  • Color match game
    26 May 2022
    A couple of blog housekeeping notes: First, an update on the 5,000-post repack giveaway. I have sent out 11 of the 20 packages. Another is packaged and another is selected. I'm currently selecting winner No. 14's cards. Also, today's the last day to vote in the first round of the Cardboard Appreciation Hall of Fame series. If you haven't voted yet, copy and paste this link and vote!: https://vote.easypolls.net/6286614c5617e80062aee2cf

     
    Way back when I wrote the 1975 Topps set blog, I mentioned how much I liked the '75 Rick Auerbach card as a kid.

    Really, I shouldn't have liked it at all. It's a Dodger, surrounded by Giants colors. But I loved the orangey glow, it reminded me of my favorite drink of that time -- root beer -- and, heck, it was the '70s, that color combination was in everyone's house.

    It's also a great example of the color clash that is all over '75 Topps. I submit that the Auerbach card would not have stood out to me if the player was a Giant, dressed in black and orange. It's part of the charm of the set. You may wear red and blue every game day, Mr. Player, but we're going to frame you in pink and yellow.

    The years for when Topps did not match its design colors with the team portrayed creates an interesting game: which cards in that set actually did match the design with the player uniform? This was a question recently offered up by Nick of the njwv blog.


    Now, this has been a casual observance of mine for decades actually. I even mentioned it a couple times on the 1975 Topps blog.

    Despite '75 Topps' best efforts, some of the card color combos in the set actually do match well with the teams used. Some of this might be coincidence, but I think some of it was intentional. For example, there was far too much green and yellow used with the defending World Champion Oakland A's cards in that set for it to be happenstance.

    Aside from the A's, I don't see any team that really stood out in terms of perfectly matched cards. But there are some good cases of color matches for nearly every team that year. I decided to find the best color matches for each team and then throw in some honorable mentions.

    Just another way to keep the 1975 Topps set alive!

    OAKLAND A'S


    Best color match: Claudell Washington (green & yellow)

    There are so many examples I could put here, including a couple of other green-yellow cards, Sal Bando, Jesus Alou, Billy Williams and Joe Rudi. But the rookie cup puts Washington over the top as the top color match.

    Honorable mentions: Williams, Pat Bourque, Ray Fosse, Dave Hamilton, Bando, Alou, Jim Hunter, Ken Holtzman, Rudi.
     

    CALIFORNIA ANGELS


    Best color match: Frank Tanana (red & yellow)

    Just an insanely pleasing card amid all the green-and-purple in this set. Again, the rookie cup puts Tanana over the top of a couple of other red-and-yellow Angels cards.

    Honorable mentions: Rudy Meoli, Skip Lockwood, Denny Doyle.


    HOUSTON ASTROS


    Best color match: Ken Forsch (red & orange)

    This is just before the famous rainbow uniforms the Astros adopted in 1975. During the early '70s, the Astros primary color, to me, seemed to be a reddish-orange, so the red-orange borders work well.

    But there is an Astros card without the red-orange border that I think works well for that card. Consider it a special honorable mention pick.


    Another rookie cup example, matching with the bottom border and those red/orange letters work quite well, too.

    Honorable mentions: Greg Gross, Fred Scherman. (Note: the brown-orange combo works kind of well with the Astros, too, so I'll throw in J.R. Richard, Tommy Helms, Roger Metzger and the Astros team card).


    ATLANTA BRAVES


    Best color match: Darrell Evans (blue & green... with red letters).

    Tough one. All that green isn't helping, but the red letters help with the red in the Braves' uniform. Best I could do.


    MILWAUKEE BREWERS


    Best color match: Ken Berry (yellow & light blue)

    This is before the green Brewers days. The Brewers liked to wear baby blue in the mid-'70s with bright yellow in their hats.

    Honorable mentions: Eduardo Rodriguez, Tom Murphy.


    ST. LOUIS CARDINALS


    Best color match: Bob Gibson (red & yellow)

    I don't believe for a second that the color combo for Bob Gibson's career-capping Topps card was not hand-picked.

    Honorable mentions: (both airbrush jobs) Claude Osteen, Ken Rudolph.


    CHICAGO CUBS


    Best color match: Rick Reuschel (tan & light blue... with red team letters)

    The ideal border combo would be red/blue for the Cubs but there aren't any of those. I usually ignored the team name colors for this exercise but in certain situations those names really stand out, such as this one.


