YEAH YEAH I KNOW, I KNOW. Its been like 24 hours, but do you know what time it was in Ireland when this was live? silly o’clock. THATS WHAT TIME IT WAS.
So, I just finished watching, and this it what I have to say.
FUCK YEAH GABBY DOUGLAS.
She hit. she damn hit, she had a couple wobbles. but she stayed on.
Shes tied for for first place with Jordyn Wieber after night one. This is American Cup Revenge.
I’ve been thinking alot about who’s going to make the team, and this is what I came up with:
1: Jordyn Wieber I don’t even have to explain this.
2. Aly Raisman her beam, vault and floor are all valuable to the USA.
3. Gabby Douglas because shes proven herself on all four events but mostly because of her bars.
4. Mckayla Maroney Nationals have proven how much better her amanar can score compared to other USA girls. that 3-4 tenths is very important. plus, her floor is looking better!
That leaves one more member of the team, I’m pretty sure this person is going to have to have a good bar routine and possibly a good beam/floor. I’m guessing Martha will either kick Bars in the butt and aim for higher scores on floor and beam instead (Sarah Finnegan) or focus on bars (which with those four girls is pretty weak, apart from Gabby) If they choose to make this forth person a bar worker I’d narrow it down to:
Nastia – we haven’t seen a good routine at all from competiton but her training videos are awesome and she could be the 3rd beam worker for team finals (Jordyn, Aly, Nastia)
Rebecca – Rebecca is pretty much on the same boat as Nastia, although her beam is not up to any sort of Olympic level. either she takes the patterson out, or she gets out.
Bridget – Bridget surprised everyone by having a pretty good bar routine last night, although her beam wasn’t up to scratch. And what this team needs is a 3rd beam worker and 3rd bar worker.
Kyla – Kyla fits this perfectly. Her bars are clean and high scoring and beam is a great event for her. out of the 4 girls I listed here, I think Kyla is the most likely.
But, the competition is not over yet.
One more day and we will find out our national champion and everything could change.
