The Dismount: Week 6

While week five was all about perfect 10s (there were some of those this week too!), program records highlighted week six of the 2022 season. Catch up on everything that went down, from upsets to 10s to records, in the superlatives, results and recaps below.

Exhibition Routine of the Week

Sarah Shire Brown, Penn State, bars

During warm-ups before their meet at Michigan, the Nittany Lions’ head coach showed her team that she’s still got impressive skills.

Most Underrated Jump Sequence

Kaylin Knapsack, beam 

The Ursinus junior’s routine is chock-full of cool skills and combinations, but her beat jump to pike three-quarter is an absolute stunner! 

Coolest Under Pressure

Steve Schlanger

You thought this would be about a gymnast didn’t you? But when Ashley Miles Greig had technical difficulties to start the fourth rotation of Missouri at Auburn, he was forced to commentate the final six routines from each team on his own, holding his own in the process. However, while this is a rarity, it does beg the question: Should color commentators be more prepared for the sport they’re covering in the event their more knowledgeable play-by-play co-host dips out unexpectedly?

Shortest Memory 

Piper Smith, beam, 9.900

After a frustrating fall on bars, Smith rebounded on beam with a thoroughly calm and collected routine that tied her career high and set the pace for a program record 49.625.  

Most Emphatic No

Chellsie Memmel

Presented without commentary

Social Media Fail of the Week

Georgia’s Scheduled (?) Meet Tweets

A “pre-beam fun fact” was Tweeted on the Georgia account a good 30 minutes after the meet had completely wrapped up and about an hour after the Gymdogs started their beam rotation at Alabama on Friday, leading us to believe the team scheduled some of its mid-meet tweets and got the timezone wrong in the process. Doh!

BTN+ Fail of the Week

Ohio State at Minnesota, floor

Another week, another misspelling! We don’t know who Hooter is but good for her on her lineup debut for Minnesota. Look, we say this tongue in cheek, but gymnasts’ names really ought to be spelled correctly. Get it together, BTN+.
