USA Gymnastics hosted a teleconference call with the United States men's World Championships team and National Team Coordinator Kevin Mazeika. The men talks about their goals and expectations for Tokyo 2011. They finished 4th place in 2010 with a poor showing on pommel horse. This team is much stronger on horse and is well balanced on 6 events. The 2011 Men's World team is made up of:
Danell Leyva, Jonathan Horton, John Orozco, Steven Legendre, Jake Dalton, Alex Naddour, and the alternate is Chris Brooks.
I listened to the version on USAG (seemed longer) and some of my questions were asked). This one is not loading again so cant see if I brain farted or Anne cut content.
Questions they should have asked:1. Compared to the top teams, what events is this team strongest on, what weakest on?2. What is the training of these athletes like in the final weeks before the competition? Do the numbers increase to hone them or decrease to rest them? Do you do a lot of simulated competition?3. (Chris) what is the status of your ankle? What tricks are limited? Is the injury healing and getting better going into competition or is it something where you need to keep putting numbers on it until Worlds are over and then try to finish healing then?4. (Jon) What is the status of your shoulder? Are you back to doing your full rings routine difficulty? Do you have to limit some of your training numbers?5. Keven, will you please give us a little bit of an NFL coaches injury report on the gymnasts? Are there any others limited in their ability to practice?6. Chris, you fell twice on your Dragulescu but seemed to have good height to do the skill. What is the path forward to perfecting that skill?7. For the casual viewer what are a few of the very biggest skills (most difficult tricks) on the team so we can make sure to catch them.8. Where are a few places where we have big hopes for event medals?9. How much time will the team have to socialize and enjoy Japan before or after the meet? Planned activities?10. Steve, youve shown some incredible FX skills, for instance the 2.5 twisting double layoyut. But youve also had to balance consistency with difficulty. How will you approach team and EF in terms of FX routine composition?11. for the college gymnasts, how do your routines for Worlds compare to college? Do you dial up or down the difficulty? Is the scoring similar enough that you can help your team with identical routines in either college or international? Can your body take doing World's class routines every week in college season?
BS answers. They have this rap of saying how they are going for gold, but realistically analysis shows it is very unlikely. They need to be more honest and analytical.
