Peyton Ernst To Represent Team USA at the Tokyo Cup

For the second year in a row, Peyton Ernst has been selected to represent Team USA at the Tokyo Cup this April.

Peyton, who came in fourth at the P&G Championships attended the Tokyo Cup last year in her first year as a senior. She came in second to Japan's floor wonder, Asuka Teramoto who is also making an encore appearance.

Joining them will be: Vanessa Ferrari, Italy, Carlotta Ferlito, Italy, Giulia Steingruber, Switzerland, Roxana Popa (aka the Mistress of the Gymternet Pranks), Spain, and Victoria Moors, Canada. Russia has indicated they will send an athlete, but no one has been named yet (perhaps Anna Rodionova could benefit from the experience?).
