Basically Martha Karolyi was like “NO NO NO NO AND NO.” Because she’s afraid of other countries watching and finding out U.S. gym secrets with like, the process of training as an elite with what goes on at camps and everything, and because she doesn’t want the girls to lose focus from the main goal.
Of course, we’re not going to do anything to piss Martha off, so we’re going to change things around a bit. We’re still filming but we might not release everything as often as we planned. We’re going to have the footage so maybe something big can happen in the end…but what you’ll get instead will be like a slight glimpse at the girls in training but then more focused on who they are as people.
USAG was happy we came to them with the project and are glad we didn’t do anything before talking to them, and basically, I don’t want to do anything that could jeopardize Laurie’s or Jazzy’s standing with USAG/Martha.
We ARE going forward as planned and will let you know when things will be released but we just won’t be showing in the gym as much as we’d hoped.
