I am Italian and I\’m so happy to hear you liked our little juniors!! They are really talented and there\’s a whole program called \”Road to Tokyo 2020\” to prepare them and upgrade difficulties going towards becoming seniors. They\’re already better than some of our seniors, especially on vault, since only a couple seniors had DTYs last year. There are about 10 very talented juniors on this program and I really hope that the preparation goes smoothly until 2020 (one of them is Martina Basile, Junior European AA bronze medalist/Vault silver medalist in 2016).
Ding Dong the wicked witch is dead. Or in other words: Steve Penny has resigned.
