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…

AskedWhy doesn't Yana do difficult body elements? Mamun, Titova and Soldatova all have difficult body elements in their routines.

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.

Askedthen, do you think that Russian is behind all of the corruption? and that's explain why they're always win. :s or they're just another country that love Russia and they want Russia to win every competition?

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.

AskedDo you think that Russian (aka Irina Viner) is actually bought or bribed FIG??? (It's so easy for her to bribe any Federations that even exist on earth because her husband is Alisher Usmanov :s) If not can you explain why Russian gymnasts still got high score or even higher than perfect routine from another gymnasts when they made mistakes??? example : Kanaeva's Ribbon, event final score in Mie 2009.

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.

AskedIs it possible that a rhythmic gymnast writes their sheet with more than 10 start DV (with exceed elements, in case she's fast enough to does it all), she writes it as 10 which the limit is but it's actually more than 10.(please don't be confuse, I don't know how to explain. this is the best I can) In case that she miss or incomplete some elements so she can cover it by doing another elements that she write down on the sheet? if it's possible can you tell me who've ever done this before?

No, you cannot write more than 10 DV just in case.  It wouldn’t count and there would also be penalties.
