Settling for world championships while waiting for the Olympics #2016

Ride or die Bailie Key


Seriously the most detailed qualification day one recap ANYWHERE. Thank you to warrior-skyscraper and whiptotriple and I’m pretty sure some of the screen grabs I found were from wats-good-gabby!! I legit credited you in the post.

If you find any spelling or grammar errors, please let me know! It took me like 900 hours to write this and that’s the last thing I was thinking about.

(via triplememmel)


This competition kinda became a mess

- Tori’s out
- NZL’s Courtney McGregor who probs could’ve medaled on vault seems to be out
- Downie’s only doing UB/BB
- Canada put Chant in for AA over Merkle
- Trinidad and Tobago went from maybe having 3 gymnasts to zero
- India McPeak is in that moderately injured but cleared to compete position

what. the. eff.

Maybe Australia can win again afterall…

Not everyone can do beam like the Romanians..




if you ask me to make a floor routine, i’ll also provide music.





stop whatever you’re doing and watch this because this girl is not even a junior and is training a 1.5 twisting to immediate double front. You only see shit like that in MAG. CAN SHE PLEASE WIN FLOOR IN YOG?

Totally cool, but it will be very hard to covert that to sprung floor imo.

Yeah and there’s not really a point in competing it since the front layout + double front she already has gives her the same bonus. But still, it’s amazing

she’ll have tough competition on floor with andrade, but i really do want her to medal in ef. her double front is like ivana hong-clean, and her last pass is a DLO.
