Anyway. 100 days until Beijing... I think. It's possibly 99 (I lost count!) but either way the newspapers are getting into the swing of things, featuring profiles on handfuls of exciting Olympic hopefuls but, sadly, no gymnasts. There might be something on the television news, who knows. Russo got a look-in when it was 100 days until the Melbourne Commonwealth Games...
On a happier note: GGMB folk are wonderfully resourceful. Looky looky!
Eyes open, smiling, torch aloft, what a great shot. It's just a shame my re-sizing techniques do it no justice *shakes fist at Blogger*
And in news to hand from secret snoopitty-snoops Schludern and Ozzie, Dasha got right back into practise at the AIS gym after the relay:
Dasha stayed in Canberra for a few days after the torch relay to have her routines verified at the AIS, and scored by an official judge. She competed the double layout in her floor routine, and is also back to the Baitova after watering down to a FTY earlier in the year.
Woohoo! Great vault, great bars, great floor, I just pray to the high heavens that she can stick her beam because if you couple all that with her experience gained in the Olympic arena already, she'll be on a medal podium, no problems!
