USA National Team Coordinator Martha Karolyi explains her selection of the 2011 USA Women's World Championships team. She and the selection committee picked the team last night at the conclusion of 2 selection camps at the Karolyi Ranch. The 7 girls who will travel to Tokyo for the 2011 World Championships are: Alicia Sacramone, Jordyn Wieber, Alexandra Raisman, Anna Li, McKayla Maroney, Gabrielle Douglas, and Sabrina Vega. Shawn Johnson has been named the non-traveling alternate and also selected to the 2011 Pan American Games which will take place in Mexico the week after World Championships.
Karolyi talks about the strategy in her team selection, the the depth of the US across each event, the plan for uneven bars, and why she left former World Champions Shawn Johnson, Chellsie Memmel and Bridget Sloan off the 2011 team.
Finally loaded. good insights from Marta. That Memmel shoulder was more of a big deal than some people tried to play it off and Marta was right to worry about it at Nats.
Not sure if it is the ads or the facebook or what, but something is glitching the system that used to run so well. :-(
Anne, something about the site now is making videos not come up. Or take a looooong time. Can not even get the video in the window.
