MEET NEWS

  • (2:30) L’International Gymnix — the Montreal floor strikes AGAIN
    • We break it down moment-by-moment, try to get a redo for special Belgians, and discuss Alyona Shchennikova almost tumbling into some dude
    • Kara Eaker wins the AA, Shchennikova does the best DTY she has ever done, and what happens when a front tuck on beam is too high to function
    • Lilly Lippeatt’s WOW floor combo
  • (19:18) Russian Nationals!
    • Luba from Gymnovosti is here to fill us in on all the goodies from last week’s Russian Championship of Splats—who won, who fell, who won AND fell
    • Who made the European Championships team (for now), and why it wasn’t Aliya despite ALIYA
    • The returns of Paseka and Eremina, how Daria Belousova made Jessica into a prophet, and the most important news of all—our annual Tatiana Nabieva update
    • What happened to Artur Dalaloyan on the men’s side, Nikita Nagornyy’s near sweep, and that time the Rodionenkos retired Kuksenkov without his permission because of course they did
    • All the horrible things Valentina said this time
    • (47:18) Liubou Charkashyna, president of the FIG Athletes Commission, said American abuse survivors are in it for the money. Well fab.
