LACKLUSTRE SENIOR CLASSIC....

Mattie Larson


So, Mattie Larson won the Cover Girl Classic.  Good for her. But from simply reading the live blogs comments all over gym town, it seems it was a pretty sad sack Senior meet.  And yes, before anyone else tries to point it out, I do know that the top AAer's were not doing all-around.  Bross still didn't do brilliantly in the events she did compete in. What happened to Raisman?  Apparently even she was a mess.  This may not be a wonderful worlds for the US.

  1. Raisman tried throwing an Amanar and totally bombed it--only got credited for a TERRIBLE Yurchenko double attempt. She wasn't her best on the other events, but she wasn't a mess by a long shot. It's no big deal. Classics is a place to try out new skills (and for the most part fail) before the real competitions start. Most of the top girls that would actually make the Worlds team didn't even do all 4 events tonight because they didn't need to...

    With that being said, the meet still sucked, even compared to most other Classics.

  2. U.S. should be fine for Worlds. Top gymnasts didn't do all-around today.

    US will be fine. Asac is back, big time (better really albiet 2 events). Hunter had flashes. The bubble girls got some taste of the orange to help motivate them. Williams was not there but word is she is on track and vaulting well. There will be a great battle for the spots. Nationals...and then Marta hell camps.

  6. Becca's UB was actually far from lackluster...it was a really, REALLY nice set. Had she not tanked on the Patterson dismount, she would have won BB easily. Jus' sayin...
