This evening, USA Gymnastics announced the U.S. team that will be sent to World Championships in Nanning, China this October.
The US World Championship Team has been named! What do you think of the choices?
aimee: simone im leaving the gym for FIVE minutes pls dont do anything crazy
simone: … *does standing double backs* *practices pommel horse routines* *does splits on trees* *throws triple twisting double backs onto concrete* *presses the red button in the white house* *falls down 30 flights of stairs* *does a TTY while taking a selfie mid flight* *smashes the patriarchy* *isolates the higgs boson*
Right now just that on day two they only had to do two events and basically everyone but Skinner/Biles did UB/BB. Kyla, Simone, and Mykayla are all locked in as actual team members but they’re having a tough time deciding between Ashton, Madison K, Brenna, and Alyssa for the next three spots and alternate. So the team I put in my post is likely right…I’m betting they’ll wait until podium training to decide for real.
finally i have a reason to use this picture
Before it all went wrong and I fell doing a simple split jump. This is when mom says ”A routine isn’t over when you’re done with the hard part”
