Aly Raisman competed in her first competition back since she won the gold medal at the 2012 London Olympics on floor exercise. Aly and team USA competed at the City of Jesolo Trophy and as usual, dominated.

Today is March 14th. It's also pi day (3.14 from your high school geometry classes) and it is the eighteenth birthday of the one and only, the fabulous and fantastics, the Simone "$eamoney" Biles, two time world all-around champion.
Great Britain's Catherine Lyons is only one of the most promising talents on the junior scene, with beautiful artistry and glorious form and execution, her gymnastics is breath taking. Recently, a GIF of the 14-year-old training a Memmel turn (double spin in Y position) on beam surfaced on Tumblr.
Last night during podium training for the American Cup, two time world all-around champion, Simone Biles debuted her upgraded floor routine. Simone, who took second at the last American Cup she competed in 2013, showed her versatility and all around awesomeness with her ridiculous new routine. Her floor routine was already pushing the boundaries of the laws of physics, but now, she's just plain defied them.
Athletes from around the world gathered in Dallas, Texas for podium training at the American Cup. Simone Biles was seen getting some serious air time on her Amanar vault. USA Gymnastics posted this video on their Instagram account of Simone. Big air for @simonebiles on her Amanar moments ago during podium training at #ATTAC2015!

For what seems like the umpteenth year in a row, Anastasia Grishina is injured and will miss Russian Championships. It was reported that Anastasia re-injured her knee when she under-rotated a double twisting yurchenko during training this week. She injured her knee after under-rotating a triple twist on floor during last year's Russian Championships.
Who knew Svetlana Khorkina was a Tarantino fan? This floor routine of Svetlana's at the 1998 European Championships in St. Petersburg, Russia. It's set to the music from the film by Quentin Tarantino, Pulp Fiction .

This video has been floating around Tumblr for a while (yes, I am very behind and I am sorry) and The Magnificent USA, Russian and Romania confirmed that this is Alyssa.
