“I was rewatching the 2012 team final and replayed Jordyn’s amazing vault, and suddenly realized that that was the last amanar she ever competed, and for some reason that made me kinda emotional ;(”

“I have the theory that had Komova won 2011 worlds, 2012 would have been different: -Jordyn might have gotten more valuable and consistent connections in order to get those extra tenths -Komova would have gotten an AA title that may have changed her outlook and pushed her to remain consistent (and not chuck an amanar) This is purely speculative, of course, but is interesting to ponder”

“Still not over Jo Wieber’s “Wild Dances” fx. Her choreo and performance was a pitch-perfect example of how to do contemporary-style artistry on floor (and the music was just awesome in general)! She was so underrated as an artistic floor worker.”

“Jordyn still defends her coach’s decision to put all those crazy combos into her beam routine. She said she didn’t like having all those separate skills in her beam routine in 2011. Fair enough but God there were plenty of ways she could have combined skills and gotten credit for them. Ugh”

“Once upon a time, Steve Nunno was trying to teach Shannon Miller a new vault. Their was failure, tears, and drama UNTIL Steve realized he was trying to teach her the wrong way. He changed his method and Shannon got her vault. I always wonder about when John Geddert stopped trying to help Jordyn Wieber get a second vault. He said it was because ‘she had trouble flipping forward.’ Maybe the real trouble was his coaching combined with his ego refusing to let him switch things up.”

“How come Jordyn never became a vaulter? Her Amanar was so great with a good second vault she easily could of won bronze or silver maybe even gold in 2011 worlds and in 2012 Olympics”

“Chris Brooks working for Jordyn Wieber? I don’t know whether to be happy for them or wonder whether this is a case of favoritism. I hope it’s the former.”
