for some reason I still want Jordan to go to Paris

She should go to Paris! Using highest scores, the only team that scores better is the one that includes a healthy Kaliya Lincoln. I think she’s in a great position to peak at Trials, and if she delivers on the routines the team would use her on, there’s no reason they shouldn’t take her. I think the keys will be a solid all-around performance, including outscoring Jade and Kayla on bars, plus Jade on floor and/or Kayla on beam.

Jordan needs to go simply bc she is such a good support system for Simone. If it’s close btwn Jordan and Kayla, Jade and Leanne the tie break should go to Jordan for the Simone factor.

What leaps would you give Jordan in her floor routine for best execution/credit

How is Konnor? I know she’s out, but was curious what the doctors said. And what did Kaliya do? And what’s Trinity’s status? I know Shilese is resting her shoulder. Are the Juniors now done with their season? And OMG where did Hezly come from, lol? I know she’s young

Can we hear about artistry deductions on floor? Any transparency there?

We picked Trials over Championships. For the price and travel, we can only swing one, and Trials and team selection was preferred for us.

If someone does a dance element for example a switch 1.5 but doesn’t complete the 1.5 turn is the element just downgraded (in this case to a switch full?) or is that a deduction as well?
