Without the injured Oksana Chusovitina, these are the names of the girls who try to earn their spot on the German team for the World Championships in four weeks:
Marie-Sophie Hindermann (only BB & UB – she was injured)
(all photos from the 2009 German Championships via gymfan.de)
Germany intended to use all four spots and send the best gymnasts after the trials next week (18 & 20 September, Kienbaum) to London.
I would love to see all of them – Maike is such an elegant gymnast, Marie-Sophie as well as Anja have the most experience and if they hit their routines on UB, they could make the finals. Kim and Elisabeth are really powerful. Especially Kim is a strong “all-arounder”.
