World Team Predictions?

Argh this is so hard considering all the injuries the USA gymnasts have had lately. But… I think that it will be…

Simone Biles, Kyla Ross, McKayla Skinner, Ashton Locklear, Alyssa Baumann, Madison Kocian and Amelia Hundley and Brenna Dowell as alternates. I just don’t see Brenna improving her form. Also I would love to put Amelia on the team as I loved her as a junior but due to her inexperience and rocky start to her senior career I think that if she is named on the team it will be only as an alternate. 

VAULT: Skinner, Ross, Biles 

BARS: Ross, Kocian, Locklear 
(I actually get so excited by USA’s bars now. Can’t believe it used to be their weakest event!)

BEAM: Baumann, Biles, Ross

FLOOR: Biles, Ross, Baumann/Skinner

I personally don’t really enjoy Skinner’s gymnastics due to her low execution but I think she has proved her consistency so far this year. I can’t wait to see Ross and Biles as per usual. I love how Ashton is dominating bars and was relatively unknown. I also am excited by Alyssa and Madison and hope they continue to grow especially through this international experience.
