Mystery solved: according to Doctor Internet, there is an Asjia O'Neal who is a starter on the now back-to-back National Champion University of Texas volleyball team.
We’re on the cusp of the Winter Cup pseudo-officially kicking off the run-up to the 2024 Paris Summer Olympics.

Some intriguing names set to hit the mats in Louisville this weekend highlighted by two of the last three Olympic all-around champions in Suni Lee and Gabby Douglas - which is still equal parts surreal and insane to consider the monumental comebacks both are attempting here.

Also eyebrow-raising, Trinity Thomas, one of the most celebrated and decorated athletes in collegiate history, trying to transition to the elite level after completing a full and legendary career at the college ranks - which really speaks to the shifting dynamics of the sport.

Some other notable names include Worlds team members Skye Blakely and alternate Kayla DiCello, as well as 4 of the Junior Worlds team members: Hezly Rivera, Reese Esponda, Simone Rose and Jayla Hang making their debuts on the Senior Circuit.

This is shaping up to be the a most competitive race to make the Olympic team since the Magnificent 7.

Winter Classic All-Around in the books, and it’s Kayla DiCello taking gold, building momentum from her all-around gold at the Pan Am games this past autumn.

DiCello was in control throughout with easily the most consistent performance of her career.

Skye Blakely rebounded from a rough start to fight her way to silver. Really the kind of meet she needed after a shaky rookie showing at Worlds.

Reigning Juniors all-around champion Hezly Rivera in her Senior debut takes bronze,

College superstar Trinity Thomas also had a strong showing in her elite debut finishing just off the podium in a close fourth.

Forgettable night for reigning Olympic all-around champion Suni Lee, who fell twice on her signature event of bars. Particularly disappointing after she looked spectacular in the practice session Friday.

Femke Bol (NED) ran a 49.17 in the 400m at the Indoor World Championships in Glascow, lowering her own indoor World Record. Sydney McLaughlin-Levrone (USA), who holds the World Record in the 400m hurdles, and is expected to be Bol's chief rival in Tokyo, has not yet raced this season.
Final PAC 12 championship in the books and it goes again to the reigning champ still trying to erase allegations of a culture of abuse that forced a former Olympian to quit.

Cal was the favorite heading in to win their first ever conference championship, but couldn’t put it all together in the end.

Jade Carey had a perfect 10 on Floor for the Beavers, which gave them an early lead.

The Bruins were in the driver seat at rhe mid point, but the Red Rocks came from behind to take control cemented by Maile O’Keefe’s 15th perfect 10, a school record.
Gabby Douglas will not be participating in the national team camp during the first week of April.

Long story short: her chances of qualifying for the U.S. Championships that determines the Olympic team are dwindling.

Her last chances seem to be the American Classic at the end of April and the U.S. Classic in mid-May.
