Hi there. Just call me S. I am an 19 year old university student in Florida. I am a perfectionist stuck in a B student's body. I am a retired gymnast. Men's and Women's Artistic gymnastics is my obsession but I also love Rhythmic, Ballet, Dance and everything to do with the Olympics. I'm a big team Ukraine and Russia fan, but I do post about the other countries' athletes as well. Oleg Verniaiev is my favorite male gymnast and I want him to win all the medals. This is also my personal blog, so sometimes I post stuff about me and what I'm doing. I check out everyone that follows me. Proud Slytherin, and citizen of Afanastan. My football teams are Paris Saint Germai, Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund. If you want to know more feel free to message me. Thanks for visiting!

USA Gymnastics changes Scoring System - Full Twist




Domestic bonuses? Do not like.

But do gymnasts really need more motivation to stick..? I’m pretty sure they gun for that already.

It’s added to the D score what the shit?

I’d be kind of fine with it if it was added to the E score but come on dude omfg.

I don’t know how to feel about this. I understand wanting to give incentives to stick (even though I thought not getting a deduction was enough of an incentive) but Idk I’m in the middle on this one.

I think overall that changing the code just because of domestic meets is just overall stupid because I feel like that just makes the whole job more difficult/confusing for the judges who sometimes have hard enough of a time doing the job they already know. 

But at the same time I think that if USA gymnastics is so keen on getting girls to stick they should have them do skills that they can do with a stick every time instead of throwing hard stuff you can’t stick. 

And I don’t think that putting more pressure on the girls to stick stuff that is not safe to stick is a good idea. We really don’t need any more torn ACLs thank you very much. And we don’t need people landing funky with feet apart in a crouch just to get a .1 stick bonus when you lose .3 for landing like a frog.

Anastasia Grishina update 23.04.2014

She just came back from the surgery and she feels not very good...for now. Her leg hurts very much.
But it's just few hours after surgery, I think it should be like that. But I'm not a doctor : (

So… some 12 year old kid got loose on the internet.

This is going to be my only post where I actually respond to comments like this.

Now let me tell you about my past in gymnastics, so next time you judge me, you actually know something about it.

I started when I was 7, in a selected group in a gym called UTE. I learned good basics, the group was really well built up, with many training hours. Due to personal reasons I had to change clubs from UTE to JDSE and ended up in KSI. During the changes my group fell apart, my training hours got less and I lost interest. I have never been talented, and the girls in my new group had really bad influence on me. I got really lazy and at age 12, I quit. It was my own decision, and thinking back I wish I’ve worked harder, but that’s the way it turned out to be.

The summer after I quit, we moved to Iceland, and I decided to give gymnastics another shot, and I started looking at it from another perspective. In Hungary, only the talented girls got attention, and it was all about winning medals and training hard. But in Iceland, it was all about having fun at the gym, and doing what makes you happy. By starting again, I did not have high expectations. I did not spend half of my days at the gym, sweating, working hard and doing routines over and over again.

I have always been aware of my lack of strength, execution, and hard work.

In 2007, at age 15, a pair of Russian coaches took over the group, and started coaching me. The trainings got harder, and I started losing interest again because that was just not what I wanted. But I didn’t give up, because I still loved gymnastics.

During the years I got stronger and I improved a lot. I learned all of my skills between age 16-18 (which I think is pretty impressive), with couple of exceptions. And now i’m here, at age 21, keeping up the level I’ve been on, and I couldn’t be more happy about it. I train 2-3 hours a day, 6 times a week and I have plenty of time for school, friends, and anything I want to have time for.

I’m sorry that I still had an opportunity to make it to 2 World Championships and other big competitions, but even if I haven’t made it so far, I’m satisfied about where I am. I might not be part of the best gymnasts in the World, but I still have more skills than most of them.

And when you think people watch me and laugh at me, you are very wrong. Because unlike you, 12-y-o anon, those gymnasts know that in counties like mine, we don’t have the opportunity to train 7 hours a day, 6 times a week with the best coaches in the World, growing up in the gym. But what we can do, is smile, and show everyone how much we enjoy what we are doing.

Cause that what’s really matters. I’m glad you can do all those skills with good form, but I think these couple of lines of bragging were very unnecessary.


agnes you are wonderful and talented and intelligent and don’t let some no-name stupid ass anon talk shit because i dont care if they can do a double arabian because they can double arabian the fuck outta here since they obviously dont have any home training or manners and need to sit the fuck down! i think it is amazing that you handled this so well and so politely and i aspire to be as talented and well-spoken as you! :)

And can I just add that gymnastics it’s not all about being the best, it’s about a love for the sport.

That anon sounds like some phony wannabe who blurted out every skill they know to try to make themselves sound believable.

If you were that good at 12 years old, we would know who you were, phony anon. Keep dreaming ;]

^^ thats exactly what I thought when I read this. 

Oh and anon, you may think Agnes is a sh*t gymnast which is only your opinion but I can assure you, you’re a sh*t person and that is fact proven by your own actions.

that arabian double with an extra 1/2 twist should be named after her

it’s already called an andreasen in the elite CoP

I’m aware. All I meant is that she does it so well i wish it could be named after her but I know that it never will be.

Anonymous : Okay I'm honestly really not buying that whole "Simone's not built to have a stellar toe point" argument. I naturally had feet that looked like crumpled bread loaves when I would attempt anything close to a toe point, especially on straddled Tkatchevs. Ballet training, which my coach suggested, helped immensely. Simone may be trying, but it's clearly not a priority for her or her coaches. Neither are most of the non-technical "aesthetic" parts of her gymnastics.


I don’t think it’s really at all your right to decide whether or not Simone and her coaches are making aesthetic parts of her gymnastics a priority unless you are in the gym with her day in and day out.

I’ve seen a lot of improvement in her aesthetics in the 3 or 4 years I’ve followed her career - her leaps have improved immensely in terms of flexibility and in terms of toe point, and her presentation on FX has come a long way as well.

Just because Simone isn’t taking ballet lessons doesn’t mean she’s not making aesthetic improvement a priority.

And I don’t really care whether or not you “buy” that Simone isn’t built to have good toe point. Some gymnasts are never going to have good toe point because of the way their feet are made. That doesn’t mean they can’t make improvements - they can. But Simone could take 30 hours of ballet a week and never come close to having, say, Grishina’s toe point. That you can’t tell she’s improved says more about your bias than it does about Simone’s level of effort.

Your feet are not Simone’s feet.
