Sacramone has looked so composed. Just a step back on her 1st vault and a minor step on her 2nd vault. Commentators are saying she appears more powerful now in her vaults than in the past.

Shapiro: injury update is a hyper-extended knee; not serious at this point in time.

Joining in the Mattie Larson lovefest, but am I the only one who is freaked out by the fact that she is 18?! Where has the time gone? I thought it was a pretty enjoyable competition overall. I'm actually getting excited about Nats.

Eys, she's deferring enrollment at UCLA IIRC. Hope it pays off!

So glad Mattie won. She's lovely, but has been too injured to show what she can do.

Poor Sami. That girl just can't catch a break. At least the injury isn't serious.

The CGA girls look too damned thin. Whitcomb has great bars though and could be really useful for the USA there.

Love Zamarippa. She's totally my new fave American gymnast.

So assuming everyone goes uninjured...which is a very big IF....I'm thinking the team for worlds (do 6 go this year?) would be Larson, Sloan, Sacramone, Kytra Hunter, Kayla Williams if recovered, and Bross. Maybe Jetter could sneak on there, but I dunno. MLT seems like a curse, so I'm kinda worried for Williams and Jetter....

I'm thinking
Bross-Bars, Beam, FX
Sloan-Vault, Bars, FX
Ali Rasiman-Vault, Beam.
Sacramone- Vault, Beam
Mattie Larson-Fx
Bar specialist.

Zamirippa could be a spoiler and over Larson if she gets the Cheng.

Just watched some vids from classics. So great to see Alicia Sacramone back, her rudi was gorgeous. How come she only did a FTY though? (It was a FTY right?)

Am liking Larson and the juniors also look good.

I'm not getting the Bross/Sloan love though and I did not enjoy their beam routines; that dismount of Bross's is fuuuuugly even before the fall and Bridget's exercise really lacked rhythm plus she seemed to have so many balance checks. And to me, both of them have sloppy(ier) lines and not the cleanest of form. Have to say, for the top two gymnasts in the world, they don't impress me at all. :(

Zamarippa is the new Mohini :) She's so clean, I think the sky is the limit for her. I'd love to see her work her full potential on bars, we could really use some good bar workers and she has a great line. She could easily do a Cheng, that was the highest layout Pod that I've ever seen her do.

Loved Bridgets new routine, she took the tkatchev out so she doesn't have flat-footed releases anymore. :cheer: That toe-on piked tkatchev-pak combo is awesome!

EYS. That made me so happy :)

Also Loves_Shizuka - I could be remembering wrong but I'm pretty sure it was a DTY.
