It was another incredibly wild meet around the country this weekend, with a plethora of perfect 10s, broken records and exciting meets. NQS is right around the corner, and every score matters. Catch up on everything you may have missed—or relive the highlights—with superlatives, results and recaps below.
Best Commitment to the Bit
Move over, Gymnasties! Several Kentucky gymnasts’ fathers donned inflatable T-Rex costumes to cheer on their daughters during floor warm-ups prior to the team’s meet against Eastern Michigan. Kentucky dads go hard.
Legacy Gym Slam
LSU sophomore Aleah Finnegan earned a perfect 10 on vault, completing the Gym Slam started by her older sister Sarah, who graduated in 2019. The elder Finnegan competed a Yurchenko full and so was capped at a perfect 9.950 (which she scored her senior season).
ESPN reporter Holly Rowe and noted gymnastics fan is in Auburn for tomorrow’s basketball College Game Day. But on her night off before her busy work day, she chose to soak in some great gymnastics by taking LSU at Auburn from the front row alongside the gymnasties. We love having Rowe as a part of the gymternet!
No Tea. No Shade.
Missouri’s Twitter account featured some scoring subtweets during its meet at Florida, including this Backyardigans reference.
The Ultimate Tear Jerker
After her latest 10.0 on floor this weekend, Jordan Chiles ran up to embrace her mother in the stands, portraying the significance of this moment. While Chiles held back tears, so did gymnastics fans everywhere.
Two years ago, Natalie Wojcik earned her first perfect 10.0 on beam at Michigan’s annual Flip for Chip meet. This year’s purple meet brought more of the same, as Wojcik matched the feat en route to her first all-around victory of 2023.
Blast from the Past
After Jessica Hutchinson was pulled due to an illness, Lynnzee Brown made her highly anticipated return to the floor lineup this weekend for the first time since tearing her Achilles. This year’s routine is an ode to Denver’s floor greats, Nina Mcgee and Nikole Addison, fitting for one of the greatest to ever wear a Pioneer leotard.
No Grip? No Problem.
Missouri sophomore Jocelyn Moore pulled a veteran move this weekend, completing her bar routine even after one of her grips left the chat. Some might call it an equipment malfunction, but Moore calls it an opportunity for another 9.850.
