Individual Spot Question
Hello fellow Gymnerds! I was thinking about the individual spot today after reading an article from ESPN about how MyKayla and Jade shouldn't have been on the same team because of the two per country rule. I began to think that there was maybe strategy (reasonable, maybe not) to not putting Riley or Kara as individuals.
Do you think it could be that they wanted to preserve Simone's reputation and chances of at least 4 medals? Had they put Riley on the squad as an individual, it is unlikely that Simone would have made bars finals if both Riley and Suni were there. At this point, it is really the only thing I can think of.
