P&G Champs Jrs Day 2 Live Blog

I'm back for another exciting round of live-blogging. This time, I'm live-blogging day two of the juniors. I couldn't do day 1 so easily since I was at work and work was super busy that day.

Anyways, enough about me, it's time for gymnastics. Since Jordan Chiles had withdrawn from P&Gs a couple days ago and we had some prominent juniors move up, we've seen some interesting action on the floor. Mailie O'Keefe is the day one leader. Can she keep up her lead? Refresh the page every 10 minutes or so to find out!
