    Gymnastic news #22 - Tokyo or bust

    US MAG podium training ... The reigning US AA Champion, whoever he is, looks like he had an accident in his pants but it's probably just a lot of 4$$ sweat. ETA: Way better after he changed to shorts.

    2016 US WAG Team had three Olympic AA medalists. Was the last team that had that the USSR WAG Team in 1976?

    https://www.instagram.com/tv/CQo0Lf-DY8Y/ The male commentator is really stupid. He attributes the Soviets liking the FX to the music, which is Shannon's Let the Music Play. However, the Soviets probably actually like the FX because the tumbling and dance are clean, complex and fit the music...

    Uncle Dick was the first expert figure skating TV commentator possibly ever, but certainly in the US. He used his reputation of having multiple Olympic Championships, multiple World Championships, a European Championship, multiple North American Championships, and multiple US Championships, and...

    During Skinner's Trials Day 2 beam, there is a guy in a red shirt in the stands losing it. He is standing and convulsing, particularly when she does the pass with the full twist. https://youtu.be/YoHFf4txOtw

    I like the contrast in appearance between Andrea Joyce and Nastia Liukin. It's like a side show.

    Skinner is a full-on Monet. She looks okay from far away but up close it's all messed up.

    Jordan is the 2021 "Raisman", in a good way. I think as many as possible will make it into the selection process. Only 3 gymnasts performed significantly different than the group, Simone, Suni Lee, and Jordan. Jade basically tied for 4th, given for what she is competing.

    Jade didn't know she was going to be good enough to fill a non-nominative spot when she earned it via the World Cup. It was a choice she made years ago. The US is actually lucky that Jade kept her ability after so much time. Gymnasts usually have a much smaller peak window.
