Memmel turn, tour jete full, 1.5 through to 2.5 to front tuck with a small bounce forward, double attitude turn, double back, you can see her buckle a bit in her back handspring and she sits it. Sadly. That was otherwise strong. 12.55 (5.0, 7.55).
11:47 am. Valeria Saifulina, Russia, UB- Komova II to pak (leg sep), toe shoot, inbar to inbar half (leg sep) to straddle Jaeger, grabs the bar but doesn’t get the dowel over and falls. Stalder to stalder full arched over and she falls again. Gets back on for a full-in with a step back. 11.0 (4.8, 6.2).
11:41 am. Senna Deriks, Belgium, FX- Memmel turn, tour jete full, piked full-in with a hop back, 1.5 to front full with a hop forward, little butt wiggle choreo, bless. Switch to switch full, double wolf turn, double tuck a little buckled but saves it with a small hop, her ending choreo is hilarious and awesome. 13.45 (5.1, 8.35).
11:40 am. Asia D’Amato, Italy, UB- Tkachev to pak, Maloney with leg sep to bail with big leg sep to stalder to Ray, short handstand before blind change to front giant to front giant full (fights through a pretty big arch, impressive) to double front with a small hop back. 13.7 (5.3, 8.4).

Double layout, a little short with a step forward but better than it could be. Memmel turn, excellent choreo bit, 2.5 wolf turn, piked full-in with a step back, switch leap to wolf hop, double pike with a hop back. Really nice actually! 13.8 (5.4, 8.4).
11:36 am. Elisa Iorio, Italy, UB- Ricna to pak, Maloney to bail to Ray, front giant to Endo half to Tkachev, nice. Front giant to Endo full to double front half-out, excellent! She’s so underrated among the 2003 Italian babies. Really stepping it up this year to come into the spotlight. 14.65 (6.0, 8.65).
11:34 am. Audrey Rousseau, Canada, FX- Big double arabian with a big rebound forward OOB. 1.5 through to back tuck, looked like her arms were bent on the bhs roundoff and she couldn’t get the double tuck out of it so that’ll be a huge smack to her D. Good double pike, though. Just landed a little forward. 12.6 (4.6, 8.0).
11:33 am. Ksenia Klimenko, Russia, UB- Stalder full, leg sep on the van Leeuwen, inbar to toe half (leg sep) to big piked Jaeger, a little too big and she falls. 😦 She was having such a good day in her other two finals!

Split leap to tour jete half. Stuck piked full-in with a little knee buckle. Switch half into the corner before her last pass, a triple full landed short and she totally rolls over her ankle, damn. That looked like it hurt but I think she’s like Aly Raisman where she’s made out of iron. 12.5 (5.3, 7.3).
11:29 am. Carolann Heduit, France, UB- Inbar to toe full a little late, Maloney to Ricna, nice! Front giant to piked Jaeger, pak, van Leeuwen, double front with a step back. Ok, this kid is great. 13.8 (5.7, 8.1).

