I don't know which US gymnast is teh odd-one-out for the tour.  I've
heard thatKerri is joining her 5 teammates on the which one is
not going?  I know that it is either Amy or Jaycie...All the others have
given up their eligibility already.  I do hope that Jaycie and Domi Moc
stay in the sport...  they both have so much more to give!  (And get
from it...)

And of course, like many others, I am interested in the status of the
international gymnasts...which will stay in teh sport, which will
retire, who will be the next to move out of their home country...

I remember Nemov saying that he planned to move to the US after the 1996 that plan still on?  (Will he move near me?  :) )

One more question--which of the international gymnasts speak English?  I
know Cacovean does, along with many of the male gymnasts (Scherbo,
Sharipov), and Piskun...but does anyone know of others?  Please e-mail
me privately with any info on this...

Sorry to everyone!
I had an after-thought to a letter I wrote to Kyle and I can't get his
address back..... Sorry everyone else!!!!!!!!!!!!!

TO Kyle C.

an after-thought to my prevoius letter to you:

 As far as turning over my child to a coach for the length of a
competition...I can also tell you that if I thought any coach put my
child in a dangerous situation, or told her to do anything that she and
/or I did not agree with, I would immediatly go out on the floor and
withdraw my child from the competition. While training, I have called
my daughter from the gym on several occasions because I thought a few
coaches were (and still are) idiots.

Subject: NBC can KMA!

        What's up with this Sh***y coverage?  No men's vault, and no men's
high bar!  Men's high bar is by far one of the most entertaining and
spectacular events in men's gymnastics!  They'd wrather show pommels over
high bar?  To us men. pommels is great.  But to the non-gymnast, men's high
bar is the most popular of the sport.  Look at any men's competition.
Which seats fill up first- pommels, or high bar?  Obviously, NBC has NEVER
been to a gymnastics meet, or they would've covered high bar!
        Listening to Tesh and Dagget are bad enough, but not covering a big
event like high bar is like watching a girl's floor routine with no sound!

        And how about that idiot's comment (Dagget)- "The way I judge how
difficult a move is is by watching the crowd and seeing if they're all
staring and pointing".  Dagget, back in the days, you WERE a good gymnast,
but you need to wake up, quit staring at yourself in the mirror, and get
back in touch with the sport of men's gymnastics!
        Is there someone on this list with NBC we can talk to?  This is
rediculous and obnoxious!

        I don't know about everyone else, but I for one keep my eyes closed
whenever I'm upside down.  Maybe Moceanu can take some notes!  LOL ;-*

Does anyone have the address of a web site with ACCURATE lists of who has
made event finals? Every one I've seen so far (on the web, posted here, the
newspaper) has been slightly different from every other one.

And does anyone know who goes in for Kerri Strug on vault and/or floor if
she cant perform?
