I didn't see a thread for this, but shout out to CB's own Josc Roberson for a great beam routine for the lead after the first rotation! Pretty cool.
For juniors or seniors, and how could my mom get tix
And is there a way to be able to tell who will be in each session. And will Olympic hopefuls be competing like Simone, Sunni, Jordan, rebeca, etc.
So jealous. NBC is the WORST when it comes to gymnastics coverage. They still have not grasped that there are other athletes that we would like to see competing. I think they need to rename it the Simone Biles Classic, because that is pretty much all we saw. Yes, she's great, yes. she's making a comeback. But do we really need to watch her yawn, sit in a chair, bend over and get things out of her bag, doing some water, dance, walk around, pull her wedgie, talk to her teammates (who didn't get any screen time except sitting next to her, btw), then incessant replays of her events and even her events from a couple years ago. Meanwhile, we could actually be watching other gymnasts. I feel sorry for any gymnasts in her session who had family desperately wanting to catch a glimpse of their amazing gymnast who worked so hard to get to this competition, but didn't even get to see them one time NBC needs to take some lessons from YouTube Live, who did the Juniors--they showed one gymnast, and then as soon as she finished, they showed the next gymnast.Watching from Australia, where it is mid Sunday morning.
The international feed for this is great - all routines, no fluff, replays when they can be squeezed in, and no commentary. The only problem is no scores, but that is easily solved with a second screen.
That vault is just insane!
I know plenty of USA based gymnastics fans who used a VPN to watch the international feed. Would it upset you more to know that missed routines were replayed during breaks in performances?So jealous. NBC is the WORST when it comes to gymnastics coverage. They still have not grasped that there are other athletes that we would like to see competing.
