The Dismount: Week 4

Upsets, canceled meets, uncharacteristic mistakes and Pride—it was an exciting slate of meets for week four, and you can catch up on everything that happened below.

Routine of the Week

Maile O’Keefe (Utah)

It had to be the 10, right? With just the second perfect mark of the 2021 season—by this point last season there had already been 11—the Utah sophomore performed a stellar routine and continued her streak of 9.9-plus scores to start the year.

Stick of the Week

Addy De Jesus (Iowa State)

The junior transfer from Nebraska has been on fire this season. De Jesus continued that success by notching a perfect 10 on vault, something that eluded her in her time in Lincoln.

Carol Moment of the Week

Line Judges at West Virginia at Oklahoma

We really have no other commentary. At the very least keep the joy inside, judges? You’re supposed to at least appear unbiased…

Greatest Anthem

Backstreet Boys (Kentucky)

While we’re sure it was a prerecorded video that the athletic department uses for lots of sporting events, we had to fangirl a little over the fact that the iconic boy band sang the national anthem before Kentucky’s meet versus Alabama Friday night.

Best Hair

Sienna Schreiber (Missouri)

Missouri leaned into Florida’s Pride Meet with some seriously good hair ribbons. With Schreiber’s added double buns? You can’t lose.

Fail of the Week(s)

Every Bar Judge in the Country

OK bar judges, we need to chat. We could forgive some SV tricky moments and slow judging the first few weeks of season, but it’s getting out of hand. What is going on?

Best Accessory

Jenny Rowland (Florida)

Whether she already had these in her closet or specifically went out and bought them, we can’t get enough of Rowland’s strappy rainbow shoes from the Florida Pride meet.

Mask Warriors of the Week


Like New Hampshire, Cal is taking mask wearing to a whole new level by having the (majority of) gymnasts keep their masks on while competing. Bonus points, judges?