    LOS ANGELES DODGERS


    Best color match: Jim Brewer (red & blue)

    Not a lot to choose from with the Dodgers, lot of brown-and-orange and blue-and-green combos. Brewer works the best, but we're still in Candlestick Park.

    Honorable mentions: Geoff Zahn (but his glove is hiding the red uniform number!)


    MONTREAL EXPOS


    Best color match: Ken Singleton (red & blue)

    Everything works here, the reddish stands up top, the blue uniform down below.

    Honorable mentions: Bob Stinson, Chuck Taylor.


    SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS


    Best color match: John D'Acquisto (orange & brown)

    I've known this color match since I pulled this card out of the first packs I ever bought. It's a Giants card through-and-through, even if there is no black in the '75 Topps color scheme.

    Honorable mentions: Dave Kingman, Giants team.


    CLEVELAND INDIANS


    Best color match: Leron Lee (red & blue)

    The red-and-blue color combo is the go-to for a lot of teams, but '75 Topps was pretty stingy with this combo. It doesn't quite work with the Indians, whose blue was navy.

    Honorable mentions: George Hendrick, Bruce Ellingsen (although there's no visible sign he's wearing a uniform).


    NEW YORK METS


    Best color match: Don Hahn (light blue & orange)

    A lot of Mets cards look nice in this set (again I think there was a bias toward the World Series teams of the time), mostly because orange is used for the likes of Seaver, Matlack and Garrett. But only Don Hahn gets blue in the border, too.
     
     
    BALTIMORE ORIOLES
     

    Best color match:
    Jim Palmer (orange & brown)
     
    Another one I think was pre-planned.
     
    Honorable mentions: Orioles team, Bob Grich, Grant Jackson, Jesse Jefferson, Boog Powell, Bob Oliver.


    SAN DIEGO PADRES


    Best color match: Gene Locklear (brown & orange... with yellow team name)

    You could go a couple different ways with this. Larry Hardy, for example, features no brown in the design but has orange & yellow borders with a yellow team name. Bob Tolan has orange and brown with red letters.

    Honorable mentions: Hardy, Tolan, Fred Kendall.


    PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES


    Best color match: Steve Carlton (red & orange)

    This is more of a case that it matches with the individual photo, red uniform with "orange dirt" below. There are a lot of "almost" cases with the Phillies. I think purple sort of works with the magenta scheme they were wearing. And I've always thought green borders look good with the Phillies, but I'd never say they match.
     

    PITTSBURGH PIRATES


    Best color match: Duffy Dyer (brown & orange... with yellow letters)

    Sadly, there was no yellow-and-black combo. We'd have to wait for 1981 Topps for that (or, heck, just go back in time one year to '74 Topps). This was the best of the bunch.


    TEXAS RANGERS


    Best color match: Steve Foucault (red & blue)

    There's a reason I thought the Steve Foucault card was so cool back in '75. Yeah, the sideburns and mustache, but also that harmony of red & blue.


    BOSTON RED SOX

    Best color match: None.

    There's no red & blue combo for the Red Sox. The Bernie Carbo blue & orange card sort of works, but not really.


    CINCINNATI REDS


    Best color match: Dan Driessen (red & yellow)

    The Reds' colors are RED and that's it! So the second color shouldn't be anything too strong. Yellow works OK, especially with the red..
  • Christopher Morel: The Cubs True Utility Player
    26 May 2022

    As April moves into May and Memorial Day weekend looms in just a few days, MLB teams are settling down into the grind of the 2022 baseball season.  For the Chicago Cubs, the daily ups and downs (literally and figuratively) have given way to a new rookie sensation who’s a breath of true fresh air: Christopher Morel.  If you need somebody to come off the bench and play anywhere and I mean anywhere – just look to Morel. One week in the Show has created a legitimate buzz around Christopher Morel and rightly so – he’s helping bring some needed excitement to the Friendly Confines just when the Cubs need it.

    Christopher Morel was promoted last week straight from the Cubs’ Double A affiliate Tennessee Smokies and made his way to Wrigley Field. In his first Major League at-bat, Morel called his “shot” a la Babe Ruth and delivered with a pinch-hit homer in the eighth inning in a blowout of the Pirates. The last Cub to homer in his inaugural at-bat was Willson Contreras back in 2016. In a twist of irony, Morel was not even ranked highly as a Cubs prospect and not expected to make any impact on an MLB roster.

