      • This team is not great on floor. Alice and Kelly are OK, Becky doesn’t train it. Georgia I don’t think we’ve seen complete floor for a while, so who knows. GB obviously value Lucy for her DTY more than Taejas floor, which is weird because if she hits she’s a genuine medal contender.

        • James has a habit of not hitting her FX. She is wildly inconsistent. Stanhope is a guaranteed 14.5 on VT.
          James could show a 14.000 but more than likely it will be in the 12s due to errors. Simm is also a guaranteed 12.8-13.0 score.
          Even if they used James on FX, Stanhope’s DTY will bring in way more than Simm or Fenton on VT in difference, rather than James on FX over Simm or Fenton.

    • Yeah, where is Iliankova, or Nabieva? Also, Kharenkova has not shown herself to be fit for competition. She seems out of shape even though the potential is there. Glad to see Komova back on the team.

      Like

      • Akhaimova has been injured, so I think they decided to go with Kharenkova for that reason, especially considering she could provide on Beam what they would’ve gotten from Akhaimova on floor. As for Iliankova, she should be on the team over Perebinosova. Maybe they find Iliankova too inconsistent across all four, I mean she hit only a single Bars routine over the course of the Russian Cup, even if she did ultimately get silver AA. They could decide to see how she does in preparation for Euros and put her back in if she does well. On paper this seems solid for TF:
        VT: Melnikova, Komova, Simakova
        UB: Melnikova, Komova, Perebinosova
        BB: Melnikova, Kharenkova, Komova
        FX: Melnikova, Kharenkova, Simakova
        But this lineup offers little to no backup if someone doesn’t come through. Still, Mustafina, Nabieva, Trykina and Alexeeva are all still in contention for a spot along with Iliankova, this is only nominative are there’s a month until competition.

  1. Umm interesting choice from Russia? I’m surprised to see Kharenkova and Perebinosova on the team instead of Iliankova and Akhaimova

    Like

  2. Kharankova and Perebinosova over Iliankova, Nabieva, Akhaimova? I HAVE SO MANY QUESTIONS.

    Also, where is Ioana Crisan?

    Like

    • Crisan pulled out of Koper Challenge Cup after qualifying the bars final due to some pains. I don’t know if she has recovered. Currently she is the only Romanian with 5.0+D bars, but her execution is no better. She might not be able to contribute on other events – her beam is difficult theoretically but she hasn’t had a single clean routine in any competitions since 2017, and she hasn’t bring back her floor routine yet, while everyone else except Golgota on the team seems able to do floor with 5.2D and 7~8 E)

        • It depends…not usually more than 6 weeks for processing time so I think they could work out worlds this year. Euros cut it close because she was named to the Bulgarian team when the cutoff for claiming spots came up, so I’m guessing they didn’t have time to get her approved? Ireland had a similar issue with a junior not yet having a license (she just got hers approved yesterday) but since they are sending a full team, they signed up for four spots initially, and then determined the athletes for those four spots when the nominative list was due. For Bulgaria, I think they just originally submitted for those two individual spots, so they’d have to remove one of those gymnasts and add Laney in if she got her license in time. But worlds def shouldn’t be a problem.

  3. Romania will be sending a team as young as their 2014 WC squad with 4 totally new faces, lead by the only veteran Ocolisan. Good luck…

    Like

    • But unlike 2014 the new faces have utilised world cup experience. They have 3 world cup medal winning gymnasts from this year including ocolisan and theyr’e training under forminte now so i think it will go decently for them. Line up prediction:
      Vault: ivanus, ocolisan, golgota
      Bars: Ocolisan, Golgota, Ghiciuc
      Beam: Ivanus, Iacob, Ghiciuc
      Floor: ivanus, ocolisan, golgota

  6. I really don’t understand the Netherlands. They are not bringing Sanna Veerman? Really? She has the most potential AA by far, also the strongest FX. (Doesn’t she have a DTY, too?) That’s crazy to me. She’s a first-year senior, she needs that experience. And it’s not like she’s worse than some people on that team. But the Netherlands sometimes have drama with team choices, too so maybe that’s just another one.

    Like

      • The team isn’t official yet, but Visser will likely be the alternate…I think they just like sticking with the veterans right now, and Visser still hasn’t proven herself fully in international competition, though she did have one really good performance at the friendly meet. But they’re going on more than just that one meet even if it was a high score for the Dutch athletes.

        Like

      • But being the best AA in Netherlands doesn’t matter. There is no AA finals this year, all that matters is the team. It is 5-3-3 in TQ and TF. Netherlands needs to put together a team of 5 that fits best. Visser doesn’t really rank amongst the top 3 on any event, except maybe UB. But UB is more than covered with Sanne, Celine, and Eythora. They need Van Pol and Volleman for VT and FX.

    • She hasn’t really shown this year that she has what it takes to do well on a major international team, though she has had some good individual results. She is also just coming back from an injury right now, so she’s not quite where she needs to be and I think they’d rather not risk someone with her potential at a major international event!
