IT’S JAMIE DANTZSCHER YOU GUYS

In this full episode with Jamie Dantzscher, we discuss…

  • Life with the Rybackis, why Jamie “left,” and why she came back
  • How Jamie feels about their coaching now (spoiler alert: NOT GREAT)
  • How weird it is that we still care about her 1999 floor music
  • The bonkers 2000 Olympic selection process
  • Speaking out publicly about Bela—then, later, and now—and a current sense of vindication
  • Why Bela took her off bars in qualification in Sydney
  • The INSANE story about why she didn’t salute after her team final floor routine
  • Being awarded a retroactive Olympic bronze medal, how she feels about it, and that famous press conference
  • The time a judge apologized to her for the corrupt scoring at nationals
  • What skills she would have done if she competed in an open-ended code
  • What her relationship with Vanessa Atler is like now

I was Jamie’s teammate at CO Glider’s for 5 years and this interview is highly triggering. I sat on that wall for hours. I too, finally went home to the shock of everybody.
