8:57 pm. Daries FX: Last one up in this subdivision! Lovely routine, finished with an excellent and clean double full. She’s one to keep in your mind for the future.
8:54 pm. Derwael VT: Beautiful FTY, just a hop back. 13.566
El Zeiny BB: Fell on her front toss. Front aerial with a wobble and another fall. Full L turn. Hit the dismount.
Brassart VT: Clean FTY. 13.741! Wow.
8:52 pm. Hermans VT: FTY, nice. 13.333
Netzer UB: Clear hip to toe-on to toe full, pak, Ray, double tuck with a little hop. 11.4
Cummins FX: Hit opening pass, then a good double pike. 11.7
8:49 pm. Olsen VT: She’s gonna do the Cheng! Not bad! Better than Paseka’s if we want to set a standard. Form is a little loose but yeah, much better than Paseka’s. 14.933, average 14.649 to move behind Paseka.
Kremer UB: I missed this. 10.833
Salem BB: Missed this. 10.866
8:48 pm. Eksteen FX: Double pike with a slight stumble back. Fell out of her wolf turn onto her hands. 11.166
Hussein BB: Full turn, nice full-twisting bhs. Hit the dismount. Good work. 11.4
Olsen VT: DTY, excellent. Guess she’ll save the Amanar for finals? It didn’t look great in training. The Cheng actually looked better. 14.366
8:46 pm. Black VT: Tsuk 1.5 is fab from my view! 14.466, average 14.483
Weiss UB: Arched over a handstand on the low bar and had to do an extra kip cast, toe shoot gets zero amplitude and she just kind of drops down to her feet. 8.025
8:45 pm. Black VT: Handspring front layout full, excellent! 14.5
Martins BB: I feel like I’ve been ignoring her all day and yet she’s GREAT, just living in her own world of awesomeness. Little bobble on her switch half. Double full with a step. 12.633
Budda Reddy FX: I didn’t see enough of this to call it hit or miss. Double pike with a step. 10.666
8:44 pm. Iliankova UB: Shang, Hindorff to pak to Maloney to clear hip half to Ezhova, caught close but YAS. van Leeuwen is gorgeous, beautiful handstand before toe full to full-in, LOVELY. Kills me that Melnikova will get two-per-country’ed out though. 15.066
8:39 pm. Moors VT: Handspring front full, hit! A little loose but hit. 14.166! I think that was an upgrade from when we last saw her? Second vault is a tsuk full, lovely!!
Eremina UB: Nabieva to pak, inbar to inbar half to piked Jaeger, short handstand before toe full to full-in. Yay! 15.1!!!
Carvalho BB: I only saw her leaps, switch half looked short, split leap to side aerial. Hit side somi. Hit the dismount.
Nayak FX: Low double pike. Low on her Rudi as well.
8:35 pm. Truong FX: Rudi to start, hit. Double tuck, hands down. Front layout. Hit her last pass. 10.433
Marianito BB: Switch to switch half, barely connected. Goes for tour jete half but can’t get it around, wobbles and turns it into just a tour jete. Hit dismount. 11.433
Melnikova UB: Inbar full to Komova II to pak to van Leeuwen, messy legs, short handstand before inbar half (leg sep) to piked Jaeger, toe full to full-in, a little messy but not terrible. 14.966!
8:27 pm. Eksteen BB: Back to back wolf turns. She trains in the U.S. if you couldn’t tell. Switch to split leap. Bhs loso, front aerial, hit the dismount. 10.766
Maybe an inquiry on vault for Kremer? Her E and D are both low so guessing she effed it up and didn’t get credit for what she attempted?
Netzer VT: Handspring front tuck half, messy with a hop to the side. Looked like she was supposed to go for a handspring layout full but apparently her hands slipped so she had to adjust. Sucks. 12.566. Tsuk tuck full, a little messy but not bad.
8:26 pm. Looks to be an issue on vault…Kremer finished and got her score in 300 years ago but Netzer has been waiting to vault for all of this time. Officials are yelling and stuff, so no idea what’s going on. No one seems to be injured or anything.
8:24 pm. Cummins BB: Punch front, bhs loso is solid, underrotated switch to switch half, wobble on side aerial, split leap to sissone, step to the side on her dismount. 11.366
8:22 pm. Derwael FX: Double pike with a stumble OOB, but hits the second pass and her Memmel to illusion is great. Double tuck a little low but solid finish, and love the dramatic end to her choreo. 12.733
8:21 pm. Salem UB: I missed this routine… 11.666
El Zeiny UB: Toe full to Maloney to pak, stalder to van Leeuwen, slight leg separation, toe half a little muscled before catching her straddle Jaeger, double layout with a stumble forward. That was very nice. 13.533!
Nayak BB: Double spin!! Nice. 10.033
Kremer VT: I missed this. 12.1
8:19 pm. Hermans FX: Hit her opening pass, piked full-in I think. Good 2.5 to front tuck. 12.833
Paseka VT: Second is the Amanar, actually one of her better attempts, but her pre-flight legs are a disaster. Hop forward. 15.0, average 14.933
818 pm. Paseka VT: Cheng and it’s hilariously bad, like, terrifically awful, big step back but she hits. 14.866 with a ridic 8.866 E score.
