The U.S. Olympic Gymnastics Trials are less than two weeks away and the anticipation is killing us. OK that’s a stretch, however with the final decision as to who gets to represent America at the London 2012 Olympics, time is running short for some very talented gymnasts.
While the top three of five spots are probably a lock for both the men and women, the final two are still available and frankly, it’s anyone’s game. San Jose is ready and June 28 - July 1 will be the weekend hopes and dreams may be realized or utterly dashed.
One fact remains – both the men and women's teams need more than one trick pony athletes. Gone are the days of single event specialists at the Olympic Games. Now every routine matters and with gold at stake, every gymnast must pull his/her weight in a collective team effort.
Who will join John Orozco, Danell Leyva, Sam Mikulak, Jordyn Wieber, Gabby Douglas and Aly Raisman in July?
It won't be easy, but here is who we hope makes the cut.
