U. S. World Team Trials: Day Two Final

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 Wednesday, September 20th after the meet ends and we will wait a bit to see if the team is announced (6:45 Pacific-ish). Here’s how to ask questions live.

We discussed:

  • The teams!!!
    • Worlds: Simone Biles, Skye Blakely, Shilese Jones, Joscelyn Roberson, and Leanne Wong. Traveling Replacement Athlete: Kayla DiCello
    • Pan Ams: Jordan Chiles, Kayla DiCello, Kaliya Lincoln, Zoe Miller, Tiana Sumanasekera. Individual Qualifier: Katelyn Jong. Non-Traveling Alternates: Alicia Zhou, Eveylynn Lowe, Nola Matthews.
  • The real reason Jade Carey isn’t on the Pan Ams roster (she’s heading to the Swi$$ Cup)
  • The difference between artistry and execution.
  • Scott Bregman joined the show to provide his insights, including his extra time with Simone.
  • We create our lineups.
  • We discuss who might get a bobble on our World Controversy tree next year.
  • Jessica shares some of the conversations she had with the coaches and athletes.
  • And of course, everything you couldn’t see on the FlipNow live stream that happened in the gym
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 very torn. Used to be elite events were all the gymnast had. Now. College. NIL. $$$. More opportunities. But still. The Olympics are the thing and worlds is the track to that.

I really do understand being upset, I just hope Kayla DiCello never hears this reaction. While understandably, being upset, I am happy for her and she should also be celebrated.

Thanks for your commentary and coverage. One question – who will travel to Worlds as Leanne Wong’s coach? Thanks.
