    Anon British Gymnastics bans coaches from weighing athletes

    Any thoughts on this story from the UK? Seems sensible to me but I've seen some online commentators saying that getting to the top isn't meant to be easy or fun... https://amp.cnn.com/cnn/2023/11/29/sport/gymnastics-abuse-changes-intl-spt/index.html

    WAG UK catch up after the British, Classic Challenge, Challenge Qualifier and New Levels

    Catch up on everyone's thoughts after the recent national competitions and regional levels. What do we all think? Did BG pitch the levels right? What do we think will change next year? Did clubs in your area pitch their gymnasts correctly? What would you like to see change next year?

    WAG Difference between British and USAG levels?

    I have an 8 year old, level 6 teammate moving to England this summer due to the military. She is planning on continuing her gymnastics after the move. What is the difference between the levels? I'm just curious.

    Help me, British friends!

    Rather than critique the American women's leos, I would like to discuss the men's singlets. What the HECK is up with the rooster on the British guys' warmup gear? Who thought this was a good idea? What does it mean...
