I suspect the US already kind of already know who they are sending (or rather who they are saving from) bc simone was replying on her ask.fm that she and aly won't be there. I suspect that they already somewhat plan it since it's only 1wk before US classics.
Guess will have to wait for more official statements...
Official WAG US Pan Am to be named at June 29-July 3 camp. Awfully close to Pan Am start date. Wonder who it will be/wont be if Simone and Aly are not going to be sent. This is also so close to Classics it will not be easy for those competing at both. or would those at pan am get excused from classics?
Marta is using Pan Ams to test out certain people for Worlds. Aly and Simone have likely already proved themselves at Jesolo. My guess is Bailie will be going to Pan Ams, in order to get more international experience as a senior. I hope Nia will be healthy enough for Pan Ams. I'm anxiously waiting for her senior debut. She missed Jesolo because of an injury.
Absolutely no idea. It's not really fair to base women's vault start values on men's vault start values. The handspring double front is worth less than the TTY in the men's code, but the opposite is true in the women's code. Women prefer round-off entry vaults while men prefer handspring vaults, and that's reflected in their respective codes.
Every single team had EF substitutions, not just the Americans. Right now, I'm working through the qualifications to figure all of them out. If substitutions are gonna be mentioned, it shouldn't just be about the Americans. I try to keep this site as neutral and unbiased as possible.
True. the Canadian also did with their juniors once I think. Would be good to be able to figure all the subs out. I figure worth mentioning subs to clarify to someone who didn't see the competition but would wonder why it is that Biles qualified 1st to all 4 but then it's Ross and Key that medaled.
