Interesting that Yul is competing here and Swiss Cup but Fatta just Swiss Cup.
IMO she would have a wonderful opportunity to place in the top 3 AA here, given they can drop one event completely.

Yul was already in Europe competing in Bundesliga so maybe it was a travel issue for Fatta? Or perhaps the WAG side was already full up with spots. Not sure how the invites for this meet work.

Maybe. But Ciena Alipio did Arthur Gander last year so I just curious why no one this year. Especially since Sacramone wants all NT members to get international assignments.
Granted Fatta has had a few already. (Pan Ams alternate, Szombathely Cup)


Kazuma Kaya and Chiaki Hatakeda

It’s possible that some US gymnasts didn’t want to do the Arthur Gander Memorial because it’s so close to Thanksgiving. Whereas there is plenty of time to celebrate Thanksgiving and still go to the Swiss Cup.

Apparently today is also her birthday! She turned 18 today.

Everyone’s individual event scores are listed on the results page linked.

Alice D’Amato and Lorenzo Minh Casali won the “Audience Award.” Apparently there is voting in the arena for who has the most spectacular performance during the meet.
