It's okay, you are among other freaks here Wink

although for him that was almost nice, i've never heard him talk without either insults or threats...i just found it strange that in the space of about a minute he would come in my room, insult me without me being there, and then leave confused lol

he sounds like he was making the rounds, you know, one insult per person. he doesnt have the time to hang around your room giving YOU all of his insulting attention. get over yourself Razz

Dont worry I dont have much personal experience in the elite world...
I was a member of TOPS for 3 years but that my only experiece on Karolyi soil
We had one Olympian from my gym and the time I was there and even at that he had moved to train Colorado Springs at the time
He also wasnt there when he made the Olympic team so our gym isnt thought to be an "Elite" gym
Only a gym which started out an Olympian
I get rude encounter on WWGYM all the time
People seem to dislike me there since I'm younger and dont have the best vocab...
People are a bit nicer to me on intlgymnast....

i havent been on international gymnast before

so i think the american cup is this weekend (the 21st). who do you favor to be a stand out performer? i feel like there will be a lot of opportunity for newcomers.

i hope that bridget sloan does well. i liked her in beijing, even though vault in TF was the only event she did, not counting prelims. i thought she did well under pressure.

I don't know who all will be there so i'll wait to make my decision till I see the line up. And Bridget had to compete in all 4 events at Beijing seeing how Chellsie could only do bars and Sam was out with a broken ankle.

if you go to a big college that competes ncaa division 1 and has a big gymnastics program, you might get to meet a former elite gymnast!

and i am pretty sure that bridget sloan competed all four events during qualifying, but only vault in team finals.

Bridget had to have competed all 4. 2 gymnasts not competing in 3 of the 4 and Alicia can't do bar so that kinda forced them to use Bridget as an AA for the TF. I could be wrong I havn't seen the TF video since just after the Olympics ended.

I guess i should believe you since you know what you are talking about more than i do.

You can watch the team final on the olympics website, i did like a week ago for no real reason.

Kourney Kupet is one of the 2 non-elite gymnasts I want to meet, other than her I would love to meet Kristina Basket.
