US CLASSIC

  • Overall impressions
    • This meet was goooooooood. It’s Classic. It’s not supposed to be this good. 
    • Jessica talks about happiness and feelings and a kinder, gentler gymnastics
    • The broadcast: Tim said “dickmount,” the Tim Daggett/Tom Forster passive-aggressive showdown about over-competing that we wanted to last forever, and much more
  • Listen. The WCC gymnasts walked out in capes. Simone had BILES on her back. All of our dreams are coming true. Obviously this has given us other signature leo ideas. 
  • Simone’s floor upgrades. I mean. Guys. We need to talk about this. For a while. 
  • Event Queens of E: Simone’s vault, McCusker’s bars, Simone’s beam and McCusker’s beam, and McCusker’s floor
    • Honorable mention to Hurd’s bars, Trinity’s bars, and Gilstrap’s next-level floor leaps 
  • Scoring records and our problems with the execution evaluation
  • The Pan Ams team has been named. Spencer has some concerns about the selection approach, and we need to commune about the absence of Sunisa on the team despite this.  
  • Our pre-meet mysteries: How MyKayla Skinner, Jordan Chiles, Faith Torrez, and Gabby Perea answered the questions we had going in, and our theories about Skinner’s floor
  • You heard right: We’re gushing about something Jade Carey did choreographically
  • Plus, the GAGEs did GAGE things, Morgan is right on track, and TRINITY TRINITY TRINITY
  • Emma Malabuyo pulled out with a broken tibia. We discuss the Texas Dreams injury situation.
  • We invented a new term “MenCAA” please adjust your phrasing accordingly from now on.

GYMTERNET NEWS

  • OK, there’s not that much time for gymternet news this week, but we just had to discuss the Maria Caire/UCLA story
