Weird that they used a 0.3 step as the reason for Kohei losing instead of his 1 point fall in quals since he lost by 0.8. But really interesting overall. Apparently in MAG steps that are 1ft in length are now worth 0.3 in this COP, while they used to be worth 0.1. That’s a big contrast to WAG where steps of over a shoulder length used to be  0.3, but now it has to be over one meter (around 3ft) to be worth 0.3. Kakeru Tanigawa’s advisor talks about how Kakeru works on landings using his arms since rules are so strict now. Kakeru says his goal is to show the beauty of Japanese gymnastics to the world :D. That sounds a lot like Kohei always says.

I also uploaded Kohei’s high bar from 2014 Tokyo World Cup since he stuck a triple twisting double layout dismount here. It was no longer on YouTube because of MarcosArtGym’s account being deleted. RIP.

I uploaded an HD copy of Kohei’s high bar from last year’s All Japan high bar final, since I couldn’t find one on YouTube anymore and it’s one of his best routines. 🙂

42 brazilian male gymnasts have come fowars with sexual assault accusations against ex-national team cordinator Fernando de Carvalho Lopes. The abuse allegedly occurred from 2001 until 2016, when Lopes was removed from the position after a denounce made by a underaged gymnast. The investigation did not go foward and the case was ignored until gymnasts Petrix Barbosa, medalist in the 2011 PanAm Games, heard about the Nassar Scandal and made comments about what would happen if brazilian gymnasts were heard too. This prompted an investigation by brazilian sports noticiary Globoesporte, who published the news today. Allegedly, the abuses were an open secret in the gymnastics clubs in São Paulo and the athletes and coaches would frequently joke around the subject. (X)
