Sometimes living in Australia is good, but when there is something major going on in the US gymnastics world, it's not. So I go to sleep last night and wake up to the Press Release in my email about Kyla Ross leading Day 1 of the juniors. And, of course, I am, like "What the...?" Of course Kyla is terrific, but where in hell is Jordyn Wieber? She doesn't have bad competitions, does she? I was actually, this is gonna sound bad, kind of relieved to find out she was injured. That made far more sense.
Then I found out she fell of beam a bunch of times, and that was weird, then I heard about the ankles. That made more sense.
What can I say? Poor kid.
She has rotten timing, doesn't she? She's healthy for the Minor Majors, as I like to call them- Pac Rims and Scam Cup, but never for the Nats. It's sad. I hope she has a quick recovery.
That said, congratulations to the talented Kyla Ross and Katelyn Ohashi for tying up first and second on day 1.
I assume Sabrina Vega had a bad, bad day? Though she did come second on floor where she shines. That's something.
