ANOTHER COMEBACK KID!

Chelsea Davis just tweeted that she finished her first meet in a year-and-a-half.  It "was such a rush" she tweeted, "it can only go up from here!"  I have no idea how performed at the meet.  There are no scores yet, but I know she was competing bars and beam and possibly floor.
I'm really happy to hear that Chelsea is back in competition form.  She told Anne at Gymnastike that she would be back to the all around sometime this year.  It must be incredibly hard to find skills again after eighteen months away.  It is a testament to the value of a solid and deep bond between coach and athlete that Chelsea remains in intense and focussed and is clearly rapt to be back in a sport she clearly loves.



I still kinda wished UCLA had nabbed her, but she'll fit with the gym dawgs, and it looks like they are going to need her.

It will be interesting to see if Chelsea can make any kind of run at international meets.  She still has a year ahead of her before college.  It sure would be nice to see this frank, funny and talented gymnast out there on the mats again. Let's hope Marta agrees.
