Kyla Ross looked very good and did deserve the title, despite not having a whole lot of competition (not to diminish Peyton Ernst’s outstanding performance). Kyla’s beam was solid but certainly not spectacular, and would certainly benefit from some upgrading and perhaps a little creativity. I’m never a fan of using a simply back handspring layout ...
This was just put up today. She’s now added the wolf jump after the punch front, which she does very, very well and which now gives her 0.1 in connection under the 2013 code of points. I do think that overall this routine is a little choppier than the one she competed last year – lots of ...
Simone Biles’ New Skill – Check Out Who Performed This Eight Years Ago! And Some Pre-Meet Thoughts On The U.S. Classic
Simone Biles turned a lot of heads in yesterday’s podium training for the Secret U.S. Classic with her incredible double layout with a half turn – not to be confused with a laid out double Arabian, in which the half turn occurs early in the skill and is supposed to show a laid out double ...
John Orozco’s Routines 2013 Men’s National Qualifier Orozco is still coming back from the torn left ACL and meniscus he suffered while performing a parallel bars dismount on the post-Olympic tour in October, and thus didn’t compete floor and vault in this competition. However, he recently indicated in an interview that he intends to perform all ...
Bobby Baker Floor Exercise 2013 Men's National Qualifier Seventeen-year-old junior gymnast Bobby Baker of Aerial Gymnastics in Lemont, IL may be the only gymnast in the world competing a full twisting double front on floor exercise. He did throw the skill on both days of this year’s Winter Cup as well, but fell short the first ...
Is Afanasyeva being underscored? I already touched on a few of the scoring concerns I had in the men’s competition. Now it’s time to look at a few of the women’s. This post will be about Afanasyeva’s floor – which many would agree is currently the best in the world. Ksenia Afanasyeva Floor 2013 World University Games ...
I just had a chance to watch all of the men’s even finals in their entirety. Here were some things that stuck out: RUSSIA! Wow this team is looking phenomenal right now. The addition of Nikolai Kuksenkov - the transplanted Ukrainian and new World University Games all-around champion – is HUGE in and of itself, but aside ...
I did catch the women’s vault final this morning, so I wanted to post a few comments. I’ll have more on some of the other finals later on. This women’s vault final was great. What an incredible surprise to see that Afanasyeva has suddenly become a world medal threat on vault! Her Amanar was fantastic, and ...
What a treat to see the Russian A-Team competing essentially full difficulty and looking so good. With the way they are preparing their team right now, you’d think there was a team title at stake at this year’s world championships – which of course there isn’t. Even so, it will be great to see them ...
It’s time to get back in the game! It’s funny – after following the world’s best gymnasts so closely for four years (or more), analyzing their every move, writing about them several times per week, becoming fully invested in the emotional Olympic selection process, and then traveling to the Olympic Games in London to experience the ...
