The Leader Speaks (sorta.)

Well, I tried to embed the video but Blogger had a brainfart.

So here we are then.

Again, apologies for the crapness in quality (I think I also left out an answer to one of the questions). You do what you can on limited time and resources. Note the mess around me, the television noise in the background and the fact that I'm sitting on the floor.

The things I do for this sport, eh!

Now it's your turn to speak (or write, haha) your mind about the state of the sport in this country. Read the post below for all instructions. Don't be shy now, y'hear?

Hi Mez,

Great video! As the mum of a level 3 gymnast I appreciate your efforts to create a higher profile for our sport. Gymnastics is BIG in other countries. (We just came back from China where gymnastics is frequently shown on their sports channel not to mention the number of kids involved in the sport--including boys!) I'd like to see GA push our sport more. With all these extra digital channels there's no reason gymnastics can't be shown on our TV too. Keep up the good work!

I'm Chinese. I love Lauen Mitchell very much after Olimpic and world cups, especially sawn the vedio she and Cheng Fei chatting in some simple Enlish words in World Cup. Have you sawn that? That's very interesting. She is elegant and pretty. But there is less information about her on Internet, I want to konw her more from you. And introduce to other Chinese Gym fans. I belive she will be popular.
Hope you could give her my best wishes!

I'm definitely doing this! I'm not showing my face or even introducing myself (given the size of my gymsport and my uncommon name, giving a first name leads you to all information there is about me...) But I'll be doing a slideshow of some sort. Your video is sho awesome.
