Aly Raisman--YouTube Web Series Host

Now that the second post-Olympic tour has been cancelled, Aly Raisman has time to host her own YouTube show, "Flippin' Awesome with Aly Raisman." In these short, approximately four minutes, videos, Raisman (presumably) selects videos and discusses them.

Most of the videos shown are of gymnasts and it's nice to see some lower level high school athletes get their due. But I gotta quibble with the first clip shown as an example of a stuck landing, which it clearly wasn't. Raisman has to know this. There must've been a hundred other routines on the web this week with better sticks than that. (Unless the videos are only selected from the pool of those submitted.)

It'll be interesting to see how this develops--I would like to see a bit more personality and levity in the presentation. (And judging from the tour bus video, we know that this girl has a lot of personality.)

Hi Dvora,

Are you going to the Maccabi games in Israel in July as Ali R. is going to be the Feature guest?
