- The US women selected their squads for the World Challenge Cups in Paris and Szombathely
- We discuss the virtues of sending athletes to challenge cups, who we would put up on each event, who didn’t compete at camp, and why on earth you would use all-around standings to select athletes for an apparatus competition
- Plus, the impending return of Melanie De Jesus Dos Santos and the Andrade/Saraiva showdown with the US making the Paris Challenge Cup the show of the year so far
- Giveaway! We’re doing a pre-worlds membership drive giveaway starring official Euros goodies. Listen for details.
- More GymCastic-endorsed changes to the NCAA gymnastics postseason schedule next season
- Chinese Nationals
- Hot takes on the latest gymnastics TV news, what the NCAA president had to say about gymnastics, Title IX, and college athlete compensation, and whether Simone left the door open for returning in 2024.
- It’s a mini-commission all about the history of New Zealand women’s gymnastics! We talk Courtney McGregor’s historic results (watch her Behind The Scenes Vlog from Worlds), the vault score appeal controversy of 2016 Olympics, the trailblazers of 1964, and that time they (gasp) beat Australia.
