Strathern tightens his grips and chalks up as the coaches shift the mats. Three big releases to start off the routine coming up. The bench shouts a round of Let’s Go Blue and Strathern salutes, stem cast endo up pirouette, beautiful Kovacs, nice Tkatchev, beautiful Tkatchev half. Perfect full spin to El, pirouette and the dismount- nice half in half out small hop forward on the landing. Great start for Michigan and Strathern has shown he is not letting his vault bother him in the least. Hunter up next.
