A random girl's random gymnastics ramblings.

at least i didn't fall and break my talent.


Chellsie freaking Memmel. 

Instead of blowing up Twitter and having Johnny R. "steal" her training videos to post online, Chellsie has decided to use actual competition as a steppingstone for her comeback.  She has put her money where her mouth is, and is actually out there doing shit, as opposed to just yacking about it.

Respect.

And not only that, she then gives the best interview that I've seen in a long time.  I know she said other things, but all I heard was "Eff you USAG, eff you Marta.  You need shit done?  Well, I'm the poo so take a big whiff."


Word.


The Chinese and Russians know it.  Marta, are you listening?


That has yet to be seen, but you go Glen Coco Chellsie.



Not training 8 hours a day 6 days a week?  No, Marta would not approve.


ZING!

My fear is that she will still end up in a boot sooner rather than later, but whatever.  That was a ballsy interview, and I dug it.  Enough of the "Oh, you know, I just wanted to hit four for four and that's what I did!" 

I get more excited about these "comebacks" as they actually happen.  It's all fine and dandy to whip up the press by SAYING you're doing all of these fabulous things, but I'm more impressed when it actually happens.

  2. You are awesome. Chellsie is awesome. Haters are going to hate on but she clearly knows what she wants to do and I am hoping and praying she's finally found a way to train smart and save her body.
