  1. Yay, I'm so happy to see this new issue! Amy's diary is really interesting, because her classes are exactly like mine. If she hadn't mentioned the place or name of the trainers, I would have thought she trains at the same place. It's lovely to hear about gymnastics as I do it, not in the competitive world where any 8 year old can do more than I can.
    I hope Amy's ankle will get better soon.

    PS: I assume someone else will already have pointed out by now that one of your links (Hard knocks) doesn't work.

  2. I am so happy so many people answered "Lilia Podkopaeva" to yout question. Never had the time to answermyself but I am glad she was everybody's(allmost) favourite.

  3. I came across your website from website since you were listed on the right hand side. I am so happy that I found you. I really enjoyed reading both magazines and learned so much about international gymnasts. I even looked up some of the names on youtube and enjoyed lots of new routines that I have not seen previously. I will be sure to come back and visit and look forward to your third magazine issue.

  4. Just a few observations for your quizz: Pegg did not win Nadia Invitational, it was Vakulik..and Dobre won the all around in 1987.

  5. I love your blog, but to be honest I think the magazine is a big mistake. The articles are scrappily written, and there are numerous mistakes. Among other errors, this statement is incorrect (and grammatically terrible!) "Zamolodchikova and was coached by her mother". Round Lake and Dinamo were clearly not the only gyms to survive - look at the results from the Russian National championships and you will see gymnasts representing clubs from all over the country. Round Lake is not even a 'club' per se, but the national training centre.

    I'm not trying to be negative, I just don't want to quality of your blog brought down by the magazine idea, and I seriously think you should re-consider it.
