UPCOMING OLYMPIC GAMES

T&T OLYMPIC TEAM TTO PARTNERS

Happy Tuesday, #Gymnastics fans! From Norway to Trinidad and Tobago, here's the latest in the world of Gymnastics:
Combs-la-Ville: The annual tournament for promising juniors just outside of Paris took place in spite of the attacks on the city of light this weekend. France's Mélissa Poitreau, a budding Beam star who will become a senior in 2017, won the All-around competition in the junior division, while Switzerland's Leonie Meier took the Espoir title by nearly four points. Tributes to the victims of the events in Paris were held before both days of competition. http://goo.gl/tsW2ck (International Gymnast Magazine)

World Gym for Life Challenge 2017: Check out the recently opened website for the World Gym for Life Challenge, which is set for July 26-30, 2017 in Vestfold (NOR)! Like the World Gymnaestrada, World Gym for Life is a Gymnastics for All event that focuses on performance, creativity and collaboration. Unlike the World Gymnaestrada, participating groups are evaluated, albeit lightly, on their performances. http://gymforlife2017.com/ (World Gym for Life Challenge)

Shawn Johnson on marriage and returning to the gym: The 2008 Olympic Beam champion is hoping to perform on the post-Olympic Tour next summer. The idea of wearing a leotard again still gives her a bit of a fright, however. http://goo.gl/R6s6sI (People Magazine)

Thema Williams shoots for the stars: The Trinidad and Tobago gymnast, now training with coach John Geddert in the U.S., is on the road to Rio after finishing 59th All-around at the Glasgow Worlds and being selected to compete at next spring's Olympic Test Event. http://goo.gl/K9ixrz (Trinidad and Tobago Guardian)

Viktoria Komova battles back: Her up-and -down World Championships experience ended with a gold medal on Uneven Bars (shared with three other gymnasts), but Viktoria Komova (RUS) is already thinking ahead to Rio, where she hopes to compete in the All-around, the event where she is the reigning Olympic silver medallist. http://goo.gl/tfQsBY (International Gymnast Magazine)

Salma Hayek's Gymnastics throwback: The 49-year-old star recently shared a picture of herself at age eight doing a straddle jump on a Trampoline. "I wish I could still do that," she wrote. http://goo.gl/RRbRiL (InStyle)

Inspired by British success: Jay Thompson, one of Great Britain's top juniors during the past few years, wasn't able to try for the Glasgow Worlds due to an Achilles injury that's still healing. But the 19-year-old admits that his teammates's success has inspired him to get even better for the future. http://goo.gl/EEPZhB (Liverpool Echo)

The Great Gabby and Simone: An enthusiastic review of the accomplishments of the current World no. 1 and 2 in Women's Artistic Gymnastics...with .gifs! http://goo.gl/4uWeNn (The Frisky)

How gymnasts go to bed: This will have you bouncing on the bed like a kid again -- unless you're actually a kid, in which it will just have you bouncing on the bed. http://goo.gl/7ryv6t (Daily Mail)

Wishing everyone a terrific week!
