This is supposed to be happening tomorrow, and while the women have had to be delayed due to Becky’s bereavement, afaik the men will still be announced as planned. We did have some MAG discussion in the GB WAG thread, but I think it got lost in there.
Here are the scores from the various selection events. Obviously we all saw Euros too, but I don’t think anything that happened there was particularly significant.
Most of us seemed to think the obvious team is Whitlock, Fraser, Hall and Regini-Moran. They’re not leaving Max at home because GB simply aren’t in a position to omit someone who’s likely to medal if they hit and may well win gold. That means the other three have to do a lot of heavy lifting on the other events, you need AAers. Joe is a world champion and was 8th AA in 2019 and the other two have been looking the strongest lately. Can’t see any room for Courtney here, but they’ll need him for worlds.
I should also mention that it is now traditional for disappointed GB MAG to take to social media to voice their displeasure, so worth keeping our communal eyes on there. The British have been world leading when it comes to catfights on twitter, and while the women have taken the lead in recent weeks, the men have the pedigree. Beefing isn’t necessarily limited to those competing either: we saw Louis Smith throw in a sly dig at Max Whitlock a full two years after his own last competitive outing, so I think we can legitimately have high hopes for something undignified.