    Adding to the plot, Christopher Morel became the first Cub in 118 years to play four different positions in five games.  Showing off his versatility as a true “utility” player, Morel stepped in at second, shortstop, third base and center field in his first week as a major leaguer.  I’m waiting with anticipation to see if he can pitch as well and if he can – the Cubs may have added another reliever to the bullpen who can hit as well.  Watching Morel play is sheer enjoyment and you can tell that he knows he’s blessed to be on the Cubs roster. Morel’s enthusiasm and hustle is infectious and he may be the shot in the arm needed to help the ailing Cubbies.  At any rate, watching Christopher Morel playing in different positions each night and having success at the plate (currently batting .316 with two homers, six total hits and a stolen base in one week) is a pleasure to watch and it will be interesting how his rookie season fully unfolds.

    The post Christopher Morel: The Cubs True Utility Player appeared first on Baseball Reflections.

  • Nationals 1, Dodgers 0: B lineup delivers F results

    After blowing out the Nationals in back-to-back games, the Dodgers missed out on a sweep due to being shutout in a 1-0 loss. The Dodgers had one hit with a runner on. ====== After bouncing back in his last start, Julio Urias continued that momentum tonight, pitching well again and showing improved stuff. He actually …
  • Pirates 10, Rockies 5: This was ugly

    Bullpen gives up 8 runs, including 2 3-run homers

    Just when it looked like the Rockies had their offense going and could notch a series win, and on the road nonetheless, the Pirates looted the Colorado bullpen and sunk any hopes of a victory. Instead, the Rockies blew a 5-2 lead thanks to Carlos Estévez giving up a three-run homer and then Justin Lawrence doing the exact same thing.

    If you turned off your TV, slammed down your laptop, or buried your phone in your pocket to avoid seeing any more heartbreak, I certainly don’t blame you.

    Bullpen blows it

    When Ryan Feltner left the game, he had a 5-2 lead after five innings and was in position to get his first MLB win. The bullpen then erased that possibility in the sixth inning. Lucas Gilbreath started out strong by striking out Ben Gamel. He then walked Michael Chavis before getting Josh VanMeter to fly out. Bud Black then pulled Gilbreath to put in Carlos Estévez, who first gave up a single to Rodolfo Castro and then lost a nine-pitch battle to Jack Suwinski, who crushed a three-run homer over the right field fence.

    The bullpen collapse wasn’t done there, however. Justin Lawrence entered the game in the seventh and started with a lead-off walk. Cal Mitchell followed with a single, and after one out, Gamel hit an RBI single to put the Pirates up 6-5. VanMeter then did one better, hitting a 403-foot, three-run homer to put the final demoralizing touches on the game.

    Not to be left out, Ashton Goudeau then gave up more hits and a walk in the eighth, allowing the Pirates to get one more run.

    Free rides are never free

    Walks really hurt the Rockies on Wednesday. Feltner’s lone troubling inning started with a walk, which then led to a run. Gilbreath issued a one-out walk that came around to score in the sixth. Lawrence and Goudeau both allowed lead-off walks and both ended up as runs. All five Rockies pitchers gave up at least one run.

    Cron Zone on the road

    It had been nine road games without a homer for the Rockies. C.J. Cron smashed that streak with a 427-foot solo shot to left.

    This is the 12th Cron homer we have posted this season…

    Please enjoy as always. pic.twitter.com/BxJ4SzT5IV

    — Colorado Rockies (@Rockies) May 25, 2022

    It was Cron’s 12th homer of the year and third on the road. At the time, it put him tied for the lead for most in the NL with Mookie Betts. It could have been a two-run homer after Yonathan Daza led off the inning with a single, but then was erased when Charlie Blackmon hit into a double play.

    Feltner feeling good

    Ryan Feltner should feel good about this one. It wasn’t perfect and he got into more jams than he should have, but overall, in his second start of the season and fourth overall in the big leagues, Feltner pitched well. Three of his five innings were three-up, three-down and he struck out seven, to increase his season total to 14 in 10 innings. He gave up two runs on three hits with two walks and one HBP.

    Both runs came in the third inning after Feltner issued a lead-off walk to Tyler Heineman. Bryan Reynolds followed with a double and a sac grounder from Ke’Bryan Hayes and RBI single by Gamel cut the Rockies lead to 4-2. Then he got VanMeter to fly out. In the second, one slider not only struck out Chavis, but also made him drop to a knee. After a single and a walk got a little rally going for the Pirates, Feltner squashed it by striking out Suwinski.

