I don’t understand Morgan’s scores: it feels like she was scored as if it were an international competition, while the others were at a domestic one
What is there to not understand?
She is not at full difficulty.
She has watered down routines. Not sure what you expected.
Morgan has never had very high execution, now that her difficulty has significantly fallen, she’s really not in contention for anything but, at best, an alternate spot on the team. She’s known since 2019 that her only chance on the team was with a 14.5+ UB, 14.5+ VT and a consistent 14+ BB, knowing she’d never get floor difficulty back or be a top 2 AA’r again. I will be shocked if she can manage to average even one of those scores over the next month where every routine counts.
The scoring here was a little preview of what’s to come and people can deny it all they want, but the judges clearly have always deducted more highly on her than some of the other top gymnasts. Compare her and Grace’s routines. I’d say several of the top finishers here were very generously judged. Why do you think Jade went the other route? She was also one that got an extra lashing. Bring on the robot judging!
I adore Morgan’s tenacity, voice and personality, but unless she’s hiding major improvements to 2019 to pad her scores with difficulty or a couple more top tier gymnasts really tank nationals and OT, then her elite career is about to be over. I think she’s ready too, because her body might not even be able to handle NCAA after so many surgeries and she clearly loves the sport.
It’s a shame, because I actually think her rhythm and artistry is the best on the national team.
Haha the comment about the robot judging made me laugh but it’s true . I hope Jade keeps her spot and doesn’t do something dumb and lose her ticket to Tokyo that would be a shame. To be honest I’m proud she did what she did to find her own way there
Any news on Riley??
Most impressed by Leanne and Azaraya. With Leanne, her normal on bars would have out her with or above Kayla and Azaraya is super close to the top juniors here despite being a brand new elite. Leanne is one of my favorites and while she’s certainly not at the top of the list that I’d expect to make the team, I think she showed that she’s in the mix and with rank-order at trials being the new decision maker you never know.
she needs to change gym and prepare for 2024
I agree that GAGE really screwed up 4 amazing athletes this quad, but I think Leanne does have a solid shot at Tokyo.
It’ll be all or nothing for her, she’s already committed to NCAA, so unless she goes to Tokyo and goes pro, she’ll be done with elite.
Rooting for jordan!
I am surprised at how Chiles has risen up in the rank of contention. She has been around for a while but it seems like all the past years, she was never quite able to make it up into the top echelon.
Based on just my opinion. My 4 person team is Simone, Jordan Chiles, Kayla DiCello and Grace McCallum. The individual spots to Jade Carey and Sunisa Lee. Only based on the fact that Sunisas ankle problems..if Sunisa places in the top 4 at Olympic Trials then I would pur her on the Team and the individual spot would go to either Leanne Wong or Grace McCallum
Grace and Leanne as individual to win which medal pro beam if a few flatters.. I prefer Emily Lee to get that beam spot
Emily Lee?? She can’t hit her one relevant routine consistently.
It would also totally be USAG to show up in Tokyo with a team made of two newcomers that have not been to the Worlds or Olympics before. LOL
Can someone explain the vault results and why there was only gold for McKayla?
You need to perform two vaults in order to be eligible for a vault medal. Mykayla was the only one to compete two vaults (including Simone, who debuted her new vault but chose not to do a second one), so she was the automatic winner. She could have scored a 1 on each vault and still received the gold there.
I think a lot of people may be counting Riley and Suni out of their team predictions too early. The US team could easily have vault and floor covered. We just need a strong bars and beam worker. Not just bars, but both 100%. Hopefully Suni just had a bad day at the US Classic and the rumor is Riley injured her foot. They could take a serious break on floor/VT, focus mainly on bars and beam, and the already gold medal US team would be even more so. Hopefully Riley’s injury isn’t too serious.
I would go with the top 3 above (Simone, Jordan, Kayla) and as a 4th either Riley or Sunisa based on health and bars/beam reliability. There’s always McCallum, but then you’re putting a lot of pressure on Simone to carry beam. If Wong would step up bars, continue to be consistent on beam, and contribute somewhere else, she would be a great addition, but we’ll see.
Faith Torrez? What happened to her? Lyden Saltness? Sydney Morris? Lilly Leapeatt? So many people just disappeared!!
Torrez was scheduled to appear but did not. She is already qualified to Nationals.
Lippeatt skipped US Classic because she is qualified to Nationals.
Unsure about Saltness as she had not qualified to Nationals and is not out of contention with no more qualifiers left.
Bad day for almost everyone except Jordan. Basically other than Simone… and Mykayla on vault, there wasn’t even one olympic medal winning routine performed.
I hope to see significant improvements by trials because that huge gap from team USA to China/Russia is completely gone.
Also the scoring was very inconsistent. I still think Simone, Suni and Leanne are Tokyo bound and Riley, Jordan, Kayla and Grace will be vying for the other 2 spots. Gage did Kara dirty, but she’s old enough to know it, so it’s on her.
I wish I knew the status on Riley’s MRI and if she and Suni will be recovered by OTs.
McCusker’s MRI came back fine, hopefully she isn’t too injured from it.
Skinner’s vault was filthy though, zero height off the table, poor form, tucked on the last half of the vault. Amanar was out of control. Not that it matters as Skinner is irrelevant for an Olympic medal. She will be 2 per’d by Biles and Carey. Her execution on the other 3 events is the worst of the national team members. At this rate she will be lucky to qualify to trials via petition/invite. I doubt she will auto-qualify by placing top 8 in the all around at Nationals.
Link about Mccuskers MRI? None of the gym blogs have posted anything of the sort. Link please. Source?
Word on the street is, she will be only performing bars at Nationals. So, it seems like her only real shot is an individual placement.
Chelsie Memmel’s scores are incorrect and her ranking. She got a 13.7 on beam the 6th highest of the day. UB was 11.650. She didn’t perform floor. Shes in 24th with 40.1 points.
This is from Classics two weeks ago. Not Championships.
