308: 2004 Olympic All-Around Final (Commissioned)

Jun 12, 2018 | Commissions, GymCastic, Podcast

LISTEN HERE

 

This week’s episode is commissioned by Club Gym Nerd Member Emily, who asked for an episode all about the 2004 Olympic All-Around final: “This meet made me fall in love with gymnastics. SO. MANY. TEARS.” 

We begin this week with our 100% live, real-time commentary on the competition itself, AS WE WATCH IT. So, if you want to sync up and watch the meet along with us like the cozy little family we are, follow THIS LINK and press play when we tell you to press play. We have a heaping pile of thoughts about Khorkina (obviously), Carly, Pavlova, Romania, China, Ukraine, Le Pennec, Slater, and some of the worst leotards…just ever. After the commercial break we pick up the broadcast at the 58:17 time stamp.

But that’s not all! We’ll also break down the epic NBC fluff (Deva castle, Round Lake-Chernobyl, Khorkina inventing hallways, reality show opening credits, a diva is magical—the usual), one of Trautwig’s worst moments ever, and poor Carly’s cringe-worthy appearance on Letterman following her gold medal (Part 1, Part 2).
