Spring captures a berth in Beijing
Question of the Day
“I’ve been through so many injuries and so many ups and downs - I’m going there hoping to be just as consistent as I was during this two-week process,” he said. “I don’t think I’ll change my routines at all. I’m on this team because I proved to be consistent.”
In the Olympics’ 6-5-4 scoring format (six gymnasts a team, five compete in each event, top four scores are counted), Spring is expected to compete in the high bar, parallel bars, floor exercise and vault.
Valdez expects Spring to be relaxed during the Olympics despite this being his first trip.
“[Earning a medal] is a possibility on both [high bar and parallel bars], and he could definitely make the event finals on parallel bars,” Valdez said. “He’s going to perform better at the Olympics because the trials was the pressure. Now it’s going to be fun, and he thrives on the fun aspect. If he can go and have fun, he’ll do a great job.”
