Pan American Championships
- The Brazilian women won team gold over the US at the Pan American Championship. We discuss:
- Flavia Saraiva as team MVP and the beam rotation that made us remember why we like this sport
- Rebeca Andrade nearly getting a 9 E-score on bars
- A big week for Lexi Zeiss
- Skye Blakely’s magic beam feet
- The current state of US floor artistry
- And how much (if anything) should be read into what the US performance means for worlds
- Plus, Canada brought the new skills on bars, Jamaica missed the team final because of a leotard deduction, and the US men won a tight final over Brazil.
- And most importantly: the shorts incident, Barbara Achondo excelling at 39, the music tastes of the US team, and the glory that is Argentinian junior sensation Isabella Ajalla.
