I’m excited to see MAG at the US Classic. I’m not excited for the broadcast strategy on the other hand:

I’d have to get a cable/satellite subscription to see live broadcasts for senior events instead of using FlipNow. That’s disappointing but not surprising.

At the Huntsman Center usually now it’s at the Maverick Center!? That’s great!

I really thought FlipNow was going to have all those meets.

NBC will have bought the broadcast rights for x number of years. How successful FlipNow is will determine what happens at the end of those years. But basically, they’ve just taken flo sports “in house” and will show the same meets that would previously have been on Flo.

Where it might become interesting is will they, for example broadcast worlds prelims live

Present on the senior women’s side include: DiCello, Jones, Jong, McClain, Roberson, Rosen, and Wong. Notably missing are Carey, Chiles, and Frazier (all already qualified to Nationals, iirc).

Pan Am team not attending makes sense since they just competed.
I wonder why DiCello is going since she is qualified to nationals. Perhaps she wants another competition under her belt after a mediocre Pan Ams and still coming back from injury.

I am excited to see the MAG compete hopefully there will be something not behind a pay wall.
With Russia out of Worlds, this opens the door for a team medal for the US men. China and Japan are strong but I think the US team could put out a pretty dangerous team.
They were so close to a team gold in 2001 and 2003. Can you imagine if they won 2022 Worlds?
Top 3 is certainly doable and if they can qualify to Paris this year, they can set up for 2023 and just go all out with the most difficulty that they can put together and try out routines that might benefit them in Paris. The one area US has lacked in difficulty compared to the top group. A no stakes 2023 can mean that they can go for broke with no worries about Olympic qualifications.

I’m glad to see the majority of the Pan Am team not attending. I’m sure they can use the rest, and it’s nice to see that they don’t seem pressured to show up just because. It’ll be interesting to see what event(s) DiCello does. Even on the junior side it looks like just Sumanasekera and Snyder.

Just looked through the juniors list. Massive respect to the parents still calling their kids Michelle, Nicole and Carly in 2008.

The posted a new roster with scratches, notably Ella Kate Parker, Gabby Van Freyan and Tiana S. Anyone know anything? Also i heard Mary Lee Tracy has retired, so i wonder who is taking over the CGA elites?

1 Like

I imagine (hope) Sumanasekera is just scratching because she doesn’t need to prove anything and would more benefit from resting/prepping for Nationals after that showing at PanAms.

I will be very unhappy if she’s gotten injured in the last couple of weeks.

Same! I was hoping to see Tiana this weekend to see what she is all about. Hopefully at Champs.

Konnor McClain and Kayla DiCello have withdrawn.

Is there any word if the broadcasts and/or routines from the CNBC sessions will be archived on FlipNow or YouTube?

Not surprising, hopefully not injury related though.

Ella Kate is now at WOGA, I believe.

The move to CGA never made sense to me. She was at NE Texas Elite, and then goes to CGA? A gym that hadn’t put anyone on a world team in over a decade?

Girl has oodles of talent, but her basics need to be fixed. NETE let her chuck things, and MLT continued that–hello, DTY! I’m not a WOGA fan by any means, but its got to be better than the path she was on with CGA.
