    • Marta was injured in the spring…but she actually returned this weekend and did fine so I’d imagine they submitted this before she was back and she’ll probably be added. Not sure where Angel Wong is! And yes, great to see Jonna going in some capacity.

      • Ah, good to hear that about Marta! I love watching her compete – she’s one of the most sporting gymnasts around, love the way she watches everyone else and cheers for them all, regardless of country. And she’s just so much fun to watch on floor… almost an actress as well as a dancer and acrobat! Lauren are you going to Glasgow? Just want to say thank you for all your work on this site – you must spend hours every day on it and it’s wonderful!
