Press conference? Handout? Pfft. With all the Uber Trauma Drama, I smell Lifetime Movie, one prefaced by their usual "Based on a true story..."
Can anyone remember the last time that it wasn't a foregone conclusion who was going to be named for the Olympics team after Nationals? Now we have two spots up for grabs in Ladies and Pairs. Insane.
When trying to picture what this upcoming announcement is going to look like, I picture a letter with the USFSA statement on who the Olympic Team is going to be, in a closed envelope, laying on a chair in an empty Press Conference room.
No one to announce their decision, they'll tweet the journalists to go ahead and open the letter by themselves!
Whatever the decision, it's going to be a bloodbath!
Anyone else wanting to puke?
If Ashley is selected I think that Marai has a good chance
to be bumped. I can't see them leaving the Silver medalist off the team.
Welcome, Sini. Post often, post long!
Gymnastics - a spot is not guaranteed. There's a brutal Karoyli camp process where Marta decides the team all by herself. Hope skating doesn't ever go this way but I do believe we need to send the strongest team, especially now that there is a team competition. I guess it comes down to how "strongest" is defined.

Can you imagine how nervous the skaters are in this moment? I don't want to be in their position, nor do I want to decide who to leave at home...
