Winter Beach Blast 2021

A BIG competition is scheduled for Jan 14-17 in Galveston.

4 days MAG & WAG.

The highlight will be the Men’s Sr Elite competition: Yul Moldauer, Marvin Kimble, Allan Bower, Sam Zakutney, Colin Van Wichlen, Donnell Whittenburg and many more.

Meet director Jerit Pogue was interviewed on the gymnasticsville podcast about the meet and the future of American men’s gymnastics.

A professional series of competitions is needed in future — something like the German Bundesliga. Top gymnasts there can earn as much as $30,000 for the season plus expenses.

  • Code of Points, leotard rules, and named skills.
  • Why don’t they use the 10 anymore?
  • Why are leaps named for animals, how do I tell them apart, and no really WHYYYYYY?
  • How do I tell the difference between a split leap full and a switch leap full?
  • How do I tell the difference between those one-arm pirouettes—the Ono, Healy, and Ling?

They discuss a number of videos which you can watch LIVE ON TAPE.
