Ooh, Rachel Gowey training a shaposh full to mixed grip!!! It looks like she’s doing a toe-on so it’s really a Maloney full which Mustafina does. Actually I think Mustafina does it to mixed grip too, or did at Worlds last year? I need to rewatch dat shit.
The Maloney full is the Seitz, isn’t it?
Yup! I always forget if Seitz does it with toe-on or clear hip but I’m 99% sure it’s a toe-on. But she doesn’t do it to mixed grip, though I guess that doesn’t make it a different skill because if it did, the mixed grip version would have probably been submitted by Mustafina last year. This would only be a ‘new’ skill done by Gowey if she’s doing it from a clear hip, stalder, or inbar stalder.
Mustafina did submit it but it was judged not different enough from the Seitz to be designated a new skill. What I don’t really understand is why people keep doing the shaposh full when it’s not worth more than the half? Correct me if I’m wrong but I thought the half was already an E, and the cap on transitions means the Seitz is also an E - which is why Eli doesn’t really do it any more. So why are more people doing it? I mean I’m all for cool skills, but …
I love me some Giulia but I do have to acknowledge when baby girl is flawed.
1. flexed feet 2. extreme lack of height on Markelov 3. cowboyed dismount
that being said, she has made some strides on bars and I think that was the best Gienger she’s ever done.
Keep it up, baby girl!
In fairness it’s impossible to get a huge amount of height on a markelov … if you look at Beth Tweddle’s, for example, it’s clearly dynamic but it doesn’t generate that much height over the bar. Mutafina used to have one of the best in the business but it still never had that massive height you can see on tkatchev releases.
society: oh you have your period? well you have two options. woman: okay. society: you can use sanitary pads, which make you feel like you are wearing a diaper, and have the added fun benefit of being extremely uncomfortable and give you the extreme paranoia that they will…
I have a cup! It’s saved me a shit-ton of money on pads/tampons, you get all the pros of tampons without the risk of TSS and it’s good for the environment hurrah hurrah. It takes a couple of periods to get used to it and it’s occasionally kind of disgusting (there’s something weird about literally POURING your own blood out of it) but once you’ve done it a few times it’s fine. I’ve never dropped it in a public bathroom, or dropped it down a toilet or anything and I’ve used it for what like 50 periods?
Can we talk about how Anne Hathaway’s husband Adam Shulman looks a bit like William Shakespeare… who had a wife named Anne Hathaway?
damn the illuminati’s not even trying anymore
I guess you could say that when Anne hath a Will, Anne Hathaway
okay I have to reblog for that pun
Except that that probably isn’t a picture of Shakespeare - according to experts at the National Portrait Gallery in London, this (the Cobbe Portrait) is most likely to be someone called Thomas Overbury. The picture that has the greatest claim to be an image of Shakespeare taken from life is the Chandos Portrait, which not to bum you out or anything doesn’t look anything like this guy
saw one of these things for the USA. decided we needed an english version.
I actually thought this was for New England at first because like 90% of these names are names of towns in Rhode Island, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire hahahaha. Except we took off the “shires” because ain’t nobody got time for the shire.
