Did we get the rankings right?
#14 Brady…his last name is misspelled. It’s YAMAMOTO. If that can be corrected, he can get tagged. Thanks!!
Done. Thanks for letting us know!
My opinion: I don’t see a lot of deference between Penev and Malone. Malone has proven to be very consistent, but the consistency argument could go to Penev as well. What I always look at for Jr going to Sr is pommel horse and rings as those are hard to develop for elite gymnasts. Penev has the advantage on PH while Malone has Rings. Seeing Penev’s brother not develop on rings makes me think that the younger Penev will have a similar disadvantage. Then the question is: Will Malone get better at PH? I think he will. I feel the upside is with Malone.
I respect that. Great analysis of Malone and Penev!
