Yang Yun - 2000 Olympics Team Final Beam
my fav gymnast just got married on 6 nov 2008!
husband is the individual all round champion in the recent olympics
so compatible hehe..
k enough of yang yun and gymnastics
time to study!
exam in 3 days =(
i am gonna get started today!!
first training (22 oct 2008):
tried 3 assisted bhs at the end of visit to aces training
didnt know how much to jump
xp was using alot of strength
but at least i overcame my phobia!
xp felt that i need abt 3 months to do a good bhs
that is if i train every week..
second training (1 nov 2008):
tried bhs on my own after a few assisted ones
managed to do it but i dun have much of a ‘feel’ to it
to me, gymnastics is all about feeling
without the ‘feel’
my bhs had been quite inconsistent
but i promised myself i will train hard for a robhs
third training (8 nov 2008):
feeling so tired and weak cos of menses
but i was rarely so determined
(ya i know..)
so i still decided to try bhs after like an hour of warm up
and i managed to ‘feel’ something!
confirming that my bhs had been quite consistent at the end of the day
i decided to go all out to try robhs
not afraid of dying
i managed to do a few okay ones
but i still didnt get the feel
and i would say i am still pretty scared to do it
phobias are supposed to be overcame
i will try harder next time!
you never know how scared i was to do a bhs
i could do a robt
but i didnt even dare to do an assisted bhs!
phobia resulting from wrist and back injuries
old and weak enough
i was too afraid to break my bones again
those who are close to me would have known..
and i know you are feeling so proud of me now! hehe
being scared is never the best way to solve problems
injuries are inevitable in almost any kind of sports
especially in sports like gymnastics and cheerleading
being in both of the sports before
i know how much trauma an injury could bring
but at the end of the day
being scared will bring you nowhere near your goal
and it might even drag other people down if it is a team sports
affecting everyone’s morale and spirit
just hope that everyone can overcome whatever phobia you have
be responsible to yourself
be responsible to your teammates
trust yourself and most importantly trust your teammates
they are the ones who catch you when you fall
i just cant stand it
whining and whining and whining
i’m beginning to understand how u felt
but i guess it wasnt so serious until to lose a fren for that
maybe werent friends to begin with
why do i even remember this?
no stunts for two months
only stretching and gymnastics!
i know i know
jus yesterday i still was saying
‘yirong just wanna cheer cheer cheer’
but now yirong changed her mind
dont ask me why
i feel i need to have you out of my life
i need to learn not to turn to u everytime i have trouble
(which i haven been doing for a very long time..)
i need to start a new life
i want a new life
i am supposed to be studying for tmr’s quiz (later in fact)
i am supposed to be studying hard
i miss cheering
i miss being a midtier the most
the satisfaction when you able to catch the flyer
even when the stunt went wrong
i miss gymnastics
i miss my round off layout
bishan gym anyone?
first time in many years i did on the floor again
not onto the crash mat
happy happy happy!
altho ended up with a swollen ankle
its as soft as xw’s knee cap now
but i think its worth it! =P
one of the very few occasions when i..
dont feel like eating =P
i still crave for food
and yet i have no appetite for them
i feel bloated
one of the worst things to be a girl
i hate cramps
body’s getting heaty
i forgot my lip balm again argh
and my lips feel so dry
especially at work
either under the hot sun on site
or in the super dry air conditioned office
and it doesnt help at all that
the water dispenser is not functioning properly
the hot water is hot
and the cold water is warm -_-
okok seems like i am complaining alot
but well actually
i am feeling happy! hehe
despite the body discomfort
i had great day at work yesterday
made new friends and i must say
i like talking to them!
all the subcons and other workers
they are all very nice ppl
nice to ladies especially =P hehe
made my stay more enjoyable
they said its better working at this site
cos there are at least a few ladies to see here haha
i should have opened up more earlier
instead of being in my own world as always
although i cant wait for my IO to end, still
i will miss them at the end of attachment
i will definitely go back to visit them!
its much better when i am jus going back to visit
instead of going to work haha~
might be going training later
i wanna train my front handspring!
