Washington @ Stanford Live Blog

It's Super Bowl Sunday gymnastics time!

Today, it's brought to you by the PAC-12, bringing us Washington at Stanford.

Stanford had a really strong meet against Arizona last weekend, pulling out a win in the last rotation.

Will they keep it up or will Washington prevail?

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.
