    1. Good eye. The data I’m using is from the OlyMadMen database who responded to my request for a list of every gymnast with a known place of birth. Diaz is in the OlyMadMen data without a place of birth and wasn’t included in the list I was given.

  1. Why didn’t you list Bridget Sloan from Pittsboro. Indiana? Besides the Olympic team, she was also World Champion and all-around NCAA champion. She was a member of Sharps Gymnastics in Indianspolis.

    *If I already commented then why don’t you fix the list to show Bridget’s name?
