Any version of that idea would be incredibly awesome, IMO. they could even make it the weekend before the Games so that whoever wins enters the Games already at a disadvantage of not being totally rested, similar to wild cards in other sports.

Also, Lindsey Valenzuela seems to be pretty peeved at how Regionals went down. She's joked on twitter about the judging, or lack there of. She's said she's going to write an article on the weekend, can't wait to see if she vents in there
This would work, but it should be only open to those who have reached the podium sometime over the last four years AND had at least a top 40 worldwide finish in the Regionals this year. And, only one male and one female would advance to the games, which would be held the next week (First event that Monday... in which 1/3 of the field would be eliminated). There would be six workouts over two days.
