This and That
Team USA leaves for the Netherlands today. Alicia Sacramone is quite excited about leaving the ranch behind.
Queen Nastia tweeted that she is sending videos and emails of her training to her dad and is being coached via the web. God Bless technology. (Way to wait until he left town. Coincidence much?)
Jonathan Cassar's short program at the Finlandia Trophy.
Rockne Brubaker told Universal Sports about his progress with partner Mary Beth Marley.
Belgosto discussed their long distant partnership with Icenetwork.
The Gymnastics Examiner interviewed Anna Li.
Lauren Mitchell tied Lori Strong's record of four gold medals at the Commonwealth Games. It is impressive and demonstrates that Mitchell is ready for Worlds, but it is important to note contextually that this year's field is no where near as deep as CWG fields past.
Richard Dornbush won gold at JGP Dresden by winning both the short and long programs. Christina Gao won silver behind Elizaveta Tuktamysheva. Gao is most pleased with not receiving an edge call on her lutz.
The Hubbells had the highest TES score in the short dance at the Finlandia Trophy but they only had the fifth highest program components scores. Pechalat and Bouzart are en route to rack up another Senior B International title.
