  1. My thoughts: Why didn’t they balance out the rotations more? There’s 7/3/6/6. Could have shifted the ESP or VEN gymnasts over and made it 5/5/6/6


  2. Is there any news why the Williams sisters aren’t on the Jamaican team?

    Also the livestream wasn’t on bars and I read that Wang was on bars and was soooo confused why potato was in sub 1 haha my bad


  3. Do gymnasts bounce out of landings during podium training and one touch because they are trying to save the wear and tear of going for the stick? Feel like I see it a lot on FX, VT and HB, especially.


  4. DTY is new for Kinsella, I think she did it first at whatever world cup she was at- Paris or Varna. I’ve forgotten who did which!


  5. Looks like GB will be lucky to qualify anybody into the AA final. Those beam E scores were brutal. Hope Fenton and Fragapane aren’t hit too hard for being first subdivision.
