Who earned the chance to go to the Olympics? Mirai or Ashley?

Ashley Wagner's prior performances to the 2014 US National Championships is why the US will be able to send 3 ladies to the Olympics in Sochi. However, Ashley performed poorly at the 2014 Nationals and placed fourth by falling twice in addition to another jumping issue. The federation elected to send Ashley instead of the third place lady, Mirai Nagasu who also placed fourth at the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver. Some say if Ashley got so nervous at nationals during an Olympic year that she will choke again at the Olympics. Who earned the chance to go?
