Vanessa Atler is Here!
- We get her honest takes on what skills are actually pretty easy, what skills…don’t look the best, and what skills have impressed her so far this NCAA season: from front aerials to 2 feet, to back handspring fulls, to gainers, and yes…bars elements.
- Would she teach someone her old floor routines if they wanted to do a tribute? (Do itttttttt)
- The GymCastic NCAA Team Matchmaking Service: We use our scientifically patented, NASA-tested, 8-tier system to match Vanessa to her perfect NCAA team
- We discuss Ellie Downie’s retirement, how many bone chips is too many bone chips, the newest chapter in the storied tale of Jordan Chiles beam covers, and Madi Dagen understanding the assignment
- Plus, NCAA gymnastics having its quarter-season crisis, a dive deep into what actually counts as a stick, and whether what happens out of bounds stays out of bounds
- All the gymternet news on Livvy Dunne, Bailey Ferrer, and Li Li’s response to the USAG host city controversy
