USA's Olympic Team!

Your USA Team:

1. Shawn Johnson
2. Nastia Liukin
3. Chellsie Memmel
4. Samantha Peszek
5. Alicia Sacramone
6. Bridget Sloan!!!

Alternates:

1. Jana Bieger
2. Ivana Hong
3. Corrie Lothrop


My thoughts: I think that this is going to be a really strong team! I'm so happy to see Bridget snag that sixth spot. I'm also super happy for Chellsie and Alicia for sticking around. They finally made it! :D I think that Jana and Ivana are where they should be. It's a simple fact that we can't risk having someone fold into the pressure there, and that's exactly what happened here. And Corrie Lothrop... never really expected her to even get alternate, did we? I was surprised, but she did have a really good meet. I wonder if she'll try for 2012?

Well... what are your thoughts?

I don't hate her at all, I just thought (and still think) that she just wasn't right for the team. If you really think about it, we would have needed her for bars. And during the camp, she fell not once, but twice on bars. If you were put in Marta's position, would you want to take the risk of that happening at the Olympics? I totally agree with you, she's a great gymnast and it's AWESOME to see something different for once! She just wasn't the right fit for this team.
