This is our commission giveaway episode! We gave away a full commissioned episode to one randomly drawn Club Gym Nerd member, and the winner was Inga, who really came through and commissioned an episode on THE KIMS:
What are all the elements named after Nellie Kim in the code of points? Who actually performed them first and when/what competition? Did Nellie Kim ever perform them, and when did she perform them for the first time? When did she name them after herself?
The Nellie of it all
- Who is Nellie Kim, and how did she become one of the most powerful people in gymnastics?
- Why does she have 7 skills named after herself in the Code of Points, and when did that happen?
- The badass revelation that was her vaulting in 1976
- We take each of the Kims in turn: which ones are totally legit (at least one! Potentially some!), which ones reflect the hustle of a winner, which are just the most brazen attention grabs, and which are just the silliest
