The World Championships that occur the year after the Olympics are always notorious for low scores and surprise medalists. Many Olympians have either retired or are taking a break from the sport. This opens the door for many new comers as well as veterans that have never broken into the top three. The United States has a great chance of winning a gold medal in the individual all-around as well as on vault.
