Those crazy Canadians

June 16, 2008

Lots of crying and rending of the clothes has gone on about the points system that Gymnastics Canada used to determine its Olympians.  I just found a video of Carol Angela Orchard, Elise Hopfner-Hibbs’ coach, talking about the Canadian Nationals.  CAO says something nuts in this video.  She says Elise was asked to specialize on two events and not train all events but then in order to get to Day 2 of the Championships you had to compete the All Around.  What’s that about?  Why would you ask an athlete to specialize but then keep her out of EF at Championships if she doesn’t do AA?    

Check out the other videos.  Nansy does her interveiws in French and English.
