Our instant reactions after watching a full day of the women’s gymnastics qualifying round at the Tokyo Olympics:
- Simone didn’t have her best competition, Rebeca Andrade placed second AA.
- The US finished behind Russia by more than a point going into Team Finals.
- Defending Olympic medalists failed to even make finals including Sanne Wevers on beam.
- Danusia Francis may have gotten the highest Execution score of the meet.
- Chuso got the standing ovation farewell she deserved.
- Tom Forster used the words of survivors to justify his poor decision making.
Throughout the entire gymnastics Olympic competition we will be recording a live show from Tokyo. Our regular weekly public podcast will resume after the Olympics.
