A Compilation of Gymnastics Haikus

Since I had some free time post holidays, I decided to compile some gymnastics haikus.
If you don't know what a haiku is, it's a poem with five syllables on one line, seven the next and five the last.

On Jordyn Wieber:

No Rio for Jordyn
Gymternet sadness is for all
Gabs and Aly alone

On Aliya Mustafina:

Queen Musty reigns Russia
With ugly triple twists and
glorious Onodi 

On Brenna Dowell

Brenna Dowell in NCAA
At Oklahoma she will do bars
And bring tens for OU

Ksenia Afanasyeva's got one too
Afan on the floor ex
She tumbles with perfection
A gold medal she wins

Bailie Key

Bailie Key wins all
Not a medal she has not won
Wait till she's senior

Simone Biles

Simone is world champ
All around beam and floor ex
Is she new Kohei 


Kyla is so clean
Consistent and steady they
say she  won't upgrade

Team USA

Team USA wins
them all in Nanning China
The gold medals all shine

King Kohei

Kohei the king of MAG
Wins seven gold medals. Who will
beat the king of gym?

Yesterday, US gymnast Maddie Desch announced her retirement from elite gymnastics via her Instagram account.

Maddie, who trains at Great American Gymnastics Express, aka "GAGE" explained she came to the decision to retire due to a nagging injury that prevented her from training at the elite level.

I love NCAA gymnastics.

Katelyn Ohashi Sets the Rumors Straight

American Cup winner Katelyn Ohashi has been out of competition for a while due to injuries.

Since she won the American Cup in March, she's been largely absent from the USA Gymnastics scene. In April, she turned down international assignments at the City of Jesolo Cup because she was recovering from shoulder surgery. She was absent from the national championships in August, presumably for the same reason.
