  1. Japan will challenge for the silver come worlds time which is crazy considering where they were four years ago.
    VT: Murakami, Teramoto, Miyakawa
    UB: Hatakeda/Sugihara, Teramoto, Uchiyama
    BB: Murakami, Hatakeda, Teramoto
    FX: Sugihara/Hatakeda/Teramoto, Miyakawa, Murakami
    Bomb. They just need to choose two of Hatakeda/Uchiyama/sugihara and they’re set

      • The thing is, is that Japan seems more set and prepared than both Russia and China. If the two Angelinas, Komova and Mustafina are all prepared and healthy come worlds, then those four alone will come up with more than enough points to keep them safely ahead of China and Japan assuming they hit. But it wouldn’t exactly be the most surprising thing in the world if Komova suddenly shattered into a million pieces (see 2013,14 and 16), or they decide that Mustafina should get more time to rest and get her routines prepared (she looked amazing considering she pushed a baby out of her body less than a year ago, but we still can’t make the assumption that she’ll be fully ready based off of one good day, especially now that she has a minor meniscus injury), and Melnikova has had something go wrong with her days before competition in both Rio and Montreal, and there’s no telling if that will change this year. They have enough depth to remain a top 3 team if something happens to one of their main 4 all arounders, but it’s not a guarantee either. For China, they’re hard to predict because with the exception of Chen Yile, they really don’t have any clear locks, and no one besides Yile really looks like they can go to worlds and be able to consistently hit. Also, it doesn’t matter how great they are on Bars and Beam if their floor scores end up getting 12s and their vaults end up in the 13s.

    • Vault: Asuka, Sae, Murakami
      Bars: Teramoto, Sugihara, Hatakeda
      Beam: Hatakeda, Muraksmi, Asuka
      Floor: Hatakeda, Sugihara, Murakami (if i were head coach there would be no way in hell that i’d be letting Sae do floor in an international worlds team final. Id let her try for EF)

        • Olympic qualification is on the line this year though and Japn has a decent shot at the podium. Maybe next year when they already qualify (either through Top 3 this year or Top 12 next year) then Sae could do floor in TF.

  2. I’m worried about Sae Miyakawa because she’s super inconsistent. I really, really want to see her succeed but she doesn’t seem to have built up enough confidence over time.

    Like

    • I dont know if it’s a confidence issue. I feel like people might disagree, but I think that she does too much difficulty to hit consistently. I remember how Aly tried packing in as much difficulty as possible on floor in 2015, and then she ultimately ended up having to downgrade it because it was too much for her body to handle and she wasn’t able to hit consistently. I feel like it’s the same thing with Sae except she’s still going with her insanely difficult but inconsitent routine.

      • Actually, I think you might be right. My other thought was that her body at 19 is probably pretty different than when she was 16. The routines that she’s doing now might be too much for the changes. I absolutely agree that she needs to downgrade, though.
