2:55 pm. Pilgrim FX- Double arabian with a little hop forward. 1.5 through to double tuck, good. Random layout stepout pass in her choreo. Solid double pike. Could maybe get another gold!

O’Keefe VT- Second vault is an FTY, clean with a hop back.

2:54 pm. Modaro UB- It’s so weird that there are three Australians in senior bars finals and none of them are Mizzen. Attempts toe full but falls halfway through. Does it again and hits but it’s messy. Maloney to pak both good, arches over on a toe half and falls off again. Toe shoot a little close, piked Jaeger is good, but then loses her swing and comes off again. Crazy that her skills are good but it’s the swings that are getting her. Double pike with a step.

O’Keefe VT- Clean DTY, maybe some ankle crossing, hop on the landing. Good power though.

2:52 pm. Maldonado FX- Love this routine and her as a performer. 2.5 with a little scoot forward. Hit second pass. Switch ring to split full. Double tuck with a bounce forward. Double full to straddle jump to finish.

Malabuyo VT- Second vault is an FTY, looked good.

2:51 pm. Malabuyo VT- Great DTY to start, just a bounce on the landing. She’s improved here sooooo much!

2:50 pm. Koike UB- Clear hip to toe on to stalder half to straddle Jaeger, stalder to stalder full right on the bar to pak (leg sep), toe shoot, double pike with a stumble forward.

2:49 pm. Asia D’Amato VT- Second vault is an FTY, good, hop back.

King FX- Solid double tuck. Hit second pass, something into a front full. Sat 2.5.

2:48 pm. Asia D’Amato VT- Solid DTY, chest slightly down with a step.

2:47 pm. Hatakeda UB- Inbar to inbar full, messy van Leeuwen, inbar half to piked Jaeger, bail to stalder to Ray, full-in with a hop back.

2:45 pm. Villa VT- FTY second vault, super clean and floaty with a little bounce back.

DiCello FX- Double pike a little short, followed up by a solid 2.5. Hit third pass, I think a 1.5. Big double tuck with a step to finish.

2:42 pm. Villa VT- DTY, a little short with a step forward.

Chrobok UB- Toe on to bail to stalder to toe shoot, toe on to Tkachev is great, giant full, blind change to front giant to double front with a hop forward.

2:38 pm. McLellan FX- Washington commit with lots of power, I really like her. Double tuck with a little hop back. Switch ring to split full. Front full to split jump, double pike, runs out of gas a bit and straddles the second pike a bit which slows her down further, hands down on the floor. Too bad, that was otherwise solid.

2:37 pm. Hanawa VT- Second vault is an FTY, very clean, slight pike on the landing with a step back.

2:36 pm. Hanawa VT- Handspring front pike half, just a bounce on the landing. Lots of power.

2:34 pm. Padurariu VT- Yurchenko 1.5 second vault and it’s probably her best ever, a little squatted on the landing but nothing like the problems she had at Elite Canada and even last night.

Delourmel FX- Double tuck with a stumble forward. Hit second pass, I think it was a front lay front pike, and then a 1.5 to finish.

Whitehead UB- Toe full, Maloney to pak (slight leg sep), van Leeuwen, Markelov is great, double front with a big step back.

2:33 pm. Padurariu VT- Super clean FTY in the air but a little short, doesn’t quite get her chest up and has to have a little stumble forward on the landing.

2:32 pm. Vézina FX- Double pike with a couple of steps back before she gets control. Loooovely illusion turn. Second pass I think was a front layout half to punch front? Layout 1.5 to finish.

Vella-Wright UB- Stalder to Maloney to pak, all really clean, toe-on to van Leeuwen also super clean, front giant half with a little knee bend, giant full, arches over in one of her giants before her full-in, sky high with a little bounce.

2:31 pm. Jurca VT- Second vault is Yurchenko full-on back tuck off with a hop back. Such a cool vault.

2:30 pm. Jurca VT- Tsuk back pike with a big hop back as her first vault.

2:29 pm. Marois UB- Straddle Jaeger, bail (ankle sep) to toe shoot, clear hip, hit feet on the low bar on a giant, double pike low with a hop.

2:27 pm. Lorange FX- Double pike with a hop back. Hit second pass. Nice double full, and then a great choreo bit at the end.

2:26 pm. Serita VT- Handspring front pike, gets a little tucked in the knees before the landing. Second vault is handspring front pike half, same issue with her knee bend.

Olsen UB- Stalder half (leg sep) to Jaeger, bail (messy) to stalder full to stalder to toe on to inbar shoot, short handstand before giant to full-in dismount. Okay, so her form obviously isn’t great there, but she’s getting so good at making it through routines.

