David BELYAVSKIY did not “choke”

David has been excellent this season. Looked great at Europeans. Looked to be a man on a mission in Montreal.

His fall on Horizontal Bar in the AA final — his last apparatus — was a fluke, in my opinion.

It’s an easy, consistent release move for him. He must have been shocked not to regrasp. He couldn’t believe it happened.

Click PLAY or watch it on YouTube.

Listen to the GymCastic interview.

Some will say David choked at the last minute. That’s nonsense.

Hardy Fink spoke on the difficulty of regrasping a Bar that is oscillating wildly. No gymnast is 100% on regrasp even when they are in great position in the air.

I use David as an example for gymnasts who miss a routine for reasons having nothing to do with their mental preparation. It’s NOT all mental at the highest level.
