I was going down memory lane on and watching some 1990s gymnastics…it’s the year I fell in love with the sport, and in particular, Brandy Johnson. She did so well at the World Cup, that I looked her up on wikipedia and read that she was originally asked to be an alternate for the Goodwill Games. Apparently, she declined, and then declined again when Erica Stokes withdrew. Brandy contended that Karoyli hid Erica’s injuries. Were there trials for the team? Brandy finished 3rd at Nationals and won 2 events, and she was clearly a better gymnast than Erica or Amy Scherr. Brandy also competed and won the 1990 US Olympic Festival. She added difficulty on beam and floor for the 1990 World Cup. Does anyone remember how the Goodwill Games was chosen? I found one article and it’s behind a pay wall. Just curious.
