Aly Raisman's Floor Routine At Jesolo

Aly Raisman competed in her first competition back since she won the gold medal at the 2012 London Olympics on floor exercise.

Aly and team USA competed at the City of Jesolo Trophy and as usual, dominated.
Aly looked fierce on the balance beam and she came back with a killer new floor routine. She doesn't have the ridiculous difficultly that Simone Biles has (Simone's got Superman levels of difficulty), but she's still got some mad skills. She opens with a full to double Arabian to Front layout that she lands on her toes just within the bounds of the floor. Then, she does an amazing, gorgeous piked double Arabian.

Her tumbling is clean as ever, but she's majorly improved on her leaps and her dance looks beautiful and much, much more expressive. She scored a 15.2 (6.2 D score, 9.000 execution)

There is no doubt about it, Aly is back.

Katelyn Ohashi Sets the Rumors Straight

American Cup winner Katelyn Ohashi has been out of competition for a while due to injuries.

Since she won the American Cup in March, she's been largely absent from the USA Gymnastics scene. In April, she turned down international assignments at the City of Jesolo Cup because she was recovering from shoulder surgery. She was absent from the national championships in August, presumably for the same reason.
