On tonights broadcast Tim Dagget quoted Nastia saying to him that she was going to continue in gymnastics so she could beat Shannon Miller’s world championship medal total that now stands at 9 (they are tied). He said she said she really wants that tenth medal.
All I can say to this is wow. How arrogant and ignorant can one person be to make such a statement as this in the first place. Even if she didn’t know big mouth Tim would repeat it arrogance is one thing I hate in a sports person.
I always loved Nastia attitude and never had a problem with her bitch face (It used to crack me up) but these comments are just way over the top.
Miller’s medal count has AA Gold twice and she is a world champ on 3 of the 4 events. She could have won vault in 94 if she didn’t fall and she competed with some of the best gymnasts of all time. Nastia has one silver AA medal and some bars and beam medals . Her competition was weak. The medal count may be the same but the quality of competition is not.
Looks like I hit a nerve. Name calling comments and tell me to f off because I think Nastia’s ego needs to be put in check will not be posted especially not by Natsiafan’s full with e-mail and websites. Some of you people border on insane and need to flood other message boards with comments like these because here you will be banned.
Disagree respectfully and I have no problem.
Kerri Strug didn’t need to vault for the team to win and she has admitted in the past that she did that second vault to make the AA final. (Dominique Moceanu fell on both vaults and while over scored on all 3 other events she still was in line to make that AA final until the fall) but history gets written so it will sell in the media and that brings us the vault heard round the world.
While appreciative of Kerri’s effort vaulting on an injured ankle (even though the real injury didn’t happen till after the second vault) real gymnastics fans know that with out the effort of the entire team there would be no Hall of Fame for the Magnificent 7 today so Congratulations to the entire team for what they are about to accomplish .
I remember when the voting was going on. The Dubbed Mag 7 were up against the 1992 dream team in basketball from the 92 Olympics and I like most felt they had no shot of being voted in but they were. (seriously though this is a Hall of Fame not a popularity contest so having the fans vote makes very little sense. How does the 1992 Dream team not get voted in?)
