congratulations are in order for kyla ross, who successfully defended her title today! (wieber did not compete). ohashi came in second after missing her lo full on beam again, mckayla maroney came third, and my favvv gabby douglas was fourth! the junior national team is ross, ohashi, maroney, douglas, madison kocian, sarah finnegan, sabrina vega, mckenzie wofford, ericha fassbender, ariana guerra, kennedy baker, jordyn wieber, lexie priessman, keely mcneer, elizabeth price, and brenna dowell. full results here.
last night jon horton also won his second consecutive national title, but the competition was a pretty good showdown between him and danell leyva, who came second. the men’s world team is horton, leyva, brandon wynn, chris brooks, chris cameron, and steven legendre, with alternate paul ruggeri. you can watch the universal sports coverage of the finals here.
bross is leading larson and raisman in senior wag, and finals are LIVE on nbc & universal sports in about an hour & a half. you can watch universal sports coverage of prelims here. it’ll continue to be very gymnastics spammy & catch-up-y here at least through the weekend, and then i’ll try to even the posting ratio back out.
