UPDATE: As I feared, that’s a Gym in war torn Yemen. See more photos. :-(

Krisztian Berki training

Olympic Champion Krisztian, age-30, missed European Championships. But he’s looking good in the lead up to Glasgow.

Click PLAY or watch a recent training session on YouTube.

I’m hoping he finishes top 3 at Worlds 2015 so he’ll have a chance to defend in Rio.

Yoder / Naddour – Pommels

It’s likely Team USA will select one Worlds 2015 team member for Pommels. My guess is Alex Naddour as he has experience and might contribute on some other apparatus, as well.

Click PLAY or watch Alex Naddour on YouTube. 15.100 (6.8, 8.300)

Not his cleanest routine.

Young Alec Yoder had the highest final Pommel score on day 1.

Click PLAY or watch Alec on YouTube. 15.600 (6.5, 9.100)

Sean Melton went 14.900. Donothan Bailey 15.050. Michael Reid 15.050.

Nancy Armour points out just what a difficult time the U.S. Men’s selection committee is facing.

@StickItMedia has been following the selection procedure. He feels this is simply wild speculation. We need to wait for day 2 scores before trying to fit together the team jigsaw puzzle. :-)
