2:16 pm. Mata UB: Nice Ray! Rest looked good from what I could see. 11.7
Steingruber VT: DTY, chest slightly down but a great anding. DAMNNNNNNNNNNN. I figured this was a throwaway worlds for her since she wasn’t planning on being at full strength until Euros next year but damn. 14.4, average 14.75, second behind Paseka.

2:05 pm. I’m already annoyed with the millions of people who, if Ragan ends up winning, will never shut up for 1000 years how Larisa “would have won” if she didn’t get injured. #CrystalBall #YouCanSeeTheFuture!!!!111!11
Can we just be humans who feel bad for Larisa’s super terrible freaking injury while also not putting down others??????
2:03 pm. Mader BB: Full L turn, bhs loso with bent legs, switch to sissone, front aerial with a wobble, side aerial, adjustment, side somi with a wobble, gainer layout dismount. Well, she hit!
2:01 pm. Sanne Wevers is doing an inquiry OF COURSE! She’s like I’ve calculated my D score 45 times already and YOU ARE ALL WRONG.
1:58 pm. Männersdorfer BB: Fell at the beginning, I think on her flight series. Good back tuck. Just a layout full dismount. 10.633
No Paula Mejias on beam… 😦 Guessing she scratched.
1:57 pm. Vostruchovaite FX: Really clean double arabian but does it to her hands and knees. 😦 Double pike with a bounce back. Switch to tour jete half, not quite at 180. Hit her double tuck final pass. 10.0, the second “perfect 10” of the meet!
Sanne Wevers only got a 5.0 D score!!!!! 12.733 total, has her in 5th right now with the overall low beam scores. But damn, she went for a 6.5, so that’s intense. I mean, she wasn’t at her best and missed a lot, but damn.
1:56 pm. Sanne’s score is only taking 14 years to come up.
1:53 pm. Steingruber FX: A little off on her oepning leap, but nailed the full-twisting double layout with a small hop. Double layout is great. Front tuck through to double tuck with a bounce back, she’s a little short and her leg flies back but she doesn’t touch the OOB so that’s good, at least not that I saw. Double pike stuck cold! That was great aside from the third pass. 13.266
Sandoval VT: Hit both of hers. Think first was a tsuk full but I didn’t see the second.
1:50 pm. Käslin FX: 2.5 to front tuck with a little bounce forward. Memmel turn stopped right on the beat which was cool. Double tuck is practically stuck. Switch ring through to tour jete half, nice. Omg her middle choreo section is super cool. Ring leap. Double full with a step back OOB. 12.233
Mokosova UB: Toe half to straddle Jaeger, Pak to stalder to Maloney to bail to toe full to Ray, NICE!!! YAY! Double pike stuck. One of her best!!! 12.9
Mata VT: Second vault was a NICE FTY! Average 13.449
Thorsdottir submitted an inquiry and it was rejected.
1:49 pm. Søderstrøm UB: Stumbled forward her dismount, that was all I saw. 10.5
Mata VT: Handspring front tuck half with a hop back.
1:47 pm. Skregelid UB: Shaposh to bail to toe full, toe shoot, really nice for her but then stumbled the dismount forward and somersaulted out of it.
Studer FX: Double pike with a hop. Good double tuck, messy double full. 11.8
S. Wevers BB: Hit mount, wobble after her first jump, 2.5 L turn, bent her knee on the last half, that’s the one she’s trying to get named. Side aerial to side aerial to straight jump full, front aerial to split jump, hit double turn to split leap, probably something before that I missed, Steingruber dismount with a hop. 12.733
Almeida VT: Hit, 13.2
1:44 pm. Nekrasova VT: I missed the second one but the first was a lovely Yurchenko 1.5! Went above 14 I think. Average 13.904
1:42 pm. Ponor FX: Went for the double layout full-in! Messy as f and pretty short, hit with chest down and a lunge forward. Whip whip to double tuck is good though. Practically stuck. Front tuck through to double pike with a lunge. How does she always look so out of shape in training and then she comes out and looks comparitively great in the meet? Her 2.5 is really awful though. 13.266
Jirikova UB: Stalder to giant full, Jaeger with bent legs, bail to clear hip to toe on to toe shoot, blind change to double front sat NOOOOOO THAT WAS SO GOOD UNTIL THAT POINT.
1:40 pm. Holasova UB: Off on her Ricna. 😦 Bail with slight leg sep to toe shoot, great double layout dismount. 11.133
Thorsdottir BB: Side aerial to Korbut is lovely, front aerial, misses connection after that, ring jump, little bobble. Full L turn to split leap to full Y turn to full pirouette, GORGEOUS, just tiny little adjustments. Stumbled forward on her underrotaed 2.5. 12.833
1:37 pm. L. Wevers BB: I missed the beginning because of the Iordache drama. Everything looked good. Full L turn with a big wobble, double spin, fell on something after that. Hit the dismount. 11.166
Cenkova UB: Caught her pak. Stalder to toe full, hit the rest. 12.266
Inshina VT: Hit
Crisan FX: Whip half through to double tuck, good. Great landing on tucked full-in. Front through to double full, good. Double pike with a step back. Good for her for having a great set after seeing Iordache go down. 12.8
1:36 pm. So we started off with Larisa Iordache injuring her knee on NOTHING, getting carried off the podium in tears and taken out in a wheelchair. WHAT. THE. EFF.
1:33 pm. Oh. My. God. I hope someone got the Netherlands walk out on video because it was hilariously epic. They are literally the Beauxbatons of Harry Potter.
1:32 pm. In this subdivision we’ll get Azerbaijan and Mexico on vault, Czech Republic, Norway, and Slovakia on bars, Netherlands, Puerto Rico, and Austria on beam, and Romania, Switzerland, and Lithuania on floor.
