The Olympic test event is a qualifying meet to the Olympic Games this summer for teams and individuals that have yet to qualify to the games. The test event will be next weekend. And I was able to talk with a few of the gymnasts that will be competing there. Danielle Hypolito seemed much more confident this time around than she was in 2012. Danielle talked about how she was the last one up on beam at the 2012 test event where she captured a ticket to London for Brazil. This time around she mentions how she feels much more confident as there is a lot more talent on the Brazilian team which takes away a little bit of pressure. She mentions how the whole team is very talented and consistent including the alternates. Hypolito also goes on to say how she feels much more confident that the Brazilian team can qualify to Rio easily. Obviously, this is true and I’m looking forwards to seeing how Brazil does at the test event next weekend. Thanks for reading this short article and stay tuned for more! 🙂
