This week the GymCastic Crew discuss results and performances from the Russian Cup, including the absence of Anastasia Grishina from the World Team; the scandal also known as dun dun dun dunnnnnn GrishinaGate. We debate the merits of the Russian system in which all the dirty laundry is aired in the press versus a system with more secrecy like the US; casting updates from the Gabby Douglas movie ( this kid!) and her possible role on Dancing With The Stars (yes, she moved to LA last week); bestselling author Julie Cross’s new book Letters To Nowhere;  Jenni Pinches nerd-fighter worthy mobile game, USAG’s 50th anniversary magazine-gasm; and finally we present dramatic Tumblr readings from the gymternet.
