Monette russo biography
The Games more than lived up to the hype, says Raelene Boyle. I think that Aly is so experienced that she needs minimal coaching and could do fine working with someone else.
As the national team floor coach for the U. It is because of that higher standard and his history of success both at the high-performance and developmental levels that Gymnastics Australia wants him to bring down under. In his new role, Brestyan will work directly with the senior and junior national teams at regular camps in addition to leading the strategic direction for the program going forward to the annual Melbourne World Cups, the Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast next year, and to the Tokyo Olympics in and beyond.

Why would Aly retire just because her coach moved to another country to bcome a coach LOL. Aly has the talent for gymnastics onviously, the coaching is just bonus.
I think that Aly is so experienced that she needs minimal coaching and could do fine working with someone else. I hope she stays though of course!
Also mixed feelings about this. History has shown there are other gyms happy to work with gymnasts on a temporary basis, particularly Chris Waller in LA, though I think he got a new position?
And if her new coach is a better bars technician — I think it could turn Aly into an even greater all-arounder. Gabby on the other hand I think has the execution, but needs a new coach to push her skill set.
I think that he will bring Australia to the top level which is really exciting.
Even if Aly decides to bow out because of the coaching situation although I highly doubt she will she has three Olympic golds and six medals total. Not a bad haul. Four months after she made history for Australia at the world gymnastics titles, Monette Russo's Commonwealth Games hopes go down to the wire.
FOR several weeks, Monette Russo and her damaged ankle have been handled with the care of a precious family heirloom, but only tonight will Australia's best gymnast discover whether her Commonwealth Games all-around aspirations have been pieced back together. Russo, 17, who last November won Australia's first all-around world championships medal, was injured during a short landing on a training vault last month.
She was initially given no chance of competing on all four apparatus at her first Commonwealth Games, and still rated at no better than 10 per cent after a recent warm-up competition against Wales. If she's running around, jumping, feels great, then OK, we can push her, but I haven't done it yet. I haven't made her go per cent yet.
We're putting her her full program out tomorrow and then we'll know. She's definitely not per cent but it's a gamble for me: Liddick said that although Russo had advised team physiotherapists that her level of pain had improved from a 10 out of 10 a fortnight ago to a six or seven yesterday, the greatest impediment was her compromised preparation, particularly on floor and vault.
Russo's timing has been affected by her lack of training hours, while her limited amplitude could result in another short landing and further injury. The two most difficult tumbling lines in her floor exercise have already been watered down; even her celebrated balance beam routine is hampered because her right leg is her take-off leg for leaps and aerial skills. Every medical thing known to mankind has been done, so we just don't have time, that's all. If she is unable to join young teammates Hollie Dykes and Chloe Sims as an all-around contender, Brennan will fill the void on vault and floor.
Friday's teams event, in which England and Canada loom as defending champion Australia's main medal rivals, doubles as the qualification for the all-around and apparatus finals. The men's team competition opens the gymnastics program on Thursday.
