She got a 6.7 D-Score when she competed it at the FIT challenge in Belgium.I loved that routine. What's its D score?
I saw this a while back on facebook so she definitely made the decision a while ago. It brought a lot of critisism of Texas Dreams coming hard on the heels of Bailie Key having to retire due to injury without ever having really competed in NCAA. I hope Ragan can get that ankle fully heeled and enjoy a fulfilling collegiate career.It looks like Ragan Smith has now retired from elite gymnastics and will be at Oklahoma this upcoming year.
I had thought that she was going to delay entering OU until next year. Considering that it’s July and she would be moving in about a month, I wondered if she decided this awhile ago.
I love the Biles + layout - it just looks so cool! I cannot wait to watch tomorrow. It promises to be a great show. I am really rooting for MyKayla Skinner.I’m certainly excited to watch the U.S. Classic on Saturday night. It will be on the Olympic Channel - and I think USA Gymnastics will stream it on their YouTube channel.
Meanwhile, here’s a preview of Simone from today’s warmups. I believe that’s a triple-double she’s going to attempt - among probably other ridiculous things.
EDIT: And here’s her Biles + front layout. I can’t imagine what her D score on floor is going to be now. I think it was a 6.700 at 2018 Worlds.
Ummm . . . when Shannon Miller writes:
I mean that form is insane. She makes it look way too easy and I think it makes people not truly understand the true difficulty of what she's putting out there. Usually when we get gymnasts tumbling like that, it looks like they're running really hard and chucking the skills for dear life and it shows in the form and line, but Biles is seems to be in full control of her body (if not always her landings because of the insane power and bounce).Ummm . . . when Shannon Miller writes:
Watching this over and over wondering how it’s even possible to look this casual doing THIS skill. She makes them look so easy, I hope everyone watching understands just how difficult these skills actually are!! W O W"
I have no idea with this kind of scoring, but her routine was fabulous. In fact, so far, most of the ladies are doing incredibly. The US obviously has an embarrassment of riches here. I did not know Trinity Thomas was competing; what a nice surprise!They clearly have never seen how cameras cover gymnastics on the SEC Network. SIGH.
So.....was Riley overscored on beam? 15.100?
I had to search to make sure I hadn’t misunderstood. Seriously Japan?WUT? Mai Murakami is OFF the Japanese team?
