Pommel circles down a Beam

Try to watch the video on Facebook.

We’ve been waiting for decades to see this kind of skill. :-)

Orozco interview

John Orozco finished 2nd at P&G Championships.

It’s impossible not to cheer for John. He’s such a nice guy. So honest in an interview. John wears his heart on his sleeve.

John Orozco didn’t realize how close it was heading into his floor routine in the final rotation and was pleasantly surprised to find out he placed second. He talks about his relationship with Sam Mikulak …

Hryko – Pommels

The American Yoder missed in the final at the Youth Olympic Games. Opening the door for the Russian and this kid from Ukraine.

Jac Davies – 14.800 Pommels

I’d never heard of Welsh specialist Jac Davies. Before the Pommel Final at Commonwealth Games. He finished 4th behind … some other guys. :-)

Great swing.

Pommel Final results
Keatings 16.058 (7.2 DV) SCO
Whitlock 15.966 (7.4 DV) ENG
Smith 14.966 ENG

Jac Davies WAL 14.800

@CordeliaGymFan notes the podium was a repeat of the British Championships Masters Final.

Easily the best Apparatus Final at Commonwealth Games.

No falls. Davies from Wales swings near as well as anyone in the world.

Note how many Pommel finalists are not wearing wrist wrap.

Whitlock, Keatings, Wilson

Consistently hitting the most difficult Pommel routine in the world.

Yurchenko triple twist.

Whitlock truly is a great gymnast.

Max Whitlock

1. Max Whitlock 90.631
2. Keatings 88.298
3. Nile Wilson 87.965

Purvis made mistakes today.

Scores were too high, I thought. Don’t expect those same numbers at Worlds.

I’m thrilled for Keatings. He aggressively nailed his final routine, H Bar.

I was very impressed with Nile Wilson, too. As is Max. :-)

Max Whitlock is age-21. Nile Wilson only age-18. The future looks bright for GBR. I’d rank them ahead of RUS for 2016.

Donnell Whittenburg – Vault

Dragalescu. Easy.

I could see Donnell competing Rings, Pommel and Vault for USA at Worlds 2014. Maybe more.

Japan names Worlds 2014 Teams

2013 World Champions Kohei Kameyama (PH) and Kenzo Shirai (FX) are included. Japan has enough AA fire power to be able to carry both specialists.

best Pommel bucket

I’ve always bragged that the Pommel bucket at my home gym (Altadore) was the best I’d ever seen. It’s was built and is maintained by Ed Vincent.

But the one at Unigym in Gatineau, Quebec is even better.

Twist belt. Hung from a swivel. Padded inside and outside. Very durable.

Leave a comment if you’ve seen one better.

Unigym has “over 3,000 members”. It’s in a huge multi-sport complex.
