Max scored a personal best all-around score of 91.600 which shows an incredible improvement after a tough year struggling with illness.

abolish Olympic Team competition?

Gymnastics Teams Suck

That’s the provocative post put forward by Aussie gymnast Luke Wiwatowski.


We should keep in mind team event rules change all the time, even within the same competition (hello team final vs qualification). How are we to take the team competition seriously when the teams that make the team final do so under different rules compared to the ones they follow competing in the final. Team numbers have been diminishing from 7 members to 6 to 5 and now 4 in the next cycle. Some events, such as the European Games, have experimented with 3 member teams. The logical conclusion is not hard to see in the distance. 1 member teams!

Luke admits he’s playing Devil’s Advocate there. But his main point is quite accurate. A group of individuals each doing their own thing is not nearly the same kind of “team” as is a soccer team.

Personally I’d miss the Olympic Team competition if it is eventually ended. :-(
