  1. Based on Puiu’s pretty bad showing at Nationals this past weekend i had thought based on this that Romania changed the nominative roster order to have her as the alternate instead of Carmen Ghiciuc, until i realized that the gymnasts here are in alphabetical order.
    Just a heads up to anybody reading this: the gymnasts are in alphabetical order! the last one listed isn’t the presumed alternate like on the official PDF released by the FIG!

    • Hahaha yeah I put them in alphabetical order and then when an alternate is officially announced, I remove them from the team list and put them in the copy below stating “NAME is the alternate.”

    • She hasn’t really achieved anything this year. For a qualifying worlds you need the best team at the right moment. Maybe she’ll compete at the WC circuit. Let’s hope so ! Now that BB leader Marine Boyer is expected to compete at worlds (and that France is expected to qualify) the BB qualification through the WC serie is really opened (definitely more than the other 3 events).

  2. In Slovenia, Adela Šajn is in and Lucija Hribar is out. As you know in gymnastics, one day you’re in and the next day, you’re out. Confirmed today after a series of tests. So happy for Adela!!! (I don’t know Lucija much)

    • Lucija is great and had one of the better chances to qualify to the Olympics (she’s been the strongest all-arounder in Slovenia this quad, capable of about a 48 AA on a good day). She’s been injured this year, so I’d imagine that’s why she’s out, but happy for Adela to get the chance even though she doesn’t do AA and won’t really have a shot at qualifying for Tokyo.

      • Adela said she had to train bars and vault again as part of the selection process. I think she must have between 3.5-4.0 D on UB and a 1.5 Yurchenko on VT (which is not too bad when you haven’t trained for years). It must have paid off since she was selected over Lucija (who was probably a favorite for being an AAer but made a series of mistakes during the process).

  3. Okay, here’s my predictions for the US team: Simone, Sunisa, Morgan, Riley, Grace, MaKayla.
    (Not sure who’d be the alternate, but I think it’s probably these 6 going to worlds.)
