She is last on floor in her last rotation, so I imagine if she really needs the points then she will, if she doesn't need it, then she won't.

Yes, I too am very excited about tonight. Need a nap soon.

I am also very excited. I however, skipped out of watching men's AA live because I fell asleep and am now well-rested for the women.

I think Shawn took it out because she was struggling with it a bit in podium training and the events leading up to actual competition. It costs her a few tenths A score, but probably saved her a little in execution if she was having a problem with it.

She may have lost in her A score due to under rotated leaps, this would downgrade them in the A score, not just reflected in the B score.
