Nice, France Thanksgiving Weekend -- What Americans are Going?

Recommended Posts

Per Twitter, Oliver and Ruth are going.  Who else?  Hoping we send a quality group over.  Good to see these two going as both have been (rightly, IMO) criticized for not competing in enough international events.  

 

Like to see guys like Dake, Taylor, Kennedy, Pico, Kennedy head over.

Found it. Yasar Dogu this year (2015). Still hasn't made 65kg internationally since graduating and has competed in 1 overseas event total since graduating. How is that possible?

Would like to see Ruth's final. Curious to see if he has made any progress keeping his hips down. Just about every score on Ruth is a result of his hips getting or staying high. It's surprising to me that his high hip problem has not been fixed by now or at least some progress made.
