I heard Leyva is the alternate, but don't have a source.. 

 

I'm sad he isn't selected by the way, he is by far my favourite male US gymnast.

Leyva was injured right before the first competition.  And even yesterday I thought he looked worse then then orozco who realistically was his competition for the last spot

Alternates are not given medals...

 

Since 2014 alternates are awarded team medals at the World Championships, and I'm 99% sure this works for the Olympics as well.

This is true for most competitions, but not for Olympic Games (as explained here in page 68)

 

Citar

Except for Olympic Games, Delegations with full teams are entitled to include one reserve gymnast for men and one reserve gymnast for women. Remark: For Olympic Games no Reserve Gymnasts are allowed.

This is the best possible team for Canada and a shoe-in for a top 6 placement. On paper, only Russia, China, Japan, Great Britain and the USA are ahead of Canada now. Brazil and Germany are roughly on the same level, I think. It will be interesting to see if Italy, the Netherlands, France and Belgium can challenge for the top 8. Maybe the Netherlands can make it ahead of Germany, but I doubt Italy, France and Belgium can make much of an impact at this point.

The Dutch men will have to do without their coach at the Olympics: Mitch Fenner, architect of the historic qualification, has passed away today :(
