Podium training is now complete, and on Monday June 1, the Chinese women will begin contending for this year’s national titles in Fuzhou.

The women will begin with three qualification subdivisions on Monday, and then continue with the all-around final on Tuesday and two days of event finals on Wednesday and Thursday.

Qualifications also act as a team final, with the gymnasts competing under their provinces. Subdivisions are based on last year’s team final results, with the weakest teams in the early subdivision and the strongest going at the end of the day.

With Yao Jinnan still recovering from the shoulder surgery she underwent in the United States earlier this year, she is unable to defend her all-around title, leaving it wide open for anyone to grab.

The following gymnasts are set to compete.

  1. It sucks that there’s never much of any video from Chinese competitions. This is compounded also by the fact we don’t see them outside of china too many times during the year. At least US shows video of classics and nationals even if they don’t compete much abroad. How is anyone hoping to keep up with the latest on them…..

    Anyway, Shang Chunsong was their 2nd best AA last year. With Yao out, you know anyone that could grab this title? Bai had a great beam set at worlds last year so I hope to see her again.

    I really want to see their EF to see how they are doing regarding vt and fx….

    • Yeah, hopefully videos will pop up on Youku. A bunch appeared for Individual championships last October so I’d imagine there will be someone willing to put them up for a larger meet like this!
