I just realised that if aliya wins 4 medals, regardless of their colour, at worlds she’ll be the 5th most decorated gymnast at the world championships period
Loving how much Mckayla love there is in the Gymternet
"Always, always follow your dreams and never give up on them. If you’re following your dreams, you’re doing something you love and that you believe in yourself for. So many kids are told that they can’t do something or they shouldn’t do something and it’s really sad because it’s what they want to do and what they love. But you have to work hard at it; that’s the most important thing." - McKayla Maroney
Pan Am 2014 FX Medalists
1. Mykayla Skinner (USA)
2. Jessica Lopez (VEN)
3. Yesenia Ferrera (CUB)
It was an interesting final for sure. I’d watch Ferrera without a doubt. She’s one to watch. She’s like Daiane dos Santos and I think those landings killed her. Lopez and Hypolito were rocks. Hypolito was especially impressive. Desch fell on double pike :( Torres has pretty leaps. Galera had two falls to her face :( Skinner was her pretty usual self - DTDLO was in bounds. Good control on landings. Her leaps on floor are a million times better than beam.
sorry if this has been posted already but STOP WHATEVER YOU’RE DOING AND WATCH THIS GIRL’S FLOOR ROUTINE. Her name is Yesenia Ferrera and she’s from Cuba. Now, maybe you’re better gym fans than me and you already knew her but I’m just finding out about her after pan ams and I’M SO EXCITED BECAUSE SHE’S SOO GOOD. She does a full twisting DLO, a DLO (little bit pikey), a 2.5 + front layout and a double tuck. She’s so insanely powerful, all of her leaps are soooo high and her choreo is pretty great too. She also has a difficult bars set that includes a clear hip 1/1 + tkatcev, a hindorff and a full twisting DLO dismount. Her beam routine is pretty good too, nothing spectacular here but she performs lots of aerials connected to jumps and some high leaps. And if my eyes are not failing me her vault looks like a rudi (but the video is kinda blurry so tell me if it’s not)
There’s obviously LOTS of room for improvement in her excecution but I don’t care I LOVE HER
Not only is her tumbling really powerful, she also hits her split leaps so well!
MINE IS CRAPPY
WHAT CARRIAGE ARE YOU IN!??!?!
COME TO THE BACK
THE SLYTHERINS HAVE HACKED DUMBLEDORE’S WIFI
Thanks to the Ravenclaws, guys.
The password’s “AL0H4M0R4”
Pass it on.
I’m just shocked how gymnastike cannot even begin to possibly see where they went wrong.
They are like a child who punches another kid for no reason and then when people tell him he was wrong they are like “No I’m not!!1!1!”
I’m pretty sure if this many people…
Mykayla Skinner averages a 15.037 at the Pan American Games vault final.
It’s 2089. all cops have been replaced by genetically modified dogs that let children pet them, help old ladies cross the street, chase down criminals, never eat donuts, bark at cat-callers, analyze dna, easily track down murders, pee on white collar criminals, and tear the faces off of rapists. utopia has been reached.
How was this accomplished you ask?
Well its simple
Dogs are colorblind
