promoting NCAA Gymnastics

I love College gymnastics. Hell, I wear an NCAA Gymnastics baseball cap and promote the sport wherever I go.

Good news – Lloimincia Hall went viral over the past 2 weeks.

Lloimincia Hall

All sorts of people suddenly became aware of women’s gymnastics NOT in the Olympics.

Dvora Meyers in The Archipelago:

At the end of the Good Morning America segment, the anchor foolishly asked, “Will Hall ever go for the gold at the Olympics?”

Perfect 10 – There’s a lot more to women’s gymnastics than the Olympics

That’s a great article. Dvora tries to explain Gymnastics to the great unwashed.

Sadly, like last season, she did not qualify to the NCAA Floor Final today. Lloimincia nailed the double layout perfectly, but stumbled slightly on another landing in prelims. That’s enough to take you out under current College judging.

I’d love to see the #1 ranked routine get a bye into the apparatus final. :-)

Her fans should cheer teammate Jessica Savona, instead.

Men’s Floor is stupider than ever now. Who needs to see so many variations of twist?

No double somersaults.

Merde. :-(

this IS tumbling

The critical drill for strong back tumbling. As Iarov told us in 1994, the rest is “trampoline”.

Sam Mikulak’s legacy grows

Caloy Yulo – Floor

Jr Pacific Alliance.

A great success story for the Phillipines, Caloy qualified to both Vault and Floor finals.

Plucked from the streets and playgrounds of a nearby low-income neighbourhood, Carlos Adriel “Caloy” Yulo has been training with GAP since he was four years old, thanks to the prodding of his grandfather Rodrigo Frisco. …

You can see what FIG Floor rules are doing to our up-and-coming gymnasts. No deduction for repetition of corner moves.

Recall Minci was ranked #1 on FX last season — then did not qualify to the NCAA Floor final.

I’m really hoping she gets to Finals this year.

I’m astonished that more gymnasts cannot air flare.

This super hero, for example.
