I downloaded this week’s episode from itunes today and though it claims to be episode 30, when it plays it’s episode 29? This might just be my computer but if it’s something at your end it’d be great if it could be fixed!
Also I can see you’re going to talk about Lucas Fischer’s p-bars, a.k.a my favourite moment of Europeans! Have you seen his music videos on youtube? If not, trust me they’re worth a look …
Loved loved loved your analysis of ncaas! However I dont think that Chelsea Davis upgraded her dismount for finals though. If you compare these two videos – the first routine of the season and event finals. The composition is exactly the same
Chelsea was one of the most consistent peroformers on bars this season. She competed that routine 17 times. Of those, she scored 9.9 or higher thirteen times! WOW! I’m hoping for her to be bars champ one these next two years she has left!
It’s just been released that Gabby Jupp has torn her ACL. 🙁 🙁

i’ve created a quiz related to the 2014 Women European Championships. It contains 40 questions about the upcoming competition and it’s in English:
You’re invited to try and solve it, some of the questions are really challanging 🙂
