Women’s Olympic Gymnastics Team Announced

This was originally posted prior to the 2008 Olympic Games. To see my Olympic Gymnastics Team Predictions for 2012, read – Who Will Make the US Olympic Gymnastics Team in 2012.

After two days of “mock” competition at the National Training Center – aka Bela Karolyi’s Ranch, in Texas, USA Gymnastics is finally ready to announce the members of the Women’s Olympic Gymnastics Team.

In June I predicted the team would consist of Shawn Johnson, Nastia Liukin, Chellsie Memmel, Alicia Sacramone, Shayla Worley, Jana Bieger and Samantha Peszek would be the alternate. Unfortunately, Shayla Worley is now out with a broken leg.

According to, the OFFICIAL US Women’s Olympic Gymnastics Team will be:

  1. Shawn Johnson
  2. Nastia Liukin
  3. Chellsie Memmel
  4. Alicia Sacramone
  5. Samantha Peszek
  6. Bridget Sloan

Alternates will be: Jana Bieger, Ivana Hong and Corrie Lothrop

Congratulations to all the athletes! Let’s hope they can all stay healthy and travel safely to Beijing!
