So... Simone... Wow! I guess she really feels under the weather today.
Yes, this. Some of the comments complaining about sloppy gymnastics winning were so off the mark. Even on a bad day, with falls, I wouldn’t characterize her gymnastics as sloppy. Add to that just how much better even still she usually is, and.. yeah.. she deserves her victories. People got what they wanted- a closer game, so to speak- and they’re still not happy.I read the Balancebeamsituation blog suggest that maybe we should go back to 10.0 since Simone had an off day and won by such a large margin. I think that misses the point about how she may be the GOAT -- she is just that much better. The 2nd - 6th scoring shows how close the rest of the world sits. We are in the Age of Biles -- it is unlikely there will always be such lopsided victories.
When people were questioning the line up, I love that he said it was Morgan’s choice. It seems like he listens to the girls and that their voices matter. I also loved the public support for Riley after a rough qualification.I have so enjoyed reading Tom Forster's updates on facebook. There's a transparency there we haven't seen before. I'm eager to read his assessment of today's competition.
From what her coach posted, she had a minor wrist injury, is recovering well and also working on the upgrades, so no competitions for her this year. I can't wait to see her can Emma Malabuyo come back next year.I am curious what has happened to mails o’keefe? Is she injured?
