About The Hosts
Jessica O’Beirne‘s mission in life is to make gymnastics as popular as the NFL. No, seriously, she’s not kidding. She is the creator and producer of the show. When she is not editing audio or scheduling guests, she works tirelessly to assure that gymnasts know they can continue to do the sport throughout their lifetime for health, fitness and fun over at masters-gymnastics.com. She has written about masters gymnasts for International Gymnast magazine. In partnership with Gymnastike’s Adult channel, her site Masters Gymnastics, attempts to maintain a list of every adult gymnastics class and masters meet in the world. Follow her on Twitter @OtotheBeirne or @AdultGymnastics or Google+
Blythe Lawrence of Gymnastics Examiner is a journalist from Seattle. She’s written about gymnastics for Universal Sports, ESPNw, International Gymnast Magazine and The Seattle Times. She is an editor for the International Gymnastics Federation. You should follow her on Twitter @GymExaminer because she is at every gymnastics event you’ve ever wanted tickets to.
Evan Heiter is originally from the great state of Michigan and currently residing where the players play: Atlanta, Georgia. He’s a former member of the University of Michigan men’s gymnastics team, and was fortunate enough to be on the 2010 NCAA National Championship team. Evan is a lifelong gym fan, with strong emotional ties to fluff pieces and form. When he’s not developing social content as a profession, you can find him crafting his own brand of (he thinks) humorous content. He loves to make others laugh almost as much as he loves laughing himself. In his spare time, he voraciously enjoys reality T.V., intense elliptical sessions and various appetizer-esque foods. Talk to him on Twitter @ yoEv
Spanny Tampson is one of the most beloved gymnastics-satirists in the game. Her montages are legen…wait for it…dary. Experience it all on her popular blog Spanny’s Big Fake Smile. Like her on Spanny Tampson Facebook, or follow her on Twitter @SpannyTampson where she hunts down #fouryearfans and punishes them.
Dvora Meyers was raised in the wilds of Brooklyn (way before the hipsters colonized) yet still can pronounce most of her Rs. Like all Orthodox Jewish yeshiva girls, she did recreational gymnastics for several years but with the fervor of one much more talented, and memorized all of the books about the sport contained in the public library. They numbered three.
Which is why Dvora went onto write a gymnastics book of her own. Due to a catastrophic failure at compartmentalization, she published Heresy on the HighBeam: Confessions of an Unbalanced Jewess, an ode to obsessive gymnastics fandom laced with high doses of Judaism. (As Forrest Gump once sagely said, gymnastics and Judaism go together like peas and carrots.) She also writes about arts, culture, and religion for a variety of publications including The New York Times, Slate, Jezebel, and The Atlantic.
She is also available to breakdance at weddings and bar mitzvahs. Just ask.
