  1. Where are you seeing all the US routines? I watched the replay on NBCSN. The one labeled USA tracker was an international feed and the one labeled main had US commentators. They still only showed maybe 2 US routines per rotation.


    • Lauren is THERE!

      I was streaming this morning and had the same experience as you. It’s weird NBC’s feeds are the same (when the USA tracker is supposed to show US routines). Also, annoying that they split-screened with swimming several times. But I mostly watched the “tracker” (international since it has UK commentators?), except during those split-screen times, when the voiceover was from swimming. I kept both up (just muted one); if I closed/reopened the “main” one, or even just refreshed it, it took a long time to actually show anything. (Another oddity.)

      I hope the apparatus version (showing all four) works tonight. . . .
