In honor of historic DL threads such as "Gymnast Gina Gogean" (linked below) and in anticipation of the Olympic Games starting this Friday, I am here to remind all of you Simone Biles ass lickers that I am REAL gymnastics royalty -- who sacrificed for my team and came back from horrible injury (no, not THAT injury, even worse - watch the video at 9:25) to ascend the throne. The fact that they're changing the code of points to devalue some of her moves shows that she's been overrated all along. Fuck her and her entire era of lame gymnastics.
Gymnast Kerri Strug -- "I'm back to talk Olympic Gymnastics"

You never even won a single World or Olympic individual medal, Kerri.

[Sighs] Sounds like Dominique STILL can't accept that without me should never would have won gold. I didn't make you sit down on vaults and blow all-around titles.
I have all that matters -- icon status.

Poor Kerri. Always gym-hopping and playing second fiddle to superior, more popular athletes at those gyms.

And it landed her on Beverly Hills 90210, where she demonstrated absolutely zero acting skills. In fact, she earned negative points.

Don't use me to make some sort of online comeback. I have more World and Olympic gold medals than you have fingers and toes. My "era" of gymnastics is superior to yours in every aspect, cunt.

I refuse to watch OP's video ( I can't stomach gymnastics injuries), but is that the one in which Kerri fell from the uneven bars and sprained her back?

R23, I don't hate her, but that vault was the best thing to ever happen in Kerri's gymnastics career. To this day, people still think she won the gold medal for the U.S., although it later turned out they would have won even with Moceanu's sat-down vaults.

I don't see any official gymnastics Olympics thread, so I guess this one can be it? Also, I have no clue how to discuss this, as I assume most people are going to watch the tape-delayed NBC coverage.
I won't spoil anything, but I'll just say that there are some surprises!

The timing is just awful - the time difference of 13 hours from the east coast makes it hard to watch live and then not everyone is watching or watching the same replay when it's airing at night.

R27, Roza spent her entire life bitching about some, "Unfairness."
Bitch, you were never going to actually compete AA in 1992. You didn't even expect to ever make qualifications. If they didn't replace you with Gutsu, they would have replaced you with Chusovitina. Go bleach your hair again.

I watched some of the Russians and the Spanish on the Floor Exercise earlier and it's amazing how some of the other countries still actually dance and have some choreography... Unlike the Americans who look atrocious just posing and flicking their hands in the air every few seconds.
|by Anonymous||reply 36||July 25, 2021 6:53 PM|
Americans are smart - playing the Code of Points. Why dance if you don't have to? People protest "it's called artistic gymnastics." FIG chose to remove much of the artistry and I don't blame any team or athlete from taking advantage.
Women's floor ex should be like men's. The intermittent "artistic" bullshit and blaring music is just so stupid at this point.

Last night, I stumbled upon NBC's stream of Team USA's qualifying round and watched it. I don't think I've ever enjoyed watching gymnastics that much, and do you know why? There were NO fucking commentators babbling endlessly!
I may not know a lot about gymnastics (watch it once every four years), but I've seen enough over my lifetime that I don't need Kerri Strug (or whomever) to tell me that step-outs are bad, or that someone over-rotated on a landing, or that "She must be very disappointed." (i.e. after falling off the balance beam)
Obviously, I will want/need some expert commentary during the finals -- to inform me about the other teams & gymnasts, and the necessary scores to move up in the standings, etc. But for the qualifying rounds? The relative silence was enjoyable.

I'm American, but I am rooting for the Russians to win team finals. The Americans have been too smug and over-confident. They'll have more meltdowns in the final, giving the Russians an opening.
