This week we talk to the 2012 Olympian Jenni Pinches from Great Britain. She talks to us about butt glue, working on-air with Olga Korbut for the BBC, life at the Lilleshall national training center, being coached by Amanda Reddin alongside living legend Beth Tweddle, and living a purposeful NerdFighter life.

    Also while I’m listening – Deng Linlin didn’t miss out on AA by the 2-per-country, she came 6th in the Final! Right after Sandra Izbasa, and just ahead of Huang Quishang. As a huge DLL fan, I store these facts :) Yao Jinnan missed out after poor scores on everything except bars.

    Any chance you are planning on interviewing Alicia? Always a fantastic interview but most people would love a little more details of what her post trial thoughts were.

    Just found the podcast and Love It. I’m getting caught up on all the archived episodes and found a little mistake on this page. Kaitlynn Urano is from the University of Iowa, not Iowa State, which matters a lot of you’re from Iowa (which I am not). I can’t believe my fellow Minnesotan Spanny didn’t catch it! ;)
