They really haven't had a team of old for about 12 years now. Not since Sudney has Russia had a truly phenomenal team and that also goes for Russia's mediocre team with one very strong gymnast that ended up winning in 2010 at the World Championships. 2010 was the weakest women's team final in the history of women's gymnastics. The truth is, 2012 was the best team Russia has had (even with injury and mistake problems) since Sydney and they would not have won over the US that night no matter what. They also need to fire the Rodionenkos if they ever hope to have a prayer of a team even approaching last years. After viewing routines.. As long as she stand everything up, even with a landing deduction on every pass, I think Afan stands a stronger shot at winning the world title again on FX than she did in 2011. She's the returning Olympian that gets the majority of my love thus far (and Kyla Ross).
