Other Dominoes May Fall After Elimination of Men’s Gymnastics at Cal
From CrossFit Marin:
While the loss of Cal’s men’s gymnastics team is a significant loss, the damage may be more severe as this plays out. At this point Cal is Stanford’s only competitor in California. So they will now have to travel out of state for EVERY away meet. This increases the cost of the men’s program at Stanford, and increases the likelyhood [sic] that it too will be cut. This would be another program that has produced some of the top athletes in the country. With Stanford gone it could gradually mean the death toll for collegiate men’s gymnastics as a whole. Things have been heading in this direction for a while and this needs to be reversed.
That’s certainly something to think about. Stay tuned.
