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:

  • Every single event final, even rings and pommel horse!
  • The judging of the balance beam final Mustafina’s score vs. Terramoto’s score.
  • Which side of the gymnastics debate won Execution or Difficulty. We have the statistical proof in this week’s edition of Sexy Data.
  • Which gymnastics need to sit in over splits until next year’s worlds or stop complaining about their E scores.
  • Bruno Grandi’s latest call for change. Why doesn’t he understand that EXECUTION IS NOT ARTISTRY!
  • All the ways in which the Italian Gymnastics Federation is like the Perez Hilton of gymnastics federations.
  • Would reducing the number of skills with a simultaneous minimum time limit on floor (for men and women) and beam, help address the lack of artistry in the current system.

Contest Alert!

Why:  We want to create a playlist of songs that should be used for floor routines.

What:  Send us the song title and artist name for a song that’s never been used in a floor routine before.

How to Enter: Send your song to gymcastic@gmail.com, and we will choose the winners at random. Not Twitter or Facebook, please!
