Cannot wait for this. I’m so starved for gymnastics right now.
It’s been too long!
NBC will presumably need a login, right? Does ‘archived for viewing’ mean that USAG might also have a livestream?
Do we know who is competing? Or at least, any rumors of who will be there?
Everyone should be there. National team will be selected, so unless there is a really compelling readiness reason, anyone and everyone aiming for Tokyo should be there. If there are spring international assignments (unlikely, but…) they will go to national team members.
Thus is a HUGELY important meet. As a benchmark, it’s critical. Some people haven’t been before judges since nationals 2019 (other than camps). Laurie Hernandez hasn’t been on the competition floor in 4.5 years. And we’ve seen nothing in over a year from everyone else, except for 2020 Scam.
Obviously no one should peak for this, but it is a critical benchmark for 2021.
It will definitely be uploaded after the event is over, whether they will also have a livestream or not is currently listed as TBA. So it’s possible.
They’ve done international livestreams during NBC productions in the past. I don’t know if Covid or the new partnership with FloGymn or whatever new rules NBC could possibly have may complicate things.
I hope everyone plans to compete but who knows… Who do you most want to see? For me, Chellsie. In juniors I like several a lot but eMjae for sure. For the men I want to see Donnell come back strong. I have a weakness for comebacks and underdogs.
This is incredibly exciting. But am I reading this right – the only way we can watch the junior women is on FloGymnastics?
That sure looks like the case. Well, it will be a cold day in hell before I pay Gymnastike/Flo to watch their feed.
Even in a cold day in hell they will not get my money . . . . .
There’s always something on YouTube. Just wait a day.
Two weeks out and still no roster. Very irritating.
I am sure they are waiting until last minute because of Covid, etc.
For sure. Everything and everyone is in chaos these days. (Good to see you Irichluck21-- hope you have been well)
Ok they bleeped out the expletive I put in the middle of Amen! But you get my drift.
It is good to see you as well! Missed many of you all. I have been stressed with work during the pandemic but most people are LOL. This too shall pass. Hope all is well and you are healthy and safe.
It is good to see everyone! There are some usernames I don’t recognise though, is anyone new or are we all old wwgym transplants?
I hope I’m done being an “Escapee”.
I must changed my name. Hello all, formerly FlyingRobin checking in.
