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.

Call to the gymternet!  The delightful Deanne Soza has contracted a very serious eye infection, which affects obviously not only her gymnastics, but potentially her ability to see. 
So what can we do?
I’m hoping that maybe we can send her something to cheer her up a little.  My idea is to take pictures that you, the amazing gymternet, take/draw/create and put those onto a card for her. 
Maybe it’s a picture of a get well sign that you’re holding up for her, maybe it’s a drawing of her you made while you were bored in class, maybe it’s one of those fancy edits that all the kids are doing these days.  Whatever you would like to share that is appropriate and uplifting. 
There is room for about 30 pictures on the card.  Perhaps if we get billions of fabulous submissions, we’ll send more cards.  But for now it would be awesome if we could put 30 pictures on this card, and send it to Arete. 
If you’d like to participate, and I hope that you do because Deanne is incredible, either post your picture here, or email it to me at spannytampson@gmail.com. 
GO GYMTERNET GO!
