  • How did John Roethlisberger and Laurie Hernandez do as a commentary duo?
  • Plus, the vault revolution is here thanks to Wong and Joscelyn Roberson, why bars was the best event of the meet, and Nola Matthews‘ floor, reinterpreted
  • Jayla Hang won the junior title, and Jessica bestows her “Knock Your Teeth Out” award for sissones
  • Hear what Chellsie Memmel had to say about developing artistry in US routines and reading the code of points
  • On the men’s side, we discuss how Brody Malone stacks up against the world right now, the best Donnell Whittenburg has ever looked, the pluses and minuses of this wacky bonus system, and the virtues of mounting with a quad on floor.
