    The American athletes have been announced!!

    The Men will be,
    Jake Dalton
    Danell Leyva

    The Women will be,
    Kyla Ross
    Elizabeth Price

    I think these are very good choices. Can't wait to see Kyla back in action and Ebee has already proved she has what it takes!!

    Oh, cool! I haven't gotten to see much of Ebee, and I lovelovelove Kyla!
    The men are good choices as well, I know that much! But other than that, I don't follow MAG much.

    I read that Ebee withdrew due to injury. I was looking forward to seeing her. Such a powerful, engaging gymnast (from what I've seen on TV!)

    Anyone know who her replacement is?

    Hmm, I hadn't heard that!! Very disappointing. Wonder what her injury is??

    I also haven't heard who her replacement will be.

    ------

    Just read up on it. She has a strained hip muscle and USA Gym hasn't named a replacement yet.

    Not American, but Iordache of Romania has also withdrawn for unknown reasons. They will name a replacement for Ebee after the training camp in February.

    Where is Sarah Finnigan? She was an alternate for the Olympics too and I never hear anyone mention her name to compete at an event like this. Is she still training?

    Does anyone have a sense of how long this will be? I have tickets for my daughter and I, but it starts about half an hour before her practice ends. I am debating pulling her early. Any thoughts?

    wait, how many gymnasts total will there be? (approx.) it sounds like there are only 4, but i think there should be way more!

    sorry, i've never been to this!

    There are 8 women and 8 men, 2 of each from US. You can find the list on the USA Gymnastics website.

    I don't think they have announced who is replacing Elizabeth Price yet, supposed to announce it today.

    Guessing it will be 2-3 hours long. It's being televised on NBC on Saturday!

    Kyla Ross dropped out because of a bruised heel.
