    I think you’ve underestimated how tough it was to qualify to the Olympics via the AA rankings this past Worlds. Also, this routine:



    Don’t even mention the form on her Pak, even her back swing is atrocious.

    the execution just isn't there. she could've just done power tumbling though that won't get her to the olympics.

    I've concluded I've been victim to the IG/social media filter of only posting greatness and never anything bad.

    Wow, that's extremely bad. I admit to never watching any of her routines, but I wasn't expecting that. I get that every athlete dreams of making it to the Olympics...but that level of gymnastics just doesn't belong.

    Ya I’m actually shocked that UCLA wants her with her form. She just does not look like other top gymnasts in elite or level 10

    This year it was extremely difficult to qualify to Tokyo. She would have to hit all her routines perfectly. Her vault and beam were ok but bars and floor were bad. And that was where she lost her spot for Tokyo.
    she deleted her ucla in her bio and unfollowed them on Instagram, so I’m wondering if she is still going to ucla. I’m afraid after her poor showing at worlds, UCLA decides she is not the right fit for them.

    She usually post videos when she was younger ( when she had lots of difficulty but lost it after going through puberty). Her dad also posts lots of stupid posts on facebook about her gymnastics. I also don’t understand why she is traveling with her mum to competitions and not her coaches. (Nothing wrong with her mum traveling with her but a gymnast needs her coach at competitions for corrections, spotting and mental preparation).

    Is she still going? I know she verbally committed but didnt hear of her signing anything on signing day (I believe she's 18). She also took it out of her social media bio and doesn't follow them anymore. I had been wondering if something had happened.

    ETA: Oops, saw that was mentioned above.

    It appears that Laney has commuted to training for the 2024 olympics. I personally think this is a mistake and that she should go have a good time doing college gymnastics. If anything I think that would best help her prepare but I’m sure they have reasons I have not thought of.

    Maggie Haney has been suspended pending outcome of her hearing. I hope the wording of "cannot coach minor athletes" is not a loophole because Riley is 18, but it probably is. This has been a longtime coming and I wish they did it sooner so that Riley and Olivia had chances to switch gyms earlier in the quad.

    Shocked they suspended her, solely because they've pushed this trial back at least 5 times. I hope she's banned from camps and meets while suspended, but I have little faith in USAG.

    To play devil's advocate, Riley and Olivia had plenty of notice that she may be suspended and could have switched gyms as a precaution. I wonder if they'll stay at MG Elite and just train under their other coach.

    They knew this was coming, so my guess is V will be their main coach and travel with them since MH is not allowed at training camps or meets. And since Riley is 18, MH will probably just coach her at 6 am or something since she is suspended from "being present in a gym with minors" so they'll train when the minors aren't present. Olivia cannot do that, though.

    Riley just posted on IG that she is training at Arizona Sunrays for the remainder of her elite journey.

    I guess she's probably staying with Jade? Isn't that where she trains and her father coaches?
