IN THE BEGINNING … was Blythe Lawrence

In the early days of the gymternet, Blythe was the only trained journalist. To start she wrote for a site called Gymnastics Examiner.

Liked and respected by all, Blythe got called up to work for FIG in Switzerland. She speaks French. That helps.

When Aly Raisman asked her to collaborate on her book Fierce, Blythe left FIG.

Happily — for us 🙂 — Blythe is back posting under the name Rocker. Check a sample post with the highlights of this past weekend.
