BTW...

Yanni- this is the Greek top!


I should also remind you to keep checking up on the Official Rotterdam World Championships website over the next few days, as we begin to post stories and articles.  Some of my pictures from accreditation days, as well as articles will be appearing on the site.  And a bunch of good writers are working on bringing you news over there.  So keep checking it.

  2. I don't know if you have any control over that part of the website, but I just saw a picture of Rebecca Bross with this caption :

    Defending vice world all-round champion
    Rebecca Bross of the USA

    It's on the same page as the article about where to watch Worlds (where, BTW, it is unceremoniously announced that they basically won't provide any kind of live coverage and don't care) and, as far as I know, Bridget won. Whoever wrote this shouldn't be working on a website specialised in gymnastics.. seriously, accuracy much? Or maybe it's the translation? Anyway, I don't know if there's any way you can point it out to someone who can fix it, because that's pretty embarrassing.

    And thank you so much for providing all this coverage, you just made Worlds 1000x better! The Greek t-shirt is so pretty!

  3. Hi, just to let you know, it says 'Defending Vice all-around captain'. The word 'vice' means second, not the winner, so actually that caption is quite correct.

  4. How will we know which articles you wrote; will they say 'by the couch gymnast?'

    thanks and looking forward to your coverage!

  8. I know - I had to laugh at that person too. Just as we in the U.S. have a "vice" president, "vice" refers to the runner-up in gymnastics. I think it's a British thing?

  9. Still an odd caption though. They could have said reining National Champion. I've never seen vice used in that context. Still, I did understand what they meant!
