[QUOTE=Tighe Crovetti;1250077]I have it on good info she had some kind of (minor) injury holding her back on 15.1a.[/QUOTE]
She publicly said she is battling an injury and even posted a pic of herself on Instagram in a hospital gown.

I hope she can recover, not having her in the Games last year was tough. I enjoy watching her compete and she seems to have a great mindset/personality. We will see! If the spots were guaranteed there wouldn't be an Open or Regional (or whatever they're calling it this year!)

Even if strength is her weakness, eg oly lifts, is there really that much one can do in less than a year about it? My guess is no and several years are needed.

Lets not forget....SHE WON THE GAMES! I mean, she's not perfect, and yes she had a bad day last year at the Regionals, but we're talking about her like she's some Games fringe athlete. If she can recover from her injuries, she'll give Camille, Letendre, Bridgers, and the rest a good run for their money.

I dont get the relevance of her pic in this thread lol

I don't think upper body is lacking strength at least by evidenced in her bench video, she was the only one in her team who didn't cheat and she did pretty good.

but strength and oly stuff doesn't seem to be her forte


On another note, saw Matt Chan's name on leaderboard is he going team? Masters? Men's individual?

Matt Chan may be just doing the individual Open again. He ****ed himself up pretty bad last year and nearly lost his leg if memory serves.

Could have died if he had broke the skin by his groin.
