From Rewriting Russian Gymnastics. If you hate the comparisons and the endless “artistry” discussion - reader discretion is advised ;)
THESE ARE MY THOUGHTS AND YOU CAN DISAGREE WITH WHATEVER YOU WANT BUT IDGAF
Basically it spews shit about how if you can do a skill without falling you will be fine and that russians are poor babies and life isn’t fair. Last time I checked Russians were nearly falling of the podiums attempting to vaults that they sometimes can and sometimes can’t do and it was the Americans who were sticking these hard vaults (#16.233 bitches) with a “ showcase of outstanding technique, form and expression.”. Last time I checked Mustafina Was doing a fucking jig in the air every time she wanted to twist and it was the likes of Maroney and Wieber and Sacramone that kept their motherfucking legs together. Last time I checked the Russians weren’t exactly the definition of “difficulty with grace” when they fell all over the place on floor at the olympics and the Americans were the ones with lowest score being a fucking 15 flat?? so ya you know what the americans might not be the fucking ballerina’s that the russians are but this isn’t a dance competition or who can look the most fucking elegant as they walk towards the corner of the fucking floor. These are gymnasts we shouldn’t have to say “oh this code suits the Americans and it’s a load of crap” cause if the went back to the perfect ten days the Americans would haul ass just to change the way they do their gymnastics to fit the code and they would work hard so that they could be recognised for what they can do. And if the Russians can’t deal with that then that’s their problem not the fucking Americans
okay im good now lmao
I mean, if we’re going to go there….
Ballerinas are the most underrated athletes.
GUYS SHE IS SPINNING ON HER TOE.
ALL HER WEIGHT ON HER TOE.
Thank you someone for finally acknowledging this.
People always make ballet seem like such a wimpy, easy sport.
While we are dancing, we have to:
- turn out our feet
- hyper extended our knees
- tuck our buts under
- flatten our stomach
- close your ribcage (to the point where you cant breathe)
- shoulders are down and back
- elbows are lifted
- hands and fingers are soft
- neck is long
- use proper head movements
ALL THIS WHILE STILL IN OUR STARTING POSITIONS NOW DO ALL THAT WHILE MOVING AND LOOKING GORGEOUS. AND EFFORTLESS
You try holding your leg by your head without touching it and turning on the tips of your toes and wooden shoes and tell me ballet isn’t hard.
People always say “don’t be a ballerina” and “don’t be such a pussy”
when really ballerinas and vagina’s are probably the most hardcore things
AND BALLERINAS WITH VAGINA’S ARE JUST STRAIGHT UP METAL
SO DO NOT TELL ME BALLET IS FUCKING EASY AND NOT A REAL SPORT
Most ballerina’s are also known for dancing until their feet bleed, bandaging them up and getting back on with the show.
ballerinas are fucking hardcore ok
THANK YOU ALL. YOU ARE ALL SMART NICE PEOPLE. unlike the fuckin turds that don’t understand our ballerina hardcoreness.
