US girls come to Germany!(?)

When I reported about the German plans for this year, I wrote about a friendly meet between Germany, the Netherlands and Switzerland on March 19th, which will serve as Germany’s second trials for the European Championships in April. Apparently, the USA will join them in Chemnitz (GER) – I’m wondering why they don’t come one week earlier and participate in the Challenger World Cup in Cottbus?! And according to the calendar of the German Gymnastics Federation, Great Britain will compete instead of the Netherlands.

So there’ll be: GBR – GER – SUI – USA

UPDATE: Veronica left a comment linking to a friendly meet between ITA-JPN-RUS-USA in Italy at the very same day. So I guess, the US team will definitely come to Europe. Not to Germany but to Italy. The calendar doesn’t seem to be up to date… we’ll see.

UPDATE: Now it’s official, the following countries will compete in Chemnitz: GBR – GER – SUI – ESP – NED

    The 19th of March? Really? Because there will be a meeting that day in Italy, with ITA-JAP-USA-RUS…

    Thanks for the info! That’s strange. Maybe US team decided to go to Italy instead of Germany and the calendar isn’t updated yet. I’ll update the post.
