A Negative Attitude

September 9, 2012

If Jordyn wants to quit because she just wants to move on, good for her.  It just bugs me to think she might be influenced to quit because she has dumbasses telling her that she just can’t do it.  That the body type that she won worlds with, which isn’t going to change much more, is some how going to keep her from making a second Olympic team.

Four years is a long time.  Instead of worrying about being unable to beat some future gymnast, it would be better to take a page from Khorkina’s playbook.  Upgrade.  It’s not the curves that hold women gymnasts back.  It’s the stagnant skills.  Upgrade, train smart, and stay healthy and if your coach doesn’t believe in you or your body type, ditch his ass and find someone who does!
