@SpannyTampson: Per GGMB: Pan Ams Bridgey, Shawn Chellsie Bridget Jessie
The Pan Ams team was also announced and, by the looks of it, it is almost as good of a team as the worlds team. There are three Olympians form 2008, those three Olympians are also all World Champions, as well as three newcomers (one of the newcomers, bran die Jay, has committed to compete at UGA next year)! This should be very interesting!
@USAGym: This is it! The women heading to Tokyo for Team USA are Wieber, Sacramone, Raisman, Li, Douglas, Maroney and Vega! Congrats, Ladies!
The gymnastics Twitter world has literally just exploded with the announcement of the USA Women’s World team. 6 lucky girls + 1 alternate make each of the teams. On the World team there is the current National Champion, Current Vault World Champion/08 Olympian, 2010 World Team member, former UCLA gymnast, and two newcomers. I think this word team has a great shot at medaling and maybe even winning at the World Championships in two weeks in Tokyo.
It’s competition day #1 for the future Team USA 2011 girls down at the Karolyi Ranch. Good luck!!

The US women’s National Team (plus a few others) are at the Ranch this week for World Team Trials. They will go through a series of tests, verifications, and competitions so that the selection committee can decide the World Championship and Pan American Games team that will represent the US. The teams will be announced in a little less than a week!