    Finally! Some early offense

    After barely managing three unearned runs in their last three games, the Rockies offense finally woke up for three earned runs in the second inning. Cron led off the inning with a single up the middle before Ryan McMahon and Randal Grichuk hit back-to-back doubles to put the Rockies up 2-0.

    — RoxGifsVids (@RoxGifsVids) May 25, 2022

    After José Iglesias moved Grichuk to third with a groundout, Brian Serven collected his first non-homer RBI with a single to plate Grichuk.

    — RoxGifsVids (@RoxGifsVids) May 25, 2022

    Grichuk finished the game with three RBI, Connor Joe got a single in the ninth and has now reached base in 22 straight games. Every Rockie except Garrett Hampson recorded a hit and Daza, Cron, McMahon, Grichuk, and Serven all posted two hits. The Rockies had 13 hits, but left eight runners on base and went 4-for-10 with runners in scoring position.

    Up next

    The Rockies (20-23) now head to the nation’s capital to begin a four-game series with the Washington Nationals (14-30). The first game is set for Thursday when Germán Márquez will face off against Patrick Corbin. First pitch is at 5:05 p.m. MDT.

    Lucas Giolito will take the mound to try and bounce back from Chicago’s blowout loss last night. | Kamil Krzaczynski-USA TODAY Sports

    It’s another battle of the Soxes, as the Good Sox look to bounce back from last night's performance

    Happy Wednesday! Hopefully we got the storms out of the way and are ready to play some baseball. The Boston Red Sox (20-22) and Chicago White Sox (21-21) will play in game two of the series tonight, and we are hoping the outcome is better than last night.

    Lucas Giolito will take the mound against the lefty veteran Rich Hill, as the South Siders look to even up the series at one game apiece.

    Giolito will start his seventh game of the season, and currently holds a 2-1 record. His ERA sits at 2.84 with a 1.23 WHIP. He also has 44 strikeouts in 31 2⁄3 innings pitched. His last outing against the Kansas City Royals started off shaky, but he eventually settled down to have a solid rest of the game. He went five innings with seven hits, two runs, two walks, and seven strikeouts. The key today will be getting off to a good start against the Red Sox, who are a hot offensive team. Speaking of hot, the matchup to watch tonight will be JD Martinez against Giolito. In 11 PA, Martinez has a slash line of .500/.545/.800 with one home run against our ace.

    Hill will make his eighth appearance of the season. As a new member of the Red Sox on a one-year deal, as he currently holds a 1-1 record. He has a 3.90 ERA and 1.27 WHIP with 23 strikeouts in 30 innings pitched. In his last game against the Seattle Mariners, he went just two innings with six hits, four runs, one walk, and two strikeouts. Hopefully we can jump on him early like his last outing and get some runs on the board. Hill relies on six pitches, with his most used being his curveball at 41.3%. He also includes a fastball (40%), slider (12.9%), changeup (4.2%), cutter (1%), and sinker (0.6%).

    While most of America slept, these two contenders gave insomniac baseball fans a treat.

  • How to fall in love with the gym
    25 May 2022
    AW promotion

    A lot of people hate nothing more than going to the gym. They find the thought of it to be incredibly off-putting. They do not want to exercise with other people around, especially those who may look like they live on the treadmill. However, gyms can be very welcoming and friendly places. It is all about your approach. So, let’s take a look at how to fall in love with the gym.

    Make sure you are maximising your results – One of the reasons why so many people fall out of love with the gym is because they feel like they are not getting the results they had hoped for. The good news is that there are so many different ways that you can make sure you are getting the most from your time in the gym. For example, you can use protein powder to speed up your results. You could also benefit from the services of a personal trainer in the gym who can ensure your workout plan is tailored to suit your needs.

    Try out some of the different classes they run in your local gym – Another way to make sure that you fall in love with the gym is to try out the different classes that are running. There are lots of great gym classes that tend to be available, from zumba to spin classes. There is something for everyone! You do not have to head into the main gym area and use the equipment. There are plenty of options, and making working out fun is imperative here. 

    Choose a gym with care – In addition to the tips that we have mentioned so far, it is imperative to choose a gym with care. Spend some time doing your research to find a gym that perfectly suits you. Perhaps you want a gym that has a lot of different exercise options? Maybe you want a gym that is friendly so that you do not feel like you are being judged the moment you walk through the door? You can ensure you end up with the ideal gym for you by reading reviews and looking at videos online.

