Day 1 of the 2017 senior P&G championships was held in Anaheim, California on 18 August.

2016 Olympic alternate and 2017 American Cup champion Ragan Smith of Texas Dreams leads the senior competition with a 57.400. Smith posted the highest scores on both balance beam (14.500/5.9) and floor exercise (14.200/5.6). She also scored a 14.300/6.0 on bars and a 14.400/5.4 on vault. Smith showed off her new sassy choreography on floor, as well as some spectacular tumbling, including a double layout, a double Arabian and a one-and-a-half twist into triple twist.


Riley McCusker of MG Elite had a great competition for second place (56.100), despite still coming back from injury and competing watered down routines on vault and balance beam. She posted the highest score of the competition on bars with a 14.550/6.1, as well as the second best score on beam with a 14.400/5.6. McCusker also scored a 13.900/5.2 for her ‘sassy ballerina’ floor routine and a 13.250/4.4 on vault for a FTY. Considering that she is not back to full strength, McCusker had a great Day 1 of competition, which draws her one step nearer the World Championships team.


Third was Jordan Chiles of Naydenov with a 55.850. Chiles’ best score came on vault, where she performed the difficult Amanar vault for a 15.150/5.8. It is very hard to score over 15.0 these days, which says a lot about her execution and overall potential. Chiles then scored a 13.950/5.4 on bars, a 13.550/5.3 on beam and a 13.200/5.3 on floor.


Margzetta Frazier of Parkettes was fourth with a 55.400. Frazier scored a 14.300/5.4 on vault, a 14.100/5.9 on bars for a routine packed with difficulty and release moves, a 13.650/5.5 on beam and a 13.350/5.2 on floor.


Fifth was Trinity Thomas of Prestige with a 55.300. Despite getting very little media attention, Thomas is an outstanding gymnast with a huge potential, and she had a great first day of competition. She was third on beam with a 14.200/5.5 for a very solid routine, and tied for second on floor with a 14.100/5.7. She then scored a 13.300/4.4 on vault for a clean FTY and a 13.700/5.7 on the uneven bars.

Sixth was Morgan Hurd of First State with a 54.100. Hurd is another gymnast who has just come back from an elbow injury, but nevertheless she had a good competition. Her best score came on balance beam (14.000/5.5), and she then scored a 13.900/5.4 on vault, a 13.900/5.6 on bars and a 12.300/5.4 on floor. Despite some trouble on floor, Hurd was one of the few gymnasts to compete the very difficult double-double (Silivas) tumbling pass.

Shania Adams of Buckeye was seventh with a 53.950. Adams had a regular competition, scoring a 13.400/4.4 on vault, a 13.200/5.1 on bars, a 13.900/5.8 on beam and a 13.450/5.3 on floor.

2017 U.S. Classic all around champion Alyona Shchennikova of 5280 Gym was only eighth after some trouble on balance beam (11.950/5.4) with a 53.750. She however posted the second best score of the night on bars with a 14.500/6.3, as well as a good 14.350/5.4 on vault.


Ninth was Emily Gaskins on Cincinnati Gym with a 53.700. Gaskins’ best score was a 14.500/5.4 on vault for a beautiful DTY. She also scored a 13.250/5.1 on floor for a somewhat underappreciated routine.

Tenth was Deanne Soza of Texas Dreams with a 53.300. Soza’s best score was a 14.100/5.4 on vault.

2017 U.S. Classic champion on vault and floor, Jade Carey of Oasis tied for second place on floor with a 14.100/5.8. She showed off some very difficult tumbling passes, including a full-twisting double layout. On vault, she competed two very difficult vaults, a Rudi and an Amanar, but unfortunately she sat the latter down.

Olympic alternate Ashton Locklear is making her way back to full shape, taking third place on bars with a 14.350/5.5. I am not sure she will be considered World championships-ready, but her lines are as beautiful as always, and she deserves a World medal so much!


Unfortunately it was a bad night for Victoria Nguyen of Chow’s, who fell on all apparatuses. However, she is coming back from a long series of injuries, and hopefully she will not be discouraged by a disappointing night.

Day 2 of competition is taking place on Sunday, 20 August 2017. A live stream will be available on YouTube on the USA Gymnastics channel.

Day 1 of the 2017 junior P&G championships was held in Anaheim, California on 18 August.

Defending junior U.S. all around champion Maile O’Keefe of Salcianu Elite and Emma Malabuyo of Texas Dreams went head-to-head all the way through the competition, and proved to be ready to compete with senior atheletes. Both gymnasts are turning senior next year.

