Gymnastics is going the way of ice skating – Iordache\’s two full twisting backs on beam to ensure she gets the D score whatever happens.
Where will it all end?

The thing about Brazil is that Marcos Goto, the new coordinator, wants to send a message to gymnasts and coaches: if you don\’t achieve the selection comitte goals you\’re out. What used to happen in Brazil, especially in the womens side, was that certain gymnasts already knew that they would compete no matter how bad, or good, they were. So now they specified very objective goals, scores, and if the gymnast achieve she\’s in no matter her background.

I don\’t personally agree with that but what happens here in Brazil is that the national team was based 70% from girls from Rio de Janeiro, Flamengo, and the others from Curitiba. We had very good girls from São Paulo or other cities and gyms that NEVER had a chance to even be invited to camps.

Marcos Goto coached Zanetti and Hypolito to olypmic medals, let\’s see what he can do for the girls in this Quad.

Read the gymternet article on programs not sending a full team to worlds. The article made sense. Could you comment on it in your next podcast? Love listening to your podcasts, especially the interviews. Thanks!

Did I miss something? You talked about the possible US Worlds team and didn’t even mention TRINITY! She’s not hurt, is she? I want her on the team, even tho I don’t see exactly how that would be.
But I just love her. I’m surprised no one mentions Jade’s lack of execution details. I think she has promise but like Makayla before her, she needs polish.
