  1. Wow I didn’t know there were any 5’9 gymnasts at that level! Gives me more hope that once I get back in the gym I might actually not suck because I’m too tall! Especially since bars are my fav event and she competes on those too!!! Even though I’m old (22)!!

    I’m not a super big fan of NCAA, although I like their bars routines and some beam routines, but I reaaaaally am not a fan of the all the screaming and yelling and squealing and bouncyness when saluting and stuff. I also don’t like most floor routines. I just feel very awkward watching them. Idk I just feel like gymnastics should be more classy or something. (Insert here the knowledge that I’m a huge Russia fan so this will probably make more sense to everyone reading this. I just like a different style.) BUT I do love seeing different skills being used, and more dance (when it’s done well) and I love doing Fantasy Gym so that’s fun.

    I’m really really digging Evan as a host/commentator. He’s hilarious.

    In the category of double back spins: Agnes Suto of Iceland (she was at 2013 Worlds) does it in her floor routine too!!! She’s super good at it.

    I’m kind of sad that being outside the US I can’t watch any live NCAA meets. I do remember watching Nationals a few years ago so I hope I get to see that! I don’t know much about picking gymnasts for Fantasy Gym but for the first week or two I checked out last year’s scores, and for the first week I scored 196+ and this week I got 197+ so I’m pretty sure I got it down now! I basically only looked at stats. I have Ivana Hong though, hope she starts competing soon.

    Thanks for sharing some of those hilarious survey answers!
