Day 1 in London is in the books, and it sure was an eventful one. I found my way all over London, attended a press conference with Nadia Comaneci, the men completed podium training, and in between the men's sessions I got to pop into the women's training hall at Greenwich Academy to observe a few of the top teams. Here are some of the things that stood out and some insights from the women's training.
On floor, the Americans warmed up each of their tumbling passes, and Aly Raisman looks very dialed in. Her final pass, double pike+split jump, is textbook. She looks as if she could easily do double pike, punch front. Her first pass is even more improved than at Trials. Look for her to put up a massive floor score.
