    WAG Baker, Memmel and Sacramone-Quinn new high performance coordinators

    I just read another article on Alicia and Chellsie in their new roles. When Chellsie was competing, she was known to do different/unusual skills. I hope that she can bring some variety and innovation to the US routines.

    NCAA Dana Duckworth out at Alabama (Possibly Fired)

    How do we get Kupets out? They didn't give Jay Clarke this much time when he took over after Youclan.

    WAG Baker, Memmel and Sacramone-Quinn new high performance coordinators

    I believe she chose to retire after 15 years as National Team Coordinator.

    WAG Baker, Memmel and Sacramone-Quinn new high performance coordinators

    I know a lot of you will disagree but that's what the system was supposed to do, produce medals. These are elite athletes who have chosen to compete and represent their country. They are free to do recreational gymnastics if they want to.

    WAG Baker, Memmel and Sacramone-Quinn new high performance coordinators

    I thought I read somewhere that Chelsie will run camps. I'm dubious about the selections based upon coaching credentials. Also, not sure why they're changing from a single coordinator, that system seem to produce a lot of medals.

    WAG High Performance Coordinator Elimination

    So, I came across this article on NBC Sports about how USA Gymnastics is eliminating the High-Performance Coordinator and dividing the position into three positions. I didn't see anything on USA Gymnastics website about this, seems like a big...

    WAG American Cup

    Seems like a crappy way to end a competition that has been help for 40 years.

    WAG American Cup

    It just occurred to me that there was no American Cup this year, was that a Covid thing?

    NCAA Quarter season done, kinda, what do you think?

    I'm just thinking they didn't give Jay Clark this much time when he took over after Youclan retired.

    OT Gymnastics Commentary

    Every once in a while I bring this up, but who else is tired of Tim and Nastia? I see what Johnny and Tara have done for figure skating commentary and I wish we had someone like that. Their commentary is not just entertaining but informative and technical. Tim and Nastia spend most of their...

    NCAA Quarter season done, kinda, what do you think?

    It kills me to say this but Georgia needs a new coach. There is a good chance they will finish the season without a win. I continue to be surprised that Georgia isn't attracting the top elites but then I look at their web site and it says they have no Recruiting Coordinator. With kupets long...

    WAG German gymnasts' outfits take on sexualisation in sport

    As far as I can tell leotards haven't changed, they were basically wearing the same style leotard in the 1960s. I could see the problem if they had been changed to make them sexier.

    WAG Valieva vs Raducan

    This issue with the figure skater Valieva reminded me a lot of Raducan's situation in 2000. Does anyone remember why was the Romanian team allowed to keep their team medal and why was Raducan allowed to continue to compete?

    WAG Tom Forster Stepping Down

    I won't miss him. I think your choice depends on what your goals are. I still think there's too much focus on keep everyone happy instead of let's win medals. Maybe they should have a selection camp and let the coaches compete for it? But seriously, I say they give Georgia's former coach Suzanne...

    WAG 2021 World Championships

    Well now we know whose competing. Based upon selection camp scores I don't see a lot of competitive start values. I'm telling you 1997 all over again.

    WAG FIG to Reinstate 1-Touch Warm Ups in Event Finals!

    Hey FIG another good idea would be to hold a round of competition where the gymnasts do a set of standard routines so you can assess each countries mastery of the basics. You could call it compulsories.

    WAG FIG to Reinstate 1-Touch Warm Ups in Event Finals!

    They state that as if this is some brand new idea.

    WAG NCAA

    I've been a Georgia fan since the 90s, just wish they would get it together. It seems like Courtney would have strong recruiting potential but they don't seem to attract the elites like UCLA or Florida do.

    WAG Skills you would like to see more of?

    I could not agree more, and college bars has become really uninteresting. Its basically a jump to the high bar, one release, transfer to low bar, squat on the bar back up to the high bar and dismount.
