(綜合報道)中國在北京奧運歷史性地贏得女子體操團體金牌，但「大換班」後於今年倫奧出擊，目標已大為不同。包括新核心眭祿在內的一眾隊員，無力接替程菲的領導地位，教練陸善真亦承認青黃不接；再加上美國及俄羅斯近年勢強，預料國家隊只能與羅馬尼亞爭奪銅牌。 四年前，程菲、鄧琳琳、何可欣、江鈺源、李珊珊與楊伊琳攜手為中國奪得首面體操女團金牌，何可欣亦在高低槓摘金，締造佳績。今屆，由於程菲年初腳跟腱斷裂，中國女子體操隊由姚金男、眭祿、鄧琳琳、黃秋爽擔正，何可欣則獲得最後一席位。 五人之中，只有鄧琳琳與何可欣具備奧運經驗，而且後者更被去年從器械掉下的陰影籠罩，一度被傳與倫奧無緣。至於曾被女隊主教練陸善真視為新核心的眭祿，在國內比賽雖有優秀發揮，但國際賽成績乏善足陳，唯一的世界大賽冠軍是去年世錦賽平衡木金牌，心理質素受到質疑，恐怕難當女子體操「一姐」大任。 近兩次世錦賽，中國女隊在團體賽都只得第三名。陸善真教練承認，中國女子體操隊目前遇上大問題：「一方面是我們自身隊伍的接班問題，以及後備人才的實力還是不足；另一方面，我們的對手現在也很強大。在倫敦奧運會上，比賽競爭的激烈程度肯定要遠遠大於北京奧運。」 女團冕路難行，體操隊預料會在單項尋求突破，傳統強勢的平衡木相信是中國女子體操金牌突破點。即使世界冠軍眭祿大賽失準，中國亦有世界亞軍姚金男作「保險」。名將劉璇表示：「以中國隊目前的實力，能拿一面(團體)銅牌就非常不錯了。平衡木或許有一拼吧，因為無論鄧琳琳還是眭祿，都具備了奪冠的實力。」
