RIP Hot Pink Nation

Well, the time has come. Hot Pink Nation is officially no more.

The evidence was clear. All week, we've not seen a hint of hot pink (save for an ombre training leo) from the ladies at Team USA.

On Ashton Locklear's Snapchat, the ladies of Team USA were looking lovely in blue podium training leos, complete with tons and tons of sparkles.

The evidence:

Maybe it's graduation goggles, but ah, I'm a bit misty eyed at the dissolution of hot pink nation.

Or maybe it's that my glasses are a bit dirty.

I'm not sure.

Hot Pink Nation will be forever in the back of our memories, gone but not forgotten. I'm sure Hot Pink Nation will make a comeback one day when we least expect it.

Then we will need to do an intervention again.

Until that day comes, it's #LetsBlindEveryoneWithOurSparkles Nation. Or maybe just Sparkle Nation.

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.
