TUMBLR HARD OR GO HOME: Romanian gymnasts, 2013.
Our dream reality show involves the American and UK national gymnasts training with the Royal Ballet/the Royal Ballet School for several months. Or the Russian gymnasts training at the Bolshoi.
Either that, or an hour a week of Ethan Stiefel dancing/training/making coffee/hanging with Gillian Murphy/doing serious and important artistically director-ish things. Topless.
From Nadia to Nastia: We’d love to know - who are everyone’s favourite gymnastics legends?
Tiny dancer: Lilia Podkopayeva.
Her technique may not be perfect, but she remains the only gymnast who had both the sylphic elegance and the stones to attempt fouettés on carpet.

Gymcastics and Scott are seeking feedback from gymnastics fans on what you would like to see from the USA gymnasts during live podium training broadcasts (similar to the one from the 2013 American cup), given that there will only be one cameraman broadcasting the action for the Gymternet to see.
For more specific details of this contest/giveaway, tune in to the latest episode of Gymcastic. The contest details are at the end, at about the 1:29.45 mark. But you should deffo listen to the whole thing because it’s really great!
To enter the contest, e-mail your single-cameraman-podium-training-strategy ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “Ideas for Scott Bregman” Please include your name and address.
