The most I’ve seen Kenzo do is 9/2 twist to 1/2 twist.

There aren’t many male gymnasts with much style on Floor Exercise these days. Add this name to your short list of favourites.

Kyle Shewfelt was a guest coach at E’s gym (Go For It, Vegas) some years ago, already much impressed with this kid’s talent. His female coach, Nalani Cook, has done a good job with Emyre.

On GymCastic audiocast #138: Prince Emyre Cole they awarded E the “Winter Cup Prize for Elegance”.

Steve is great. But cannot stick landings. … Aside from the dismount. He NAILED that dismount.

USAG already has every routine on YouTube. Fantastic.

@GymCastic quick hits

Steven Legendre – Floor

The Legend is back. He missed Pommels, but would be unlikely to compete that apparatus for USA anyway.

Steve was one of the highlights of the Winter Cup prelim competition.

Mikulak – 2 air flares

There are quite a few guys competing one air flare now. We can anticipate more advanced versions over the coming years. Copying the break dancers.

If you thought one air flare was cool… how do you feel about 2?! 💣💥
