Are going to be here very soon. I’d like to watch the meet again to process everything that happened, my favorite parts and such.
I will go ahead and say that I was totally shocked to hear about Wieber’s crash and burn in the Juniors division. She has been totally dominant every time I see her compete, but she seems to get these horribly timed, drawn-out injuries, so I hope she gives her ankles the time off that they need. This is kind of a tangent, but about five years ago I used to play on a co-ed soccer team, and once I rolled my ankle pretty badly. I gave it a few weeks off and it was mostly better but it continued to nag me off and on until I quit. It wasn’t until about 8 months after that that I finally realized, “hey, my ankle doesn’t hurt anymore! So THIS is how my ankles are supposed to feel!” It is crazy how long your feet and ankles take to heal up properly, but you have to do it, otherwise you’ll just keep getting these little knocks that eventually turn into big things. Anyways, her BB routine is up on Gymnastike and boy is it scary. Her ankles are wobbling the whole time, I felt awful for her, that must have been a terrible mental exercise for her during that routine!
Glad to see Kyla Ross defend her title well though, and I was also happy to see dear old Brossy get her first National title. Even if Sloan had been competing AA, I still think Bross would have taken it. The girl is solid, what a competitor! She has the mental strength to take her all the way, for sure, she knows how to make corrections mid-move without giving away too much in deductions, and I LOVE LOVE LOVE how she fights for every tenth on her landings! Love it!!
So like I said….more thoughts coming soon. Plus pictures! And maybe some routine clips? :)
