  • Peng reveals the secret to perfect beaming
  • INJURIES: Bailie Key is going to miss another season and Lexie Priessman is coming back from her 9th surgery
    • Peng takes us through the roller coaster that has been her injury history, from back injuries that could have left her paralyzed, to stopping gymnastics for a year, to her multi-season ACL drama
    • Plus, how Peng’s sixth year came about, why bridges are stupid and no one should do them, and where you can find her now
  • OPPORTUNITIES FOR COMEDY: Arkansas has a hog nose on a chain, Alex Hyland has Fresh Prince of Bel-Air floor music, and Maya Bordas wins the beam save award
  • HIGHLIGHTS: Natalie Wojcik is our freshman of the week, Gracie Kramer’s floor is Spencer’s favorite because of weird, and Claire Gagliardi from Ohio State has the most fantastic Yezhova (14:38)
  • CRACK OR CORRECT:
    • Rachel Dickson’s mathematically impossible beam score
    • Maddie Desch (1:05:55) receives 9.250 for a beam routine with no fall—we discuss what’s right and what’s wrong about this score
