Ellie Downie - double arabian dismount.
The mystery of Siqi going back to Hunan. (read: omfg what is going on no bb no Q_Q)
Apparently (according to the Weibo of the Hunan head coach) she went back on Monday and the above picture was taking just a few days prior. (So does she have new choreography/music? Nobody knows)
- Theory 1: She’s just going back to visit family. (Likeliness: uh… probably not?! Everyone else is still at winter camp.)
- Theory 2: She’s completely off the National Team. (Likeliness: well, her coach was dismissed back to Beijing Team due to both political reasons and the fact that Siqi didn’t exactly have a good year to help out her coach’s case, so it may very well be that they saw her as a headcase and sent her back. HOWEVER, the logical timing for that would be after Asian Games, since they have trouble fielding two teams for AG and Worlds.)
- Theory 3: She’s having a growth spurt and is sent back to Hunan to have the provincial team coaches deal with her transition. (Likeliness: very likely. Look at the picture, you can tell she kind of grown. It still doesn’t bode well for her honestly, but better than the other two! It means she’s still got a chance to come back.)
Also fun fact xD
The banner on the back literally says:
Resolute in exterminating flex feet, bent knees, cowboying, and wobbling.
Every banner in China sounds so communist even though we are not technically communist anymore. 囧
I’m having serious Wieber withdrawal, guys…
Man, Team GB just keeps busting out things that get me more and more excited about them. Thanks gymcastic for bringing this to my attention! (x)
I always love seeing a double pike without a massive lunge. It’s like witnessing a baby unicorn (x)

Yes! Do it! But only after Rio… Can you imagine if she and Katelyn both went to UCLA together… Poor Miss Val.
