It's not a personality competition but in gymnastics as in other sports who I I cheer for and hope succeeds depends both on skill ( Michael Phelps) and personality ( Reagan Smith) or ideally both ( Simone Biles, Jordan Speith, Missy Franklin). The major stars get the most attention and we get to know them better. Some athletes have turned me off with their personality so much that I cheer for anyone else against them. That's why I love sports because the convergence of skill, competition equal a compelling drama.
Totally agree, but I just do not see the PTB not sending Gabby with her scores because she does not smile. She scores well internationally even when she looks like her dog died.
