Where did I say that these athletes will be in Paris?
I said “heading toward Paris” meaning 2022 and 2023 Worlds. Every quad there is a mid-quad senior group that don’t end up going to the following Olympics but do compete at Pan Ams and Worlds.
This group has NCAA plans so who knows if they will even try for Paris.
2009 Hong, Bross, Williams, Sloan all participated at Worlds
2010 Bross, Sloan, Larson, and Caquatto were there and in 2011 not on the World team and of course didn’t make it to London
2013 Maroney and Ross went to Worlds with Biles.
2014 Maroney was done. Ross went to Worlds along Baumann, Skinner, and Locklear none of these 4 made it to 2015 (Skinner as alternate) and didn’t make Rio (Skinner and Locklear as alternates)
2017 Hurd, Locklear, Smith, Carey went to Worlds. Only Carey would make another Worlds team and head to the Olympics, but she also made her way there as a specialist, this route won’t be available this cycle. Even if you look at 2018 Eaker, McCusker, Hurd were a part of that team but never made it to Tokyo.
However, I am hearing over various social media that the US program is dead without Biles. Without her they are no longer going to dominate by 10 or more points. But the program is certainly not the way of Romania. They will still be challenging for team medals (even gold) and also event medals. The mid quad players like Blakely, DiCello, McClain etc may not be around for Paris but I can see these three being in the mix for 2022 Worlds.
