Good news. Trautwig eventually did the right thing.
But browsing his twitter feed for the first time makes me less impressed than ever with the non-gymnastics expert on the NBC commentary team. He’s frequently arrogant, negative and combative.
I finally watched some NBC delayed prime time coverage last night. They covered very few routines over a random time line.
Knowledgable gymnastics fans should follow instead the NBC web coverage with Jim Watson, Jonathan Horton and Courtney Kupets Carter. (NBC log-in required.) Or use a VPN to watch via the British coverage.

Simone Biles was adopted by her grandparents. Simone calls them her parents. Mom & Dad.
Perhaps it’s time to throw out that old black & white TV.
