Price, Iordache Withdraw from American Cup

By January 28, 2013

Follow me on:

Up-and-coming American star Elizabeth Price has been withdrawn from the roster for the American Cup (held Mar. 2 in Worcester, Mass.) due to a strained hip muscle. USA Gymnastics has also announced that Romanian gymnast Larisa Iordache will no longer be competing, though no reason was given for her withdrawal.

Japan's Koko Tsurumi and Canada's Victoria Moors have been added to the lineup, though neither of these athletes will replace Price and Iordache. Price's replacement will be an American, and will be named after a February national team training camp. Iordache's replacement, per USAG, will be named in the "near future."

I'm disappointed for Price and hope she heals quickly. She has been on fire this season so far. I hope the US chooses one of the new seniors as her replacement -- I'd love to see Katelyn Ohashi or Lexie Priessman earn the spot and get some big-meet experience.
