Ana Derek’s AA score is 49.466!!! Should get her to Tokyo, I think.

12:18 pm. Spain about 2 points back from Belgium as a team, but they’re likely to qualify both Rodriguez and Popa to the Olympics, I’m SO HAPPY, this was such an incredible day aside from that beam fall. They really put pressure on Belgium tbh. I hope they can keep it going into next quad.
