Our interview with @EllaDouglas96!!! This is what we dreamed of when we started this podcast – space for LGBTQ+ athletes to share their stories. Ella is the first women’s NCAA gymnast (MSU) to come out publicly while still competing. https://t.co/aTZhNxzqWM
Frank Sahlein shared a document from Gymnastics Australia:
PREPARATION OF TRAINING/ COMPETITION ENVIRONMENTS
Once gymnastics clubs are provided with the endorsement to resume gymnastics activities in any capacity, the following specific factors for a safe resumption of training and participation should be considered …
How can training be staggered to minimise numbers and reduce contact?
Modifying training times so that there are less people present at one time
Scheduling adequate venue and equipment cleaning time between sessions.
Bathrooms/change rooms, kitchens, and entrance foyer
What is the protocol and frequency of cleaning shared facilities?
Treatment of surfaces
– A single deep clean will not provide any ongoing protection
– Use a product with residual viricidal activity to inactivate viruses
– Diluted bleach solution for non-porous surfaces (70% alcohol solution or diluted bleach solution) is effective on non-porous surfaces.
– Surfaces such vinyl mat coverings, high touch areas (doorknobs, benches, etc) require regular mechanical wiping.
– Some cleaning solutions may cause skin irritation, so take care to use gloves when cleaning, and wipe mats again with damp cloth (water) for surfaces that have greater contact area (e.g. children lying on mats).
Proud to announce we are official partners to the @ffgymnastique for all educational, development & live events. Great to have such a fantastic federation using technology and our material to enhance development, giving their members a chance advance #gymnasticspic.twitter.com/GSoRAXaC77
The system uses 3D laser scanner sensors to capture the gymnasts’ movements in real time, providing two million shots per second on areas such as arm or leg bend angles, angles of elevation and height of particular moves.
This is then compared to a database of existing recognised moves and routines to hopefully provide a more accurate picture of an athlete’s routine for the judges. …
The technology is now planned to be deployed at the forthcoming Artistic Gymnastics World Championships, held from October 4th-13th in Stuttgart, Germany, with further tests planned as Fujtisu aims to get it included at Tokyo 2020.
