A blog for all things gymnastics.
I’m not a a fan of Komova’s bars but it’s funny how I don’t remember people talking about this last year and recently a couple of people have pointed out how she’s not completely laid out sometimes and now everyone is a catty form expert. I’m pretty fucking sure Komova knows what laid out means. And her laid out jaeger is not THAT bad. She’s not a pencil like the chinese but her body position is open. I don’t know what the COP says exactly but to my eyes it doesn’t look anywhere near having to be downgraded. And make your own opinions.
I feel like a lot of people started saying stuff like this after I said that on one day of the Olympics it was close to being piked. But OP here doesn’t have any idea what they’re talking about given that they think Komova has a laid out Tkatchev. It’s a jaeger, ya’ll. Komova’s not trying to lay out her Tkatchev.
shh they’re trying to act smart
but this is priceless lolol
Jaeger/Tkatchev confusion aside, I think more people started complaining about the jaeger after the Olympics because it looked more piked than ever (at least in my casual observation, I haven’t seen all of Komova’s bar sets). In my amateur opinion, it was laid-out enough in 2011 to not question it but in 2012 it was iffy.

I like this much better than just the plain purple. Wouldn’t have minded seeing this in TF.

The only Olympic AA champion in history to not medal in event finals. Just sayin…
Komova didn’t get any EF medals either, so had Komova won and not Gabby, then Komova would probably have been the first Olympic AA champ to not win any EF medals. Gymnastics is changing, and I think it’s going to be increasingly rare that the AA champion medals in EF.

I thought I was the only one! I thought the Swan Lake with the breakdown was pretty neat. It’s a shame she never hit it as well as she could have.

Spent whole night making this render (original photo here)! Uploading this before I sleep. Surprisingly, the most difficult part is not the hair but her toes and fingers.
This made me realise how rusty my PS skills are… :(
I suggest you lower the brightness of the render if you are going to use it, because the stock photo is overexposed. Also, the render looks best with a dark background.
Thanks for making this, now I can drag Vika around my dashboard.

Day 15 - Favourite use of mesh
I love how the mesh and solid fabric are used to create a bodice effect. Bonus points if its symmetrical.
This is basically a collection of my favorite leos. Also, thanks to these pics, I realized that the leos worn by the Russian juniors at Euros this year are different from the ones the seniors wore recently. I still love them both.

Whoever said this … I LOVE YOU
It was Vika who actually said this in the interview with Aliya and
Valentina. The tears they shed at the end of the TF were actually tears of joy because they were still gonna medal despite their major mistakes
Interesting, I didn’t know this until now. I mean, I never blamed them for crying or anything, but now I extra don’t blame them for crying.
