Nastia Liukin wins the AA!! She is the 2nd WOGA gymnast in a row to win the Olympic all-around title (Carly Patterson in 2004 Athens Olympics). Nastia's teammate Shawn Johnson wins the silver, and China's Yang Yilin wins the bronze. Nastia was amazing - she stuck her 1.5 yurchenko vault (where did the execution b score deductions come from?!), stuck her beam (same on the b score?!) and stuck[ Read More... ]

USA diving Olympic team named after a selection camp too: http://www.gymchat.com/messageboards/showthread.php?p=75919#post75919 So it's not so special to gymnastics. Chellsie Memmel's just fruit for dinner is harsh. She does look like she has a heavier body type than Nastia Liukin, so maybe that's why Nastia's diet seems different and mroe normal according to that AT&T fluff piece on her.[ Read More... ]

Not all about the scholarship. Who wants mean coaches?! [quote]"I pretty much did it for the (scholarship)," Weyer said. "Getting a scholarship for competing in gymnastics was something I always wanted. "I liked it till I got there, then I didn't like it anymore.

At the 2007 Worlds the more experienced older gymnasts - like Catalina Ponor and Elena Zamolodchikova - didn't do the robot walk but the younger girls newer to the international elite scene totally did. It looks really unnatural and robot-like.

You would probably guess the popularity for women's gymnastics is more than men's gymnastics - women's gymnastics is televised more often and earlier to the actual competition than men's, like for the Visa Championships: [quote]NBC Sports is broadcasting action from the women
