As we head into the second year of the Olympic quadrennium, lets take a look at 2014’s likely senior players. We can look more in depth into individuals in the months to come, but for now lets just remember the lay of the land.

Abby Millet, Felicia Hano, Ashton Locklear, Melissa Reinstadtler are all current or new seniors who have attended one of the last few National Team Training Camps and may be names to watch. There are others out there who may or may not be around this year. There is evidence that Sarah Finnegan is making her way back to elite shape. Sabrina Vega is planning on being back for this year if all goes well. Jordyn Wieber, Gabby Douglas and Aly Raisman are all said to be doing some training, but have not put anything out there lately that would seem to say they will be trying to be back for this season. Katelyn Ohashi is still quiet on her training front.

I can’t wait until we start seeing where these girls are at this year, and other new names the year may bring!
