Brooklyn Moors Gorgeous Floor

During podium training today for next week's world championships in Montreal, Canada's Brooklyn Moors made thousands of gymnerds squeal with delight over her floor routine.

Brooklyn is the younger sister of 2012 Canadian Olympian and floor queen, Victoria. The relation is obvious. She shows the same unique choreography (they share the same coach in Elvira Saadi) and tumbling skills.

In this video, Brooklyn's opening floor pass is the Podkepaeva (double front half out, named for 1995 World Champion and 1996 Olympic Champ Lilia Podkepaeva), landed beautifully. Her choreography is wonderful and is supported by her unique floor music. Instead of loud, strong beating music, Brooklyn's music sounds like a delicate notes of a music box and is quietly demanding and has a sad, almost nostalgic quality to it.

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.
