Kensley and the GymCastic crew discussed the option to send a team of mostly specialists to 2021 World Artistic Gymnastics Championships in Japan October 18–24, 2021.
There is NO team competition at that one.
For Worlds it’s a maximum of 6 men, 4 women — because women are 2/3rds as worthy, I assume 😕 — with a maximum of 3 competing each apparatus.
American AAers should stay home, focusing on increasing their D-scores for 2022.
Brody Malone AA (if he wants to go)
FX – Gage Dyer, Eddie Penev
POM – Stephen Nedoroscik
Rings – Alex Diab
Vault – Donnell Whittenburg, Eddie Penev
Of course any other apparatus specialist should be welcomed to trial. Send those athletes with the best chances of qualifying for any Final.
It’s Kohei’s home town hosting. If not competing, I’m sure he’ll be the spokesman for that competition.
