Session 2: USA and Japan The American men had a bit of strange day. On one hand, their pommel horse was a success, as Mikulak, Leyva, and Orozco all hit - AND it was their first event. And Mikulak showed he is back to full strength on floor and vault, showing some soaring Kasamatsu double fulls ...
Although I'll be writing for www.nbcolympics.com here at the Olympic Games and also providing live tweets at https://twitter.com/AndyThorntonNBC, when time allows I'd like to give some further details here on Andy's Angle as well. Right now I'm awaiting for the third and final session of men's podium training to begin, and I wanted to give some ...
One of the big stories of 2012 has unquestionably been the resurgence of the Romanian women’s team. The 2000 and 2004 Olympic team champions have failed to medal in the team competition at both of the last two world championships, but this year have looked every bit as sharp and consistent as they did when ...
Huang Qiushuang has made quite the internet splash since a video of her new Amanar was unveiled online this week: This undoubtedly helps China TREMENDOUSLY. Most fans and experts have been considering China the likely 4th place team in London, primarily due to their lack of Amanars on vault and rather unimpressive performances from multiple Olympic ...
It’s now been just over a week since our five-member U.S. Olympic teams were finally named at the Trials in San Jose. I’m playing a bit of catch up this week and wanted to post my thoughts on the teams that ended up being selected. I think the Men’s Selection Committee was spot on. The five ...
Larisa Iordache Landing an Amanar and Sandra Izbasa Landing a Cheng: Sure, these are being done on a relatively soft landing surface, but this is a sign they're likely planning on throwing these in London. Might Ponor have one up her sleeve as well? Iordache's Amanar looks TOTALLY feasible on a competition surface, while Izbasa's ...
I have somewhat cowardly avoided posting my picks for a men’s team since watching yesterday’s finals and also learning of Mikulak’s sprained ankle. Perhaps I unintentionally jinxed Mikulak with my post yesterday regarding the incredible health of all fifteen Trials participants…or at the very least, I spoke too soon. Regardless, there’s no question we’ve had a ...
Two of the biggest question marks from the women’s competition are whether the falls from Kyla Ross (vault) and McKayla Maroney (bars and beam) will affect their Olympic chances. The four-for-four performances from Wieber, Douglas, and Raisman simply secured these three even more firmly onto this team, but Ross and Maroney are slightly more tenuous. Although ...
Although I wasn’t able to see the full coverage of men’s Day 1 unfortunately (didn’t get the TV station at my house), I did follow along all the quick hits and have seen numerous routines from Leyva, Horton, Orozco, Dalton, and Mikulak on www.nbcolympics.com. I wanted to go ahead and post my initial impression of ...
Here’s one final quick rundown of my most recent London StockWatch, ranking these 15 guys as we head into the first day of Olympic Trials: 1. John Orozco 2. Danell Leyva 3. Jonathan Horton 4. Jake Dalton 5. Sam Mikulak 6. Alex Naddour 7. Glen Ishino 8. Chris Brooks 9. Brandon Wynn 10. Steve Legendre 11. Paul Ruggeri 12. Alex Buscaglia 13. David Sender 14. ...
