Well not my ideal way of ending my elite career but I am so blessed and so grateful I was able to make it so far ❤❤❤❤

From the live hits on Jordyn's floor routine:
"Replay just showed that she was SUPER close to going out, but stayed in!"
Good, I thought it looked awfully close. That was a helluva FX from Wieber. :eek:

Agreed, but I think Ross's stock went down and Finnegan's and Price's stock went up. Finnegan/Price/Vega for alternates seems like a good plan.

Vega? I would much rather Finnegan, Price, and Sacramone.

You got it- those are the obvious 3 for me also. With Price somewhat threatening to actually make the team if someone above her melts down. I love Alicia on her two events but unless one of those well rounded girls gets hurt, a 2 event gymnast doesn't make too much sense. I'm not even sure that Vega would be considered above Bross or Nastia at this point, that's a tough call that won't even need to be made unless someone gets injured.

I could see that. Price, Finnegan, and the third up for grabs for whoever proves it Sunday.

I don't think so Ross proved she's absolutely essential as a bars/beam girl who can do other events (she can do a decent DTY)...

She's more consistent on bars than Douglas/Wieber and the other decent bar workers the US has are useless elsewhere.

IF anything Marta's banning Ross from doing Amanars again until after the Olympics-she's too important on bars/beam.

If you put Bross/Li on the team what happens on beam. Is Douglas truly a great option there given her inconsistency...And you put Price and Maroney together along with Raisman-well that's a huge hit on bars.

Ross has been hitting the Amanar in podium training and this one wasn't scary looking at all. She was just sluggish and didn't get the oomph she needs. I would let her try it again so long as she doesn't start to look scary in training tomorrow on it.

I'm not sure if Marta should do. Honestly the Amanar scares me, watching Jordyn land hers lock legged, Douglas/and the Kyla. I just have a very bad feeling....

I don't think Ross' stock went down tonight either. She tied Anna Li for the highest UB score of the night, was top 5 on BB and stuck some important landings on FX. Her bars score is too valuable to the team, as is her ability to be a solid lead-off gymnast on beam. As much as I love her, I really don't want to have to trust Gabby on beam in the TF in London.

Its bad news if Ross gets injured than they are stuck with Douglas on beam (which ughh...) And then too I don't know if they will be able to afford Maroney because they will HAVE take either Bross or Li both who are useless elsewhere.

Will Sacramone not be on the team?

Poor Bross going from one of the favorites to win the AA in London to just an okish bars specialist with a crummy beam, who doesnt even do floor (or vault) anymore, who even hitting on bars is outscored by Jordan Wieber, and who is now useless elsewhere.

It's not looking likely. Alicia, Aly and McKayla all can't be on the same team, IMO, and Aly & McKayla are looking like near-locks at the moment.

My local station just cut off the last of the broadcast for local news and wild fire reports. Were there any performances after Raisman's floor routine - or just interviews.

I hope I can pick up a full repeat.

Raisman was the last routine they showed. After her they went to the credits.

Edit: Just remembered, they did an interview with Jordyn.
