    • Gymnast41 Says:

      John freaking orozco….and not whittenburg or leyva (who KILLED it this weekend) wow.

      • Exgymgurl Says:

        Every USA medalist from last years worlds left off team USA, if I’m danell I go compete for Cuba in 2020

      • Guest Says:

        I think the men’s team got a wrong strategy. The selection committee would rather fight for the team medal than individual event medals… but team final top 3 is almost supposed to be Japan/China/Britain so it is not a smart decision that not choosing the event specialist who has greater chance to win medal. 😦

      • Gymbot Says:

        I understand how the system played out – they want to perform well as a team – but I agree with guest that the strategy doesn’t make sense. China and Japan are too far ahead, Great Britain is strong right now and Russia rallied this year into a fantastic team. Unlike the us, specialists in Russia complement each other for the team.

    Well Mr. Vise made the team. The fact that he is going to Olympics and Holly didn’t makes me so much more annoyed.

    She is a much better gymnast!

    The men suck and are boring. Am I right?

    • Exgymgurl Says:

      Except for hollie vise washing Naddours uniform in baby detergent so he could smell his daughter the whole competition. And the pics of Hollie vise and Hayley Horton and chellsie Memel. an lilac Naddour. Other than that Bozo cried like a baby. I mean like worse than Aly.

    Leyva and Donnell carried the team is Glasgow last year…this is the thanks they get

    • Exgymgurl Says:

      I know right? Blanked….Dannells dogs got in a huge fight before Hartford and he was competing with puncture wounds on his legs. They totally picked the wrong team.

  5. Exgymgurl Says:

    There’s a reason they haven’t announced the alternates. I think Lleyva told them to F off and Steve penny said we’ll give you until the AM to reconsider. THey are worried LLeyva will upstage their chosen boys mikulak and bozo again like he did in 2012. He’s also a loner and not one of the guys as much when competing

    • Ilanchik20 Says:

      They announced the alternates this morning: leyva, whettenburg, modi.

      Expecting Sam to do AA during QF and TF and not fall in love s funny, except it’s not.

      • Gymbot Says:

        Yeah Sam falls on high bar or floor pretty frequently. It’s a major risk. What did your autocorrect get “love” from?

      • Ilanchik20 Says:

        Stupid autocorrect. I meant to say it’s funny to expect Sam to compete AA two meets in a row without falling, except it’s not really funny.

      • gymbot Says:

        Sam is a risk on HB on FX, and maybe PB given his performances over this quad, including this year.

        I did the math for the different teams. While this team makes the most points, substituting Leyva or Whittenburg in, swapping out Brooks, Orozco, or Naddour in different combinations all creates TF scores within 9 tenths of each other.

        On this team, Sam would have to everything except HB in TF. Brooks is needed on VT, PB and HB – so he probably edged our Leyva, who had mistakes on HB 2x, PB 2x and has a weaker vault. But I think Levya, ultimately, is a better medal prospect on HB and PB.

        Can the US actually take a team medal? Maybe the US does have a shot, but falls would not be permitted. Russia recently went clean to win Euros and scored 271. Japan, GBR and China with 6 person teams and mistakes score around 270 as well – so maybe the US is in the hunt.

    Flavia Saravia’s EF beam routine in Anadian’s cup. She had a score of 15.125.

    • gymbot Says:

      well deserved, thanks for posting. I hope she isn’t as tentative as she was at worlds quals when she competes in Rio. My fingers are crossed for a great beam final.

  7. dianajc99 Says:

    Funny how Polina had a beautiful toe point and Alyona has none.

  8. dianajc99 Says:

    anybody know why Alexeevya is out?

    • gymbot Says:

      She is not allowed to compete at nationals as she is not a US citizen.

      I believe her parents are making the effort to become naturalized now, as she hopes to be able to compete for the US.

      • dianajc99 Says:

        wasent there a rule that green card athletes could compete for scores but not medals or spots on a national team?

      • Gymbot Says:

        I don’t know the rules well enough to say, but I think she already goes to the camps

  9. dianajc99 Says:

    And now we decompress for 5 hours and then It starts again!!

  10. the dude Says:

    Say what you want about Yin and his theatrics, but this is classy. Golf clap for him

    • Gymbot Says:

      Wasn’t sure what to expect when I checked the link, but that was nice. Everyone who meets Yin says nothing but good things about hm

  11. Beth Tennant Brigham Says:

    Very happy to see Maile O’Keefe do so well – she has been a tremendous talent from a young age. Riley McCusker gave an impressive performance, too. She’s very poised.

    • dianajc99 Says:

      her clubs website kind of throws shade at every other club in Nevada?

    • tennisgrl456 Says:

      I was super impressed by both Maile and Riley. Even though Riley is going to be turning senior next year, this is her FIRST year competing elite. For her to come out and hit with such confidence is really remarkable. Maggie kind of annoys me in interviews/in general but there is no question that she knows how to coach.

    • Mim Says:

      I’m just thrilled for Mailie. To compare with the senior scores, with Mailie’s 115.050, she would have gotten 7th AA and an automatic berth to trials if she was a senior. Hoping her coaches are pacing her well and don’t burn her out. Riley was really impressive too, she had such composure.

  12. the dude Says:


    Sorry, but this post from Glasgow just made me madder


    • gymtruthteller Says:

      I have not made a comment on the mens team because when I do it will be epic freak out at the way they chose this team and I honestly just don’t want to waste that much energy on a competition where the team was chosen based on nothing to do with actual medal winning ability. Hilton sponsorship has ruined this sport for me. I just don’t want to watch
