Sacramone Back In It? Footage From National Team Training Camp!

Alicia Sacramone Vault April National Team Training Camp

 

WOW!!!

 

I’m not sure if I’m more shocked that USA Gymnastics is posting videos from a national team training camp or that Alicia Sacramone is vaulting her handspring layout rudi as well as she’s ever done – with still nearly two months to go before the Olympic team is officially announced.

 

If Alicia is already back to form on vault, I expect that she is on beam as well.  This is important to note, because although the U.S. now has several world class vaulters without Sacramone, they aren’t overflowing with 15+ scores on beam. I strongly believe this team needs a third reliable beam worker (to join Wieber and Raisman) just as much as it needs a third bar worker, and this could put Sacramone right in the mix.  In 2010 and 2011, Sacramone was one of the most solid beam workers in the U.S. – as well as in the world.

 

In case you missed this video of Sarah Finnegan posted yesterday from the same training camp, here it is:

A fantastic triple turn.  She is fast on the rise, and right now appears to be a contender for at least an alternate spot on the Olympic team.

 

Thanks USA Gymnastics for giving us a rare look at what’s going on behind the Karolyi camp doors!
