  MOCEANU FILES GRIEVANCE (INTERNATIONAL GYMNAST)

A hearing was held Wednesday for Dominique Moceanu, who filed a grievance after her petition to compete at the upcoming U.S. Championships was rejected after the recent U.S. Classic in Kansas City.

After the U.S. Classic, a USA Gymnastics spokesperson said Moceanu's petition to the U.S. Championships was denied because she did not meet the required two-event score of 28.00 in Kansas City.

However, during Wednesday's hearing held via conference call, USA Gymnastics' Kathy Kelly said Moceanu's petition was not rejected for that reason.

Moceanu maintains that she was told in writing that the requirements to petition to the U.S. Championships were to attend the national team training camp in July and to compete on at least one event at the U.S. Classic, and was not informed that other criteria would be used.

The Grievance Committee chairman for USA Gymnastics is Ken Allen. Allen selected a three-person hearing panel, composed of chair Marje Kiley, David Kennedy and former rhythmic gymnast Jessica Howard.

USA Gymnastics is expected to announce its decision Thursday morning.
