Any official word on which Americans are competing this weekend.  Oliver and Taylor will allegedly be  there -- both confirmed via Twitter over the last week that they will be there..  Who else?


I read the list of tentative attendees posted in January, but looking for confirmation of who actually traveled.

Garry Abbott was good enough to send an updated roster to me (see below).  Of course there is no guarantee each of these guys will weigh-in, but this list should be a better indicator on who will be competing than the preliminary rosters published in January.


Taylor also confirmed via Twitter that he went to Turkey.  Rep from the Sunkist kids also confirmed that Oliver traveled over.
