Catty Comments here to post late-breaking news - Marta Inc. (aka USAG) has named the following 7 gymnasts to the traveling team to Rotterdam. The alternate will be named in Rotterdam. They are:
In light of the news reported earlier that Sloan finished last in the AA at camp, I'm surprised they took her instead of Hunter. Suspicion is that if Sloan is not healthy and/or hitting well in podium training, the lovely & consistent Chelsea Davis will be in prelims and Sloan will be in the stands, or moving mats, or somewhere she can watch, stew, and ponder 2011.
The surprise is Kytra Hunter not traveling - she has the best tumbling in the world and a dty so huge she's rumored to have an Amanar, but relatively low SVs and bars that shouldn't be on the podium in prelims have apparently kept her off the team.
As always, full comments from AJ will follow.
