Oh what a Trials!! Day 1 left me wondering what was up with the US women on Bars and Beam and Day 2 was such a nailbiter full of ups and downs it was amazing!
Congratulations to the 2012 Women’s Olympic Gymnastics Team:
- Gabrielle “Gabby” Douglas
- Jordyn Wieber
- McKayla Maroney
- Alexandra “Aly” Raisman
- Kyla Ross
as well as alternates Elizabeth Price, Anna Li, and Sarah Finnegan.
As much as it was heartbreaking to see Nastia Liukin fall on bars and really not have the Trials experience she hoped for, it was almost more heartbreaking to see Alicia Sacramone be consistent, solid and determined and not even be named an alternate.
It will be interesting to see all the post Trials interviews and see if the media attention moves off Wieber and onto Douglas – and how they handle it.
CONGRATULATIONS again to all the girls who competed this weekend at Trials.
