BRENNA DOWELL (4:00)
Continuing our now two-year-old tradition of beginning the NCAA season by asking the final person to compete for last year’s winning team to be our first guest of the new year, today we are delighted to be joined by Brenna Dowell! We discuss that vault from championships, leaving NCAA to pursue elite and coming back again, having that story depicted in a movie, GAGE and its GAGEness, Italian culinary adventures, her future plans, and that time she wasn’t allowed to train with the team at 2015 Worlds.
