Not so Magnificent

Whoa Bela. What happened to your team?

Last night's women's gymnastics qualifiers were no where near the level of gymnast he used to train! I'm assuming it is Marta who is now head coach, but I wish Bela was still in charge. I thought she would keep the gymnasts at the same level he trained them at. . but maybe not.

I suppose there was some controversy that Bela Karolyi was too harsh as a coach, but his team used to win! In 1996, he had trained the Magnificent Seven, who were amazing gymnasts and performers. These new girls are not at the same level as Shannon Miller, Dominique Moceanu, Kerri Strug, Dominique Dawes or Kim Zmeskel.
