I was a guest on the best Gymnastics audiocast in the Universe. A good show, I thought.
Nina, Simone, Yulo, Max, and Colak Ibrahim, Turkey’s first ever Worlds medal.
Men’s FX, PH and Rings. Women’s Vault and Bars. Could anyone dethrone Simone and Nina? Did Jessica and Spencer emotionally survive …
LISTEN – EVENT FINALS DAY 1
Nick was recently interviewed on the SHIFT podcast. Good information for all competitive coaches.
Nile’s one of the most popular Gymnastic vloggers. Some of his videos have more than a million views.
NEW in July was adding an audiocast. His co-host is father Neil so the parent’s perspective is well represented.
Episode 5 is a good interview with Nick Ruddock. Listen online or subscribe via iTunes.
The Gymnasticsville podcast previews USA Championships.
If you don’t listen religiously, the BIG news is that GymCastic has gone from once a week to twice a week.
Episode 374 provides a history of the audiocast — how Jessica O’Beirne launched it with zero podcasting experience. Recall that Tim Daggett was the first guest, an excellent interview.
We learned that Spencer watches Gymnastics routines all day every day. So we don’t have to. He’ll find the highlights.
We learned that Uncle Tim is still involved with social media for @GymCastic.
If you blinked and missed USAG’s hiring and firing of Professor Edward Nyman as its full-time sports medicine and science director — a new position — Jessica has got you covered.
Another hire where vetting was bungled.
The podcast reviews two other recent issues:
- Terin Humphrey posting and defending a dumb, wrong meme on Facebook. Terin was was a member of the selection committee that chose women’s teams for the 2012 and 2016 Olympics.
- Mary Lou Retton‘s recent TV appearance. Recall that Mary Lou lobbied against Protecting Young Victims from Sexual Abuse and Safe Sport Authorization Act as a USAG Board Member. Happily it was signed into law February 14, 2018. Mary Lou seems still in denial that children were abused.
In addition was new CEO Li Li Leung’s wrong statement that gymnasts who saw the criminal doctor with their coach were safe. Leung did later apologize.

In this episode we look at one of the most important aspects of sport performance and participation…. Motivation.
We talk about strategies to help set up a culture in your gym to drive and sustain motivation through the training year. There are many different motivational strategies and each athlete is motivated differently. We discuss many different ways to enhance motivation and make the daily grind of training and competition fun. Creating a culture of excellence in your gym and develop a plan for keeping the energy and excitement toward your goals both individual and team helps to keep motivation high.
Whitney Snowden former Head Optional Coach at Cincinnati Gymnastics joins us to give her perspective on motivation and what has worked well for her in the past.