    Find a gym buddy – Finding someone to go to the gym with can make a big difference. This can help to make working out fun, while also ensuring you are more confident in the gym. If you do not know anyone in your local area that wants to go to the gym with you, don’t worry; there are other options. You can use online forums and social media groups to reach out to people. Also, joining one of the classes in the gym will help you to meet new people with the same interests. 

    So there you have it: some of the different steps you can take to make sure you fall in love with the gym all over again. We hope that the tips and advice that we have provided you with above will help you to achieve more success while working out.

     Italian gymnastics club Gymnastic Romagna Team defended their decision to allow Russian gymnast Artur Dalalyon to continue competing for them despite major international sports organizations banning Russian athletes from competition for the foreseeable future in support of Ukraine.

    Double Olympian and 2002 European floor champion Alona Kvasha of Ukraine blasted the Italian club on their Facebook page for allowing the Russian gymnast to compete.

    "How in 2022. While the world witnesses the most horrible things that Russian soldiers do to Ukrainian innocent people by paring children girls and boys, women and men. Russian soldiers tortured civilians worse than in the second world war...," she wrote.

    "And still, after all of that we see how your club invite a Russian gymnast to compete for you??? Do you have a heart?"



    To which the Italian club responded with "we are involve in sports and not in politics, we know this guy, we cannot blame all russians for the action of a fool. Sport must go where politics does not. Thanks for your point of view. Have a good day."



    The Ukrainian gymnast did not hold back on the club's response.

    "unfortunately many Russian gymnast more involved in to politics then any others athletes in the world and showing support of them it’s the same as showing support of the war! Shame on you!"

    "The entire world is showing support and solidarity for Ukraine except you!"

    "That’s why they all applying sanctions against the Russian government/ athletes…etc..."

    "so all those people who suffer from the sanctions at least protest against the war for peace!"

    "Ukrainian people and athletes also didn’t want this war but they have to defend their country and the people! Russian athletes support their government and support the war!"

    "Do you wish me to provide you with evidence of their support???"



    The Gymnastic Romagna Team has not responded to the gymnast's replies.

    Few days ago, Ukrainian gymnast Illia Kovtun withdrew from Italy's Serie A as Russian gymnast Artur Dalaloyan, who has a contract with Italian Gymnastic Romagna Team, was set to compete there.

    Russian and Belarusian athletes and officials, including judges, have been banned from taking part in FIG competitions or FIG-sanctioned competitions from 7 March 2022 until further notice in response to Russia's invasion of Ukraine.

  • Gymnasts and Faces in the Crowd
    25 May 2022

    In American media, Sports Illustrated is the premier publication in the sports genre with an iconic brand and long running history that few institutions compare to, let alone rival. Going back to my childhood days I would always get excited when a copy of Sports Illustrated came in the mail, and as soon as I got my hand on it, one of the first segments I would flip to was “Faces in the Crowd.”

    In every issue the Faces in the Crowd segment would feature six athletes (sometimes more or less) and provide a brief overview of a recent accomplishment that particular athlete achieved. Faces in the Crowd was unique in that it didn’t select athletes on any specific criteria. Faces in the Crowd took athletes from all sports and all level of play. In theory, winning a kindergarten youth league was as equally as meritorious for consideration as winning the Super Bowl. The diversity of Faces in the Crowd ranged from not just football and basketball players, but high school coaches, chess players, and every Olympic sport imaginable.

    The big appeal for Faces in the Crowd when I was growing up is that unlike it Major League Baseball or the NFL coverage, Faces in the Crowd wasn’t featuring famous athletes twice my age who live in multi-million dollar mansions. But rather, high school aged athletes from my own age group who I could relate to. In its time Faces in the Crowd has featured somewhere around 20,000 athletes, and as you can tell where this article is going, many of them were gymnast.

    My best guess is that somewhere between 100 to 200 gymnasts were profiled on the segment, and for this article I limited myself only to gymnasts who were veterans of elite level women’s artistic gymnastics. Gymnasts who went on to achieve success at the Olympic level were only a small portion of the gymnasts featured in Faces in the Crowd. Most were recreational non-elite gymnasts from the high school level and/or collegiate gymnasts.

    Simone Biles was featured in the September 2, 2013 edition of Faces in the Crowd. At the time she was coming off her iconic performance at 2013 American Cup where she finished 2nd to Katelyn Ohashi in what would go down in gymnastics history as the encounter between the future Olympic Superstar and the future viral UCLA gymnast.

