Hello Everyone!

It has been wayyy too long since I have posted on here! I hope that everyone is doing well and enjoying the summer! I have started back training for the 2014-2015 season and am excited to be getting back into the swing of things. I wanted to let everyone know that my cousin created a Facebook page for my father and I which I will be updating more frequently once my competition season starts. The Facebook page is Emily and Craig Scott's Olympic dream. It was initially created for my fans to stay updated on my Olympic journey but now I wanted to continue the updates with my next journey. Again, I hope you all are enjoying your summer. As always thank you for being amazing!

Why are so many people airing their political agenda on this site? It's annoying. I live in California. I can't afford health insurance. I don't make a lot of money. I DONATED. Go Emily! Do yourself proud. Do your family proud. Do your best.

Emily is my neice and one amazing young lady. Thank u to all who have and will support her. I am so proud of her. Very few know the real struggles this kid has been through. She deserves to represent our country in 2014. She is the epitome of the American dream. Go Em! I love you and so proud beyond expression of who u are. Thrilled to hear that your dad will be there to watch u. U make us all so proud to call u family. Thanks again to all of Emily's supporters. Never a more deserving young lady than this one.

An open letter to Tammy M.: It seems from your rather selfish and infantile comment that you are not in favor of what this lady is trying to accomplish. Maybe she has goals that your simple little brain cannot digest? Maybe your only goal is getting to the bottom of your industrial size bag of Dorito's. Might I suggest you find something constructive to do besides trash someone's dream. Judging by your adolescent text maybe a remedial class in grammar might be needed. Real people do use the F bomb in normal conversation. Have a nice day sweetheart!

Good luck Emily!! I know first hand the hardships that go along with trying to accomplish an Olympic goal.I am traveling down that same road and have been trying to raise money the same way. It made me very happy to see an article, this morning, about the hardships of being an athlete outside the mainstream sports. I will be cheering for you! USA!!

Emily Scott will show miserable little lards like Tammy Mazzullo and her hateful comments that being a professional athlete IS a brilliant career, with sponsorships, speaking engagements, and coaching in her future, ESPECIALLY AS A GOLD MEDALIST!

I was happy to donate to Emily. It is very hard work to attain ANY medal in any event at the Olympic level and you have to constantly work at it. How pride all of the USA can be with the exception of people like Tammy Mazzullo who is a very sad individual and was never taught the joy of helping others. Her comment shows anger, spitefulness and jealousness. This was not the forum for it. Americans take pride in their Olympians and their accomplishments and I believe we will do everything to help them. Even if someone donates a $1.00.

Why was her stipend cut? Who is in control of the stipends? The citizens of the United States of America ARE THE GOVERNMENT. The citizens just elect people to represent THE GOVERNMENT. I believe some sort of minimum stipend should be used for these above-average athletes.

I love the desire you have to fulfill your dreams! If my kids ever reach the Olympic level, I'd feel blessed to have others support that goal. Keep this in mind...everyone that has provided financial support anonymously will probably feel very proud of you during your event, knowing that they were able to give you a boost when times were tough. God bless you during training & in Russia!!

You are amazing! We think you were cheated out of gold, and I know it is hard for the judges to call cheating by another country. But America knows you have the heart to win the gold, and in our eyes you did!
