MODERN-DAY JANE Can I count it as exercise - for ME?
When Leah was about 2 years old, I did a parent/tot gymnastics class with her. If you've never done such a class, here's how THIS one goes, at American Gold(which I chose for its location AND the sele... Posted on 3/16/11 at 2:59 PM
Aly Raisman finished the Olympics in style. The U.S. captain matched Gabby Douglas in gold medals, winning the title on floor exercise Tuesday. Add in the bronze on balance beam from earlier in the day, and she becomes the most decorated of the Fierce Five.
The Americans lived up to their considerable hype and then some Tuesday night, routing silver medalist Russia and everybody else on their way to their first Olympic title in women's gymnastics since 1996.
The Americans just might be able to back up their big talk. While perennial gymnastics powerhouses China and Japan bobbled and wobbled their way through men's qualifying Saturday, the Americans proved they really do have the goods to contend for the gold medal. They didn't count a single fall, and their final score of 275.342 is almost three points ahead of surprising Britain.
Aly Raisman can almost feel the eyes on her as she and her U.S. gymnastics teammates finish their training session. Sure enough, she'll look up and see a couple of heads in the doorway. Russians, usually. Sometimes the Romanians.
Josh Regorrah was a gymnast for several years. The skills he developed as a gymnast have helped him become a standout pole vaulter. And Regorrah is pretty efficient with the vaulting pole in his hands. The Green Wave junior has cleared 11 feet, 6 inches or more in every meet this season. In three meets, he’s cleared 12 feet — one foot higher than his personal record entering the season.
Nebraska enters NCAA Championships as the No. 6 team in the country Nebraska gymnastics coach Dan Kendig catches himself after realizing the lengthy string of praises he heaped on Emily Wong and Lora Evenstad.
China has run roughshod over the men's gymnastics world for much of this century, winning five straight world titles as well as the gold medals at the Sydney and Beijing Olympics. For much of that time, the Chinese had the meet won simply by getting off the bus. They were that much better than everyone else and not only did the competition know it, they freely admitted it.
