U.S. World Team Trials 2023: Day One

U.S. World Team Trials 

Jessica is in Texas watching live. Spencer is at home watching the stream. We will go live right here on this page Tuesday, September 19th about an hour after the meet ends (updated: 7:45 Pacific-ish). Here’s how to ask questions live.

We discussed:

  • The weird day of falls for Simone and the official word from the FIG on her vault value
  • Why Shilese got such a low score (for her) on bars and what connection bonus was lost
  • What Jade Carey’s coaches said about the vault situation
  • Who we think is a lock for the World team and highest scoring team
  • The strange E scores on floor especially Josc vs Kaliya
  • The spectaculars of Kaliya Lincoln and Leanne Wong
  • Katelyn Jong injury and what Laurent yelled to Jordan Chiles before her last pass
  • The wins! DiCello changed her beam skills and Josc added back her single bar release.
  • What events we’d ask gymnasts to do if any, on day two
  • And of course, everything you couldn’t see on the FlipNow live stream that happened in the gym

Day 1 Scores
Day 1 - 2023 World Team Trials

Here’s how our event coverage works:
1. We give everyone the main headlines in the first 10-15 minutes.
2. We continue our conversation exclusively with our Club members.
3. What if I want to hear the rest of it and all the years of bonus content and interviews? All you have to do is Join the Club.

I’m waiting to hear that Simone threw a simonevacs on bars. She’s short enough and has the power to. That’s her next step towards total domination.

Thank you for starting with Shi’s bars…I definitely had the same though as Spencer and they inverted the score.

Hi Tamara. First, thank you for your support! If you want to watch/listen live you need to click on the embedded YouTube video when we’re live. If you click on the title of the YouTube video it’ll take you to a private YouTube page where you can chat with other club members during the live stream.

Once the live show is finished, we upload the audio version to the webpage, add it to the podcast players, and then we add the shorter video for non-members to the page.

I hope this helps. If you have further questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to You might also find answers on the Forum. There’s a special section that’s only available to club members where some of these questions get asked/answered.

The E score on Kaliyah and Jos is night and day different! INSANE!

I thought I read somewhere that Simone was doing Words and Pan Ams. Is that even possible?

If Kaliya had deductions for execution/artistry, what the heck was Josc scored on? Her form is bad and there is no artistry. I don’t understand how she scored higher than Leanne, especially with steps out of bounds. Do they really expect Josc’s floor ex to score well with international judges? Am I missing her artistry side?
