Many L10's in the US are better than many elites from some parts of the world, which is why some girls who cannot possibly compete for the US, compete for other countries.
.... When people say to your very good L10, "Can't wait to see you at the Olympics"". It is pretty hard to explain that your kid doesn't have a chance in H.ELL, because they see girls competing at the O's who are not anywhere near as good as your dd.
The Olympic dream is no longer a real thing for US gymnasts, there are just way too many awesome girls in the talent pool.
