I realize there was an extremely racist confession posted earlier today. I apologize for the mistake and any hurt it may have caused and have deleted the confession from the blog.
Please feel free to send me a private message on my personal account to give me a heads up if these types of confessions are unintentionally posted. They, as our regulations mention, have no place here at all.
I’m so sick of my gym. First of all, coaches don’t focus on training one element. They make us train a lot of new elements at one practice, that only lasts 2 hours. Result: we can’t do any of them. Once last year I did my first round off backhandspring and I was so happy. But after that day the coaches never let me try doing it again, and now i’ve lost my ability to do it.
In march, there will be a competition. The levels systems are different than USA, the best level is A, and I’m on B. The only thing that I can’t do that is on the requirements of level A is a aerial cartwheel. Instead of letting me and some other girls focus on this skill, since we already have all the others, they tell us that we should compete on level B because we can’t do the aerial cartwheel. Of couse we can’t, they don’t let us try more than 2 times per day!!
Today, just like every other practice, we tried to do it 2 times. The second tome i’ve almost made it, but the coach told me “you only had 2 chances, now lets do round offs.” I can do a round off. I can’t do a aerial cartwheel. Yes, i need to do round offs, but I need to focus more on aerial cartwheels!!
Ok, so I was pissed because he only let us try twice. (Oh, and I forgot to say: we only have practice twice a week, wich means 4 aerial cartwheels at a week. That’s how much we try to do it.) And then a girl did her second aerial cartwheel just like I did mine. What did the coach do? he let this girl try more than 4 times! And what happened? yes, she made it, while we all where doing round offs.
God, I go to every single practice; I’m on senior year, I could be studying, but i spend my whole evening doing gymnastics, since i go by bus and it takes a long time for me to go to my gym and come back home (i leave home at 2:30 pm and come back at 6:30 pm); Ive never complain about anything the coaches said, i always do what they ask me; I dont cheat on conditioning; I try my best to be the best I can be and the behaviour the coaches have (they even get 15,20 minutes late to our practice) make me feel so frustrated and disappointed.
I’m sick and tired of receiving disgusting anonymous confessions in our inbox about certain gymnasts.
I want to make it 100% clear to all of our followers and confessors that this blog will NEVER post confessions wishing for a gymnast to be injured or killed, obscene sexual confessions, or confessions berating female gymnasts with words like slut/whore/bitch for how they choose to use social media. Confessions like this are always deleted immediately and will never see the light of day, so stop sending them.
If we continue to receive awful messages like the ones we’ve been getting recently, I will be giving serious consideration to disabling anonymous submissions for a while. The GFC inbox is not the place for you to ramble on about your freakish personal vendetta against teenage girls.