    Kyla Ross was featured in the November 30, 2009 edition of Faces in the Crowd as a result of the success she was achieving as a junior. Kyla Ross was given the added bonus of having her profile fitted with a red background to make it standout more than the rest, while providing readers with a link to watch one of her routines.

    Katie Heenan won a bronze medal on the uneven bars at the 2001 World Championships while also leading Team USA to a bronze medal finish in the team competition. In doing so, Heenan ended Team USA’s long medal drought which spanned the 1997-2000 Olympic quad.

    But it was Heenan’s success at the collegiate level rather than the World Championships level which landed her in the April 23, 2007 edition of Faces in the Crowd. There are numerous examples of famed gymnasts from the elite level who were passed over during the elite days, only to later make the segment as a result of their collegiate-level success. At the end of this article are recent examples of this trend including a Tokyo-2021 Olympian

    Canadian gymnast Kate Richardson who is a 2x Olympian made the February 22, 2004 edition of Faces in the Crowd while she was in between her two Olympic appearances. But it was as a result of her NCAA success where she was a member of the UCLA team that earned her a mention in this segment. Sports Illustrated is a North American English-language publication and as a result, it would frequently feature Canadian gymnasts in Faces in the Crowd.

    Ashley Postell was featured in the February 17, 2003 edition of Faces in the Crowd in the aftermath of her victory at the 2002 World Championships where she won a gold medal on the balance beam.

    I am going through Faces in the Crowd in reverse yearly order, but I want to take a quick detour to the very beginning, May 7, 1956. Sandra Ruddick and Jack Beckner were the first gymnasts to ever appear in the segment. There is a lot of symbolism regarding this particular feature. First, it establishes that gymnastics was a popular sport for the Sports Illustrated editors from the very beginning. Faces in the Crowd made its first appearance on January 9, 1956. Meaning, it took only five months for gymnastics to be selected for inclusion.

    Secondly, in an era where female athletes weren’t given anywhere near the same level of recognition compared to their male counterparts, Sports Illustrated was willing to give women stronger consideration than what otherwise would be expected. Ruddick was the only woman to be featured in the entire segment, and was one of just two athletes to be given a headshot.

    Ruddick would make her lone Olympic appearance in 1956 where her scoring ranged from 46th to 55th in the various individual events. Jack Beckner would become a 3x Olympian while attending the Olympics for a 4th time as head coach of the 1968 team. He was also a successful NCAA coach where his program (USC) won the 1962 National Championship. He also had an older brother (Dick Beckner). The Beckner brothers were both members of the 1956 Olympic team.

    Jack Beckner passed away in 2016 at the age of 86, Sandra Ruddick passed away in 2017 at the age of 85.

    Courtney Kupets made the Faces in the Crowd segment in the December 16, 2002 issue for largely the same reason as Postell, winning a gold medal at the 2002 World Championships. Kupets would later become a 2x Olympic medalist.

    Courtney is currently the head coach of the University of Georgia’s gymnastics program. Ironically, she isn’t the only active NCAA head coach who was featured in Faces in the Crowd. Another alumnus of the segment was Tanya Service, who now goes by the name Tanya Chaplin and is the current head coach of Oregon State’s gymnastics team.

    Future Olympic All-Around Champion Carly Patterson was featured in the September 16, 2002 edition of Faces in the Crowd. It is one of the best examples of Sports Illustrated taking notice of a rising star in its Faces in the Crowd segment.

    Mohini Bhardwaj made the April 17, 2000 edition of Faces in the Crowd owing to her success at UCLA. However, the current Bruin would become a future Olympian when she competed at the 2004 Olympics. The 2004 Olympic team included three different gymnasts who were featured in the segment.

    Kristen Maloney and Kristal Uzelac were profiled in a rare “double” featurette in the May 26, 1997 issue. Maloney would become a 2000 Olympian and won a medal in the team competition. Uzelac would go on to become one of Team USA’s most successful juniors having won three straight All-Around titles at the Junior U.S. Championships from 1999-2001. Unfortunately, Uzelac never achieved the same level of success at the senior level. However, Uzelac is arguably as equally well known as Maloney amongst the gymnastics fanbase even to this day because Uzelac’s junior career was simply that memorable.

