The Bronze is a 2015 American sports comedy-drama …
Former gymnastics Bronze Medalist Hope Ann Greggory (Melissa Rauch) has been living off her celebrity status in her hometown of Amherst, Ohio, though she is reduced to going through the mail her mailman father delivers for spending money.
When her former coach Pavleck (Christine Abrahamsen) suddenly commits suicide, a letter arrives addressed to Hope stating that if she can guide Pavleck’s best student, a young gymnastics star named Maggie Townsend (Haley Lu Richardson) to the Olympics in Toronto, she will receive a $500,000 inheritance. …
On … Rotten Tomatoes, the film has a rating of 32%, based on 84 reviews, with an average rating of 4.8/10. The site’s consensus reads, “Enthusiastically unpleasant and mostly unfunny, The Bronze fails to stick the landing – or much else along the way.”
The usual refrain from insiders, coaches and hard core fans. The general public likes the NBC formula.
I didn’t watch the NBC coverage either night. Instead I followed commentary (especially FloGymnastics) and twitter. Waiting for the routines I wanted to see to appear legally or illegally online.
The answer to this problem would be for NBC to later post ALL routines online. Or have separate full competition coverage online. That was the role of the – now defunct – Universal Sports Network coverage. Seems it didn’t pay. Universal shut down November 2015. 😦
Power is still being produced by generators. 😦 Generators fail.
Still, the Artistic competition was a success. We only had one major injury over the 3 days – Achilles rupture tumbling for one of the Austrian gymnasts. 😦 Injury rate is normally higher at these biggest meets.
The purpose of the Test Event is to test all aspects. FIX the problems in time for the Olympics.
