This is a good list.I found it more exciting to have gymnasts actually competing for gold, wish NBC had shown more of it. I still haven't seen all of it because they buried some of the events in the day sessions, especially mens' - couldn't find FX until I FF'd through my daytime recording.
ROC teams gold and other medals
China pulling out medals on BB
Mykayla persevering (hopefully no more sniping from her or her team)
Simone pulling out an individual bronze on BB
Artur's beautiful gymnastics
GB ladies bronze
Vanessa getting a medal at age 30
Larisa not being able to do beam final
Jade's vault disaster
Nikita not earning individual gold somewhere
Brody making a mistake that cost him a medal
Gymnastics is so hard that no-one can look flawless anymore, stuck landings not necessary
NBC coverage. Did I not see a single Canadian? I am not recalling. Need to watch on Peacock or NBC app replay.
4 person team leaves no room for specialists/injury(although I am not sad about how the medals got spread around this year).
FIG needs to take safety into account and allow one touch warm ups etc. again.
I'm really happy for Ferrari, Murakami, and Andrade and thought the EFs displayed a great variety.
No-touch warm-up is awful and needs to go.
Under 10.0 I was not opposed to the open-ended code but seeing what I looks like in practice, I do miss 10.0 quite a lot! Or maybe I miss compulsories even more.
Will look forward to worlds next year in my home town.
