cool list! i've only just begun to have interest in watching gymnastics. my daughter has only been in gym for 2 years and prior to that, i think mary lou retton was the only gymnast's name i could recognize! lol. i definitely know the "fab 5/ fierce 5" now though, but don't really know much beyond recognizing their faces. my daughter is beginning to keep up with them, though, so by default i guess i will be as well. :)

Marvin definitely got my notice at Secret Classic. I love me some Sam, enough said.

For the Jr women I want to watch Laurie Hernandez on everything, "Jazzy" Foberg on all but definitely bars, Ragan Smith on floor, Morgan Hurd on bars and floor

I also want to watch Emily Schild vault. I don't know if we've seen what she can really do. Marta seems to like her so she must be showing well at camps.

OMG, Stacey Ervin posted the highest score on floor yesterday. I am so happy! I hope Sam's ready to rock and roll tomorrow, but I am loving the prospect of the fireworks to come on hi bar.

Come on, Kiwan!

Can't wait for senior women tonight -- it's going to be such a battle for the podium!

I have to say, I was watching the Men's (both) and cheering them on, and then I realized - I sound like a footballer. I'm one of THEM!

Kiwan just looks amazing.
Sam, of course.
Jonathan Horton, I mean, come on. He's ooooooold at 29, but has experience and it shows.

Simone, definitely.

I'm learning more about women's gymnastics, since we've only concentrated on the men's side over here. My sons love watching women compete floor and uneven bars, especially uneven bars which they think looks fun.

Tough day for some of the sr guys, so far. Jonathan and Danell especially.

I watched on cable TV, and they didn't show Yoder, but mentioned what the cheering was about at one point. I'll have to go back and look at videos.

How did it work in the rotation of Men? Were the Olympic hopefuls grouped together?
Seeing Jonathan Horton look at his son in the audience, with that smile. Heartwarming.
