i predict that they'll take sam peszek over jana bieger and someone (anyone) over sui lu. she's way too inconsistent

Samantha will certainly be in the team!
I think the sixth girl of Italian team will be Sara Bradaschia and the reserve Lorena Coza.

About the two spansih spots, one is De Simone of course and the other must be Naomi ruiz, not announced yet, but that's going to be Spain's two spots

The last spot for the Brazilian team has not been taken yet. Khiu is recovering fast from her injury and she is a serious contender again for that last spot. If Khiu does not recover fast enough, the last spot is going to be disputed by Juliana Santos, Ethiene Franco and Milena Miranda (and also possibly Milena Megumi if all goes wrong). Don't count Ethiene in as of yet.
