The Quad Awards Part One.

everyone’s doing ‘Awards’ now that the quad and Olympics has officially ended, and i’m aware that I can’t hold a candle to most other bloggers so I decided to do things my own way!

I asked you all on twitter who was YOUR winner in each category. Replies were few (but more than expected!) so here we go!

TEAM OF THE QUAD.

This was a tough one! The USA Olympic team was a front-runner, but so were the 2011 team and the 2010 Russians. 2012 European Championship Romanian team were also contenders as well as the Canadian team at the Olympics.

And the gold medal goes to…

The USA!

No surprises there! the team that won the Team finals by over five points and each member preformed brilliantly! Well done USA!

 

 

 

Silver medal goes to.. Romania and Canada (It’s a tie. but due to public demand, there will be no tie breakers)

 

Leotard Of The Quad:

This cannot just be another pretty leotard, this is a leotard worn when history was made. Personally, I was rooting for Aliya’s 2010 WC Leo, but not too many of you were on my side with that one!

And the gold medal goes to…

My gosh! It’s a  tie between two Russian Leo’s both from 2012. I’m just going to declare them both winners, All hail Russia!

Russian EF Leo, Olympics

 

 

 

 

 

 

All Around Champion Of The Quad

There’s only four contenders for this award. Bridget, Aliya, Jordyn and Gabby. All brilliant in their own way and very successful

And the gold medal goes to.. 

Aliya Mustafina! Amazing, elegant, diva and the brightest star in the quad. 2010 were the glory days.

 

 

 

 

 

And the silver medalist is…

2012 All Around Champion Gabby Douglas

The Gymternet 23rd of May

for those of you who have been living on a rock (or idk, not on twitter today) shit went down.

yup, we had a battle greater than Svetlana versus Carly…

better than Russia Versus USA…

better than He and Nastia’s battle on bars….

this was the battle of the Memes. fought by @getagripgymblog and Unnamed GymBlog

(DISCLAIMER! DISCLAIMER!I Don’t want to offend anyone with this blog post, and i’m tote’s neutral in this epic battle)

So, everyone knows @GetAGripGymBlog’s epic tumblr meme account (if you don’t, you need to check it out. HILARIOUS fyeahgymnasticsmemes.tumblr.com)

well,  Unnamed Gym Blog kinda copied her. And Bekah was not happy.

a few heated world were exchanged CALMLY until this:

 

 

And then this:

how to avoid having a gymblog-twitter battle.

1. if you use someone elses picture/meme/idea make sure to give them credit.

2. dont make things personal. keep to the point. (E.X. Slut, skanky, stupid ect,ect…)

3 If you are copying someone else’s idea, be subtle. (don’t use the same background)

4.  Dont bring Afan into it.

This argument got alot of  peoples interest, including mine.

@Fulltwist was at the mens european artistic gymnastics championships, but was refreshing her twitter to keep upto date with this fight and some of the (HILARIOUS) comebacks.

I recommend you get your ass on twitter and have a look for yourself, it has to be seen to believed.

As bloggers i think we’ve all learned a lesson.

“Don’t steal my shit, and we wont have a problem’

 

The Gymternet 4th April

With Europeans, National Qualifiers and Classics all coming up, the Gymternet was pretty busy this week.

By the way, is anyone else getting confused between the American/Covergirl/Secret classics? (yes, I know there is no Covergirl classic any more, but I am going to call the Secret classics ‘The Covergirl Classics for the sake of an easy life.)

Lets see whats going on on Twitter this week!

“@Kyla_Ross96: I changed my password and I still got hacked! #Seriously”

Yes Kyla, you and nearly every other USA gymnast. and I don’t know how you guys managed to get hacked, why did gymnasts, of all people , click in to a link saying  ‘Easy steps to lose weight!’

Katlyn_Ohashi:My dates to prom! What can I say? I’m a player(;”

This is the cutest thing I have ever seen.

 

 

 

@Shawnjohnson “Finished copies of your book are in!! Some should be headed your way soon.” SO EXCITED!”

Whos getting it?

By the way, check out my twitter and/or blog for some quick hits on Europeans this week!
