    Ragan looks a bit tired or something on bars…or maybe I’m just being critical. Her releases were caught very close to the bar. And man I wish Kim would ditch her stupid choreo on that girl…she’s getting older looking and needs something more mature than that stuff! No more Kim 2.0. Didn’t work for Bailey.

    Still with the freaking Addams family?? Why hasn’t she changed it? I agree she does look tired or somewhat off…we’ll see what happens!

      Mihai to Australia…. and Marta took the Patterson out last year for inconsistency

      • dianajc99 Says:

        No more Marta

      • Guest Says:

        Does it mean Aly is going to retire? I don’t know would she change her coach.

      • gymnerd Says:

        That’s kind of crappy of him.

      • Case Says:

        This is interesting. Should help Australia for sure. Aly was probably planning to retire anyway.

      • Gymbee Says:

        I can see why he would do that. He’s had 2 Olympics with Aly, and right now she’s taking a break and who knows whether she’ll come back. He’s at an age where a move like this would ideally happen sooner rather than later, and it must be an exciting new challenge for him.

    • dianajc99 Says:

      I hope their bars don’t suffer.

      • JAS4 Says:

        I could see Aly going to another gym or using a different coach from Brestyans but kind of mostly coaching herself and the coach would basically just be there to help her for spotting, motivation, and traveling to meets and all.

    I like Mihai. Thought he would be a better choice in the US over Liukin except we would need a bars

    This is interesting. He will have those girls in tip top shape because Aly and Alicia are really strong athletes. I just hope we get more Alicia form over Aly and more Aly mind set over Alicia. Together they would be the perfect gymnast as long as bars is eliminated lol

    Kapitonova’s is interesting too:

  6. Exgymgurl Says:

    Australia will need a bars coach, but now we all understand why he resigned as national team vault and floor coach…..

  7. Gymnast41 Says:

    Is it just me cause I’m kinda underwhelmed by Ragan and Riley based on PT, and with them being the top two seniors for the start of the new quad, I expected routines that would’ve been cleaner, more consistent, and with a better flow to them. Especially with ragan being so consistent and so much cleaner last year around the time in Rio, I just thought she’d be cleaner than what she is now even if she’d lost the consistency. Like especially with floor, that double Arabian and triple full need some help, and she still needs a spot on that double lay? Her beam also has absolutely no rhythm, and with that Patterson gone taking that many pauses between her connections are gonna hurt her D score..Riley I can excuse because she is new and I really knew nothing about her last year except that the second I saw her routines she reminded me of she who should not be named. Pretty sure that’s why valeri has been grooming her lol. But really she needs help on landings and consistency. Which is expected of course for a new senior, but with all the hype around her I just don’t see myself joining into the hype just yet. Who knows, tomorrow may bring some surprises 🙂

    Also, Jordan chiles really must be having some pretty horrible camps for her to have been replaced by Morgan Hurd. Kinda dissapointing cause I thought she’d be leading this quad, but she underperforms consistently. Really was hoping for Norah to get an assignment too, but knowing Chow he’s probably pacing her

    • gymtruthteller Says:

      Chiles is always inconsistent. Riley reminds me of who shall not be named only on beam. She’s very posey. I too am not impressed or should I say, over impressed with either.

    • Cupquaked Says:

      We have talked about chow pacing Norah for years. What is he even pacing her for anymore? She’s never peaked. I’m honestly doubtful she’s going to be a contender this quad. More likely she will drop to level 10 to avoid more injuries and then go on to NCAA.

      • Mim Says:

        I kinda agree about Norah. She’s one of the ones who didn’t get to live up to the hype.. I also see her going off to college without making much of a splash as a senior.

        Freaking stoked we’re getting Mihai. We’ve needed someone of that caliber for a LONG while.

    • Rocío Martínez López Says:

      Reagan seems to have grown a bit since the last time I saw her at Olympics Trials. Maybe that have knocked off her centre of gravity enough to give her some consistency problems. It is just a guess, but I have seen she doesn’t get as much height as she used to, too.
