US Announce 2012 Olympic Women Gymnastic’s Team
The 2012 Summer Olympics in London are kicking off later on this month (July 26) and we are just now meeting the USA teams. Case in point, they just confirmed the women gymnastics team. All 5 women (or should we say girls?) are under the age of 18. The girls are hoping to bring home the gold team medal, last won by the US in during the 1996 Olympics. Entertainment Tonight was able to catch up with Kyla Ross, Jordyn Wieber, Aly Raisman, Gabby Douglas and McKayla Maroney. You will find the video of the team down below at the bottom of this post. Cambio also shared a few facts of these lucky girls, which are the following.
Gabby: She won the national title on the bars in 2012.
Jordyn: She was the 2011 US and World All-Around champion.
McKayla: She was the 2011 World Vault champion.
Aly: She took home bronze medals in 2010, 2011, and 2012 in All-Around during the US Nationals.
Kyla: She was the 2009 and 2010 US Junior champ, and the silver medalist in 2011.
It sounds like each one of them have an amazing record. I have no worries that they won’t do well. I wish them all of the luck in the world. They seem like they know what they want and they will make no bones about getting it. I know a lot of people love watching the gymnastics competition during the Olympics and I will admit that I love it just as much. But I always preferred the Winter Olympics for the ice skating. That is much more my personal favorite. However, I do plan on trying to catch some of the gymnastics to see how the girls do.
Do you think these girls can take home the team medal? I don’t see why not. Each one has an impressive history and I am sure that can work in their benefit. Plus with their age they might have a slight advantage over others. However, that doesn’t mean older gymnast cannot win! Some of our best ones were in their 20s. But I do feel like these ages keep them more competitive with the world around them that they are competing against.
