Quite a bit of depth. I’m looking forward to seeing who ends up competing for Canada at Worlds 2015.

We’re hoping Heaven Latimer continues her comeback. She’s not competed the AA for some time.

“Up, Up Stations” for Vault

Doug Davis:

… The drills demonstrated in the video below will be useful for tumblers at most any level, and are very worthwhile for vaulters that hope to achieve higher levels. Start early tumblers moving skills up onto safe, soft surfaces (pit pillows, bear mats), from the beginning to build confidence. Work up toward higher and higher stations involving more rebound and correct shaping. …

LSU 197.350 – 197.225 Alabama

Alabama was seeking its 50th straight home win, but the Tigers halted the streak behind solid routines throughout the meet. Before tonight the last time Alabama lost at home was Feb. 13, 2009 when LSU won …

Oklahoma 457.300 – another new record

Wow.

When the Sooners broke the record Feb 14th against Michigan, some felt it was just one of those nights when everything went right. That College judges got a little excited in the moment.

But to do it AGAIN Feb 27th. …

It’s nearly impossible for so many guys to hit so many routines so well, two meets in series.

And the first record night had a 6-up/5-count lineup format. This time it was 5-up/5-count!

The top-ranked Oklahoma men’s gymnastics team rewrote history, again, as it topped its own NCAA record on Saturday in a showdown between the nation’s top two teams, defeating No. 2 Illinois 457.300 to 434.200 …

The Sooners were stellar across all events on the night, recording 24 scores of 15 or higher …

gymnastics bar grips – finger wedgies

What are they?

This photo was posted by bogwoppit on the Chalk Bucket forum.
 

bogwoppit explains:

They make the finger holes of your grips smaller. I managed to get some from the UK, where they call them wedgies!

Order from GymnasticExpress.co.uk in Europe.

1039Ginnasta USA sells something similar. Cheap. $3 per package of 8.

Without them, kids simply stuff foam into the finger holes to fill the gap. Messy and inconsistent.

Leave a comment if you know of anyone else selling something like this.
