OLYMPIC TRIALS CONTROVERSIES
  • This week, we have a commission from Club Gym Nerd member Jasmine, who asked for an episode on the history of US Olympic Trials—how teams were selected and all the major scandals. And there have been plenty.
    • 1980 - Olympic boycott hypocrisy and what happens when gymnasts tie for the last spot? (Or have alligators?)
    • 1984 - The case of Dianne Durham and the Olympic petition
    • 1988 - The Perils of Rank Order: The Early Years
    • 1992 - The back-room meeting that kept Kim Kelly off the Olympic team
    • 1996 - Only controversial if you're a Forster?
    • 2000 - Atler. Nuff said.
    • The Martha Years - Were teams really chosen months in advance?
  • Plus, we make our proposals for an ideal Olympic team selection process for the United States
