Random Pictures from MAG Podium Training

With the new 5-3-3 competition format for the Olympics, MAG gymnasts are training on more events. At this year’s Nationals, we’ll get to watch routines like Feng Zhe on rings etc…. o_o…

The Japanese MAG team has their eyes set on gold medals on team, all around, floor exercise, high bar and parallel bars; which mirrors the goals for Team China with the exception of Uchimura’s AA and Chen Yibin’s SR. They have put great pressure on Team China; we are definitely in for an awesome show down at the Olympics.

A Couple of Pictures from Practice

It’s very nice to see the girls from the national team catching up and having a good laugh with their friends in the provincial team. Huang Huidan and Xiao Sa were both on the national team and both were training under Coach Xu at one point.  I think Xiao Sa was sent back to the provincial team due to injuries. Poor girl, but she seems to be doing just fine. I wish the best for her.

Yao Jinnan is starting to have this seasoned and fearless look on her face; I love that.  The national champion title is hers to lose. This girl’s got a upgraded floor routine that I am dying to see. I heard her upgraded second pass will be excellent. ^o^
