2013 Beam Finals + Turns

Honestly could see Kocian being the alt.
Here is my team (last three used in TF)

VT: Desch, Baumann, Ross, Skinner, Biles
UB: Desch, Baumann, Biles, Locklear, Ross
BB: Skinner, Locklear, Baumann, Biles, Ross
FX: Desch, Baumann, Ross, Skinner, Biles

This lineup to me shows just how interchangeable Kocian and Locklear are. And if Kocian is really back on all four events she could do floor instead of Desch.

Realistically Locklear and Kocian will not score that differently where it would affect the TF results.

I feel everyone is writing off Desch already but unless Marta is planning on Kocian doing AA then Desch fills a qualifying void.

I am interested to see who the alternate will end up being.

Also Skinner could replace Desch on UB and also do the AA which is probably more realistic than Desch competing three events in quals.

2013 Floor Finals + Turns

Love a nice looking L turn on beam

decencybedamned:

We can make our QF and TF lineups all we want but the fact remains that in the past 13 years Marta has used six athletes in TF exactly once. After the US team is chosen, the most interesting thing to me will be finding out who gets benched—if anyone.

Was this in 2010?
VT: Caquatto, Raisman, Sacramone
UB: Caquatto, Sloan, Bross
BB: Raisman, Bross, Sacramone
FX: Raisman, Bross, Larson :(

Sometimes I feel like nothing is good enough for tumblr. Disney portrays a strong female character. It’s not good enough because she’s white. Google does something for Elimination of Violence Against Women day. It’s not good enough because it’s not smacked in your face. You have to cherish the little victories, folks. The cup isn’t always half empty.

FINALLY SOMEONE FUCKING SAYS IT 

FUCKING FINALLY
