I don’t hate American gymnastics in general, it’s just that my favorite Americans NEVER seem to have successful senior elite careers and the girls who end up making world and Olympic teams are ones I don’t care for.

who do you think the most underrated US elites are? how about the most underrated NCAA team? individual NCAA gymnasts from super 6?
I think Peyton Earnst was a bit underrated as an elite. I mean I’m sure part of it was that she was overshadowed by the rise of Simone, Kyla’s senior elite AA debut, teammate Bailie Key, McKayla Maroney, etc., but I found her pretty impressive. She did nice leaps:
including a split 3/2 that was actually pretty close to completed most times, and she could also tumble - she did a nice DLO and double arabian.
She also had an excellent DTY - very clean, and LOOK AT THE DISTANCE AND CHEST POSITION:
She was also capable of bar routines and beam routines in the mid to high 14s. Idk like I get that she never had a ton of elite success and that’s part of why there wasn’t much hype around her but I think her potential to be a great AAer was a bit overlooked.
As far as NCAA goes, I don’t pay much attention to the team aspect but I think GWU had a great year? And Alicia Boren and Kiana Winston are my faves.
You’re non international 2017 world champions. 2017 was a year known as the underdog year, and that is not in a bad way at all. Teams who’ve never globed before this weekend, globed. Steel and ECE M5 got their first world championship title while Brandon Senior Black went back to back.
