U.S. Championships begin TODAY!


Greetings all, and welcome to gymnastics season once again! As I'm sure most of you know, Nationals kicks off tonight with the Senior Men's competition (preceded by the Junior Men's competition this afternoon).

Television coverage begins tomorrow (Thursday) on Universal Sports, and continues through the weekend on both Universal Sports and NBC. It appears that Universal Sports will also offer a live webcast beginning tomorrow: www.usa-gymnastics.org/events/2009/visachamps/schedule.php

For those wanting to follow the action as it happens today, Inside Gymnastics offers this guide of sorts:  USAG will have live, real-time scoring for EVERY Championships session, except for the junior men, whose age groups complicate scoring sheets. Scores will still be posted, as quickly as possible at usa-gymnastics.org. USAG will also be offering Quick Hits for all sessions.

MTA: So it appears USA Gymnastics IS doing Quick Hits for the Junior Men today after all: www.usa-gymnastics.org/events/2009/visachamps/qh/juniormen.html

And some big men's gymnastics news to report... David Sender has announced to Inside Gymnastics that he's going to hang up his grips after Championships, opting instead to attend vet school. In the meantime, though, he's planning to compete a monster vault at Championships. I have to say that I'm disappointed we won't see him on the World team, especially since everyone is saying what fantastic condition he's in right now, but who knows, maybe he'll decide to come out of retirement before London. :-)
