They havent decided who will do AA yet. Well, I take that back. I'm sure they have but it hasnt been released, the lineup is due in tomorrow.

I can promise you that Patterson will do AA, I would also bet that Schwikert and Kupets could do AA as well. Kupets has been ill though and is just getting back to training, had a little rough time of it today in podium training.

I am pretty sure that Vise will only do bars and beam, I know for a fact Hatch will do vault and floor, I doubt she does bars or beam but she is capable on either if she has been consistent since Nationals. Memmel is capable of AA, but I expect to see her on 2-3 events.

I am so excited for the potential of the US team. I just hope the illness, recent injuries and recent line up changes don't get the girls hopes down. They can still pull this off, but will have to fight tough with Romania and China and Russia.

The AA will be very exciting as well, Patterson can win the whole thing and I think she will if she hits all her routines.

Good luck USA!

I know in Britain they plan to show coverage on Eurosport from Thursday or Friday next week, don't exactly know how much, so it will probably be the same for Europe.

I can't wait, I really think the USA are the favourites for the womens team, even with Ashley out, also looking for the Chinese to do well

Muguruza Kerber
Safarova Kvitova
Jankovic Venus

Annia Hatch has had to pull out due to a broken knee I can't believe it, I am so sorry for her. I just hope now it doesn't affect her career/end her chances at Athens. Good luck Annia!

Do you guys think as the Olympics get closer that some of the girls from the 2000 US team will start to come back?? Like in Sydeny when Shannen and Dominque came back less than a year before the Olympics.