Beautiful extension on leaps. Sassy faces right at the judges, WITH A WINK. She’s perfect. Double tuck and her scrunchie flips right off during the tuck but it doesn’t bother her even a little. Fabulous ending. Omg, she didn’t even know her scrunchie came off, her coach points at it and she cracks up.

2:14 pm. Maldonado BB- Little check on full turn, punch front with great power, clean jumps, bhs loso with a little wobble (leg up), switch leap, slight check so she doesn’t connect it to anything, side aerial, switch side with a slight wobble, switch half, hit the dismount.

2:10 pm. Pilgrim BB- I wish meets did beam and floor one at a time so (a) I wouldn’t have to watch both at the same time and miss stuff, and (b) so there wouldn’t be three minute pauses between routines. Hit layout flight series and full Y turn, switch to split jump, bhs loso loso series is also great, SKY HIGH double tuck, lands so far upright, bless! Just a bounce.

O’Keefe FX- Double arabian is good, hit second pass (I missed it while watching Pilgrim’s flight series, see what I mean?), double tuck is clean, beautiful extension on one of her leaps just now, double pike a tad low with a bounce back.

2:06 pm. Wai BB- Front aerial, sheep jump, side somi, I think she eventually wants to connect that as a mixed series. Off on front handspring front tuck. 😦 Full Y turn with a little wobble, switch ring, punch front full dismount with a hop.

Padurariu FX- Piked full-in to start is good. Great 2.5 to front layout full! She missed that in training, did a punch tuck to her butt. Double pike with a step back to control it. Great work, smile and wave to the crowd.

2:00 pm. Folino BB- Hit her wolf turn, punch front with a small step forward, bhs bhs layout with a little tentative step, front aerial to split jump, side aerial, and just a layout dismount. Great set.

Perea FX- Good tucked full-in with a bounce back, front tuck through to triple full, nice. 1.5 through to 2.5, step forward to control it. Double pike.

Gabby Douglas’ 2016 floor music started playing the second Gabby Perea came off the podium, bless.

1:56 pm. Johnston BB- Wobble on the turn, good punch front, another wobble on a jump, bhs loso loso with bent legs and a fall, front aerial to split jump to sissone, hit double tuck dismount with a step.

Belousova FX- Double pike into a lunge, 2.5 to front tuck, I looooove the way she punches into the tuck, it’s so effortless and controlled. She knows exactly where she is in the air. Rudi third pass, good. Double tuck with a stumble forward but she holds it up.

Chusovitina VT- Second vault is a tsuk 1.5, also good, just a bounce on the landing.

1:55 pm. Chusovitina VT- Handspring front layout full, actually fab aside from the pre-flight. Hop on the landing.

1:52 pm. Grenke BB- Full turn, bhs loso with a little check, off on barani. Still crazy that she has one, how awesome. Switch leap to split jump. Clean punch front.

Iorio FX- Solid tucked full-in, chest slightly down. Double pike with a bounce back. Hit third pass. Clean double full to finish. Beautiful work.

Moors VT- Second vault is handspring pike half-out, good. Bounce on the landing. I think her difficulty was too low to get her a medal here if anyone hit but still a bummer to see her have that fall in the first vault.

1:50 pm. Moors VT- First vault is her tsuk full, really good air and looks clean but then she has a little stumble and ends up putting her knee down. 😦


1:49 pm. Strukova FX- Double pike with a step. Clean 2.5 to punch front. Hit third pass and then double back stuck to finish, chest just down a bit.

Olsen VT- Second vault is the Yurchenko half-on tucked 1.5 off, aka the Khorkina. Good, prob some form stuff that I can’t see from where I am, but just a hop on the landing. About what you’d expect from her.

1:48 pm. Chia BB- Switch to straddle 3/4, big wobble and then she falls back off the beam. Switch to side aerial, slight check. Hit flight series. Double full a little short.

1:47 pm. Olsen VT- First vault is a Yurchenko double with a hop back.


1:44 pm. Hatakeda VT- Nice Yurchenko 1.5 for her first vault and a solid tsuk full for the second.

Palacios BB- Little wobble on her first skill and then off on her side aerial. Bhs loso with a wobble. Switch leap, tour jete half, wobble on switch half, wolf jump to split jump, off on side somi. Good double full to finish.

Hanawa FX- 1.5 through to double pike a little low but hit. Still obsessed with this music. Hit second pass, something into a punch front tuck, I missed the start of that. Solid double tuck.
