GYMTERNET NEWS

A mini bonus episode this week in which we discuss the latest urgent, somewhat crazy USAG developments that can’t wait another moment!

  • Thoughts on the Kerry Perry WE HAVE GREAT INSURANCE keynote from last week’s episode (HOLLA Iowa Gym Nest!) and the part that…doesn’t really add up?
  • Tom Forster is the new High-Performance Team Coordinator for the US women
    • Who is Tom Forster?
    • Initial reactions to the announcement (like “phew” and “hrmm”)
    • The positive tone he’s attempting to strike
    • What the elite coaches think about the move
    • How does someone who has been involved with USAG for decades convince the public that he can make change?
  • The changes we would like to see made to the camp system (they are many and extensive)
  • Why aren’t the 2008 Olympic teams getting the traditional 10-year reunion at nationals?
  • The “Cowboy Hat Indictments” coming out of Texas
    • Nassar and van Horn are indicted
    • We revisit Debbie van Horn’s role
    • Martha seems totally off the hook. Why?