Maile O’Keefe topped Day 1 with an impressive 57.200. O’Keefe, who is committed to the University of Utah, posted the highest score of the competition on bars, a 14.200/5.8, as well as the second highest scores on all other apparatuses. She scored a 14.600/5.5 on vault (tied), a 14.500/5.9 on beam and a 13.900/5.2 on floor. O’Keefe showed off beautiful long lines on floor, consistent vaulting and high difficulty on both bars and beam.


Just behind her was Emma Malabuyo with a 57.050. Malabuyo, who is committed to UCLA, scored a 14.250/5.5 on floor, which was not only the highest score of the competition, but one of the highest scores in the world. She also scored a 14.100/5.4 for second place on bars, a 14.200/5.9 on beam for third place and a 14.500/5.5 on vault for fifth place. Malabuyo is a joy to watch on all apparatuses, but she shines especially on beam and floor, where her blooming personality meets difficulty and great execution.


Third and fourth were charming GAGE gymnasts Kara Eaker and Leanne Wong. Both gymnasts have exquisite lines and presence, and stunning execution. They both competed also as Level 10s at the Junior Olympics this year, and as elite gymnasts they still need to build some difficulty, but they have huge potential for the future.

Kara Eaker was third with a 55.500. She posted the highest score of the competition on beam, an outstanding 14.850/5.9, for a routine that includes a free-cartwheel + LOSO + LOSO. Eaker was also third on bars with a 13.500/5.0, sixth on floor 13.450/4.9 and thirteenth on vault 13.700/4.6.


Leanne Wong was fourth with a 54.700. Wong was first on vault with a 14.650/5.5 for the most beautiful and clean DTY of the competition with only a tiny step back. She left me with a bittersweet feeling though, as seconds before in warmups she had stuck a stunning DTY. Wong also tied for third on floor with a 13.850/5.1. Words can hardly express how beautiful her form, poise and execution is on this apparatus. Wong also scored a 13.250/5.0 on beam and a 12.950/4.8 on bars.


Fifth was Adeline Kenlin of IGN with a 54.050. Kenlin is another extraordinarily beautiful gymnast, who however did not have the best day, falling on bars on her double front dismount and wobbling on her best apparatus, beam. Kenlin still posted the fourth best score on beam, a 13.950/6.0 and the seventh best on floor, a 13.400/5.2.

Sixth was Olivia Dunne of ENA Paramus with a 53.750. Dunne posted the fifth best score on floor, a 13.650/5.4 and tied for fifth on beam with a 13.700/5.7.

Seventh was Audrey Davis of WOGA  with a 53.550. Davis tied for fourth on bars with a 13.300/5.1 and fifth on beam with a 13.700/5.5.

Eighth was Jay Jay Marshall of TIGAR with a 53.350. She had the seventh best score on vault with a 14.300/5.5.

Tied for ninth were Annie Beard of Texas Dreams and Sunisa Lee of Midwest with two 52.800s. Beard is a star in the making, who has great potential and loves the stage. She kept her ending pose on floor for so long, that she made her coach Kim Zmeskal wonder whether there is a deduction to keep a pose for too long! Lee was not at her best, but posted the third highest score of the competition (tied) on floor, a 13.850/6.2.

Grace McCallum of Twin City Twisters, who tied for twelfth in the all around, also tied for second on vault with a 14.600/5.6.

Uneven-bar specialist Gabby Perea of Legacy Elite competed only on her pet-event, but fell on her Tkatchev for a 13.100/5.8. She however has great difficulty and executions, and could help Team USA significantly on this apparatus in the years to come.

Day 2 of the junior competition resumes on Sunday, 20 August 2017. A live stream is available on YouTube on the USA Gymnastics channel.

The 2017 U.S. Classic was held at the Sears Centre Arena in Chicago, Illinois on 28-29 July 2017.

Alyona Shchennikova of 5280 Gymnastics won the all around title with a 54.950. Shchennikova posted the second best score on the uneven bars, a 14.500/6.2. She also scored a good 14.350/5.4 on vault, a 13.250/5.2 on floor and a 12.850/5.7 on beam.

Second was Abby Paulson of Twin City Twisters with a 53.100. She scored a 13.00/4.4 on vault, a 13.350/5.4 on bars, a 13.500/5.8 on beam and a 13.250/5.0 on floor.

Tied for third were Kalyany Steele of CO Aerials and Luisa Blanco of WOGA with two 52.900s. Steele scored a 14.250/5.4 on vault, a 13.150/5.6 on bars, a 13.600/5.5 on beam and an 11.900/4.5 on floor.

Smith’s beam score seemed slightly inflated, but the routine was the most solid we have seen in the world up to this point.


Trinity Thomas of Prestige posted the third highest scores of the competition on both bars and beam, a 13.900/5.7 and a 14.000/5.3 respectively. Morgan Hurd of First State posted the second highest score on floor, a 13.850/5.4.
