We’ve received word that McKayla Maroney is at least back in the gym after the concussion she suffered at the recent Visa Championships, and we haven’t received any information suggesting that she won’t be able to compete in this week’s Olympic Trials in San Jose. But the truth is, we still need to be ready ...
To my knowledge, no gymnast has scored a 16 on beam since the 2008 Olympics – partly due to the fact that the number of “counting” elements for the women was reduced from 10 down to 8 after Beijing. With two fewer skills to add points to the difficulty scores, it’s obviously harder to score ...

Russian head coach Alexander Alexandrov recently stated that Aliya Mustafina, Viktoria Komova, and Anastasia Grishina were essentially locks for the Olympic team. Based on the way things have played out this year, that’s certainly the way it was looking to all of us too. The other two spots have appeared to be up for grabs amongst ...
It turned out to be a nail-biter right to the end, and for a few seconds I really thought that Gabby Douglas might overtake the defending champion Jordyn Wieber on that last bar routine. It was definitely one of the very best ones we’ve seen from Gabby – she connected the full spin to elgrip ...
Three of the fifteen men chosen to compete in the upcoming Olympic Trials are particularly strong on floor, vault, and high bar, and were chosen for the Trials primarily based on these events. These three men are Alex Buscaglia. Joshua Dixon, and Paul Ruggeri. Let’s take a look at their routines on these three events ...
WOW. It was another exciting day in U.S. men’s gymnastics, with some of the very best in this nation’s history fighting to earn their places on this year’s national team and Olympic team. And all with only about 36 hours of rest since the conclusion of Day 1. The finale between Leyva and Orozco was stunning. ...
I had to rewatch last night's women’s competition this morning before finalizing my thoughts on it. There are so many great gymnasts with so many different strengths…and also so many things to consider as we attempt to put together this Olympic team. Overall I thought it was an excellent meet – MILES better than last ...
Before the start of the women’s U.S. Championships in St. Louis this evening, I wanted to throw out my most up-to-date London StockWatch List, including all of the major moves since the recent U.S. Classic. I’ve got some discussion on several of the Olympic contenders and some things to watch for in the competition below. Women 1. ...
I’ve already got plenty to update on my London StockWatch after last night’s incredible men’s competition. Here’s my most up-to-date rank list of the men’s Olympic contenders: Men 1. Danell Leyva 2. John Orozco 3. Jonathan Horton ...
