Bridget Sloan: The new U.S. rock?

The aforementioned post from the Los Angeles Times’s Diane Pucin has this sentence regarding 2008 U.S. Olympian Bridget Sloan:

Headlining the women’s competition will be 16-year-old Olympic silver medalist Bridget Sloan. U.S. coaches hope she will be the cornerstone for the national team for the next four years, as Alicia Sacramone was for the 2008 Olympic team.

I wonder which U.S. coaches Pucin talked to who gave her that impression? Martha Karolyi? It’s nothing against Sloan, who did a wonderful job coping with the pressure of being relatively inexperienced and handling the U.S. Championships, Olympic Trials and selection camp, and leading off for the U.S. in team prelims on floor and finals on vault — but it would be nice to have the attribution.
