Eddie Penev interview

Eddie Penev is an American Team member who was born in Bulgaria. He could compete for either nation. GymCastic caught up with him after his 2 Gold medals (FX and Vault) at the last World Cup.

• Eddie suggests that FIG better standardize Floors and Spring Boards. There are too many differences between the “approved” equipment manufacturers

• of the Floor’s Eddie has competed on, he like the Japanese (Senoh) Floor best.

Eddie’s Floor is great. (VIDEO)

But he’s working upgrades. He’d like to replace double double layout with this triple double.

An easier way to make the USA A-team would be a consistent 14.500 Pommel routine.

I really enjoyed his interview! And he did say he would like to improve his PH to contribute more to the US team. I would really like to see him at Worlds this year!

I wish he would go back to Bulgaria! He is such an amazing gymnast and deserves to be on World/Olympic teams, however that will be extremely hard in America. Plus Bulgaria needs him.
