    Also of note.. Laurie Hernandez announced a return and is now training at Gym-Max. I don't know how her return will go, but so glad she isn't with Maggie.

    Also, also... sorry talking to myself lol but speaking of Gym-Max athletes, I saw on insta that Laney Madsen is in Bulgaria and will be competing at Worlds for them. Should be interesting to see.

    I can't believe they are letting Ragan do this to herself. Give the kid a break already.

    Agreed. I was shocked they even invited her to selection camp. And then to name her to the team?! She needs to heal. Even as the traveling alternate, she'd be doing too much, though I do hope she ends up the alternate because I can't watch her get hurt again. Now is the time she should be resting and healing if she really wants to give 2020 a go. Poor coaching decision, IMO.

    She really is in a league of her own! I saw a "slow motion" video of this vault and it looks like most gymnasts regular speed vaults. The power she gets is insane!

    Surprised about Ragan too but I think she'll end up being the alternate. She's passable in all 4 events (assuming she hits them) so she could really step in anywhere she's needed depending on who goes down. I'm so excited to see how Miss Beam Queen Kara will do!

    I’m seeing on Twitter Laney won’t compete at Worlds. Anyone know why?

    Laney Madsen is no longer on the list of gymnasts registered for worlds as of yesterday...I know she had an issue with her luggage not arriving/being stolen which sucks. Was thinking she could still find makeshift gear but that would be a shame if she's out because of it. (Thegymterdotnet on twitter)

    What a freakin qualification round for Sam. He finishes in 3rd and makes 4 event finals. CAN HE FINALLY GET HIS MEDAL!???

    Please don’t build us up like this again, Sam. My heart won’t take it.

    She was in the hospital until 1 am... thanks to anti-doping rules she couldn't take anything for the kidney stone pain even if she wanted to... still breaks a 60 in AA and casually gets a new vault named after her
    :jawdrop:

    Morgan's confidence is sky-rocketing. She has grown so much.

    I could live without Riley. Honestly forgot she was competing, sorry girl.

    Holy beautiful beam, Kara. So pretty and flawless.

    I love Grace. Probably because I loved Maggie Nichols so much and there is a lot of similarities between the two (obviously due to TCT/coaching)
