The Women’s U.S. Olympic Gymnastics’ Team will be Gabby Douglas, Jordyn Wieber, Aly Raisman, McKayla Maroney and Kyla Ross. Sarah Finnegan, Anna Li and Elizabeth Price will be alternates. Both Kyla Ross and Anna Li are Asian American! Congrats to all!
Ross posted the second-highest score on uneven bars and finished tied for first with Douglas.
Ross’ 15.65 score on uneven bars propelled her onto the team, which had only one competitor – Douglas – performing consistently well in the event. Ross called it “an honor” to go to London.
Last Summer Olympics, in Beijing, Asian American Ivana Hong, was an alternate. Now she is a student at Stanford.
