It seems like with gymnastics the peak performance age is actually changing to around 18-19ish. Not just in the US either.
See, I’m not sure it’s possible for the Shibs to take it to 11 because they are siblings, unless they try for a more abstract performance (e.g., Anissina/Peizerat’s humanity/justice theme free dance from 2002, I think).
I really enjoyed the ShibSibs short dance the most of all couples, though I wouldn’t put them ahead of Virtue/Moir. Virtue/Moir’s free dance was awesome as always. I actually though P/C’s free dance was beautiful as well, but again, they had issue with their twizzles there as well.
Honestly, I think the ShibSibs were robbed of silver. P/C were overscored in both programs technically. For example, it looked to me (and others as well) that their twizzles were off. Yet, they received the same executed element score as the ShibSibs. And, let’s not even discuss how Hubbel/Donohue scored more than…
This compilation of everyone’s reactions is actually the best.
Draymond’s reaction was the best!

I’M ABOUT TO GET DRESSED FOR THE MOVIE NOW AND OH MY GAHH I’M SO EXCITED!!!!!!
I don’t disagree with you. I noticed we were much more the novelty than Africans who were also there. Still, I assumed a lot of the nice treatment we received was because of the Olympics.
The outrage isn’t just from the West. It was Chinese citizens who first registered complaints along with Africans from various nations.
Yeah, I visited Beijing during the Olympics and people always ask me how I was treated. I tell them I was treated wonderfully because I went to China during the Olympics.
You are so full of crap. You see all these experiences of racism in this one thread on account of white teachers and you defend it by saying it’s just a few racists here and there. This is the same thing white people do when Black people talk about police brutality. “Oh, it’s only a few bad apples.” Meanwhile, the…
Terrible. I can’t even. I’m sorry you had to deal with that as a child.
That’s cool. It’s just a handle and I keep it pretty anon around these parts.
There are lots of links in this thread on how Black children are over disciplined. You should share those article with her and make a suggestion that she dig deeper into the problem by speaking with the boy and observing the class before she takes any action.
How are you grey over here, Red?
Yes! I listen to “Here we Go” probably on a weekly basis. lol
