I’ve not yet heard why. But Marisa will now compete for Trinidad and Tobago at Test Meet rather than Thema.
Thema is here with coach John Geddert. She looked good in podium training. Perhaps she was injured in the training hall.
The switch was so last minute that Marisa’s coaches could not get a visa in time. Ricardo Lue Shue will coach Marisa in Rio.
Both are great gymnasts. Either could qualify to the Olympics.
