Here is a question did Jenny Rowland, go to JO nationals as a judge or coach? Or dose Adrian or Owen have to go and be the face for Flordia, cause if Jenny is judging I am sure there are rules she can\’t interact with the gymnast or coaches. Sorry for the small rant ,but here is a question I need to know

For me one of the craziest things ever to happen was that one time the Karolys got a Romanian girl to pretend to be another gymnast for some American competition (I cant remember their names) it was at this competition that they defected to the United States.

Don’t you think it’s good the men have more opportunity to make money with olympic medals though? I’m pretty sure the women are making much more money than the men once you consider the disproportional amount of endorsements and sponsorships they get compared to the guys.
