Where to start?
For an organization that already has little trust with membership, communication could not have been much worse at the (otherwise excellent) Men’s Winter Cup in Las Vegas.
Now Tuesday morning and I’m still not 100% sure what happened.
It seems the USA MPC had not documented their World Cup selection system in advance of Winter Cup.
Why, you might ask.
Yet USAG had to earlier put forward nominative entrees for the 4 AA World Cups either Sam or Yul were assigned to all four.
Not many — including Yul’s Mom — knew they were only nominative.
Now — after the Winter Cup — MPC is considering replacing Yul for some of his nominative assignments.
It’s a mess. More self-inflicted wounds for USA Gymnastics.
