This week Jessica, Uncle Tim and Evan Heiter preview the 2014 P&G Championships:
- Since Evan will be doing commentary for the preliminary competitions live broadcasts, we try to come up with new descriptions for commonly used commentary-isms!
- We predict the winners, dark horses on each event and the all-around for the women’s junior and senior field.
- Jessica and Evan argue about who will steal the junior show: Deanne Soza, Jordan Chiles, Nia Dennis or Norah “Lord of the Beam” Flatley.
- A listener implores us to examine the rare and uncommon bar routine of Miss Lexy Ramler.
- Why Rachel Baumann’s tumbling is comparable to Beyonce, and Rachel Gowey is the Laurie Hernandez of this year’s floor joy.
- Our sentimental favorites, the kids who may not medal but we can’t wait to watch: Morgan Hurd, Lauren Navarro, Emily Gaskins, Amelia Hundley.
- The infamous ants-in-your-pants choreography for Gabi Gheorghiu that Marta Karolyi did.
- We give advice about managing body image when starting adult gymnastics, celebrate our listener-scientists, and find out about all of the “country gymnastics” that our listeners do!
