The Simone Biles invitational.
Sat through all of podium training on a phone while in bed. Living the life except now my eyes are paying for it.
Simone is not human. She sailed through vault (with vaults up in the rafters) hit bars (near perfect for her routine and a messy second routine. Had to repeat her dismount per order of coach Marta which was close to the bar all 3 times) Started with a shaky beam but then went up and hit 3 routines missing only her leap, leap back pike ( she never hit the connection) then she just tumbled her way through Floor. The girl is not human
As for Mykayla she had a rough training. Rough is an under statement. She fell on her Chang. Fell on bars. Fell off beam ( though her only really issue with the fall on the full which she hit 2 other times) and she fell on her floor mount and didn’t finish the routine (flat to her face) she later did another routine without the tumbling. She basically looked tired and didn’t have enough power for anything today.
The only other thing we really saw was Jessica Lopez attempting to do a front ariel to a sheep jump which was the ugliest attempt at a sheep jump I have ever seen.
The stadium the Cowboys play in is way too big for a gymnastics meet. Everything is so far back from the fans it’s unfair to even charge them for tickets because they are barely in the same stadium.
