TEXAS NIGHTMARES

Before we get to this week’s commission, a few…erm…rage thoughts on what we’ve heard about Texas Dreams this week from Ashton Kim and Kennedy Baker.

2000 TEAM FINAL

This week’s episode was commissioned by Club Gym Nerd member Casey because “it’s all fun and games until Russia goes to beam.” We discuss:

  • Vault conspiracy theories. Was the vault also set incorrectly in the team final?
  • Everything on beam is a Shushunova. We fight about it.
  • The US team getting locked out of the arena and what it symbolizes
  • Support, refute, or qualify: “Romania wins with boring gymnastics.”
  • The concept of Maria Olaru
  • Khorkina’s vaulting, Leonardo Da Vinci, and pumpernickel
  • The importance of Liu Xuan and Ling Jie on floor
  • Russia. Beam. It happened. We need to talk about it
  • Dong Fangxiao’s age and the stripping of China’s bronze
