  2. Anon - you know, that's just what I was coming in to post!! Well, to remark that Komova is wearing substantial grips, while Grishina wears nothing (not even the usual Russian cloth thingies). Nice to see the coaches let them use what works for them.

  4. Is it just me, or does Komova have abnormally long lower legs? Don't get my wrong, I love Komova! Surely contributes to her lovely long lines, but only just notcied through looking at the pics.

  5. Hi cough gymnast; LOVE the blog- great work!! I was wondering if you knew why there was no Ivana Hong on the USA team at the Pac Rims? Is she still training, is she injured, is she on Martha's sh!t list? Haven't heard about her in a while!

  7. Cheeto- Ivana tore her ACL at camp a few months ago- right before the American Cup. There's an article catching up with her on insidegymnastics.com... It says that she's still committed to 2012.

  8. Cheeto - Ivana had surgery to repair her ACL not long ago.

  9. They are lovely. I hope that they do not get broken on the way to 2012. Am looking forward to seeing them there.

    I think that Ivana injured her ACL at one of the Karolyi camps, so she will be out for quite a while. I wonder what she will do now. If I were her, I would get a college scholarship. NCAA would suit her.

  12. Hailie, the Russians at Pacific Rim were Ksenia Afanasyeva, Anna Rodionova, Maria Stepanova and Yulia Inshina. Inshina sadly didn't compete.
