Oklahoma has posted a new training video on Facebook, where the gymnasts showed off new and old skills and combinations on vault, bars and beam. While veterans look as polished as always, freshmen particularly impressed for their very mature and ready-for-competition performances.

On the uneven bars, freshman Anastasia Webb showed Oklahoma-style lines, i.e. perfect!, a beautiful Ray and a very straight Pak salto.

On balance beam, freshmen Evy Schoepfer, Carly Woodard and Abigail Matthews showed off very clean and difficult series. Evy trained a BHSO + BHSO + LOSO, Carly a free-cartwheel to BHSO and Abigail a solid BHSO + LOSO.

Returning stars looked impressive as well. Senior AJ Jackson performed a very high one-and-a-half-twisting Yurchenko on vault. Junior Nicole Lehrmann stuck a huge full-twisting double tuck off bars. And sophomore Maggie Nichols looked as fabulous as always on bars, where she perfomed a beautiful Ray and Pak salto.

Do they look ready to defend their NCAA title?

Oklahoma is starting its season on 15 January, on the road, against Georgia.
