Is it noteworthy that WOGA has got two girls to worlds, given Valeri has stepped back from coaching the elites? Also, how does Marta announce the team to the gymnasts at camp? Do those who don't make it just leave? And also did Macy and Nica get added to the national team in order to trial?

For sure! It shows that they can be successful even without Valeri! :) I’m actually glad Valeri isn’t around anymore because he burns out all his girls. 

And I’m not sure the exact details of how she announces the team, but I believe all the girls sit in one room and she just says “the 2014 World team is…..” and then says the names of the girls who made it. The girls who didn’t make it leave the next day and the girls who did stay to train. (They leave for China next week I believe.) 

For you’re last question, no….Macy and Nica did not get added. They only would have been added if they made the team.

Oh I forgot I reblogged this! lol 

But that’s tough. I like Mckayla and Simone’s amanar, but if I had to pick I think I like Mckayla’s a little better. She’s a bit cleaner! :)

Why do you think they chose maddie over Brenna?!?!

Maddie must have looked more prepared. I mean REALLY prepared. Brenna is a way stronger gymnast when she’s “on” but I guess that’s the problem…she just hasn’t been consistent enough this season. At this point in time, Maddie probably has a higher hit rate.

Let's say the junior national team would go to worlds this year, what would your TF line up be like?

Consisting only of juniors? 

The team would be Key, Foberg, Dennis, Flatley, Chiles, and Gaskins? (I wanna say Ragan but she’s not on the national team..)

Vault: Chiles, Key, Dennis

Bars: Key, Foberg, Dennis

Beam: Dennis (maybe Foberg), Key, Flatley

Floor: Foberg, Key, Dennis (maybe Chiles instead of Foberg..)

Gaskins would be there in case someone got injured since I couldn’t really find a spot for her in the lineup. LOL. But damn this would be a pretty strong team…maybe even stronger than the seniors? hahah
