This is a blog dedicated to Chinese Women Artistic Gymnastics where you can find photos and stories of Chinese gymnasts. This blog is written by someone who is not involved with gymnastics; however, as an enthusiastic TV audience, I love this sport and admire the girls who work so hard everyday for it. This is my way of saying thank you to the gymnasts for their hard work, by telling their stories. =)

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.
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^
