update on Valeri and Brazil

Cedrick Willian on Gym Blog Brazil posted an important update on Valeri.

The original is in Portuguese. Here are some points I gleaned from Google Translate:

– short term goal is Tokyo 2020. Long term is important, as well.

– National Team training camp was Jan 7-17th

– no more weighing gymnasts

– nutritional orientation

– buffet at camp offered juice and dessert (yes, dessert!)

– doctors, physiotherapists, nutritionists, physical trainers and biomechanist involved

– first day medical assessment and specific skills test

– other days training: morning 08:30 to 12:30, afternoon 15:30 to 18:30.

– Saturday morning only and Sunday off

– all apparatus each day. Ballet and choreography rotations

– Brazil travels to WOGA Jan 28th – Feb 10th

– Jr and Sr team members will compete WOGA Classic in February

– the feeling is that the doors are open for everyone who aspires to National Team

The beginning of the democratization of Brazilian women’s artistic gymnastics
