Yikes, just started listening to the Maggie Haney Gymcastic interview and at Riley’s first camp Valeri said, “You’ve done a great job with her body,” because her thighs weren’t touching….
No. I’m pretty sure she said the opposite. Her thighs used to not be touching and now she has more muscle. Be careful with spreading this kind of harmful misinformation.
The way she said it was confusing but she basically said when she came to a camp after a previous developmental camp, Riley looked different and Valeri complimented that. It was made in the context of a discussion on “Brestyan legs” and how this type of training benefits gymnasts.
