Not sure how I feel about those TV test pattern leos, but they are unique!

As long as they stay as training leos only, they can wear all the geometric funhouses they want lol.

Looks like Stassi is at Buckeye now?

I love the navy leotard and think it would be pretty as a competition leotard if it had sleeves.

It’s the only one I like. The patchwork like one is terrible.

The navy one is fine but yikes the rest all scream discontinued clearance bin.

Okay who is Ella Murphy’s coach and why are they having her do the Komova. Literally no point compared to a Van Leeuwen.

She is at WOGA Frisco with Blakely. Coaches are Sonia and Emmanuel.

Sonia (Sun Haiou) used to be a National Team coach for China. She coached Bai Yawen. Emmanuel is possibly from MEAUX Gymnastique in France and seems to have taken Marchenko’s place coaching at Frisco since after Winter Cup '22.

I say possibly because he’s wearing a MEAUX jacket in one of Blakley’s videos. I have no idea who this guy is and only know his name is Emmanuel because it was listed shortly after Nationals on a news piece on the front page of WOGA’s website.

Yes, she and her coach both moved to Buckeye last month, I think.

Maybe she just has a feel for it compared to the Van Leeuwen? Or maybe they want to have different entries into the skill for routine-building purposes.

I’ve never heard of someone having an easier time with an Inbar Shaposh 1/2 than a Toe-on. The only routine composition I could see wanting to do it is if there are two Shaposh 1/2’s. Even then, she has done stalders, so I’d be looking into that option to help avoid a flexed foot deduction.

Maybe she’s already got 3 toe ons?

Grasping at straws here, too.

IMO, I think all shap halfs, except the komova, should go down to D. I could get on board with downgrading the toe to D but leaving the stalder/clear hip/inbar at E. but really the toe shap 1/2 is no harder than a Ray and that got pulled down to D. it would also be consistent with how they evaluate toe on flight skills on the HB.

Wow were they having an ugly leo competition? The geometric one is just awful and the dark red/white lace one looks like something the Russians were wearing 5-10 years ago

Yes, but you can only have so many toe-ons before you have to branch out

KATY, Texas (November 21, 2022) - Twenty-six elite junior and senior gymnasts assembled at Stars Gymnastics November 16-20 for Women’s National Team camp. Athletes in attendance worked with National Team staff on mastering basics in addition to training new skills.

Dr. Dave Tilley provided gymnasts and coaches information and training on injury prevention and introduced exercises athletes can incorporate into their regular routines.
