  1. Beam was a huge disaster today, nearly everyone had at least one fall (Seitz even 3!!😨) Sarah definitly won the competition here with a good routine and her other events were also good, so I’m super happy for her and it’s very well derserved!
    Also can we talk about Emelie Petz bc she really proved herself here as a first year senior! She had one I unfortunate fall on bars, but otherwise a really good meet!
    And let’s not forget about Seitz’s 14.65 UB routine where she also upgraded to a 6.4 D! I mean it wasn’t the cleanest routine, she hit her feet on the bar at the piked yaeger and there were some leg seperations, but someone is aiming for a Worlds medal in front of the home crowd this fall! Can’t wait to see her cleaning this routine up a bit and then hopefully killing it out there!!

    • She’ll likely be the alternate this year, with Seitz, Voss, Schäfer, Scheder, and Bui on the team. The only way I see Petz getting on is if Schäfer isn’t at 100% in October. They offer similar skill sets with vault/beam/floor, but Schäfer is stronger on all three at full strength, and though Petz has a better bars set, there are three other gymnasts already on this team with even stronger bars, so Petz is the odd man out on all four events. However, she is proving that she’s becoming more consistent whereas Schäfer is still returning from injury and might need more time. If Schäfer doesn’t end up being ready by worlds, Petz would make for the perfect replacement, and she could also fill in for pretty much every other gymnast on this team pretty seamlessly (better than any other alternate options), but if everyone is healthy, Petz will be the alternate.

      • I agree that Petz would be a perfect alternate because she can fit in everywhere. Usually she has some consistency problems as well.. Once she is consistent she can become a lock for future teams, I think. But for now do you think she could get on the team if she upgrades to a DTY? And replace maybe even Bui or Scheder instead of Schäfer (at 100%)?

        • Yeah, I think the future looks amazing for her, and if she can actually stay healthy for the next year, she could be a major threat for the Olympic team. It’ll come down to who’s potentially injured next year. I think a DTY would definitely help her become more of a lock, but it’s going to be so close with those four spots next year, it’s impossible to say right now who could be replaced. It could honestly be any of them.

        • Emelie Petz did a great job in her first senior national championships. In a recent interwievs, she told that before her foot surgergy, she did the comepetitions without apparatus warm-ups because of the pain in her foot. Now that she can warm up properly, I think the constistency will come. In June she had a little setback, she tore an outer ligament in her foot. Maybe that held her back on vault and floor, where she is capable to present more difficulty.

          Team Coach Ulla Koch just nominated the following gymnasts to compete the first trial for the world’s team:
          Sarah Voss, Kim Bui, Sophie Scheder, Emelie Petz, Elisabeth Seitz, Pauline Schäfer, Leah Grießer, Isabelle Stingl, Lisa Schöniger, Helene Schäfer, Lisa Zimmermann, Carina Kröll, Kim Ruoff, Janine Berger

    • Yeah, I still think she’s going to be the alternate if everyone is at full potential. Her vaults aren’t difficult enough to make a final and she likely wouldn’t be used in the team final there either, her bars medal is pretty much because Bui didn’t hit, her beam is looking VERY consistent and is a huge plus for her, but if Pauline wasn’t in that final and if she’s at 100% it’ll be her and Voss as the top beam workers…basically if everyone is doing what they’re capable of doing in late September/early October, there’s no one I’d take off the team to have a place for Petz.

      She does make for the PERFECT alternate, though, and could sub in on literally any event which is amazing. Like, if Seitz is out, she can do the AA and have a decent bars score, if Schäfer is out she can replace her on beam and floor without much of a loss to the team score. I also really don’t trust Petz’s consistency at this point, and though I’m happy she had a mostly strong meet here, she’s historically been a wildcard at international meets. I know there are some friendly meets and world cups coming up in the next couple of months, so hopefully she can be tested there and prove herself a bit more, but right now I’d be hesitant to include her as a first option over someone who has already proven to hit when it counts in major international competition.

  3. Kim Bui is a goddess!! She is 30 years old, and apart from being an elite gymnast, she is also a biologist. QUEEN. And I love her fierce bars.
    Also Leah Griesser’s gymnastics are so pretty (love the artistry on floor).

    So I have a lot of soft spots for the German team. So sad to hear that their most promising new senior (Emelie Petz) is struggling with injuries already. They desperately need some younger gymnasts in order to stop relying on veterans this much

  5. I just noticed that Pauline posted the handspring stretched full on vault but only competed her usual half. Do you think they posted the wrong number or did she want to upgrade but felt off while vaulting? If she can do that vault that would be a big plus!


    • My guess is that she probably put the number up in case she felt like doing it, but then decided not to after the touch warmup. I really hope she can eventually get the full competition-ready, though!
