    2020 OG Gymnastics Thread: The Takedown In Tokyo

    What if she scratches all around as well? You are going to sit there and defend her when there is another gymnast ready to go?

    2020 OG Gymnastics Thread: The Takedown In Tokyo

    You can call me a tool all that you want, I'm not the one who left my team hanging.

    2020 OG Gymnastics Thread: The Takedown In Tokyo

    She can file a lawsuit but pulling out of the team competition is evidence enough of "injury" to substitute her.

    2020 OG Gymnastics Thread: The Takedown In Tokyo

    After what Simone did in the Team event, I think she needs to be pulled from all of her events. I'm a little over this Naomi Osaka drama and for her to ditch the team because of mental pressure and feel there would be no repercussions from this is outrageous. Suni is ready to step up and be an...

    2020 OG Gymnastics Thread: The Takedown In Tokyo

    I'm glad she did it. They probably weren't happy because they wanted complete control of her but we all know what happened when the Federation had complete control of the selection process. I actually like this individual route and it is a shame that they aren't going to keep it. I think the...

    2020 OG Gymnastics Thread: The Takedown In Tokyo

    Jade didn't take herself out of the running. They could have put her on the team and "forfeited" the spot that she had travelled all over the world to earn. There was a nasty news article on how "selfish" she was, however looking at the quality of her gymnastics, she should have been on the...

    2021/2022 Canadian Pairs: News and Updates

    They look really great together. From what they have shown so far, this a much more attractive pairing than the previous one he had with Megan Duhamel. I think they will be very popular in shows.

    Aljona Savchenko has been released to the USA to continue her pairs career

    I guess it's kind of premature. The footage of their side by side jumps looked encouraging. I don't know much about the guy's skating, but the few singles videos he has posted of his skating look very promising. He's a good jumper, tall and he has nice style. We keep talking about her as if she...

    Aljona Savchenko has been released to the USA to continue her pairs career

    She might not even be thinking about another Olympics. She may just want to compete for a few more years at a World level. She already accomplished an Olympic gold medal and world titles. She's had the past 4 years off from competing and she clearly does not feel fulfilled. She may just want to...

    Aljona Savchenko has been released to the USA to continue her pairs career

    He has singles videos out there. He jumps well for a tall man and has a triple axel. i would say that he may have an easier time landing triple jumps than the average pair skater. I’m not a pairs expert but she looked a little rusty on the lift. I don’t know if she has been able to do high...

    Aljona Savchenko has been released to the USA to continue her pairs career

    They were having trouble on it. Really it doesn't look like anything out of the ordinary. It seems as if they have really good ice conditions. They practically had the ice to themselves. In the stroking footage they only shared the ice with one other pair.

    Aljona Savchenko has been released to the USA to continue her pairs career

    I hope all is fine between them. Judging from Liam's and his father's earlier comments, that video really took them by surprise. The Twitter storm that followed and the speculation doesn't help either.

    Aljona Savchenko has been released to the USA to continue her pairs career

    Off the subject but Nureyev and Fonteyn were dynamite. Would be fantastic if Aljona could replicate that passion on ice. Interested to see what comes of this pair. His baggage notwithstanding, I think it was smart move on her part to pick someone a lot younger since his shoulders and back may...

    Aljona Savchenko has been released to the USA to continue her pairs career

    Well he used to be a singles skater and from what I’ve seen, he can jump pretty well plus he can lift a woman up. The pairs may appreciate that third spot if it was around for the next Olympics and she still had citizenship issues. Either, she’s not taking away anything from the current pairs...

    US Pairs should be thrilled that they may finally get a third spot.
