Nastia Liukin says no to Worlds

Liukin Withdraws from Worlds Contention

This surprised me! Although I suppose it shouldn’t. Nastia is a perfectionist, and her routines at Nats were not up to par. I can’t imagine her wanting to go to Worlds unless she was sure she could medal. And by medal, I do mean gold.
Thinking about what this does for Worlds…it certainly opens things up for some other folks! Maybe Hong will go after all, for ub, although her releases don’t have enough height–but her form is lovely. I’d like to see Pezsek for bb…wonder if she could do fx too? And then Hong could do ub?
Ooo or maybe Chellsie Memmel will be ready!
