Of all the US ladies/women/girls, Alysa seems to be the least affected by nerves in competition. Sometimes this changes as people age, I dunno why-but thus far she seems to thrive on the pressure and actually enjoy competing.why not? if she wants to go to the Olympics she needs to make a name for herself internationally as a senior. she has to prove she can hold it together under pressure and be reliable on a bigger stage than she's experienced.
IMO if not Alysa, then Amber. she's another that has proving to do if she wants to be on the team.
you want to go to the Olympics, then earn that 3rd spot and show you're not here to play.
