Attention! We have very, very many episodes for you this week! A new Behind the Scenes episode about cats and musicals (but not Cats: The Musical) is currently available for Club Gym Nerd members, who can find all of their special goodies at our Club Content page. Also this week, you’ll be able to enjoy a commissioned episode about the 1984 NCAA Championships. But for now, Gymternet News.
On Facebook, International Gymnast provided some “problematic areas” in judging, presented by Tom Forster, in order to provoke discussion. And, boy, do we have some discussing to do.

- Jessica has feelings on the current state of NCAA rules for athlete compensation.
- Our thoughts are with the family and friends of SCSU gymnast Melanie Coleman
- An update on jump 1/2 to arabesque MANIA provoked by our 2024 compulsories episode
- Big NCAA signing news re: Morgan Hurd and Victoria Nguyen
- Shawn had the baby and Skinner got married!
