I’m pretty sure the Russian coach is not wearing suspenders (Unfortunately, that would be awesome)

That last listener’s letter was EVERYTHING. Also, the delivery made it justice, thanks, Jessica. I was legit belly-laughing at 1 AM.

RE: Jessica\’s comment about drinking in gymnastics.

YES! I was a judge in a certain midwestern state for a few years. Meets that span whole weekends are a mess. The coaches and judges often party together at the meet hotel, which is just ridiculous to me. No one should be showing up to judge or coach day 2 of a meet hungover, or still drunk. Blew my mind. If I had known that was going on when I was an athlete in the same state, I would\’ve been furious.

Not only is it unsafe, it\’s unfair. The judges spoke highly of the coaches they drank with. I know the gymnastics community is small with overlapping between coaches and judges, and that judges and coaches are often friends, but this seems like a huge conflict of interest, especially in the middle of a two or three day meet.

Maybe you guys discussed this in a previous podcast and I missed it but do we think Ohashi is really going to try for 2020 beam specialist?
