I think the women will be: Shawn Johnson, Nastia Liunkin, Alicia Sacramone, Chelsie (sp?) Memmel (if she's healthy enough), Shayla Worley, and Sam Peszek; with Bridget Sloan, Ivana Hong, and Jana Bieger as possible alternates.

It's kind of funy because there are so many great girls out there, and the top qualifiers are pretty obvious (like the ones on EVERYONE'S lists). I'll take the obvious Shawn, Nastia, and Alicia, plus add Shayla, Sam (love her so much), Ivana(yes, I'm biased and also a sucker for german giants), and as alternates Darlene Hill and Chellsi Memmel. I would love to see Chellsie and/or Darlene compete, but I'm just not sure.

As far as the guys go I agree completely with gymnasticsbabie's list.

Pama seems to have set her eyes on college for now.....

I have no idea about a men`s team - I am not all that much interested in the men.

But for the girls I go with:

- Nastia Liukin
- Shawn Johnson
- Alicia Sacramone
- Jana Bieger

And the last spots idk....Peszek, Sloan I guess.

I actually hope Durante isn't on the olympic team. His floor routine is so wimpy. (Artemev's is too, but his pommel horse routine alone is enough to make up for any other shortcommings)

Aww i love David Durante!! he has good highbar though.. so its kind of like nastia, her vault is so "wimpy" but her bars is outstanding. and yes i agree with you, i think they need artemev for his pommel horse. and you can't deny that he is such a beautiful gymnast to watch.
