January Training Camp:Ragan Smith

The good folks at USA Gymnastics have once again came through for the Gymternet at large and they have supplied us with training videos from the January training camp.

This video features junior Ragan Smith training some pretty bad ass skills for such a tiny person.
After watching this video, I now know two things.

1. Little Ragan Smith is legit

2. All the Texas Dreams' gymnasts are training the same skill combinations on bars and floor.

3. The entire Texas Dreams' elite squad is going to be comprised of baby Kim Zmeskals.

(Okay, that was three things, so shoot me)

Little Ragan is pretty freaking awesome. She's shown training a piked full on beam, which looks super impressive. Like young Bailie Key, she is also training a Dos Santos (piked double Arabian on floor), a Ricna and a Downie on bars.

It seems we've transitioned from having the weakest event be bars to the weakest even being, I don't know, beam? Floor maybe?
