The No. 1 Gymnastics Podcast in the Galaxy

Behind The Scenes: Gabby Freakin’ Douglas

Welcome to Behind The Scenes!

We record right here on this page at noon Pacific. Our weekly Behind The Scenes Q&A live podcast is for Club Gym Nerd members. It’s our appreciation love letter to club members for supporting our work. Here’s how to ask questions live. We discussed:

    • Everything about the Gabby Douglas official return announcement!
      • No, literally everything — start values skills, her competition strategy, how she could petition to Classic, how she can do the World Cup circuit and only go to camp once, how to avoid national team camp all together if she doesn’t want to ever go to camp etc. etc
  • National Team Camp scores and start values
    • Simone Biles’s all-around domination and which vaults she’s competing.
    • Who got hit hardest on scoring
    • E score drama
    • Extrapolating an all black Olympic team from camp results (full scores below)

First, Jessica I hope your voice gets better soon! After listening to today’s brief episode, I was a little bit let down. At the start of the episode, you stated that you heard that Gabrielle “Gabby” Douglas did not like being called Gabby anymore. I was disappointed to hear you say “that’s not going to happen”, yet then go on to discuss how she’s an adult woman and should be able to make decisions for herself with regards to a petition. I agree that she’s an adult woman who can make decisions for herself, and I think the community should respect her wishes and treat her accordingly, including her personal rebranding to let go of her former nickname. Gymcastic certainly has the reach, the audience, and the respect in the Gymternet community to be able to push a shift in the direction of her wishes. I hope you will consider supporting Gabrielle in this new chapter of her life and career. Thank you for all you do!

PS- I accidentally posted this to the forum first instead of under the episode, so I will be taking the forum post down.