    Tamara Levinson who represented Team USA at the 1992 Olympics in rhythmic gymnastics made Faces in the Crowd in the September 6, 1993 edition. She is one of three rhythmic gymnasts to be featured in the segment. The others being Lisa Wang and Natalie Lacuesta who were both featured in the segment when they were only 12 years old.

    Missy Marlowe, albeit with her name misspelled was featured in the February 8, 1993 edition of Faces in the Crowd. The profile made no mention of Missy being a 1988 Olympian and praised her for the success Marlowe was achieving at the collegiate level.

    Jennie Thompson and Dominique Moceanu made a joint appearance in Faces in the Crowd as part of the March 29, 1993 edition. The young duo would go on to win the Junior All-Around at the U.S. National Championships in 1993 (Thompson) and 1994 (Moceanu). Their combined success as well as being coached by Bela Karolyi made Dominique and Jennie the two most famous junior prospects the American program had during the early years of the 1993-1996 Olympic cycle.

    Not only would Thompson and Moceanu become training partners under the most high profile coach in the country, but Bela Karolyi also invited Kim Zmeskal and Svetlana Boginskaya to train alongside them as well. It was perhaps the most staggering collection of fan favorites to ever be assembled under the roof of a single club. The most high profile coach in the sport had secured two former All-Around Champions. One being the most famous non-American in the sport (Boginskaya) while the other had been the biggest American star up until recently (Zmeskal).

    All while the two biggest junior prospects within the American program were training alongside two of the most famous gymnasts from the senior circuit. Dominique Moceanu went on to become an Olympic gold medalist. Unfortunately for Jennie Thompson, her senior career did not materialize as well as Moceanu’s. But Jennie’s career was unique in that she trained with Steve Nunno (coach of Shannon Miller), Bela Karolyi, and Mary Lee Tracy at various points throughout her career.

    Like Kristal Uzelac, Jennie Thompson remained a relatively well known gymnast despite her lack of success at the senior level due to the merits of her junior career. Kristal and Jennie are two of the most high profile juniors the American program ever had, and coincidentally both made Faces in the Crowd. Their inclusion in the segment is a reminder as to just how high profile both gymnasts were in the heyday of their junior careers.

    Before she became a 1988 Olympian, Brandy Johnson was featured in the February 9, 1987 edition of Faces in the Crowd when she was only 13 years old. At the 1989 World Championships Brandy would become the 7th American to win a medal in an individual event at the World Championships and/or Olympics.

  • Video: Italy's Vanessa Ferrari Slowly Getting Back Her Sheep Jump On Beam
    25 May 2022

     


    Italian gymnast Vanessa Ferrari is keen on sharing any amount of progress with her fans regarding her comeback to the gymnastics scene which she intend to debut in 2023.

    The 31 year old gymnast uploaded a video of herself getting back the sheep jump on the balance beam. 

    "THREE MONTHS AFTER THE INTERVENTION! Surely it is still early but the answer seems positive !!! " She captioned the video.


    The sheep jump is rated a C in the 2022-2024 CoP. 

    Here is its execution guide:



    Ferrari is the most decorated Italian gymnast of all-time. She is the 2006 World and 2007 European all around champion, and the 2020 Olympic floor silver medalist.

    The Italian gymnast had an ankle surgery last February.

  • Olympic Bronze Medalist Jessica Gadirova Won't Try For The Commonwealth Games
    25 May 2022

    British gymnast Jessica Gadirova announced on Instagram that she won't be trying for the Commonwealth Games which will take place between Jul 28 and Aug 8 in Birmingham as she will be focusing instead on the upcoming European and World championships.

    "Hello Everyone - quick update on my plans for the big year ahead. After a really busy and successful start to 2022, me and my support team have been looking at how to manage the workload with potentially three major championships still to come," Jessica wrote.

    "I’ve decided the focus will be to try and make the GB team for the European Championships and World Championships, therefore i have not put myself up for selection for the Commonwealth Games," she continued.

    "My aim is to have a long and successful gymnastics career so it's important to plan ahead and make sure I’m making the right decisions specifically for what I want to achieve this year and to keep myself fit and healthy in the process leading up to 2024."

    "Good luck to all my team mates hoping to make the team and hopefully I'll still be in Birmingham to cheer on my teammates from each Home Nations."

    The European championship will be held between 18 - 21 August in Munich Germany.

    At last year's European championships, Jessica won gold on floor, silver on vault, and bronze in the all-around.

    The 2020 Olympic bronze medalist has never competed at a World championships before.
