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. =)

TC continues its tradition of putting gymnasts through boring lectures in its relentless pursuit of theory over practice (remember this 3 months ago?); the latest lecture is on secrets of success… Makes you wonder if they purchased these lectures on bulk discount. The highlight of the lecture is of course the group photo afterwards when they seems to always coincidentally select the same gymnasts to pose for the oh-so-natural smile pictures. My poor gymnasts…

MAG Team at the CCTV Annual Sports Personality Award
The annual CCTV Sports Awards, recognized as the Chinese version of the Laureus World Sports Awards, is taken as the premier honors on the Chinese sporting calendar. The 11 category winners came from the votes cast by 120 sports specialists.
Unfortunately, the Chinese MAG team didn’t win the Sports Team of the Year (WTF?!); that honor went to the Chinese swimming team (seriously? it’s not like they won any team relay events!)… Even worse, five-time Olympic champion Zou Kai didn’t event get a nomination for best male athlete…*rage* *rage* *rage*….
