Simone Biles is the first female gymnast in recent years whom I would have no hesitation in calling the best all-arounder in the world TWO years in a row. We could have easily said that about Kohei Uchimura on the men’s side for several years straight, but when was the last time we could truly ...
So I’ve been away for a while again...a brand new job and brand new city in the last year have kept me quite busy. But I’ve quietly still been keeping an eye on things since I last posted a year ago, and since we’re now exactly halfway into the quadrennium and there was plenty of ...
Randomly came across this. Cool stuff! Thanks to Mostepanovafan for the montage - put together back in 2009. Notice, unfortunately, that no recent gymnasts are featured. Today's routines are skill-skill-skill packed into the same time frame as the more artistic and innovative routines from years past. I certainly don't mind seeing some of the more difficult skills ...
Most would agree that Simone Biles, Kyla Ross, and McKayla Maroney have all but locked up three of the four available spots on the U.S. women’s world championship team. The fourth spot – should Martha Karolyi choose to use it – is certainly up for grabs and will be determined at the upcoming World Team ...
Looks like Biles' near meltdown at the U.S. Classic was a fluke after all – she looked absolutely solid and confident on night one. Taking a little difficulty out of beam proved to be a great idea (easier acro series) – I would have never predicted she’d score a 9.2 in execution on beam and ...
Victoria Moors Floor Routine at 2013 Pan Am Games: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GU-2sADwuiw We saw the popular Canadian unveil the spectacular laid-out double double earlier this year at the 2013 Canadian Championships – not long after American Mykayla Skinner made waves for throwing the very same gutsy move in the United States. In this weekend’s Pan American Games, Moors didn’t quite ...
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 ...