11:13 am. Victoria Nguyen, United States, BB- She somehow looks younger than the two juniors who just vaulted. I was like why is a junior on beam?! Clean bhs loso loso. Front aerial to ring jump with a big wobble. Great side aerial to back tuck. Full Y turn to full pirouette. Switch leap to Onodi to sheep jump, not the best sheep body shape and there’s a wobble but I love that series. Huge switch ring. Punch front to split jump to sissone. This routine is superb, once she gets more consistent it’ll be a stellar set. Oh, no, but she sits the 2.5 dismount.
11:12 am. Emma Malabuyo, United States, VT- Incredible stuck DTY. Damn. Who knew Emma Malabuyo would one day be one of the best DTY-ers this country has right now? 14.75 (5.4, 9.35). Huge clean FTY with a step back for her second vault. 13.8 (4.6, 9.2). AVERAGE 14.275.
11:10 am. Riley McCusker, United States, BB- Triple wolf turn is actually quite lovely. So is the double. Front aerial to split jump to straddle jump. Great extension on bhs loso loso but has a huge wobble on the second loso. Switch to switch half, wobble. Side aerial, double tuck with a step back. Another routine she fought through. 14.2 (5.5, 8.7).
11:09 am. Gabby Perea, United States, VT- DTY, big and clean, solid landing, just a slight bounce. 14.7 (5.4, 9.3). FTY is huuuge and clean but has a huge bounce back. Still should put her in first though. Easily. She and Emma Malabuyo will 100% go 1-2 here. 13.95 (4.6, 9.35). AVERAGE 14.325.
11:06 am. Angelina Melnikova, Russia, BB- Cheats up double wolf turn into a standing position, little wobble after split to straddle jump series, switch ring with a low and crooked back leg, not at 180. Bhs bhs layout with a big wobble and a fall. Punch front tuck, full L turn, side somi, double pike, chest down with a hop. 12.9 (5.4, 7.5).
11:04 am. Asia D’Amato, Italy, VT- Big DTY, mostly clean in the air, a little off-center with a bounce but otherwise a solid vault. 14.45 (5.4, 9.05). Ooh, second is a front handspring layout half! Not the strongest in terms of form with a step to the side and possibly OOB, but liked seeing variation in the junior field, especially from a 2003 baby. 13.45 (4.6, 8.85). AVERAGE 13.95.
11:02 am. Melanie De Jesus Dos Santos, France, BB- Punch front pike mount. Punch front pike to a jump. Tick tock into her bhs layout, a little piked but still love that series so much. Switch leap to switch side, short on the split and then she has a big wobble. Good save. Front aerial to stag ring jump. Switch ring, a little low on the landing. Full turn. Double tuck with a step back. 13.75 (5.6, 8.15).
10:56 am. Marine Boyer, France, BB- Wolf turn, roundoff layout with a check but she holds it. Switch to switch half with a scary wobble but again fights it. Full L turn to opposite pirouette. Front aerial, check, side aerial to split leap to side somi, best part of her routine so far, but still a little bobble at the end. Double pike with a step back. 14.1 (5.8, 8.3).
10:55 am. Elisa Iorio, Italy, VT- DTY, a little low with her chest down and a big step forward. 14.1 (5.4, 8.7). FTY, clean, a little off center, little bounce back. 13.6 (4.6, 9.0). AVERAGE 13.85.
10:53 am. Flavia Saraiva, Brazil, BB- Little wobble on the ending of her bhs loso loso series. Excellent roundoff layout. Switch to sissone. Bobble forward on her switch ring. Punch front to split jump to Korbut, excellent. Front aerial, wobble, sheep jump, wobble. Warning bell dings during her side aerial. Nearly stuck double pike. 14.1 (5.8, 8.3).
10:52 am. Ana Padurariu, Canada, VT- Super clean FTY with just the tiniest bounce in place. She’s also doing all four finals today, like Elisa Iorio. 13.75 (4.6, 9.15). OHHHH MYYYYY GOODDDDDDD, THE MOST PERFECT YURCHENKO 1.5. Stuck! HOW WAS SHE CRASHING THESE A MONTH AGO?!?!?!?!? SOMEONE HAS A NEW AA VAULT!!!!! 14.2 (5.0, 9.2). AVERAGE 13.975.
10:50 am. Rebeca Andrade, Brazil, BB- Little wobble on bhs loso. Front aerial to split jump to back handspring, excellent and fluid connection. Awkward switch half, though, and she wobbles on it. Punch front tuck, a little low, full turn, switch ring, switch leap to wolf jump, side aerial, double pike practically to her knees. Close to the mat if they didn’t actually touch. Big step forward. 13.35 (5.4, 7.95).
10:48 am. Valeria Saifulina, Russia, VT- DTY, not bad! 14.4 (5.4, 9.0). Sat Yurchenko 1.5 though. 12.8. AVERAGE 13.6.
10:46 am. Giada Grisetti, Italy, BB- Nice switch leap, bhs bhs…bhs. Misses the loso AND then falls. Noooo. She’s so pretty to watch. Full Y turn. Front aerial with a big wobble as she’s about to connect it so then she’s like “just kidding.” Onodi with a little bobble. Clean side aerial. Switch leap to ring leap. Double tuck super buckled but stuck. 11.65 (4.7, 6.95).

10:25 am. Ana Padurariu, Canada, FX- Piked full-in with a little bounce back. Switch full to switch ring. Switch half into the corner, 2.5 to barani instead of the front full, quick thinking on her part! Finishes with a double pike, chest a bit down, but solid landing. 13.2 (5.0, 8.3).
10:23 am. Ashton Locklear, United States, UB- Toe full to Chow to pak to Maloney to bail to Ray, all easy for her. Toe half to big straddle Jaeger, full-out, looked stuck or close to it, but her feet were blocked in this angle. 14.55 (5.5, 9.05).
