Artistic Gymnastics 2021 Discussion Thread

Eythora Thorsdottir might deliberately sit out the Olympics. Her coach, Patrick Kiens, is no longer welcome in any role at the national team and the federation is putting pressure on their club to let him go as well - he was put aside due to "disrespectful behaviour towards other coaches, not being a team player and communicating badly".

 

Thorsdottir has been working with him since 2008 and for her it's clear: "I'm going to the Olympics with him or I'm not going to the Olympics at all."

 

So yeah, bit of emotional drama stuff.

Jennifer Gadirova will miss the European Championships. At this point, it's more and more likely that one of the Russians and Larissa Iordache will be the ones qualified to Tokyo. Last year I thought Iordache had no chance of qualifying at all, but now that Great Britain, Italy and France either lost or are not allowed to use their best gymnasts, the path is wide open for Iordache.
