conversation starts here!
Has anyone identified promising junior men?
Xander Hong is competing here.
Imagine if both brothers win together again, US Classic was one thing, doing it again at Nationals.
Big time media opportunity.
Asher very well could win this. I think it’s between him and Fred Richard. They are both great. Did you see Ono’s spreadsheet?
WOW! and just from a round off too! He is just 16. Going to be a big talent for sure.
I always hated doing back handsprings so I did most of my passes from a round off(not that I was doing anything close to a triple back!)… they hurt my wrists
It’s about to start. I’m going to watch, partly to hear Tim!
Tim looks nicer than usual in his shirt and jacket.
Thank god they brought back the regular in-arena name/score announcer. I didn’t like the voice of the guy they used for Classics.
I did a double take when they announced Brandon Nguyen of Stanford. I was like, didn’t Brandon Wynn retire years ago?
Stuck vault for Shane!
Heck yeah Yul!!
Tim is giving good commentary.
This is the most bizarre competence. His whip-2.5 twists to the right, but his full out twists to the left! I’ve never seen anyone twist backwards in both directions at this level of difficulty!
