The Gymnastics McLaughlin Group #1

Sorry, I’m a bit late – internet problems, a nightmare for every blogger – but if you haven’t read it yet, check out the whole discussion on Gymnastics Examiner!

Gymnastics bloggers from around the world have contributed their thoughts and insights to a series of questions about the sport and its personalities that will be posted during the upcoming days.

Here’s what they had to say on what is likely to be one of the most hotly debated topics of the year…

Viktoria Komova vs. Aliya Mustafina — who’s the better all-around gymnast?

Here’s my undecided opinion:

If you watch Mustafina’s AA at the Worlds and Komova’s AA at the YOG, the answer is clear: There’s no answer. They both have a 2.5 Yurchenko, super difficult routines on the other three apparatus — and they will both reach every event final if they do not surprisingly make a mistake.

    Great blog! I was just wondering if the McLaughlin Group Discussions taking place in the gymnastics world are actually moderated by the McLaughlin Group? If not, who moderates them?

      Thanks for your comment! Blythe over at the Gymnastics Examiner does all the work – sends out the questions and compiles them, so you could name her our ‘moderator’.
