blatherings about gymnastics


Hello! I’m Rawles and this blog is for my thoughts and commentary on the world of women’s artistic gymnastics.

I don’t claim any especial expertise outside of readings of the Code of the Points and watching lots of gymnastics. Mostly I just have a deep enjoyment of and respect for the sport. I enjoy technical examinations of competitions and tangential conversation about gymnasts almost equally so both things are likely to show up here. I used to use a tag in my personal LiveJournal for this sort of discussion and I haven’t altered the way that I go about posting with the move, which means that my analysis tends to be “layman”-friendly as it was mostly a bunch of my LJ friends who know nothing about gymnastics who were following my posts before.

I’m not aiming for this to be a news blog or information source or anything like that. I assure you that if you hear something here first it was just dumb luck on my part and if it seems like I’m trying to be a Primary Knowledgeable Source for something, my tone is just not coming through properly.

This is just gymnastics and what I think about it at any given moment.

If you have any general comments or questions about this blog, you can go ahead and leave them here.

  1. Hello Rawles

    My name’s Anna Griffin and I’m part of a film production company called Wellington Films. I came across your blog whilst researching gymnastics for a short film we are currently working on. The film is called Cold Warrior and it explores allegations of abuse in sport, concentrating around the 1970s:

    A young gymnast questions her dreams of Olympic glory when she discovers she is part of a sinister government plot to win at any cost.

    I would love the chance to open up communication with you as we feel it is really important, not only for the film, but to gymnastics as a whole that we are doing everything properly and connecting with blog sites such as yours will really help us with this. You can follow us on our blog site too – Cold Warrior Film.

    It would be great to hear back from you and if you have any questions then please do not hesitate to ask.

    Kindest regards
