About a week ago I sat here and thought I came up with the perfect Olympic team. Then the other day I realized that Mckayla Maroney wasn’t on it.
I honestly don’t see a team that doesn’t have that Amanar on it.
So I did some more thinking tonight realizing that my thinking Nastia would fit perfectly with Aly for a spot ( in Marta’s mind) was……
Then I realized last night she actually fits better with Mckayla.
Vault-floor vs beam/bars.
Then I thought again how Alicia Sacramone better just retire right now. A vault and beam specialist has no shot at this team. Someone would have to be good at bars and floor to fit with her. Then the scary words Gabby Douglas came to mind and I screamed really loudly inside. Her floor is not strong enough for that.
No matter what team I come up with I can find no logical reason to take Nastia even if she gets her UB routine in shape.
Jordyn, Kyla, Aly, Rebecca and Nastia leaves Mckayla off the team.
I know a lot of people think Aly has no shot at this team and I know Marta will pick Nastia regardless of how she competes at Trials and Nationals.
Would Marta have the gall to screw Kyla Ross of a spot on this team in favor of Nastia.
All Aly ever does is hit. If she hits at Nationals and Trials will Marta dare leave her at home?
I know this is all just thinking out loud.
What do you think? I need help here. Am I too set in stone having Aly on this team?
Maybe I should start trying to come up with teams leaving Aly at home.
