SAD NEWS...


(pic from gymbox)


According to my Itlian correspondant, Giulia, it looks like Paola Galante may be making her exit from International gymnastics.  Apparently the very elegant and lithe Paola, whose grace and felxibility we have all enjoyed over the last few years is getting too tall for the sport, making the difficulty of her routines harder and harder to accomplish.  We will probably hear something concrete in the next few months.

  1. she's always looked like a rhythmic gymnast to me, and it made me think she had some rhythmic training. Maybe she ought to give RSG a shot. She's got the turns down!

  2. according to Giulia, she used to be the same size as Nastia, but has grown as tall as Izbasa. That must be tough, because Paola is far more willowly than Sandra.

  6. Yeah, there is no way you want to fall from that position. She must have scraped her leg on the way down! Such a crazy photo!
