At WOGA, apparently…

Wow.
If she is in WOGA of all places, this seems like a serious comeback.
If she can get into elite shape she would have a realistic chance at Worlds next year and maybe Paris. Her bars alone would make her an immediate contender. Her DTY would be more than adequate.

Very interesting

WOGA is such an interesting choice for her.

Didn’t she reportedly want to go to WOGA after she left Chow’s?

If Simone is interested in coming back as a specialist for VT and FX, Gabby could be a nice fill for UB and BB. With 5 person teams back, it takes some pressure off needing to be fully AA ready.

I’m prepared to stop everything and just frantically click refresh to get more updates.

I just really want to know what the motivation or rationale is.
Super curious!

Is there a shorthand for a piked tkatchev?

It was when she left Excalibur. WOGA wouldn’t take her and she ended up at Chow’s.

No - the piked Tkatchev first entered the COP following 1999 Worlds, but as an unnamed element and in the same box / element # as the straddled Tkatchev.

Who would it be named after?? Prod?

I live a few minutes from WOGA in Frisco. I think Valeri runs this one and Yevgeny runs the Dallas one maybe? I’m about to roll up and see if I can get a tour for my niece (gotta be inconspicuous lol). I just don’t believe this is really happening!

Please scout that situation and report back!

The notion of the 2024 team having the last three Olympic AA champions on it is totally insane. Plus Jade!

We can’t forget that had Gabby not been 2 per’d in Rio she would have easily medaled in the AA with 4 hit sets. Her TQ total would have beaten Mustafina and Raisman.

She was also 3-perd from the beam final and 4-perd from the floor final!

If she had been from ANY country other than USA, she would have been in AA, UB, BB and FX finals.
