twoflipstwotwists asked: Do you mean September 30th on the predictions post?

Yes I did, I’ve just changed it. Proofreading is not my strong suit, so thanks for pointing it out!

it’s up now!

2014 WORLDS PREDICTIONS GAME
The 2014 World Gymnastics Championships will take place in Nanning, China from October 3-12, but there’s an even more prestigious competition taking place right here on tumblr…
Here’s how it works: send me your predictions of the medalists (top 3 finishers) on each WAG event (VT, UB, BB, FX) and in the all around and team finals in order to win fame and maybe followers.
Before the competition starts I’ll make a post of all the predictions and afterwards I’ll make one listing the winners (who will get publicity and some pretty major bragging rights).
SUBMIT YOUR PREDICTIONS HERE
You have until 11 PM EST on Tuesday, September 30th to submit. Please don’t be shy about sending in your predictions (I’ll only post about you if you win). Also, please try not to share your predictions too much so that everyone can enter their own opinions. You may only change your predictions if a gymnast you included withdraws from the competition (in which case I will notify you). 
When I receive your predictions I will send you a message (provided that your ask is open). If you think you have submitted your predictions, but didn’t receive any message from me within 24 hours of submitting it, please let me know or try sending them again.
PLEASE REBLOG AND SPREAD THE WORD BECAUSE THE MORE PEOPLE WHO PARTICIPATE THE BETTER IT WILL WORK!
Let me know if you have any questions. GOOD LUCK!

predictions game question for you guys

So worlds starts on October 3rd with podium training probably a few days earlier, so I think I would close the submission on the 1st or the 2nd, that’s about 2 weeks from now and I’m wondering when you guys would like the voting to start. I’ve been getting a lot of people asking for it to start soon, but I don’t want people to submit too early and then have to change their predictions a bunch of times because of injuries and such… What do you guys think I should do? Message me or reply to this post if you have ideas.

Basically they’re saying that after Euros they stopped coaching the national team….

Am I a horrible person if I don’t mind this because Larisa’s form got much better on beam since Euros?

We might actually see choreography on beam from Romania again!

But, uhm, who’s, coaching?
*prays that Sandra and Catalina decide to coach and also make a comeback at the same time*

Lacramioara Moldovan, Lucian Sandu, and Cristian Moldovan, I believe.
