Gymnastics – Counting Down to the Olympic Games

It’s an Olympic year, which means that my favorite sport, gymnastics, will be getting it’s once every four years media blitz! The 2008 Bejing Games are certain to be exciting and the road to the games may be even more so! All eyes will be on stars like Nastia Liukin and Shawn Johnson, but also on the veterans like Anna Pavlova, Oksana Chusovitina, and Beth Tweddle. The following video is a montage of many of the gymnasts to watch this year – I wonder how many we will actually see in Beijing?

Blythe at GymBlog has put together quite a list of gymnasts to watch this year along with their stories and some great video clips. On the list are Shawn Johnson, USA, Beth Tweddle, Great Britain, Jiang Yuyuan, China, Aisha Gerber, Canada, Vanessa Ferrari, Italy, Daria Joura, Australia, Hong Su Jong, Korea, Anna Pavlova, Russia, Bridget Sloan, USA, Cerasela Patrascu, Romania, Yulia Lozhechko, Russia, and Oksana Chusovitina, Germany. As they year goes on, the list is certain to change.

I will be going to the Olympic Trials in June and cannot wait to see the showdown that takes place for a berth on the US Women’s team – it’s going to be great!
