I’ve never related to Nastia more than right now
It’s good to know that even an Olympic gold-medallist isn’t above extreme procrastination when it comes to essay writing.
I think their friendship is real. I mean, they have pictures of them having out together and with Charlotte Drury. If they weren’t friends, I don’t think they would be hanging out together outside gymnastics-related things.
That said, I don’t think they’re as close as NBC and the media makes them out to be. There’s something about their interviews together that seems a little bit exaggerated and staged, but maybe that’s just my interpretation.
Of course this is all speculation, but I feel like Kyla and McKayla were really close when they were younger, but naturally grew apart as they got older and their personalities developed (McKayla being more out-going, Kyla being more shy). Gymnastics/being at meets and camps together often feels like it may be keeping their friendship going more strongly than it would if they’d been normal teenagers. Regardless, I have a girl who I was best friends with when I was in my single digits who I’ve drifted apart from since, and if we had both made it to the Olympics together that would have been the most surreal/incredible thing ever.
Brenna Dowell 2013 FX ~ Remastered to “Variations On Dark Eyes”
how in sync is this though
Petition to send this to Nastia
How sad is it that this matches way better than her actual music? I maintain that 80% of Brenna’s artistry problem on FX is her terrible music choice. I mean, her choreo and dance isn’t inspired or anything, but she’s got good carriage and good posture and looks nice in most of what she does on FX if you ignore her awful music and the fact that the minimalist choreo doesn’t fit it at all. Better music would solve a lot of her problems.
My internet is crappy at the moment so I had to pause this video several times to wait for it to load. I’d watch 20ish seconds of the video, pause, watch something else and come back. I’d then watch the video forgetting the sync wasn’t actually the one the routine was choreographed to. Holy shit, it’s so good! Brenna has awesome tumbling and she needs music that complements that.
