It appears that Cyril Tommasone of France will be filling in that open position on the Men’s side of the competition.

It also appears that Jiang Yuyuan of China will not be competing in Jacksonville and has been replaced by Great Britain’s Hannah Whelan.

These updates come from the USA Gymnastics press release regarding the 15th Anniversary celebration of the 1996 US Women’s Gymnastics gold medal at the Atlanta Olympic Games. That gold medal marked the first, and to date, only Olympic Team gold medal for the United States women. Six of the seven members of that team will be in Jacksonville for the celebration: Amanda Borden, Amy Chow, Shannon Miller, Dominique Moceanu, Jaycie Phelps and Kerri Strug.

There is no word as to why Dominique Dawes will not be in attendance.
