University of Calgary International Cup RESULTS

The annual international “friendly” in Canada was better than ever this year. Canada’s top guys vs very strong teams from China and USA in a 6-5-4 format.

The top 2 international stars for Canada were out of the team. Scott Morgan competed only Rings, protecting a “lower body” injury. Kevin Lytwin (knee ligament injury) did LIVE colour commentary.

When Team USA had ZERO falls starting on Pommels, I got the feeling they’d win this event. They did.

Nick Zaccardi:

Just like four years ago, Gabby Douglas posted the highest all-around score at the American Cup. There was just one significant difference on Saturday.

“My scores counted!” Douglas said.

Lauren was there. Here’s her LIVE commentary.

Ryohei is the first Japanese man to win this meet since Tsukahara the 1st did so in 1977.

Personally I don’t like meets with so few competitors. When things go badly, as they did today, fans start to ask … “What’s the point?”

Marta says Gabby performs best under pressure. Our Olympic Champion has never looked better on Beam.

Yes. That’s a “Thing Leap” not a “Ring Leap”. 🙂
