.
The Gymternet is excited to introduce you to another group of brand new junior elites you’ll see in competition at the 2014 Secret U.S. Classic later this week.
Today in this edition of SO MANY JUNIORS, HOW, I present to you…more juniors. Juniors everywhere.
Things I learned
- Olivia Dunne is gonna be a BAMF. That floor routine!! When she started out with the double tuck I was like eh, this will be a three-pass NCAA-esque routine, but nope. Four passes, and ends with a double back. Plus, it’s done pretty nicely?! She is tiny but can tumble!
- Adriana Popp is basically Shawn Johnson, body-wise and some of her skills remind me of Shawn
- Kailey Gillings and Kaitlin DeGuzman don’t have a ton of difficulty but their execution is killer
On July 18 when I got home from work I was like “I should make a gym site, that would be fun.” About eight manic hours later, around 4 am on July 19, the site went live. I figured I’d get a few people from Tumblr enjoying the content but we got about 2500 hits on our first day and I was SHOCKED. Now, a week later, we’ve had 53,300 hits. I have NO IDEA how this happened but I wanted to say THANK YOU because it’s been so much fun. We will definitely have more exciting things coming up, including a partnership with another popular site, some great interviews, and what I’m sure will be the BEST coverage for Commonwealths and Classics this week. SO THANK YOU AGAIN because Tumblr is awesome and you guys have been the absolute best in supporting the site!!!
