World Champion Morgan Hurd Gets A Congratulatory Tweet from JK Rowling

Morgan Hurd's life changed forever last night when she became the all-around World Champion.

Morgan, an adorable, whip smart little sprite is an avid reader and a huge Harry Potter.  Today, Morgan received a congratulatory tweet from Harry Potter author, JK Rowling. The gymternet at large rallied together to retweet to Rowling to tweet to Morgan. Their efforts paid off greatly.

Needless to say, Morgan's day, or maybe her entire YEAR, was made.

Tomorrow, Morgan will represent the USA in the beam final where she qualified in 2nd.  As world champion, she joins an impressive list of fellow US women world champions including, Bridget Sloan, Kim Zmeskal, Shannon Miller, Chellsie Memmel, Jordyn Wieber and of course, Simone Biles.

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.
