Jordyn Wieber Will Not Go For Rio

Unlike her 2012 teammates, Olympic gold medalist and world champion, Jordyn Wieber will not make a go for Rio De Janeiro in 2016.
The Lansing State Journal confirmed this in an article published yesterday, December 27. She's enjoying her time at UCLA where, according to the article she is studying Psychology. Due to her "professional" status, she is not eligible to compete for the Bruins, but has found a way for her to still be involved with the team as their team manager.

It's not surprising, since Jordyn seems to be enjoying her time at UCLA hob-nobbing with fellow Olympians such as Samantha Peszek and Jennifer Pinches.

Best of luck to Jordyn and all her future endeavors!

Katelyn Ohashi Sets the Rumors Straight

American Cup winner Katelyn Ohashi has been out of competition for a while due to injuries.

Since she won the American Cup in March, she's been largely absent from the USA Gymnastics scene. In April, she turned down international assignments at the City of Jesolo Cup because she was recovering from shoulder surgery. She was absent from the national championships in August, presumably for the same reason.
