But Tom Z. has some 'splaining to do.
It's enough to make me wish USFSA had Martha Karolyi whispering in their ear about "showing readiness". Aww, heck, at the least they should have used 4CCs before they named the 2nd and 3rd spots in disciplines where they had no clear designee.[/QUOTE]
Coco.....you are right on the money. Karolyi's selection techniques have really improved US women's gymnastics international results. I have been saying for a long time there is a better way than solely US Nationals as the selection criteria. Other skating federations and other sports have clearly demonstrated this. USFS needs to wake up!
