Club Gym Nerd members can watch the podcast being recorded (pre-edits with all the bloopers and blunders that don’t make it onto the final show) and see video clips of the gymnastics while we discuss.
- The US will compete in Japan on November 8. We discuss the meet format and team selections
- British Gymnastics head Jane Allen is conveniently retiring and gave one of the worst interviews ever about it. Not that we have any opinions or anything.
- Why do parents accept abusive coaching practices?
- More countries are withdrawing from Euros. When is a continental championship not a continental championship?
- We celebrate National Coming Out Day and Danell Leyva
- We watched the first three episodes of the gymnastics documentary series Defying Gravity (we’ll have our thoughts on the rest of the series next week) and present our highlights and lowlights. Jessica explains why she thinks it represents a paradigm shift and Spencer rolls his eyes during the extensive fact check portion.
- All the gymternet headlines, along with your feedback about Phoebe Mills erasure, the disprespect of Larisa Petrik, and…manual expressing.
