TaiShan equipment at Worlds

Most of the athletes have never used TaiShan apparatus before. It’s a test of who can adjust quickly.

For the most part the apparatus and the TaiShan crew looks to be good. A pommel broke today when European Champ Rhys McClenaghan was training. That’s odd.

Some of the guys told me the vault is hard. Landing mats hard.

Most of the discussion has been about Floor.  Kenzo seemed to have trouble during podium training. Max and Dom seemed to be OK with it. Both Russians made triple back look easy.

Sam Oldham notes that the  Senoh floor in Japan is soft. It has a bigger margin for error on take-off. Timing has to be more precise on the TaiShan. 

I’m more worried for WAG — starting tomorrow — than MAG.
