Heads up! We have a bonus, extra mini-episode this week because we really need to talk about the Department of Justice.
- The Wall Street Journal and OC Register report that the Department of Justice is investigating sexual abuse claims AND financial and business misconduct within Olympic organizations
- Jessica has never been more excited about anything, ever
- Steve Penny, endorsement deals, and the post-Olympic tour. MMMM HMMM.
- Bruno Grandi, former president of the FIG, has died
- Comeback queens Chen Yile and Sanne Wevers are going to Worlds!
- Polish gymnastics jail exists and is NOT OK
- California passed a bill that would let college athletes collect endorsement money. We discuss what this could mean for the NCAA (say it with us, “a multi-BILLION dollar organization!”) and for college athletes.
- Everyone chanted for Melanie at the Paris World Cup and also just screamed through the entirety of floor routines.
- Plus, what you need to know for following US women’s selection camp this weekend. It’s this weekend, you guys! AHHHHH!
