I’m going out of town tomorrow morning and will miss all the coverage of Day 2 for the US Women’s Olympic Trials.   I’ll be on a camping road trip so I likely won’t know anything until the first of July.   So based on what I saw tonight from Day 1 (and from Nationals), here’s who is on my team…

  • Shawn Johnson
  • Nastia Liukin
  • Chellsie Memmel
  • Alicia Sacramone
  • Samantha Peszek
  • Bridget Sloan

Ivana Hong, Shayla Worley, Jana Bieger & Mattie Larson are all legit contenders as well.    With the team scenario I listed above, I think that Bridget would be used on Bars only and if that is the case, she can bring in the highest score there (compared to Hong, Worley, Bieger & Larson).    The rest of the events would look as follows…
