Addison Fatta / Yul Moldauer
Happy for Fatta and Yul here. Yul could make an argument here that they should have put him on the main team…
Did Zeiss do podium training? I can’t even remember judging her routines at all.
Livestream link for the competition:
The countdown has this starting around 7am EST Sunday morning.

Addison Fatta is having a great year this year. I wonder if she will defer Oklahoma next year and try for Paris.
No results yet. But a little info here: https://www.stv-fsg.ch/de/news/team-usa-gewinnt-swiss-cup-zuerich-schweizer-traeume-platzen-frueh.html
USA beat Italy 27.900-27.650 in final round. They were 3rd after round 1, second after round 2, and managed to steal the gold in the final round.
Looks like Fatta chose bars, vault, and floor to compete.
Yul did floor, parallel bars, and not sure what else.
Really surprised Maggio didn’t do vault.
Maggio UB 13.900
Fatta VT 13.000 (2 vault average)
It looks like they had to average two vaults here for a vault score. Does Maggio have a second vault?
A couple of thoughts on Eythora:
- Both her leaps in that series were completely jacked. Is she ok?
- Has she ever spoken about why she has ditched BHS? Is it a wrist issue or just a “I don’t want to go out of bounds” issue?
I just love Addison Fatta looking sideways on her switch leap. Nice little extra.
Neither. She has never had good back handsprings. They were usually way too high and apparently she wasn’t able to fix it.
Since Tokyo, she has been training with the men in Rotterdam (home to Bart Deurloo, among others). Together with the men’s coaches, she decided to ditch the back handsprings to get more power in her tumbling.
Regarding her leaps: they have always been a little bit of a struggle, but these were exceptionally bad and weird. Sometimes it looks like she doesn’t fully grasp the movement of those leaps (especially the full), but manages to get them around. And if she doesn’t focus well enough, they’ll be all over the place. But this is just me speculating, so I could be totally wrong!
Video of the entire competition:
This is something new I believe and that actually makes a lot of sense given that vault tends to be a bit higher in terms of score.
