Pac RIms Live Blog - Women's Team & All-Around Session 2

Subdivision 1 has concluded at the 2016 Pacific Rim Championships, now on to Subdivision 2 - featuring team USA, New Zealand, Canada and Japan.

Expect a cameo from Georgia star, Brittany Rogers who is representing team Canada. When this girl ever has time to sleep is beyond me.
