In the News

Our coverage of the 2014 Gymnastics World Championships in Nanning, China continues with a full recap of the women’s and men’s all-around final.  Uncle Tim, Lauren and Jessica chat about:

  • The podium and the BEE!
  • All of the new members of the Hot Pink Nation.
  • Gutsuism, fair or unfair.
  • Larissa Iordache — She finally did it and had higher start value than Simone.
  • Sexy Data –Who performed the highest difficulty and scored best in execution  for the men and women?
  • SamGate — What happened with Sam Mikulak’s parallel bar routine?
  • Yao Jinnan’s bonus wipeout moment at the end of her floor routine.
  • The Longines Prize for Elegance — Should the same gymnast be able to win more than once?
  • Vanessa Ferrari — Her gymnastics prowess and the leaps that drive us nuts.
