Elizabeth Price: Though it wasn't enough to earn her a spot in the starting five, Elizabeth Price remains the surprise performer of this meet.
Price, who has little international experience to speak of, moved into fourth position after Day 1 and never relinquished that spot, finishing just behind the lock-safe trio of Gabby Douglas, Jordyn Wieber and Aly Raisman.
She was likely done in by her lack of a high-scoring specialty apparatus. Just 16, she'll be a team alternate and should have another crack at making the team in Rio 2016.
Alicia Sacramone: It was an admirable effort from the veteran, but in the end Alicia Sacramone simply wasn't what Team USA needed.
She was as good as she could have been on vault and balance beam (her two specialty events), but the Americans have ample firepower in those areas. The committee clearly decided that McKayla Maroney's singular greatness on vault was preferable to Sacramone's above-average abilities on vault and beam.
Anna Li: There was some chatter that 23-year-old Anna Li could crack the team as an uneven bars specialist, considering America's weakness on that apparatus, but her overall deficiencies proved too pronounced to ignore.
