… for the following reasons:
- best commentary – the commentators not only mention the hard training or tell us that the gymnast (cause they can’t remember the name) stepped out of bounds (that’s the American way – thinking of the American Cup coverage…) but they really know every single athlete & their backgrounds, the name of the skills (for example the handstand positions in acrobatic gymnastics: flag, crocodile, mexican…), the requirements etc.
- fantastic camera work – different perspectives, some close, some give a good overview, just perfect!
- high quality
- they are up-to-date – thinking of the Worlds in London… they had some good videos briefly after the competition + some interviews & features
- variability – they cover artistic, acrobatic, rhythmic gymnastics, tumbling, aerobic; they report from competitions but also visit different gyms all over the country
They covered the recent British Acrobatic Gymnastics Championships 2010.