read from cr’s blog tt i was actually e one
who made him fell in love with gymnastics
was actually quite touched haha
that i can have such positive influence =PpPpP
go gymnastics go go go!
i gonna have a happy day at work
and then a happy half day at work tmr!
told my supervisor tt i’m attending my aunt’s wedding
is was true!
just that i decided to pang seh the wedding dinner
and get more rest instead
its all the way in malaysia!
traveling gonna be tiring
and it defeats the purpose of me wanting to rest during weekends
but i gonna miss the good food
and seeing my family =(
work catching dramas has really been tiring
and i really need to rest
i am sleeping so little everyday
cos i was addicted to tv once again!
watching shows until 1am everyday
and getting to work late everyday too sighs
4 more weeks!
go yirong go!
i wish i were able to do more
and not just some simple moves
and its so much lousier now
next video will be better! =)
when a bus knocked down a dragon boater in school
he is in ICU now
i just hope he is fine
and i am concerned of what might happen to the bus driver too
noone wants an accident to happen
just hope both parties are fine..
on a side note
i wanna do front handspring!
i hope my wrists are able to do it now..
i want so much to go to ri gym on sat
but i cant!!
working 6 full days made me a no-lifer
i still enjoy my job tho =)
reading regine’s and spectrum’s blog made me cry alot
it reminds me of my batch leaving nygh gymnastics 6 years ago
after sweeping all the team golds in the nationals
but celebration dinner turned farewell party
and everybody cried
and it makes me wonder again
of things i dun feel like mentioning here
last nite HO i think hall 3 did great
hall 13 did great too
and i think they should be at least in the top 3
its not all abt winning
i told hall 3
most imptly is tt everyone enjoyed it
enjoyed the process
enjoyed the performance
we know that we have put in our best
thats enuf =)
had a great drinking session with hall 3 peeps
and a short visit to spectrum’s bbq
too bad no more food left =(
aces’s performance wowed the whole floor
by just doing simple stunts from 2 hr of last min training
cheerleaders are attention seekers
and will most of the time perform better when there is crowd
thats true at least for me haha
i guess the screams from the crowd jus make you high
its actually a form of encouragement and motivation
someone told me last night
once you leave the team you are no longer part of us
when you stop coming for trainings
even if you dun quit we will sack you
‘you are no longer part of us’
words can come out so easily within seconds
but the hurt is forever
ok, time heals
so its not really forever
it jus takes time to forget those words
or for you to feel unhurt by them
so is it what a team is all about?
i know, the person who said it might not be intentional
but those words still get to my head
argh shall forget about all the unhappiness
its time to move on and make new friends
should have moved on long ago
but i still have my passion for cheer
i didnt regret joining hall 3 cheer again
despite all the injuries and the traumatizing fall
i enjoyed cheering with you all
organizing trainings was a new experience
and it was kind of fun =)
i wouldnt say i was coaching
because i just wanted to help out
i feel proud for hall 3 cheerleaders
because before i stepped in and offered a little tiny help
you all have come so far all by yourselves
well done hall 3!
as for aces
although i am no longer in the team
i will always remember the times
when we all trained so hard together
the first time i competed in cheerock 2005
the first time we won champions in cheerobics 2006
and the second time we won to defend our title in cheerobics 2007
and proved that we were not just one time champion
to me it wasnt all about winning
i enjoyed the training process
even though unhappy incidents did occur
i believe these brought us stronger and closer
at least at that point of time
we know each other’s flaws and weaknesses
and because we were a team
we could only accept it
we have seen all the ugly sides of each other
which even the closest friends might not see
we learnt to accept or to ignore
and continue working together
aces brought cheer to me
and i thank aces for that
if its not aces i wouldnt have gotten in touch with cheer
thats why when cr asked me to join his team
i knew for sure that i wouldnt
there is only one sole reason
aces brought cheer to me
just this one, its enough
but i guess
human beings are forgetful animals
its not good to remember too much
i shouldnt care so much since i am no longer in the team
i will feel better this way
maybe you will think
maybe you shouldnt have read this entry?
