“2020 is probably the first olympics where all top gymnasts will be aiming for silver (except 1)”

“To predict what the Tokyo team will be for …

“To predict what the Tokyo team will be for USA feels impossible (this isn’t meant to brag) there’s just so much talent that anybody who just made the national team has a realllly strong chance. Like no one is safe (ok maybe Simone) but I wouldn’t even say like Morgan or Riley are locks because it depends on what strengths from what gymnast can make a team that has power for vt and floor but elegance for bb and ub. It’s just mind boggling how completely uncertain it’s been compared to last quads”

“Honestly, if Mai doesn’t win at least 2 medals with the Olympics in her home country I’m going to cry”

“If a gymnast is competing at the olympics as an individual, do her medals still count towards the team’s medal count? (i.e. Jade gets vault silver and floor bronze; do those medals count towards the US medal count for the games)”

“Morgan is going to make the 2020 team because she will be healthy and not overworked due to a strategy called pacing”

“There are more than 4 gymnasts I will be deeply sad about if they don’t make it to Tokyo. … I am guarantied to be deeply sad.”

“I’m honestly just rooting for Grace McCallum for Tokyo just so Sarah Jantzi can be the female coach on the floor instead of Maggie Haney”

“I’ve grown to love Gelya Melnikova more and more over the years and it’s amazing to see how much she’s progressed to being the leading gymnast on the Russian team. All I want is for her to stay healthy, happy and win an individual medal at Tokyo 2020. Gymgods I hope you’re listening!”

“Ahtziri Sandoval won five medals in world cups/american championships last year and I feel really bad that she probably won’t have a good chance to qualify for Tokio…”

“Simone, Riley, and Morgan all appear to be locks for Tokyo, since they’re the best all arounders. But do you think that they will send Grace, Leanne, or maybe Kara for the 4th spot?”
