    Oh Sam!

    Apparently, Sam fell 4 times in qualifying and just barely will squeak into the AA final due to a fall from Akash. He did hit HB so should make that final. I so wish he could put together a strong meet internationally just once!

    https://usagym.org/pages/education/safesport/policy.html I particularly found interesting that they now state parents should have access to all training sessions. While our gym has open viewing, I know many, many do not.

    Level 6/7 split leap question

    My daughter is just a level 4 so it doesn’t pertain to her, but I’m curious about the 180 degree leap requirement in level 6/7. I see a lot of routines at those levels that have leaps that clearly do not meet 180. I know they receive deductions on the leap, but let’s say it’s 140-160 degrees...
