The C Score (2.0)

CBG and Barbosa reconcile

Posted on: June 4, 2009

Now that Jade Barbosa is magically training — and planning to compete — one-handed, the Brazilian Gymnastics Federation seems to want her back, according to this Globoesporte article:

Important points:

  • Her wrist is “doing better”
  • They were annoyed at her for gaining weight and not taking training seriously
  • Georgette Vidor, team coordinator, has observed her training and is satisfied
  • Irina Ilyashenko wants the team to stay in Curitibia all the time, but Vidor doesn’t agree, so Barbosa doesn’t have to
  • Brazilian choreographer André Marcelo Alves de Figueiredo, who lives in the USA, is working with almost all of the Brazilian gymnasts, including Khiuna Dias, Ana Claudia Silva, Bruna Leal, Ethiene Franco, and Letícia Costa

I suppose it’s not surprising that they were willing to fight with her when it looked like she might be done. Now they can’t afford to bicker with arguably their biggest star.

About The C Score

First there was A score and B score, now D score and E score. Where is the C score? Right here. In the form of my random thoughts about women's artistic gymnastics.
