Superstars of Gymnastics a success

If you had a choice between the Superstars meet in Birmingham or the concurrent World Cup meet in London — both hosted the same day — which would you choose?

No question for me. I’d be at the World Cup.

But they had a big crowd at Superstars. Ticket paying fans seemed to enjoy the comedy. For once the gymnasts knew that entertainment was the goal, not the very best Gymnastics.

Hopefully Superstars will continue to be a success into the future.

BBC Sport – Libby Dawes:

Do elite gymnastics competitions need to be more fun?

World Championships in Glasgow was a near perfect meet for me. NCAA Gymnastics meets — both MAG & WAG — are plenty entertaining enough too.

A meet should last no longer than 2 hours. And I’d love to do anything to improve safety.
