Europeans are held between february and may, it depends. Anyway with Ponor retiring, the americans not knowing what they will do (goodbye gals), Komova uncertain, only Mustafina remains (and with what she has accomplished, you wonder if she will continue too), but for now I didn't hear anything about her retiring.
Interview with Aliya following the Olympics with English subtitles, says she plans to keep training.
My god she looks amazing, gotta love one of the comments "Bout to move to Russia and learn Russian and convert to Islam to try to smash" I wonder if a HF Lounge poster said that or is the phrase starting to catch on on the internetz

Apparently McKayla is an Angels fan... one more reason to like her even though I don't particularly like her gymnastics. BTW I think that pretty much 99% of the gymnasts are "high manteinance", more so the americans.
Mustafina seem very shy, like her comment " what's important to me is that everything in gym to be good and everything in school NOT BAD".
With that dress she must not be that "high profile" though, good for her.

Her mother is seriously getting worried over a bunch of sarcastic "marry me" messages on the internet?
And she needs to stop flattering herself, thinking she will have stalkers
I think you underestimate the creepiness of people. A lot of those comments are sarcastic, but a lot of them probably aren't. Shawn Johnson had a stalker, so it's not like it hasn't happened before.
Anyway, according to that article she signed with William Morris. Looks like she's more interested in becoming a celebrity than an athlete. That's fine, but that pretty much guarantees that we don't see her in Rio. I want Aly and Jordyn to make it back to the Olympics, although the odds are probably against them as well.
Patriots owner Bob Kraft, also an Aly Raisman fan, lol.
