Double tuck, low chest with a step, overall better than I expected even with the little bobbles. 13.233

2:56 pm. Saraiva BRA BB: Stumble on her mount, I couldn’t type through this because the page was loading but didn’t see too much else majorly wrong (no falls anyway); little stumble on a leap maybe, and hit the dismount. 13.233

Yilmaz TUR FX: Opening piked full-in was super low but hit the rest. Her music is HIGH KEY INSANE. I love it. 12.533

Excellent. 14.4, D is 6.2, E is 8.2, makes sense based on the quality of some of the skills earlier on, still in 7th and not many to come who can knock her out of the final though!!

Akhaimova RUS VT: DTY, wild in the air, flies off the mat. 13.633, 14.099 average, currently 8th.

2:52 pm. Andrade BRA BB: I missed the beginning with the bars drama. Switch leap, then fell right after that, I didn’t see it but heard everyone go OOOOH, and saw her on the floor. Stuck the double pike with her chest down, but too little too late unfortunately.

Akhaimova RUS VT: Rudi, messy in the air but a decent landing. 14.566

2:50 pm. Fenton GBR UB: Fall on her first release, a Downie I think. 😦 The woman in front of me yelled “Oh NOOOOO!” Same. Back on, I saw from Maloney to Ricna to bail, pirouette, toe shoot back up, full-in, stuck. Poor thing. 13.2

Üctas Sanli TUR FX: Good double tuck at the begining.

Simakova RUS VT: Crashed her Rudi. 😦

2:46 pm. Melnikova RUS VT: DTY, a mess in the air, a little low on the landing. 14.266 Lopez, still a little messy but finds the landing, looked stuck, just arm movement to hold it. 13.758, for a 14.012 average, out of the final.

E. Downie GBR UB: Front toe half to Maloney to Hindorff, nice, short handstand before the toe full, muscles through and it’s crooked but she still gets the Downie to Pak, van Leeuwen, a little messy, double layout with a hop forward. Fought through it! 13.466

Barbosa BRA BB: Solid loso mount. I missed some stuff, until the L turn, which looked nice. Wobble on a side aerial I believe. Came off on something but I didn’t see what. 11.7

Mutlu TUR FX: Double tuck, little bounce. That’s all I saw.

2:44 pm. Sahin TUR FX: She was last to go on beam and now first on floor. Hit her first pass. Good 1.5 to punch front. 11.7

2:29 pm. Saraiva BRA UB: Piked Tkachev, short handstand before the Pak, leg separation, short handstand before the toe-on to Maloney, connects it to a straddle Tkachev, blind change, short, toe full, blind change to front giant to double front, high and clean, step forward. She could improve her E score by like…at least 6-8 tenths if not a point if she just got her handstands vertical. 12.4

  1. I know Russia’s already had their four vaults, but I’m still convinced that Aliya is somehow going to get a vault score and find herself in the AA final.

    Maybe the FIG will allow her to do a single-event nationality change? hahahahaha


  2. Fuck this Aliya not in AA final this worlds sucks just give SB the 6 gold medals it’s all a farce anyway you are all clowns


  3. Good results for Russia . Solid beam and no head casing. Even with the lack of individual medals I think they will be very happy if the are solid in TF and get silver


  4. Good results for Russia . Solid beam and no head casing. Even with the lack of individual medals I think they will be very happy if the are solid in TF and get silver
