But Jade will be competing as an individual, so can't compete in team final to be counted towards the team score. Now that Simone has stepped up her bar game so much, the USA's weakness is no longer UB. Skinner could fill the spot that McCallum filled at last years World's, capable of a solid AA in qualification, then doing vt and fx in team final. She If she really does have 2016 level on those two events, she would easily be in mix of top 3 of USA on those two events, especially without Jade in the mix.Her consistency is incredible no doubt. But wasn’t her form in elite lacking, particularly on bars and beam? I’ve heard many people say that it has improved since college, but can she keep the better form with higher difficulty? If Jade locks up a nomitive spot and Simone stays healthy, I think it’s a long shot. There are better bar and beam workers for the US than MyKayla.
