    She's not so great but Afan is historically unreliable on the event and they may want to give her more experience. As for Kexin, she's always had a DTY (still don't know if she has one)... In that sense she's not a one event gymnast. She did floor last year in prelims too. Apparently where Kexin really terribly sucks is beam. (Paseka too)
    Thanks. What's interesting is that they have Paseka up last in the line-up for UB.

    Maroney will be fine, y'all.
    How the FCK do 4 out of 8 gymnnasts get injured in the space of 3 weeks under one training regime??? She is a secret agent still working for Romania, I swear!!!

    They have Afan last on beam too..They may be thinking have the weakest link go last so if they fall it won't hurt team morale. There also might be some level of not showing favoritism as well.

    Honestly, this is all moot at this point (or "mute" as John Geddart would say), but she's obviously not fine if she is so injured that she cant even do one extra vault (one that she trained multiple times a few days ago) to make it into the EF to win a gold medal that is as close to a sure bet as you get in this Olympics. That's why she's on thie team-- for the EF gold. The Amanar she'll do in TF earns maybe a .2 or .3 more than a Price Amanar would score (and the Maroney step forward on the landing is bigger than ever recently). Hardly worth keeping her on the team.

    I agree that a Finnegan sub doesn't make sense (assuming Price is ALSO injured), but I do wonder what Alicia is thinking right now.

    John Roethlisberger‏ just said on twitter that Maroney is doing two vaults, not one. Hopefully he knows what he's talking about.

    My post was clearly under the speculation that Maroney was actually THAT injured, so injured infact that she cant do two back to back vaults.

    We'll see tomorrow however.

    Whoa, calm down. 99.99999% says that it's a typo and Maroney is DOING two vaults. She was fine two days ago; she trained both vaults; she's fine. Her toe injury is an old one that flared up, but she's not injured-injured. If she's too injured to do her Mustafina, then she's too injured to do an Amanar. It's logic, people. :p

    If she were two injured for two vaults, they'd probably not have her vault at all in Prelims. Kyla's DTY would be just fine for qualifying.

    I'm just concerned that someone at USAG made an error and that the powers that be will not allow Maroney to do her second vault due to a technicality.
    I can't find anything in the COP to clarify this however.

    Poths, Poths, Poths.. This is Marta and in fact Marta hasn't even managed to do that much damage. At least this time its only the alternates that are injured for the most part (and I say for the most part because of Maroney)

    Who could forget the US having two gymnasts landing on one foot on bars in prelims or the crap that went down in Athens... Who the heck knows what would have happened if Marta wasn't forced to choose the team at Trials-against her will!

    She gets the results she's gotten because the US has way more depth than anyone else.

    A GAGE girl and a Parkette are injured and suddenly Marta is a secret agent for Romania? I hate her as much as the next US gym fan, but come on.

    If this actually ends up being what happens and FIG doesn't have any mechanism to correct it, they are beyond ridiculous. (Of course, it wouldn't be the first time, so I won't feel better until I actually see McKayla get to do her second vault.)

    Oh, and if it is a USAG mistake, heads should roll over this one.

    I guess since Izbasa is the only other AAer besides Iordache, B&B are hoping to maximize her bars score by putting her up last.

    Elizabeth Price was already injured when she arrived at the Olympic training camp. I'm not sure how Marta can take the hit for something that happened at Parkettes. Ditto for what happened to Anna Li(Not a GAGE girl ) who had a freak fall off bars and as an alternate wasn't training in London under Marta's direction.

    It's already been revealed that Maroney had been dealing with this injury since May, and was simply aggravated during training.

    Just saying...

    I've got a picnic at noon tomorrow, so I'll probably have to leave in the middle of Russia's subdivision.

    It is just prelims though, so I guess I can put up with it.

    Isn't there something going on with Finney, too?

    Whaaaah....I agree, totally stupid.

    Goodness I hope Maroney is ok, would be a shame if she didn't compete in vault finals.
