In the News

In the news, Jessica, Uncle Tim and Elizabeth Grimsely chat about:

  • The fashion, safety, random whistling sounds, top 40 music and insane skills from the Trampoline, Double Mini, Rhythmic, Tumbling and Acrobatic Championships
  • Can Dana Duckworth fill Sarah Patterson’s heels as she retires after 36 years at the University of Alabama
  • Gabby Douglas leaves Chow’s again–where should she go now? Jessica gives us an elaborate plan for Gabby while Uncle Tim speculates about the business end of things.
  • Then we answer your questions about men’s age limits–why did Kenzo become a world champ at 17?
  • Do pro gymnasts delay official retirement to milk endorsements? Or are they just keeping their options open?
