She loses one tenth in D. It’s totally worth dropping the Double Tuck.

Any idea where Laurent was during women team finals? I thought he was head coach.

Melnikova’s FX score was a total gift. Jess Gadirova got a 13.7 with a totally clean set so a 13.933 for Melnikova with clear errors was too high. Urazova should have won bronze.

If you can do the stuff Suni did on that makeshift beam you can do anything

How does Urazova not get nailed on her vault E score when she actually LANDS with her legs still crossed?

Can Suni cash in and still go to Auburn? I certainly hope so! New house for her family customized for her Dad would be so great!

How many different routines does Suni Lee have in total? Between all the events, she could have a ton of different combinations of routines

How many times did Jess have to grab Scott or Lauren for support?

If Suni does go to Auburn, will she be the first all around champion to compete in NCAA?

Its amazing Suni was able to stay on bars with that set! Really stayed calm even when she was visibly off. Will she push for that again during bars finals for a higher D?

Is Rebeca the first “first” to do it in AA instead of an event final? I hope this question makes sense.

Liz Wilson

Do we think Suni will still go on to do NCAA?

Alison Lyons

What are the chances that Suni actually gets to enjoy being the AA champ – without the “non-Simone” asterisk? I think it’s super important to give credit where credit is due, and to not speak of Suni as “the one who won in a non-Simone Olympics,” like Morgan in 2017.

I’m sorry but I am not really a fan of Nina’a gymnastics. Her feet are always flexed! Unpopular opinion I know
