Artistic Gymnastics 2020 Discussion Thread

Recommended Posts

:JPN Asuka Teramoto is out of the Home Games...torn Achilles Tendon is the diagnosis (she has already had an operation and she's expected to sit out at least 8/10 months)...:cry:

I don't follow Gymnastics that closely, but I read that's an important loss for the Japanese team...

This's kind of Artistic Gymnastics I want to see always where athletes really artistically interact with music not just doing typical routines and that's it at least on floor

My problem with NCAA Gymnastics is that they put too much emphasis on the dancing. Plus, they still use that outdated scoring system. I like athletes interacting with the music too, but this isn’t Dancesport.

A little dancing will not be that bad it's called Artistic Gymnastics at least in floor I want to see different routines I want to see some art not just robots doing exactly the same things

With due respect, you're describing the routines of the US girls. You have to learn to appreciate other teams too. Dutch and Canadian girls have awesome choreography, especially Brooklyn Moors.

EDIT: If you want to watch routines that are closer to NCAA in elite gymnastics, Belgium is your team to watch (especially Nina Derwael). They have very simple acrobatic skills, okay-ish choreography and clean execution. But they perform too few difficult skills for me to care. I prefer gymnasts with a solid dancing background but way harder tumbling skills (Saraiva and Andrade from Brazil, most of the Russian girls, some of the Chinese girls).

This is sort of totally random, but here you have FIG listing Totallympics as a source. :yikes::d

Based off discussions I’ve had with various federations, they all seem to be aware of a few forums, chat groups, Facebook groups like ours.
