A COMMUNITY SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT....

Not really.  It's more of a reverse community service.  The Couch Gymnast is asking you kind, avid gym fans out there to please let me know as soon as you see Romanian National vids up on Youtube (oops)?  Pretty please?  I need to fill all the gaps my horrible internet streaming made!  Particularly if you find a miraculously wonderfully kind soul who has put it up as parts and not just routines!?




(I was fortunate enough to catch a glimpse of Larisa Iordache's triple twist off beam, though she froze in mid air for a good minute in my streaming and i heard her floor music while the visuals showed a freeze frame of some kids in the crowd!)


Also, can anyone tell me where to find a video, or even just a bloody photo of this Belorussian upstart/wunderkind Galina Ivanets?  I'd really like to see her perform.

    She looks a beautiful gymnast with great potential. Hopefully she can get her double arabian back and increase her difficulty/ consistency on other events because I think together with Zaitseva she could do great things for Belarussian gymnastics.

  6. Wow, thank you so much for the Ivanets links, and by virtue, the Zakharova Cup links! Yay! I should have thought that she would be 'Halina' as well as 'Galina' because of the cyrillic alphabet. Anyways, thank you very, very much.
