Does anyone else wonder why Aliya always does watered down routines the whole year and only upgrades for worlds/Olympics?

I know its probably to save her body or to make sure nobody in the world knows what she is training, but its sooo weired to debut your most difficult connections at such important meets (whip+whip+dbl arabian 2013, UB combo 2012 and 2013) I think if she had done her UB routine prior to worlds in 2013 she would have been more consistant and would have made it in UB finals..

How about instead of changing the COP we change the apparatus??

Like for Beam we could make the beam longer and increase the time (only a few secons) so they have more time and space for artistry. That would also be good for tall gymnasts.

Bars: we could add another high bar on the opposite side of the low bar so it would be high-low-high. That would be…

How would you do the dismount with the low-high-low bars?

They still have two high bars to dismount from. high-low-high :-D

Floor: We could increase the time and the size of the floor but keep the amount of skills the same so they have more time for dance and more space for innovative skills??

I know that it will never happen because it would be to expencive for all the gyms to have to buy new beams/bars and floors but still..

Anyone else have any ideas??

after some years of reflection… i think all the people that said the russian gymnasts were brats and babies for being upset when they lost simply  forgot that these were very young girls whose ENTIRE lives were leading up to this moment. In the gym ten hours a day. Giving up their lives. Extreme pressure. Physical pain. Mustafina worked her ASS off to come back from an ACL injury injury. SORRY they wanted to win? sorry they cried? i’m damn sure I would have. 

Komova actually said in an interview that they cried during TF becasue they thought they might come in fourth. If you look at them on the medal stands they are smiling and happy.
