    Wow, thanks for informing us of the competitions coming up! I had no idea that the big names were competing in anything after worlds! I can’t wait for some of the performances to be up on youtube 🙂

      I’m looking forward to the videos as well. I kind of wish the Americans would actually go to some of these competitions. World cups would be great for B-Team gymnasts like Hunter, Jetter and Whitcomb. The level of competition at a lot of them isn’t great, but it would give them a chance to actually compete internationally and probably get some decent results. I suppose experience for this years B-Team isn’t a top priority since they likely won’t even make the national team with juniors coming up next year, but it couldn’t hurt. Russia is sending Irina Sazonova to the DTB Cup, and she has no chance at 2011 or 2012 unless more the half of the national team is injured.
      Something that puzzles me is Lauren Mitchell listed on vault. I didn’t think she had two vaults. If she did, she should have preformed them at commonwealths because they would have almost certainly won her another medal if her second vault is halfway decent.
