In the News

In the news, Uncle Tim and Jessica chat about:

  • Our favorites from Tumbling and Trampoline World Championships and what we think artistic gymnastics can learn from these daredevils with good form.
  • Are fake music endings acceptable in floor routines or a cruel joke on the audience?
  • The floor routine to the Sia song Chandelier by Ellie Boterell of England is everything!
  • The GymCastic Floor Music contest playlist is up on Spotify here.
  • A guide to shapashnikova variations on uneven bars, because Jessica sometimes needs help with bars.
  • Standouts at the Medellín World Cup: Yamilet Peña, Mariana Chiarella of Peru and Jossimar Calvo Moreno.
  • Mustafina’s latest interview where she discusses her injuries, coaching (can’t because she doesn’t dislike children enough) and frustrations with the bar code.
  • Will the open division at Shawn Johnson’s new NCAA-esque meet series allow for international elites to compete?
  • Oleg Vernaiev talks about training in war-torn, pit-less Ukraine.
