UPDATE!! + Documentary announcment… :)

 Announcement #1:
                    With the conclusion of the 2015 World Gymnastics Championships just a little over a week ago, we’re kind of now in a weird situation where the elite season is kind of “on hold” for a little while as we wait for the NCAA season to begin. Since we are left hanging for the next few months waiting for the NCAA season (and for some elite world cups), I’ve been looking for ways to keep up with my blog. As you may know, I plan on doing a documentary on Chellsie Memmel (surprise, surprise). However, that documentary will be delayed a bit due to not being able to get footage until later in the year. So, the documentary will most likely not be out until sometime around March or April 2016 (sorry guys, but I can’t do anything about it 😦 ). Since the documentary will not be out until Spring of 2016, I am trying to think of other things to do in the meantime, but I can’t come up with an idea so I am leaving it up to you guys to give me ideas of a project or segment or something to do while we wait for the NCAA season. Leave a comment letting me know what you want me to do.

I couldn’t find the full men’s results, but I do know that Oleg Vernayev won. 

Why do Lari and Oleg compete so much??? Part of the answer is definitely prize money :).
