It is fairly entertaining though. Gotta admit.
Nastia Trinket ready commentate the Hunger Games battle that is the 4th place team member selection.
Have we done a poll? maybe we should do a fast poll before competition starts?
So is it NBCSN or Olympic Channel at 8pm?
I’m calling Skinner now. I said Grace earlier but I just have a feeling.
And I will enjoy watching twitter implode if it does happen.
It needs to have the option of who ever places 4th because that would be my vote
Its NBC at 8:00 pm EDT
Track trials are delayed for extreme heat, so nbc will start at 8 eastern
I have changed my mind so often that it barely matters what I think at this point. But I will actually be happy with Skinner, Di Cello, Wong or Grace. Not in that order.
I still think McCallum and if not her, DiCello.
I actually don’t really mind who makes it. I have no preference or objection to Skinner really. Let the chips fall where they may.
I am with you.
Okay, Gymfan93, I have to ask if you’re the user who used to run the predictions game on Intlgymnast
No, not me!
I don’t want Skinner on the team, but I’m not going to complain if it happens because I’m so resigned to it happening.
McCallum and DiCello will vault in the first rotation tonight while Skinner vaults in the fourth. This will affect AA placings amongst the three of them throughout the night since VT scores higher than every other event.
I’m still torn between McCallum and DiCello. Grace is a hair stronger on vault, but it’s absurdly easy to negate that with landings (as happened for her in 2019). Kayla is getting super consistent high scores on floor (less than .1 between her best and worst scores), but Grace has the top number there.
Never been a huge fan of Grace’s but I think she has smoothed out a lot of her rougher edges.
And jeez, I can’t imagine being a runner trying to deal with those temps for Olympic Trials. It’s so foreign to think about the weather issues faced in sports like track and skiing, since our score is so tightly controlled.
I really want the Skinner drama to continue, so although it would be awful for all our eyes, SKINNER FOR THE FOURTH!!
In all seriousness, I think it will be Grace. I can’t see Skinner repeating those scores again tonight. She’s gonna fall on beam.
If anyone wants to chat live (in the judges spreadsheet) just press the “chat” icon in the Google Sheet:
Oh God, they said there are 21,000 in the audience, the most at a Trials ever. During a pandemic.
