News news news...

I know I've been slacking lately. I'm off of school now, so hopefully I can update more often! Lots of news to catch up on here...

1. Shawn and Nastia are both nominated for the Teen Choice Awards! They are both nominated for choice female athlete, and additionally, Shawn is nominated for choice female reality star for Dancing With the Stars. She'll be up against Paris Hilton, Kim Kardashian, and some chick from America's Next Top Model. Good luck to both!

2. Now, some of the most RIDICULOUS news I think I've heard in a long time. The FIG is adding a "kiss and cry" zone to artistic gymnastics. You know, like in figure skating competitions where they'll go and sit with their coaches while waiting for their scores? Yeah. WHY, FIG, WHY? This is completely and utterly pointless. Not to mention that it is going to cast a bad image on the sport. FIG is killing the sport of gymnastics. Murdering it.

3. Dasha Joura is out for the rest of the 2009 season. She needs surgery to repair a ruptured ligament she acquired during podium training in Beijing last year. Bummer. I hope she can make a recovery. :/

4. "Make It or Break It" is set to premiere on Monday on ABC Family. It will be interesting to see how this show turns out. I'm being optimistic for the moment. :]

5. Evidently, a bunch of changes are being proposed in the NCAA gymnastics world. One being that the format of meets is changed to 6 up 6 count, the other being that in the NCAA team finals, only 4 teams compete rather than continue with the Super Six. Hmm. Not sure how I feel about that.


This is relatively tasteless... and somehow relatively humorous at the same time? Hmm.

7. I'm working on a new layout. Should be a good one. ;)
