House Texas Dreams
The time has come for WOGA’s seat of the south to be challenged and House Texas Dreams to the west is a hotbed of burgeoning talent. A sunny, bright, breath of fresh air, Head of House Kim Z and her counterpart Chris run a gym brimming with success. Their girls are happy, sturdy, well rounded, and numerous. They are well paced as well as expressive and invested in their routines. If there are ambitious goals hanging in the air at House Texas Dreams, the girls aren’t encumbered by them. Support and enthusiasm run rampant amongst proteges and coaches. Although they’ve garnered a healthy amount of attention and accolades already, there ascends a young star that could carry the torch for House Texas Dreams to it’s first validating victory. Bailie Key, a mere junior, has swept every major competition this year, and wasn’t too shabby the year before. The fruit of Kim and Chris’s labor of love, Bailie stands to capture the golden crown of the quad; the Olympic AA title. Although, in true House Texas Dreams fashion, she shows no signs of buckling under pressure or unnecessary routines. The cheery confidence of Bailie, and House Texas Dreams, have become beloved by the masses, and their flame only burns brighter as the quad comes to a close in 2016. WOGA beware, as girls from Texas Dreams grow strong and hungry with each passing day, there may only be room for one southern seat.

Podium Training for the 2014 Pacific Rim Championships
Her little fish face here is too cute
the russian team for rio is going to be aliya with two hip replacements in a wheelchair, a jar containing vika’s ashes after she trips one time too many on the mats, and a picture of afan from 2008
So basically, it’s true: Vika is injured again. Nastya received a question about the nominative list, and says, paraphrased, that Komova injured her ankle in training after Nationals. She will be needing surgery and will go to Germany at the end of april, right after Nastya gets her surgery. She also adds that she would not have answered the question if Vika wasn’t ok with people knowing.

Her bars are amazing and exciting. I love the innovative combinations - the Ono-Markelov-Geinger and the Tweddle-Ezhova-Van Leeuwen. Simply amazing. What a BAMF.
Oleg Verniaiev sticking a Dragulescu.
Impressive. It’s all I can say.
Oleg’s Dragulescu is one of may favorite things in this entire sport when he does it like that.
Wait, there used to be a little machine to type in your vault number?
