Louis Smith should be reprimanded

Louis has made many mistakes over the years. Seems to enjoy controversy.

Though this one is more juvenile than anything else, I messaged British Gymnastics recommending he be reprimanded. His reaction to the public furor was undisciplined at best. He’s a bad ambassador for the sport. This behaviour is exactly what we want to discourage.😦

Carly Patterson said she didn’t mind, if that’s a factor.

As a one apparatus contender on one of the best teams in the world, Louis should be doing everything right to stay on the A squad. There are a dozen guys waiting to step into his place.

One thought on “Louis Smith should be reprimanded”

  1. So gross. Women’s gymnastics have enough creeper fans to deal with (almost every single comment on any female gymnast’s page is from some guy telling them how “sexy” they are, or some other comment on their appearance) without encouragement from someone who should be an exemplar.
