- This week, Morgan Hurd blessed us with a double layout to make it all better, and we have a preview of our major exposé Project K—where gymnastics and spycraft run into each other at full speed inside 1970s Romania—which will finally be coming to your ears over the next two weeks.
- We’re one month out from the NCAA season, and we’re talking new first years like Kayla DiCello, eMjae Frazier, Faith Torrez, and more. Plus, which teams face the biggest upheavals in the 2023 season (cough, Georgia), why we’re a little too excited about literally just some lines of tape, and the biggest storyline of the preseason: 5th-year transfers.
- A mini-commission on the history of South African gymnasts at the Olympics and other major competitions: the biggest accomplishments and what the future holds
- A mini-commission on Soviet training conditions and techniques of the 1980s and how that resulted in pushing the limits of difficulty.
- Plus, all the gymternet news you need
