The No. 1 Gymnastics Podcast in the Galaxy

Episode 23: Lloimincia Hall & The American Cup

Llomincia Hall

This week we talk to LSU’s Lloimincia Hall who is currently ranked second on floor in the NCAA.  She and her coach, D-D Breaux talk about conditioning, gospel floor routines and preparing for hurricanes. Lloimincia’s interview prompts us to talk about religion, inclusion and persecution within the gymnastics community. Dvora gives us a ringside report from the Nastia Liukin and American Cup meets, then we chat about our favorite routines from the Russian and English championships.

Lloimincia Hall vs Florida in January 2013.

Be sure to check out LSU’s web-series Inside LSU Gymnastics.

I’m sorry to say I had to fast forward through Llomincia’s interview as her extensive emphasis on her faith made me uncomfortable. I enjoyed the rest of the episode though I always miss Spanny’s NCAA wrap up when it’s not on the show!

How dare she make YOU uncomfortable…geez. Maybe you’re the one with the problem?

Full ins off beam more recent than Dawes in 96: Besides Biles, I can think of Shawn Johnson, Catalina Ponor and Ohashi actually trains one as well.

A routine I can think of that’s in the real spirit of dancing into the corners is Catherine Lyons’s current routine. (Plus pretty unusual all around choreography and music choice for a gymnast.)

Speaking as a British person, we don’t compete as the British Empire! I’d love it if we did though – maybe a showdown with the Ottoman and Roman Empires?? The USSR could come too.

Yup, the Commonwealth is all the countries that used to make up the British Empire – a friendly reminder from those countries that while we used to own them, they can pretty much kick our arses at all sports.

Not quite what you were looking for, but Karpenko did a round-off, back handspring, full-in in 1998: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5sAyORNhoqw
