Happy New Year from Gym Chat! I hope everyone has a blessed and wonderful 2009. I'm just crossing my fingers and hoping that it's a better year than 2008. :P

Within a few days, I'll be reporting on the new senior elites this year. Don't miss it! :]

With love...

I guess I'm a little slow on the uptake, because this was posted a month ago on Sam's official website.

Sam has moved gyms from DeVeau’s to Sharp’s Gymnastics in Indianapolis. Her coach is now Marvin Sharp.

Sam’s coach at DeVeau’s, Peter Zhao, is moving to China to help out with his family business, so Sam needed an elite coach in order to accomplish her goals for 2009. Sam was at DeVeau’s for 14 years and was coached by Zhao for 8 years.

Sam is looking forward to training with her Olympic teammate Bridget Sloan and being coached by Marvin Sharp!

Hmm. I wonder how that will work out for her. Only time will tell...

Shawn and Nastia Heart Uggs

So Shawn and Nastia made some pretty Ugg boots for UGG Australia’s sixth annual Art & Sole Collection, which raises money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

Who's do you like better? I can't really decide. I think Nastia's are classier, but I like Shawn's too! :]
