Simone finally posted that snapchat video onto Instagram and I’m going to watch it a thousand times. I wonder if this was another while-Aimee-was-out moment…

Lala yusifova announces her retirement on Instagram :o
NOOO NO NO NO NOOOOOO
THIS IS SO UNFAIR
NOOOOOOOAhh yes Boyonka’s retirement was such a pity too >
Oh great. I decide to check in with the gym world today and apparently there were nudes leaked and Lala is retiring. Well, fuck.

She does have some good elements in her routine worth .50-.80’s. It’s just her routines tend to draw more attention towards apparatus work vs. a gymnast like Rizatdinova who highlights body difficulty.
Ready for a fight
I do believe that there are under the table agreements between officials. And a lot of turning a blind eye from those who don’t directly collude. And that the perks aren’t always a gold medal.
Russia also isn’t magically getting medals. They have a ridiculously amazing training program and an immense talent pool. They consistently turn out medal worthy gymnasts.
Big competitions get more criticism because of, well, how big they are. But there is also some shadiness going on at national comps, where Russia is nowhere in sight. It’s basically just officials being awful in general.
Maybe they have some secret on writing excellent DV sheets. Or political coercion. Or sheer reputation and ass kissing. I have no idea hahaha
I’m more annoyed at there being corruption to begin with rather than who is getting perks. The whole “it takes two to tango” cliche and the fact that so many insiders were quick to keep their mouths shut. It’s bigger than one country or person and is sadly expected by so many fans.
No, you cannot write more than 10 DV just in case. It wouldn’t count and there would also be penalties.
