Morgan Hurd to Worlds

Everyone is excited the fan favourite ended up being selected as second AA for Montreal. Many are disappointed for those not chosen this time, especially for Jordan Chiles the alternate, who will not travel to Montreal.

  1. I’m not terribly fond of this description/title for the post. Saying that “everybody is happy” isn’t true and it sends the message to Jordan Chiles that she is neither a fan favourite or liked well enough. Morgan is a great gymnast but has shown no ability so far to compete at a major meet.


    1. Good points, Sean. I’ve changed the wording of the post to be more inclusive of those superstars not chosen.

      The alternate role is difficult. Jordan will need to be ready right up until the last moment. I’m sorry she couldn’t be training in Montreal.
