Seriously :wall:

Also, He Kexin will not be in team finals.

It's so infuriating, it almost makes me want the US to lose by a couple of tenths just so Marta can deal with the ramifications of 'what if.' Now, I still hope the US wins, I'd just love to see Marta's plan backfire in her face. What ignorance.

Well if history repeats itself for a third time, I bet Marta will be dealing with those kind of ramifications when the US doesn't win the Olympic team title yet again. Maybe not at worlds this year, but I hope karma comes back to her someday, in some way.

Probably, but wow, what a hateful thing to do. Also, having her march around the floor with the team, that doesn't make sense to me.

I wonder if USA Gymnastics will have anything publicly to say about this after the competition ends. It seems disgraceful.

Just watched the Anna Li video and I know it's already been said but is Marta totally OUT OF HER MIND????? Poor girl should have competed in prelims because with Tweddle and He Kexin out of UB finals she could very well have medalled if she'd hit 2 for 2 in prelims and EF. Props to her for still going out and training a routine like this for absolutely NO reason considering Marta apparently isn't aware she's even alive and doing gymnastics in Japan. If I were her I'd have told Marta where to shove it and hit the shops in Shibuya by now! :rolleyes: :wall: :mad: :blah:

Is Martha so cocky as to think that Li's score wouldn't be needed in team finals?!?

Isn't it unethical to have an injured gymnast training full sets even though it's too late to substitute her in the lineup anyway? This whole thing makes me so angry.

Perhaps the most accurate thing I have read today.

Poor Anna Li.

No He Kexin for China in TF. Their already slim chances just evaporated.

Thanks for the links. I lurrrve the first release in Orozco's HB - fantastic! He looks so young too! (Is off to check his age)

Also really liked the Russian FX and Chen's rings.

In my mind, she almost has a legal case for fraud and misrepresentation. Why would she be named an alternate, then an athlete withdraws, causing a situation where an alternate is needed, and she STILL isn't chosen? It's professionally ridiculous, offensive and personally cruel.

I just read Anna's blog entry which broke my heart. She's handling it very well, though.


I guess deep down, I know in my heart I did my absolute best. I couldn’t have asked for more and I know my mom and dad are proud of me. I think that, itself, is a really good feeling. I feel like I reached my goal that I had, since I was 2 years old, of wanting to be like my mom and dad and go to Worlds or Olympics….so I can honestly say I’m truly happy I decided to go for elite again. Im writing this with tears falling down because I gave it my all. And that was the whole point right? I did everything I could that was in my control. As Coach Wooden said “Do not let what you can not do, interfere with what you can do” So I have No regrets! I never gave up. I honestly believed and proved I could nail my routine in my sleep. Also in my heart I know that the scored routine I got at the Ranch was good enough to contend for a medal in individual events if I nailed it Staying on the positive side, look where it got me…I’m currently sitting here in Japan. I’m a US National Team member. I’m a 2011 World Team Member….and 5 of my friends flew to Japan to watch I’m so blessed…..

I think it is ridiculous. I can't figure it out. What is Marta thinking?
1. I won't put Li on the Olympic team anyway so I am getting all the experience I can for the new ones even if we don't win?
2. I am so arrogant that I think I can win this with one hand tied behind my back?
3. Let's see how it goes with 5 like next year?
4. Li worked hard so I will give her an all expense paid front row seat to Worlds?
5. McKayla Maroney and Sabrina Vega's parents have photos of Bela with barnyard animals?
6. All of the above?
