USA CHOREOGRAPHY 101 with Marta and Alicia...

We have all wondered about the incredible likeness between Asac and her 'mini-me' Aly Raisman.  Strength, power, big skills, and yes, choreography.
Well, guess who was putting the polish on Aly's moves in training today?  And then guess who stepped in to help?  All this to get one pose right.

You can't say they don't work on it.....

  5. haha well they must realize that aly puts like nothing into her choreo and, while the rest of the routine is nice with big skills, the personality & drama in the choreo is seriously lacking.

  6. Note, however, Spanny, that Marta doesn't flex her wrists!!

  8. Oh my god, this is hilarious. The photos with Marta posing are maybe the best thing I've seen yet out of Rotterdam - normally we just get her frowning and staring intently at the scoreboard. Go you!

    (Also, just to point out, Marta has REALLY flexed wrists in the fifth picture down. Just saying.)

  11. Actually, my impression from watching the exchange was that Marta was imitating her to tell her not to flex them. Look at the last photo, where she is showing her how to do it without flexing her wrists. From what I saw, Marta was teling her not to flex them like Alicia did.

  19. The day before TF is a LITTLE late to fix bad wrists. Talk about closing the barn door after the horses have left.
