Omg what do you think will happen with the Russian women's team (and individual gymnasts) with this ban?? 😭 I hope they can prove to be clean and choose to compete under Olympic flag

they’ll just compete under the neutral flag. won’t be able to have the crest/any russian symbols on their leotards. no anthem, but it’s not like gold medals were likely anyway. i don’t think it’ll push mustafina’s retirement decision either direction. 

i feel much worse for the men’s team, with them being favorites for team gold. such a historic moment, but their (possible) win won’t go down in the record books as russia’s. same with nagornyy and dalaloyan in the all-around.

conspiracy theory: komova’s comeback is being funded and sponsored by khorkina in order to avoid aliya winning a third olympic bars title and breaking her record

Sometimes I just go through random pictures and come across something like this and think that there’s good execution …and then there’s Vika.
