Yes, she fell at the 08 American Cup trying to stick the vault. In 07 she fell on her beam routine.

Well at least she didnt give up on that vault, she seemed to have it down pretty good besides that side step at the olympics.

She tried, and fell on her backside, but I would love to see her stick it atleast once.

I thought I heard and I could be wrong, is that the new rules will not reward the more difficult routines as much. They are pushing the grace and stuff more. Unfortunately it is Shawn's risk taking that I love about her.

double double off UB is a double backflip with two twists off uneven bars i believe...but what is an Amanar?

Shawns vault a 2 1/2 Twisting Yurchencho

Simon Amanar was the first to compete it so its called the Amanar Smile

This still doesn't quite explicitly answer what an Amanar is (for those in the know, it did implicitly) - I realize first one to do it in (international) competition gets the move named after them... according to about.com (see Amanar definition ), an Amanar is:

"It is a Yurchenko-style vault, meaning that the gymnast performs a round-off onto the board, a back handspring onto the horse, and a flip off. In the Amanar, the flip off the horse is a 2.5 twisting layout back flip.

Also Known As: Yurchenko 2.5"

Heres the VT right here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qQlGo4MWnCU
Sorry for not making it understandable
I guess sometimes I just asume all Shawn fans know every skill in every routine lol

Hahahahaha
I left the gym in 2005 but started a new career called couch gymnastics
I'm doing it right now and will be doing it all this weekend lol
With scAM on this weekend I will be sitting out the couch watching that
I will also be going on to Youtube to get videos of the USA vs. Japan meet
Just to give you a heads up
I may be on here during 4th period tommorrow seeing how the competition is going
I'll try not to get yelled at like yesterday by my teacher lol
This time I'll wait till I'm finished with all my work Smile
But anyways I guess I speak the language of gymnastics
I will be watching NCAA and I'll be like come on you can do that gienger or how did you just fall on that BHS, Tuck combo lol
I could do that with my level 9 skills haha
I guess I need to get a life and quit getting injured lol

I'm at home now lol
But they block youtube because its not "educational"
Everything we go on is supposed to be educational
Only reason I could go on to here today was because I was done with my work...
USA vs. Japan is the meet that is happening on the scAM podium today
Kamerin Moore, Halie Mossett, Bridgey Caquatto, Mackenzie Caquatto are all competiting
I have no idea who from Japan is competiting it hasnt came out last time I checked...
I guess I better go find results...

Oh its a good one I didnt get it a first also...
But the competition is setup for the US to win to its thought to be a scam
The US selects there best to come then they invite people from other countrys
They only invite people who dont have a chance at winning
This way USA thinks they have the best team even though the best arent really there from all around the world
So its thought to be a scam...
