My mother and I were wondering, in the history books/ when these Olympics are talked about in the future, will they be referred to as the 2020 Olympics or the 2021 Olympics? I've noticed in the arena it says Tokyo 2020.

Is Jade going to do the triple double layout? Also what do you think about it being valued a K?

Nastia’s agents posted about Jade being represented by them. Is it for a NIL contract or did she end up going pro?

Also toms FB post today said the alternates trained in a town an hour away from the main team - didn’t they train all together until the main team moved to be closer to the village a few days ago?

How long do you anticipate the stream of MAG & WAG finals to be?  Also - what about AA finals?  I need to “disappear” from work for the appropriate time to watch…..work will have to wait….we all have our priorities

Sorry in advance if this is a silly question, I'm super new to MAG and have been more of a casual fan of gymnastics in the past - but getting to know more due to your awesome podcast! Why do different gymnast wear different combinations of pants/shorts/socks for different events? Is there any rhyme or reason, or is it just preference?

(If you happen to read this on the show, I'd prefer to remain anonymous.)

On the BTS for men's podium training, Jessica started to mention something about Brody's maybe injury/maybe not injury and then the conversation switched topics before she could finish. What was the update (if there is one)? Thanks so much for your tireless coverage!

In case they don't answer on the podcast: I believe they wear the shorts for floor and vault, and pants for the other events. I'm not entirely sure of the reasoning, but it's something about the other events being more in the air and higher risk of the shorts riding up, or something like that? (Because heaven forbid we see their thighs; that's only okay for the women! /s)

@sorator its because men have, well, very noticeable external genitalia, whereas women do not
