Missouri @ Georgia Live & Washington @ Utah Live Blog

The SEC extravaganza continues into Saturday afternoon with Missouri at Georgia.

It's a rebuilding year for Georgia for sure. They've struggled to put up 6 healthy athletes on each event. Yesterday, assistant coach Charlie Tamayo got the axe, because he wasn't meeting expectations.

Lets see what's in store for these two teams this afternoon!

Going to switch to the PAC12 with Washington at Utah meet. staying on this post.

For Utah, I'm most looking forward to seeing Makenna Merrill Giles does, she was solid last week and she beat MyKayla Skinner if I'm not mistaken. Utah's got a lot of depth and it's good to see them play around with line-ups instead of it just being the Skinner show.

Maddie Desch Retires From Elite

Yesterday, US gymnast Maddie Desch announced her retirement from elite gymnastics via her Instagram account.

Maddie, who trains at Great American Gymnastics Express, aka "GAGE" explained she came to the decision to retire due to a nagging injury that prevented her from training at the elite level.

Maddie Gardiner's Glorious Beam Series

I love NCAA gymnastics.

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.
