Chelsie Memmel also injured her upper back on floor. Even Bela was working on her massaging her back etc. She didn't vault and the blog hasn't reported on her bar routine yet although did note she was stretching and looked to be attempting bars. Apparently Sloan is having a really good meet after 2 events.
ahhh I really want Chellsie to go! I hope her back gets better! I've been cheering her on since her comeback... I'll have to keep checking back on the nbc olympic website for more. Feel bad for Shalya too, I don't think she would've made it either, with her injuries..
Haha! I read the newest issue of Time during the wait. I'm glad Chellsie could compete beam! Reading all the commentary just makes me want to know the team even more, though, at that will not come until tomorrow night! ugh -agony
This is devastating for Shayla, I feel terrible for her. I think Chellsie will be fine, she would be in Beijing regardless though, unless she was in a walking cast or something. I am incredibly happy for Bridget as well & Mattie with the # 2 floor score. Great job to the girls and hopefully tomorrows 2 events go really well! I am betting on seeing a lot of bar routines!
Poor Shayla !!!! I can't imagine getting that close to your dream and breaking a leg like that. Now she will never know whether she would have made it or not. I still can't decide who I think should get the final spots.
I REALLY wanted Mattie Larson to become an alternate...but i guess the "trend" is just to wait until the next Olympics!!! I think that the girls who do come back stronger than ever and they are more prepared.
