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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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. ...
Competitions like this weekend's U.S. Classic tend to stir up a lot of “dust.” With so many top contenders competing on various selected events, yet several notable absences…and so many falls and nervous mistakes, yet plenty of very strong performances as well… we often find ourselves caught in a huge hazy mist at the end ...
After being away for the weekend, I finally had the opportunity to watch the entire NBC broadcast of the Women’s Pacific Rim Championships. Below are the thoughts that ran through my head, in no particular order: The USA women have never enjoyed such a monopoly over the top all-around gymnasts in the world, and ...
I’ll be periodically updating my “London StockWatch” picks between now and the selection of America’s Olympic teams – particularly after major competitions, injuries, comeback debuts, or any other time something happens that seems to affect the statuses of some of the top Olympic contenders. This is one of those times. Following the American Cup, and also ...
