This week, the world turned its attention to a television event in Tokyo known as the 2020 Olympic Games. We discuss the Simone Biles situation, the public's reaction and the questions we have about the situation. Mikhail Kolyada performed his short program at a summer camp. Meanwhile, the summer competitions continued in the U.S. Jessica Calalang and Brian Johnson and Yaroslav Paniot made their competitive returns at 2021 Glacier Falls Summer Classic and won the event. We debate which skaters deserve the TBD for Skate America and whom should be sent to the 2021 Nebelhorn Trophy. We also break down performances by Lindsay Thorngren, Gracie Gold, Audrey Shin, and Lucas Broussard in the latest edition of 'This and That'.
