This and That
Workout Wednesday with CGA on bars. It is amazing that MLT is as anal as ever, yet she lacks a bars girl at this time. Lexie is improving, but she doesn't have the open shoulder angle of Beckerman, Powell, Sapunar or even Priess. Kayla Williams may very well look much improved between the bar coaching at CGA and Alabama.
Chellsie Memmel didn't do bars today and fell on beam at camp. Unless she can pull a miracle out of her ass in two weeks, she is likely to be left off the World Team. Chellsie hasn't shown a bar routine at the level that the selection committee is looking for and they're going to go with Raisman's stability on vault, beam and floor. Amanda Jetter isn't at this camp. Bridget Sloan has been doing more than she showed in training at Nationals.