8:15 pm. Melnikova VT: Lopez, messy, step to the side completely off the mat. 13.833, average 14.166 to lead for now
Moors FX: Podkopayeva, nice. Front double full to front full to stag, YES. Leaps are perfect. 2.5 to punch front tuck. L O V E L Y. 13.866!!!!!!!!
Martins UB: Maloney to pak, shaposh, connected that some more but I missed to what. Caught piked Jaeger. Full-in is good. 13.333
Budda Reddy BB: Wobble on bhs loso. That’s all I saw. 9.033
8:13 pm. Carvalho UB: Hit release. A little messy in spots but she’s hitting. Double pike with a small hop.
Melnikova VT: Messy DTY, like super messy in the air, but not terrible…better than warmups. Hops it back. 14.4!
Budda Reddy BB: I didn’t see the beginning, switch leap to sissone to wolf jump, first two are a bit short, back tuck, hit the dismount.
8:12 pm. Black FX: 2.5 through to double tuck cowboyed but almost stuck. GOD. Stabs herself in the stomach before her second pass, my fave choreo. Front double full to punch front, YAS. Double full with a small hop. Killed it. 13.433
Eremina VT: Yurchenko 1.5 with a step back, not bad. 13.866
8:10 pm. Truong BB: UGH, fell on somethig that I missed but she’s actually really good here. Bhs loso, big wobble. Wobbled on a jump and didn’t connect, so did wolf jump to sissone after. Hit the dismount. 9.066
Giladi VT: Second vault is a front tuck half with a jump to get her feet together.
Marianito UB: Hit routine. 10.633
8:06 pm. Bui BB: split jump to wolf jump, front aerial, fall. Bhs loso with a wobble and a fall. Switch leap. I missed the dismount. 7.0
Giladi VT: Solid FTY. 13.3
Olsen FX: Solid double double. Front tuck through to double tuck, nice. Piked full-in, messy but nearly stuck. Triple full. WOW. That was one of the best routines I’ve seen from her. 13.133
Hussein UB: Maloney to Tkachev, nice handstand before solid bail to toe full (late), ugh, lost her rhythm and paused on the bar before her Ray. Double pike stumbled back. She just looks super nervous, poor kid, she was so good at the world cups and in training.
8:02 pm. Daries BB: Hit bhs loso, wobble on back tuck, hit the dismount. 11.166
Brassart FX: Nice leap right into the corner to start. Piked full-in with a step back OOB. Front tuck through to double tuck, good. TIME FOR THE BIRD CALLS!!! Double pike is great. Double full. Really nice! 12.333
7:56 pm. Hermans BB: Love the little dance-y touch she does at the beginning. Wolf turn, double, not bad! Flexed foot though. Side somi, bhs loso loso with a little bobble at the end but she gets it under control, double spin with a big wobble, looks like she’s gonna hold it but she falls. 😦 Switch to split leap, front aerial, side aerial to split jump, 2.5 with a step. 11.9
7:52 pm. Ng BB: Bhs back tuck, wobble. Hit a leap with a half. Straight jump full. Fell on something after that. Switch to switch half. I’m like half paying attention and half answering comments. Front layout dismount with a step. 8.3
7:47 pm. Kremer FX: Double pike to her knees. Sat double tuck. 9.7
Moors BB: Nails punch front mount!!!! Switch to switch half, stumble, hands down. Could’ve been worse? She’s so lovely though. Front handspring front tuck is good. Lovely full attitude turn. Front aerial, ring jump, supposed to be connected but great cover from her with her dance. Split leap to side somi with a wobble and a fall. NOOOOOOOO. 😦 Cat leap to sissone with a wobble that she dances out of and it actually looks pretty. Rudi dismount is perfect. Hopefully she can get over that quickly and come back to kill floor. 11.533
7:46 pm. Aww, Melnikova is crying. 😦
El Zeiny VT: FTY, not bad! 13.433
7:42 pm. Marianito VT: Handspring front tuck, sat. 11.433
Melnikova FX: LOVE this routine. Double L turn to double pirouette, double arabian, stumbles forward. Double layout with a little hop. Falls out of Memmel into full pirouette. Piked full-in gets nowhere where it needs to get around and she launches onto her hands, does a handstand, then crashes her double pike. Eff. 11.166, 5.966 E.
Black BB: Split leap mount to split leap to a leap half. Double spin, slight wobble. Punch front, bhs layout is SOLID. I knew this girl would BRING IT. Punch front pike. Double pike with a step. GIRL. 13.433, glad the E score was in tune with the rest of the low E scores here. But really beam, get it together.
