The Tampa Thunder sent three of its' best athletes to this training camp:  Ben Carpenter, Ryan Coton and Danny Gorman.  After three grueling days of competitive drills and games the final 12 were chosen.  Although Ben and Ryan fought hard and played exceptionally well they were unfortunately not chosen this time.  Danny Gorman was chosen as one of the final 12 and The Thunder is behind him 100% in TeamUSA's quest to once again become World Champions.
