In the News

In the news, Uncle Tim, Lauren Hopkins, and Jessica chat about:

  • The Russian press conference that featured more empty plates than gymnastics
  • Hashtag Wars: the official hashtag has been changed from #2015wgc to #Glasgow2015
  • The Competition:
    • Who’s here and how they qualified
    • Competition format: six gymnasts per team, one alternate. Five gymnasts compete on each event in prelims with only four scores counting (5 up 4 count). In finals, only three gymnasts can compete and all three scores count towards the team score (3 up 3 count).
    • Lauren plays “How To Get Your Favorite Gymnast To Rio” with Uncle Tim
    • Non-nominative vs. Nominative
  • Injury report and which teams are on the “Oh Crap We Are Going To Have to Go To The Test Event” List
  • Gymnasts you must watch in prelims because although they might not make finals, they will make you believe in the Gym Gods: Thorsdottir, Berki, Wever, Zapata, Millousi and more.
  • Jaw-dropping skills you must watch lest you kick yourself forever: Bretschneider on high bar, Ablyzin on floor, Toni-Ann Williams’ Produnova off beam, Chustovitina’s Produnova on vault, Ruby Harold’s Zuchold, Schafer’s side some half.
  • Medal Favorites and our predictions: Brenna Dowell will win all the things!
  • Personal stories we are following in Glasgow
    • Cuba is back for the first time since 2003
    • Bahamas, Africa, Caribbean nations representing with exciting gymnasts
    • Team Jamaica: from zero to an super exciting, unique, dream making national team
    • Chusovitina and the women of women’s gymnastics
