“Me @ Japan Gymnastics Association after hearing they’ve decided to leave Mai off the team: I was rooting for you, we were all rooting for you! How DARE you!”

“Having news about Mai, Aliya, and Rebecca all in the same week: So I guess we all really did die in 2012 and this is purgatory, huh.”

“RE: JGF leaving Mai off the worlds selection team [and the horrible Sae incident 🙁 ]… Just when you thought you’ve found the perfect, underdog(ish), talented gymfed to root for, they go and decide to hit the stupid juice harder than Sarah Finnegan. Why is everything gym-related terrible?”

“Everyone has some sort of international friendship pairing that they stan, but TBH the truest, best, and most wholesome has to be Ellie Black and Mai Murakami. Their hugs at 2017 worlds were literal best friend goals.”

“Sorry, literally everyone else. Ellie and Mai have the cutest friendship in gymnastics.”

“I love Mai Murakami so much, but come on sis after two years and two world championship fx medals it’s time for a new floor routine”
