Judging from her latest IG post, it seems Hurd won’t be petitioning to Trials. I’m a bit sad because she’s the one gymnast I’ve been following in the last four years.
At the virtual Canadian Nationals, Ava Stewart scored 14.5 and Ellie Black scored 14.250 on UB on Day 2.A look at the top scorers this season on UB (not sure how much the National scores from the US, JPN, and CHN competitors will go down or not internationally)

Get a vpn. I’ve been paying for one for months and haven’t really used it. This is the perfect excuse. Eurosport, or whoever is covering the Olympics in Britain, here I come.Serious question here how can you get a foreign feed during the Olympics? Do I need some sort of program to run by the geoblock? I want to watch the Olympics not the Simone livestream.
My sekret source says the team is known, but will not be announced publicly until June 17th.
Stewart's best result on bars was at the second technical trial in April where she got 14.65 (D Score 6.0). She did do a more difficult routine at day two of nationals though (6.1).At the virtual Canadian Nationals, Ava Stewart scored 14.5 and Ellie Black scored 14.250 on UB on Day 2.
I saw a post on Reddit (but with no source) that her petition was denied. I am sad too, she looked back on track at AmCup last year. If not for the *********, I thought she'd make the team last year. I wanted to see a bit more artistry on our team. Well, on to the Gators for her!Judging from her latest IG post, it seems Hurd won’t be petitioning to Trials.

This may be a 3 or 4 screen Os for me. One tablet VPN’d to Europe, one on Peacock, and the TVs toggling between NBC, MSNBC, CNBC, NBCSports and the Oly Channel. I have my fingers crossed that there will be some sort of comprehensive guide that helps me sort through it all.You can download the Opera browser and set your location to somewhere outside the U.S.
I'm hoping the NBC website will offer a feed for each apparatus like they did last time, so I can switch back and forth depending on who is up and where the action is.
So weird to see ROM without any teams again. Also no team for BRA, but I am so glad Andrade made it.Named/earned spots individuals on countries with no teams (there are others but these are some of the most notable)
ROM Larisa Iordache, Maria Holbura
ROM Marian Dragulescu
Rodionenko confirmed to R-Sport that for men, the team is more or less decided and for women, the three spots are decided and the last spot is between Elena Gerasimova and Lilia Akhaimova:
“We decided on the teams for the Olympic Games. For guys, we count on Dalaloyan whose recovery is going well and who has another month to recover. And there’s no equivalent replacement for him. That’s why the team is, first of all, Nagorny, Belyavskiy, Dalaloyan, and Kartsev. For girls, it’s Melnikova, Listunova, Urazova and, likely, Gerasimova. The choice is between Gerasimova and Akhaimova but Gerasimova is a bit more reliable.”
I’d assume that she will do it at some point. She has to do it at the Olympics or Worlds for it to be named after her. Tim and Nastia said that she’ll do it at Trials.Anyone know if Simone is going to the Yurchenko double pike at the Olympics? It'd be awesome if she did it at event finals.
