Trials day 1. Johnson in lead but not by enough

Trials Day 1 for women

These results look familiar because these are almost exactly your National results. Top 8 are the same. The same over scoring at Nationals was ten fold here and mostly in favor of keeping Nastia Liukin in the running for an AA spot she does not deserve.

Take these routines to the Olympics and Shawn Johnson is leading by a heck of a lot more then .500 so why does USA-Gymnastics keep over scoring Nastia Liukin to the point where even every four year gym fans are noticing?

Nastia is a nice kid but this has nothing to do with nice. If Nastia had not messed up bars Marta Karolyi would have had her winning both Nationals and Trials. It just isn’t fair and it is not a very nice way to treat your World Champion either.

They did this to Shannon Miller back in the 90’s. They did it to Kristin Maloney back in the late 90’s and now they are doing this to Shawn. What do these three gymnasts have in common? They have the results to back up the gymnastics. These gymnasts went on to success at World and the Olympics where as their counter parts while having success it never measured the success of the three mentioned above. Kristen never won a medal but she proved herself for four years. While Atler got the glory Kristen got the results.

Maybe I shouldn’t care. I can’t change this.

Here are some , You should know’s.

:Jana Bieger out scored both Bridget Sloan and Shayla Worley on bars
: Chellsie Memmel was dinged two tenths because the judges said her Jam was not landed in a handstand
:Chellsie had a 6.9 A score on beam
:Shayla competed only bars and beam and was in obvious pain all night long
:Randy Stageberg nailed floor
:Corrie Lothrop was under scored. Getting these scores with no extra help from the judges.

Olympic Trials for US start in 3 days

Naming them the Olympic Trials is pretty much a liberty when you consider Marta names the team but the USOC says you need a trials so you need a Trials.

Mens competition starts in two days but I can honestly say I am not very interested in them. If you think the US trials is fixed then don’t even bother watching the mens. Miles Avery will take Morgan Hamm even if he doesn’t deserve it and the top two men at Nationals could very well not make the team.
