Hurd BB- Nails the standing full with a step. Ugh, off on the bhs loso flight series. Punch front tuck. Touches the beam on her front aerial. Clean side aerial. Switch to straddle with a bobble. Tucked full-in with a hop back.

10:26 am. Linari VT- Yurchenko 1.5, a little crunchy, in the air, not bad on the landing.

Spiridonova FX- Double arabian stumbled back a couple of steps and pretty cowboyed in the air. 2.5 with a step but nice in the air. Her choreo goes with her music roughly 0.0001%…it’s like weird club music and flowy arm choreo. Juuuust manages to get that double pike around, some leg sep in it.

10:20 am. Looks like Alyona Shchennikova and Abby Paulson got bumped to the non-team while Ashton Locklear and Victoria Nguyen will be competing for the team. I’m still surprised that Trinity Thomas is on the non-team but we’ll see how everyone looks today.

10:19 am. All of the partial national anthems are done. Excited to get this going!

10:13 am. Gymnasts are walking out!

10:11 am. The 10th anniversary dance is COMPLETE and the competition will get underway shortly! Just kidding, another dance is starting.

  1. I don’t know why but i think the US Junior will outscore the Senior. They are so damn good, at this time, I prefer the Junior, especially Maile, she captured my heart 8 years ago.
    I’m just so disappointed by the livestream, i don’t want to pay in dollars as I’m french. So sad, the competition is so close to me ^^


  2. Yes! Yes! Rebeca Andrade is going to be an AA (and VT) medalist at Worlds soon. Was it the best DTY ever? 9.6 with a bounce?


  3. Brazil beating Russia! Rebeca scoring 56 without the Amanar and without her full difficulty on Bars and Floor. It was her first meet of the year, I hope she stays consistent to shine at Worlds.


  4. My loves : Eremina, Melnikova and Hurd. I like a lot N’Guyen beam but not McCuster robotic and rigid style. Am I dreaming or all the floor exercice of the US girls are the same (except Hurd) ? I am so sorry that Trinity Thomas had a bad day, but it was her first international competition as a senior, wasn’t it ?
