    • Looks like, smth went wrong there, prob she fell on bars and beam and decided to give up;-)) im not sure if is all around and apparatus competition. Shes been competing every other week, now she went to Japan, i reckon shes tireddddd


  1. If my math is accurate (don’t hold your breath), had Chen Yile hit bars during AA like she did for event finals, she would have eclipsed O’Keefe for gold. Can’t help but celebrate the fact that WAG might become competitive betwixt the various top countries again.


    • Your math is accurate. Further, if you take the best scores from every event, you get O’Keefe with 56.63 and Chen with 56.72.

      Nonetheless, that doesn’t indicate that the team competition will become competitive. It likely won’t. US team of Biles, Perea, O’Keefe and Malabuyo would blow China out of the water at this point. Even if you substitute Smith for Biles, no one else can touch the US team wise.

      In terms of Individual AA, without Simone, the US is still in the same position: favored due to consistency not D score. Even at this year’s worlds, if everyone hits, it is going to be tight between Iordache, the Russians, and Ragan Smith. The other American probably shouldn’t be on the podium if everyone hits. Nonetheless, I don’t have much confidence that anyone OTHER than the Americans will actually hit 4/4 clean routines, and thus I expect Smith to win and ultimately think the other American will be on the podium. But it is consistency and not difficulty that leads me to that conclusion.

      Even here, yes Chen has higher max scores than O’Keefe, but Maile has had one fall in competition all year whereas most of her peer gymnasts in other countries have one fall per meet.


        • Was just gonna add this! Just shows how close malabuyo and o’keefe are currently in terms of d/e scores. Curious who will come in as a senior at the higher rank, as it seems both have ambitious upgrades in mind!


  2. maile keeps constantly edging malabuyo for a ridiculous tiny amount of points. she got the edge over malabuyo on every EF but FX buy LESS than 0.1. on this meet. that’s cool.


  3. But life is unpredictable. Just think of Ohashi, Key, Foberg, Flatley who shined so much as junior and, for different reasons, didn’t have a senior internatinal career. With puberty Malabuyo can change physically a lot, Perea is injured and maybe the future best senior is not one of this fantastic trio.
    O’keefe seems a rock for now : so consistent, never injured and puberty crisis behind her.
