    Mustafina now won't be competing in the Stuttgart World Cup in December, apparently it was Grebenkin's decision to withdraw her.

    To be fair all the Russian team have been withdrawn 'to allow them to recover from post-Olympic injuries'.

    That said, it is all very worrying and I'm just glad that Alexandrov is staying on as Aliya's coach!

    I've read a couple things on my facebook feed indicating that Alexandrov intents to continue coaching Aliya, and that she basically doesn't want anybody else to coach her. Here's a small tidbit I found posted on Wednesday:

    Yes, I hear that Alexandrov is staying with Mustafina long-term.

    IIRC he was Produnova's personal coach too, wasn't he?

    A nice article about Canadian gymnast Dominique Pegg in my local paper today:

    If anyone is interested, I've enjoyed following Louis Smith on strictly. He's doing great and coming across as very likeable. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yed5w_nZYEo

    NBC is showing bits and pieces of the Kellogg's tour right now and as much as I love gymnastics (and especially the Fierce Five), I am extremely glad I haven't spent any money to see this tour. It looks like they tried way too hard to be creative and different with the routines but none of it is really working for me. It was fun to see the trampoline folks but a lot of it is a little too cheesy for me. It is nice to see the girls again and know that things are going well for them though. I've also had a few Jake Dalton sightings too so that makes me happy.
    An MLB.com reporter asked what one thing Votto couldn’t do. “I can’t skate or play hockey,” Votto said. “Well, I can skate ... but I can’t stop.”

    I'm watching it now. Douglas is doing a watered down version of her hideous floor exercise. I understand why she's not going for the big tricks, but this routine is so much worse without some great tumbling to distract from the choreo. I rather like the trampoline people. The opening with the Olympic rings is absurd yet boring, except for the rhythmic ladies who did some cool things.

    ETA: I actually preferred it back in the day when these shows featured the gymnasts doing real routines with a bit of music and fancy lighting thrown in. One of the highlights of the 92 show was Miller and Gutsu doing the compulsory floor routine side by side.

    The side-by-side trampoline athletes were fun, with good costumes and lighting to show off their skills.

    I've loved watching him so far! Doing really well considering that everyone else at the top of the scoreboard has previous dance experience, and of course hopefully it will help keep some of the interest in the sport that there was during the Olympics.

    Wouldn't it be fun if him and Shawn could dance together? It would probably be awful due to their lack of combined experience and expertise but it would be fun to see two Olympian dancers together.

    Kyla is done with the tour and is already at camp. I have to say I've done a total 180 with Ms. Ross these past 8 months. I want her to be world all-around champion this year. LOL!
