More Gymnastics

Hello everyone!

As you may know I’ve been watching a lot of gymnastics this year. USA’s National Championships just happened and there were some amazing moments. Please enjoy a few of my favourites.

Trinity Thomas’ floor routine- she hits a Biles, a move that only one gymnast (Simone Biles) has performed before in competition. Trinity is such an incredible performer, and she just flies across the floor. She currently competes in NCAA for the University of Florida. You can see the “Gator Chomp” in her routine.

Simone Biles made history. Twice. Actually, more than twice. On beam, Simone competed a double twisting double back dismount, and on floor she hit a triple twisting double tuck. That is a lot of groundbreaking flipping and twisting. Simone is the first woman to successfully compete these skills. She also won her 6th national all-around title, which blows some other record as well. Nice, Simone.


I really enjoyed watching Mykayla Skinner prove that a come back is possible, and she got me. Mykayla has been competing in the NCAA for 3 years, and only returned to elite training over two months ago. I’m sure there are people out there who know more than me on this topic, but I dare say this is the quickest elite comeback ever. Also the Instagram post about her and Simone being the grandmas of gymnastics and hitting double double bars dismounts is awesome.

There are a bunch of other amazing athletes that showed up this weekend. Donnell Whittenburg did some great work, and was rewarded by making the National Team.

Yul Moldauer had some great stuff, too. Check out this vault.



Anyway, just some moments that I enjoyed! I hope you enjoy them, too. These athletes are incredible, and the feats they pull off are legendary.
