Rotating while Russian!
Time for a new thread!!
Russia also isn't allowed to host any world/continental championships until 2023 because of their doping program sanctions, so even if they weren't mad at FIG, it would be a no-go.I would say to put it in Russia but Russia is mad at FIG rn so maybe not this time around.
I’m a little sad that she’s not ready for Worlds but delighted she’ll do the tour and continue beyond!Chellsie Memmel shared on her instagram story that she will be doing the goldoveramerica tour and will not be trying for worlds as she's not ready. But she made it clear she's not retiring yet.
I think there's a very realistic possibility that the US doesn't win any medals at Worlds this year.
They are having a selection camp sometime in September. People are joking that Tom will pick top four AA (which makes no sense for an individual worlds LOL).how is the US team decided? It is not a lot of time till October after all?
I thought Konnor McClain had said her season was over and she’s trying for 2022. Seems like she needs to get her mental game in order before jumping straight to worlds.They are having a selection camp sometime in September.

I really hope some of the NCAA freshman will try for worlds. Logistically it's feasible for an NCAA gymnast to do worlds in the fall. Shallon Olsen has done it twice and as of August 9 she is on the short list for the Canadian team selection. (If anyone is curious you can read the Canadian selection rules here)
Skye Blakeley is one to look out for if she has recovered from the injury she had at the Olympic trials, as well as Konnor McClain depending how her training is going.
It will be interesting to see how many countries send top gymnasts to worlds this year so soon after the Olympics. Even if the US ends up sending a B or C team they could steal get some medals in what may be a weaker field.
Jordan Chiles recently said that she wants to go to a WC. I wonder if she will try to make it this year?

Yes, this is what her Mother had confirmed:I thought she withdrew from Nationals/Olympics trials with the hopes of being ready for Worlds this fall.
Interesting. I think she'd be better off working up into senior international competitions before leaping straight to even a depleted Worlds, especially given her anxiety issues. I guess we'll see.Yes, this is what her Mother had confirmed:
Glad for her for this opportunity- I think there’s an artist inside who can develop nicely!Suni Lee will be on Dancing with the Stars! She is going to take online classes while doing the show. I was hoping they would offer her DWTS. I hope she gets Val or Sasha.
The 18-year-old Olympic gold medalist from St. Paul will take online classes from Auburn University while participating on the Los Angeles-based show.www.startribune.com
