  • #GymnastAlliance
    • British Athletes, like our queen Catherine Lyons and co-queen Lisa Mason, are speaking out about the coaching abuses they've suffered and culture of fear in British gymnastics. We discuss what makes this moment different.
  • Athlete A Aftermath
    • The influence of this documentary and Dave Tilley's must-watch reflection and analysis
    • Moving the women's age limit to 18—how do we feel about it now?
    • OK. But. We really need to unpack this narrative that Maggie was snubbed for a spot on the 2016 team. Spencer made a spreadsheet. Because of course.
    • Feedback on what we make of Geza Pozsar, whether Sarah Jantzi bears the same responsibility as Rhonda Faehn, and how sportsball boyfriends reacted to the documentary
  • Copenhagen withdraws
    • Denmark will not host worlds in 2021. Jessica and Spencer are currently in different stages of grief.
  • Simone is the first gymnast on the cover of Vogue
    • And the twitters are NOT happy with the pictures
  • More abuse news
    • Terry Gray—formerly of Cincinnati, Browns, and SCEGA—has been arrested for 14 counts of "lewdness with a child under 14"
    • Thierry Pellerin—Canadian pommel horse specialist—has been arrested for sexual offenses against minors.
  • Plus
    • Gymnastics survives the Stanford sports purge, all our favorite under-the-radar internationals are going to LIU—except international students might not be able to stay in the US (petition), everyone is coming out, and Jessica's mouth goes to sleep while trying to say Ana Padurariu, which is our cue to stop.
