Best of luck to both Brittany and Briannah!

In related news, Peng Peng Lee has withdrawn from the selection process. In a note to Gymnastics Canada, Lee stated that following her knee injury at Canadians where she tore her ACL, she does "not want to rush into doing gymnastics for the Olympics if my knee could be at a greater risk and possibly affect me in the future.  I will be attending the Olympic Games to support Team Canada and will be cheering them at the top of my lungs!"

Gymnastics Canada has named Lee as the Honorary WAG Team Captain for the 2012 Olympic Games as she is a dynamic and respected leader among the WAG NT athletes and that her winning attitude and determination are commendable.

Gymnastics BC joins Gymnastics Canada in wishing Peng Peng a full recovery.
