Hats off to gymnasts at the US Champs. On paper the top 5 gymnasts scores look like World beaters. With that many gymnasts scoring 90+ they surely should be pushing for Olympic Gold.
Does anybody else find this a little odd? We all know that National Championships, especially just before the Olympics, will have slightly elevated scores but 5 gymnasts scoring above 90. Really? That didn’t even happen at the 2012 Japanese Championships. And for Orozco 93.05 and Leyva 92.95 to hit such high scores I’m amazed. Don’t get me wrong, i am a big fan of both of these guys and would love for them to be pushing Kohei but i can’t help but think that if he competed at the Visas he would have walked away with a 95+.
One thing that is a definite is that this Team final with the 3 – 3 format is probably going to be one of the most exciting we have seen for a long time with Japan, China and now USA fighting for the gold and the outsiders pushing for a bronze its certainly one not to miss!
