    I would definitely hate wolf turns less if they often looked like they had a solid arm position like this:


    I hope she stays healthy, really unfortunate for the 2004 Seniors who probably won’t get to compete internationally at all this year.

    I mean that's definitely better than most, but they're still the worst.

    I know MAG isn’t a big thing on these threads, but he is a household name in the artistic gymnastics world, so I reckon it deserves a mention.

    Sam Mikulak has decided that Tokyo 2020ne will be his swan song:


    I wish him the best of luck on the final year of his career. I know for many elite athletes, their sport is all that they’ve known their whole life. If there’s anything positive to come out from this pandemic and the forced quarantine that came with it, it’s that it has allowed these athletes to reflect on the possibility of a life beyond their sporting career.

    Yes, I watched it and loved it! Wish they would do something similar for men’s gymnastics too.

    Has anyone else been following Chellsie Memmel's comeback? Her videos are so great, especially seeing her in the gym with her kids.

    I love it- I also love her outlook (pushing yourself at a healthy pace, learning to listen to/respect your body and what it can handle, handling injury). I can't believe how well she's come back, and then it all breaks my heart thinking about what the Karolyis did to that whole 2004-2016 set.

    And yes, I did just watch Athlete A.
