  2. Why oh why doesn’t USA send a WAG.

    Anyway, excited for a lot of these gymnasts! I think everyone’s wondering if Klimenko can pull a Russian hat-trick, but she’ll face some really strong competition!

  3. When is the deadline for sending a WAG gymnast? Is it too late to name someone for the USA? Maybe Tom Forester is still waiting to see who to send?? Yes, it is total crap. Does anyone else notice that Canada sends gymnasts all over the world to compete all the time and none from the USA. What a shame!

    • No, the U.S. isn’t going. The deadline is over, and the U.S. knew back in June when they qualified a spot that they wouldn’t take it. They do send their gymnasts to multiple competitions each year but prioritize team competitions over individual, which is why they send gymnasts to Gymnix and Jesolo and Pac Rims and Pan Ams but not as many individual meets. The U.S. juniors as a whole get just as much, if not more, international experience than juniors from other countries. But the U.S. program prefers to send athletes to team meets because they can get individual competitive experience anywhere and they’ve been competing as individuals since they were five or six, but team experience is quite different and that’s why they prioritize it in their budgets.
