I like that gold medal routine better than his golds on H Bar and Floor. :-)

Get a (gymnastics) Grip

GYMNAST CROSSING posted the best summary I’ve seen of the pros and cons of leather grips.

Al Fong:

There’s no doubt leather grips with dowels are a big advantage to those who can afford them.

no grips Dabritz

no grips Dabritz

There are fewer and fewer high level Bars gymnasts like Georgia Dabritz.

In another post, GYMNAST CROSSING lays out possible methods of getting chalk to stick to gymnastics rails, including my own:

I like supersaturated sugar water. I boil sugar water in a microwave for perhaps a minute. … It’s much less slimy than honey.

Danell Leyva – Parallel Bars

The former P Bar World Champ swings BIG at Winter Cup.

Click PLAY or watch it on YouTube.

Uncle Tim:

Danell Leyva had a rough weekend in Las Vegas, and as a result, he was not named to the U.S. National Team. I don’t know anything about the politics behind that decision, but I’m guessing that Danell Leyva was shocked. It’s the first time that he hasn’t been on the National Team in how many years? Hopefully, the snubbing was the motivational wake-up call that Danell needs. Because quite frankly, he has not been performing like an Olympic bronze medalist.
