The best news I’ve heard out of FIG in some time.

The FIG is unhappy with trends in artistic gymnastics, where the accumulative scoring system encourages athletes to cram their routines with risky moves.
“Artistic gymnastics should be about art, about beauty, and in the case of the women it also has to do with music, with expression,” FIG secretary general Andre Gueisbuhler told Reuters in an interview.
He blames the current Codes.
I also like what Andre has to say regarding age cheats. And fair Olympic judging.
That’s a MUST read. It restores my faith in the possible future of our sport.
The sun is shining a little brighter today.
