Anyone with money to wager would pick CHN, JAP, RUS (not necessarily in that order) as the likely teams to qualify for the Tokyo Olympics from Worlds.
After listening to an interview with new Oklahoma assistant coach Chris Brooks (and others), I’m even more convinced USA could upset. If they hit. … If they hit H Bar.
The Americans will have lower difficulty potential but could finish top 3 by hitting more routines. The guys all have NCAA team experience and might benefit from past meets where they had to hit no matter what. They are very familiar with that pressure.
the top 3 qualification is from prelims, not the Team final.
Update – Joel Gagnon corrected this.
Top 3 from the 2018 Worlds team final will qualify to Tokyo.
