I do like the way Team USA announced each of the 5 official team members on Twitter.
Gabby did not have a particularly good trials. Falls on Beam each day after parting ways with her Beam coach Kittia Carpenter immediately before the competition.
It could be that USA did not want to face the media barrage if Gabby was not selected to the A-team. She’ll have to prove she deserves the spot every single day at Camp.
“I feel like if we put Gabby in regimented training, with daily planning and daily assignments, we will see improvement – just like we did last year,” Karolyi said Sunday night after the Olympic team was announced.
“We have nine days of training camp, which is long, and we really put big importance on this training camp.”
Translation: That trip to Karolyi’s ranch next week is not going to be a vacation….
