Why doesn't Weiber try and qualify for vault finals?

From what I've read about the other teams in this subdivision, Brazil is having a pretty solid day overall and did especially good on FX, the German girl with the crazy UB routine hit her routine (I think her name is Seitz??), and Chuso did great on VT. :)

She doesn't have a second vault from another family that she and her coach feel comfortable enough with to train it regularly. Something about avoiding injury, IIRC from a comment made at VISAs.

Li isn't even doing bars apparently.

What's the point of having her on the floor in a leo then? :mad:

I didn't even think the alternate could be out on the floor?

Anna Li is on the floor and in a leotard, but she won't do bars...WTF?

I guess there's a judging delay on the FX right now and Dos Santos from BRA hasn't done her routine yet. That has to suck waiting for the scores so long before you can compete. :eek:

Maybe she was out of underwear?

Maybe they were ready to have Anna do bars if the USA had some bobbles and troubles on the other events? Her score would be important then to help the team qualify. I have no idea if this is possible or not but I can see them having her ready to go just in case there was a disaster somewhere and they needed her score. No clue really, just speculating here. :confused:

Can I say how much I love the fact that Chuso is 3 years OLDER than me and still competing?

:mad: for Anna too, grr.

FYI: USA has the highest team score on FX and VT and the second highest score on BB. :eek:

Wow! 14 for Raisman on bars even with the really tough judging.
