It will be interesting to see how these girls do at an international event.

Very good results for an inexperienced team.

I watched it and thought they looked very nice. Kaliya Lincoln has so much potential on floor. Great tumbling, lovely leaps and nice expression and dance potential. Madray Johnson is just lovely to watch. So elegant.

Anyone know what the 1.00 neutral deduction taken from the USA MAG team total was?

I am guessing the gymnasts competed in the incorrect order on an event?

Also, pretty amazing that the WAG bronze medal went to Jamaica.

How nice that everyone placed/won something. I watched the young ladies in person at nationals and Kaliyah Lincoln and Kailin Chio stood out as forces to be reckoned with in the future (Katelyn is dominating, but her gymnastics is quite robotic and I wonder if she will burn out before 2024 with her high difficulty.

Agreed. Jong definitely had more difficulty and less personality. Hopefully that will come with age and confidence.

I’m not a fan of big difficulty at a young age. I would rather see lovely form and expression and perfect basics. Not Jong but some juniors have horrible chucked big skills.

I think the Kaliyah / Kailin / Katelyn trio is going to be great for the U.S., even as I do think the playing field is going to be much more level without Biles (at least next year; who knows if Biles will be back).

I think we’ll at least get 2021 and 2022 Worlds without Biles, so things should be interesting!