Martins VT: FTY, a little tucked, two big steps back, 13.166
7:39 pm. Onyshko BB: Bhs tuck full with a wobble but a good save. LOVELY full Y turn to switch to side aerial and then adds a jump at the end. VERY pretty. Switch ring with a big wobble and she puts her hands down. UGH BELA. 😦 Front aerial with a bobble, misses connection. Split jump to sissone, double full with a step. 12.4
Carvalho VT: Yurchenko layout with a step, nothing really majorly bad or good, 11.933
Budda Reddy UB: Simple routine like her teammate’s, hit the layout dismount well. 9.733
7:36 pm. Kassem VT: Handspring front tuck with a step for her second vault. 12.4, average 12.45
Nayak UB: Clear hip, giant full, blind change to front giant half, overshoot, toe shoot, and a layout dismount. 10.333
Hussein VT: FTY, looked nice and floaty but didn’t seem to get enough height, did it to her knees. 😦
Eremina FX: Tucked full-in with a step. 1.5 through to 2.5 to punch front, not bad. Nice double attitude turn. Triple under-rotated, chest down with a step. 12.8
7:32 pm. Netzer FX: Kind of flew off on her first tumbling pass, then sat her double arabian. Hit the double tuck. Double full with a bounce. 10.5

Derwael BB: UGH, missed her mount. 😦 Hit bhs loso and front aerial to split jump, then her lovely dance down into her triple wolf turn which had only a minor bobble. Lovely extension on jumps. Side aerial. Stuck Steingruber. 12.333
Daries UB: I missed most of this, but she caught her release and then seemed to struggle with her rhythm after and had to hop off. 11.233
7:28 pm. I’m not understanding how the E scores on beam are taking 7 years and are SOOOO freaking low, and then on bars they’re insane.
7:24 pm. Marianito FX: Double tuck stumbled back, step OOB. Front full with a step. Lovely double full. She uses the music from someone like Lieke Wevers or Pauline Schäfer but her choreo isn’t as majestic as theirs so it’s hard to get as invested. 12.266
Nayak VT: I missed hers but she got a 13.4 for her first and a 12.925 for her second, average 13.162.
7:22 pm. Melnikova BB: Double wolf turn, almost Chiles-ed it. Front aerial to jump series is good. Full L turn to full pirouette with a little bobble. Switch ring with a little bobble. Bhs bhs layout, the best she’s done it LOL. Punch front tuck. Get dat CONFIDENCE. Ring jump. Side somi, little bobble. Double pike, leg pops up in the back, but that was hit. Some problems but hit overall. 12.6
7:19 pm. Budda Reddy VT: Hit her second vault, I didn’t see what though…tsuk full maybe? Step back. 13.4, average 13.4
Moors UB: Toe full, Maloney to bail (leg sep) to Ray, clear hip to blind change to Markelov, YAY! Moors dismount basically stuck, I’m CRYIIIING!!!! Good for her. 13.066
Carvalho FX: Hit the beginning, front full with a step forward to end it. 11.833
7:16 pm. Budda Reddy VT: Handspring front half is good! 13.433.
Eremina BB: Omg I didn’t get to write any of this down because my thing wouldn’t load but she hit from what I saw. 13.233
Black UB: Caught her Hindorff and then the Shang, hp change to pied Jaeger to pak, messy but caught. van Leeuwen is clean, giant full, toe front half with a small step. She’s thrilled. 14.4 with an 8.5 E which, no, not compared to 8.6s from Fenton and Derwael but I’m gonna let it slide.
Martins FX: Also missed a lot of this due to the delay on the blog. Remember her 2.5 being hit. 12.433
7:13 pm. Brassart UB: Toe full (leg sep), blind change to piked Jaeger, caught it! Huge pak, Maloney to bail to Ray, double pike, looks hit but she’s too far forward and has to roll out of it. 12.533
Kremer BB: Switch to wolf jump, hit layout series. Fell on side somi. Dismount looked a little low. I didn’t see most of this though. 9.066
El Zeiny FX: 1.5 through to 2.5 with a step forward. Double tuck a little low. Sat front full.
Onyshko UB: Maloney to Tkachev, a little low with flexed feet, Hindorff, short handstand before pak, short handstand before van Leeuwen, but it’s clean, toe half to Endo full, muscled and she has to pause on the bar. 😦 Front giant to double front with a step forward. 12.266

Derwael UB: Huge Downie, Ricna half to Ezhova, YAS. Chow, to Bhardwaj, YAS!!! Clean van Leeuwen, toe full to full-out STUCK!!!!!!!!! YAAAAAAY!!!!!!!!!!!! 14.966!!!!!!! 6.3 D, 8.666 E. Amazing.
Giladi BB: Hit her punch front tuck. Flight series, layout was a bit piked. Hit her 1.5 dismount. 10.066
Hussein FX: Love this kid. Triple full stumbled to the side and OOB. 😦 I didn’t see the rest but didn’t see any other big mistakes aside from that opening pass. 11.766
Daries VT: Hit her first vault, an FTY. Looked to be bounced back. 13.4. I didn’t see her second vault but it got a 12.7, average 13.05.
7:02 pm. Cummins VT: Clean FTY right down the middle. 13.433
