chemguy79 saidI still follow elite gymnastics, although not nearly as much as I did back in the 90s and the Sydney Olympics when I was still training and competing ... not at the elite level, but I digress.
My favorite event was pommel horse, so I love watching the college and elite routines. Floor exercise is still impressive, but I am amazed by some of the skills that are now thrown on high bar. The thing that I love about men's gymnastics (gymnastics in general too) is that every event has something unique that catches your eye and makes you go ... DAMN! Amazing sport and I wish that I could still train and be involved with the sport.
Wow, I must congratulate you for loving pommel horse because I hated pommels with a passion. I always thought men's gymnastics would be commercially more popular without pommel horse because it's just so BORING compared to the other 5 events haha.
But watching guys like Sasha Artemev, Xiao Qin, and Zhang Hongtao makes me hate pommels just a little bit less because they make the skills look beautiful.
I actually don't like watching men's floor anymore. It looks so tiring because of what the guys have to do now in order to get a high difficulty score. Guys are doing 5-7 tumbling passes these days with little to no transition skills in between passes! It's really hard to accomplish all that in 70 seconds. Almost every guy looks utterly exhausted after a floor routine.
