3:11 pm. Alvarado CRC FX: Double pike, good landing! Good 1.5, dances out of it. Switch ring, she’s a great performer. Front full, tucks it, and puts her hands down, NOOOOOOOOOO. 11.100 (4.6, 6.500)
3:09 pm. Japan comes in behind BELGIUM, wow. 161.228. One hundredth back. They might be missing Mai Murakami now…
3:05 pm. Matsumura JPN BB: Hit the tuck full series! Big wobble but she got it. Good on the front aerial. Clean side aerial. Side somi is solid. Hit the dismount. 12.633 (5.4, 7.233)
Vihrova LAT UB: Watched this out of the corner of my eye, hit routine! 12.100 (4.4, 7.700)

3:01 pm. Orrego PER FX: Tucked full-in to start, and then a double tuck, a little low. Hit routine! 12.300 (4.7, 7.600)
Kajita JPN BB: Front aerial to split ring jump. Bhs loso, break at the hips, but saves it. Side aerial with another sizable break. Wow, I am like, zoning out right now, I watched this routine but don’t remember anything else that happened in it. Spencer just told me she had a big break on a Y turn. 11.900 (4.9, 7.000)
Assadourian ARM UB: Pak, toe shoot, hit the dismount. 9.766 (1.7, 8.066)
3:00 pm. Moreno MEX VT: Rudi with a hop back. 14.900 (5.8, 9.100)! She will get Mexico’s all-around spot. Tsuk double for her second vault is really strong as well.
2:58 pm. Gutierrez MEX VT: Big Yurchenko 1.5! 14.133 (5.0, 9.133)
Teramoto JPN BB: Nailed her jumps and then her Onodi. Switch leap. Didn’t type through some of this after until the dismount apparently, 2.5 with a hop. Hit routine! 12.966 (5.2, 7.766)
Collantes PER FX: Hit the first pass. The rest was great! Hit and fun routine.
Stalinkeviciute LTU UB: Off on her Tkachev. I didn’t see much of the rest, stalder front tuck dismount. 10.966 (4.5, 6.466)
2:56 pm. Vostruchovaite LTU UB: Toe-on to toe shoot, blind full, blind change to front giant to double front, stumbles it back a bit.

Lago MEX VT: Clean, almost stuck FTY. 13.633 (4.6, 9.033)
Diaz PER FX: Double tuck was good. Front layout, comes up really short out of it, still goes for the front tuck, but almost sits it, super deep. Surprised she could stand up out of it tbh!
2:48 pm. Japan solidly in the mix right now at a 122.663, which is fifth-best going into the final rotation…but the Netherlands, Great Britain, and Germany all add vault scores in the final rotation, and Japan goes to beam, so…it could be interesting.
Right now, Japan needs a 40.259 on beam to break ahead of the super deep pack that starts with Canada and ends with Belgium.
2:47 pm. Montoya CRC BB: Bhs loso, flexed feet but hits. Goes for a switch leap but just kind of…skips? Hit the jumps. Transverse split jump half is super short. Front aerial, too far forward and she falls. Side aerial, side somi, both hit, just some form deductions. Full L turn. 1.5 with a step forward.
2:43 pm. Salas CRC BB: Nice press mount. Switch leap to split leap to straddle jump, wobble. Standing loso into a back layout, cool! Full turn. Back salto but I couldn’t tell what it was from this angle. Hit a transverse jump (no twist). Punch front, a little low but solid. Transverse split jump half, then a straddle jump half. Was super off in her bhs into the dismount and just did a back layout, that looked scary for a second. Good routine until that point. 10.833 (4.6, 6.233)
2:39 pm. Diaz PER BB: Had a long wait. Bhs loso, slight check. Tour jeté, little obble, and same on the side aerial. Full turn. Front aerial. Switch leap to switch side into a split jump, good! She was fourth in the beam final at Pan Am Games, clearly very strong on this event. Hit the dismount. 12.300 (5.1, 7.200)
2:37 pm. Gutierrez MEX FX: Triple full, some twisted ankles but hit it. 1.5 through to double tuck, a little low, small hop. 2.5 to front layout. Great work!

2:33 pm. Moreno MEX FX: Busts out a double double, casual, a little messy but she gets it. Double layout, damn girl. Tour jeté half to switch side half. Front full to stag. Stumbled on the double pike at the end. 12.300 (5.0, 7.300)

2:30 pm. Lago MEX FX: Hit her tucked full-in, just a little messy. Crashed the double pike. 😦 Front tuck through to double full. 11.800 (4.9, 6.900)
Collantes PER BB: Off on her transverse jump. UGH. 9.300 (4.1, 5.200)
Vostruchovaite LTU VT: I missed this. 13.466 (4.6, 8.866)
2:28 pm. Kajita JPN UB: Stalder half to big piked Jaeger, Nabieva! Pak is pretty clean, slight leg separation. Van Leeuwen, SUPER high tucked full-in, a little unsure of the landing but wow, she’s gotten better there. 13.533 (5.5, 8.033)
2:26 pm. Garcia MEX FX: Arabian double front at the begininng was good. Her music is awesome. Jesus Christ Superstar, like the really scary part. Stuck the double tuck at the end. 12.466 (4.6, 7.866)

Salas CRC UB: Toe full to Chow to Pak, nice! Just little leg issues. Big air on her van Leeuwen, toe half is a bit arched into the piked Jaeger, catches it though, blind change comes up a bit short, open double pike with a couple of steps back. 12.266 (5.2, 7.066)
2:14 pm. Orrego PER UB: Maloney to bail to toe shoot, blind change to straddle Jaeger, blind full to Tkachev, double layout slightly low with a hop forward.
Stalinkeviciute LTU FX: Hit what I saw, just not super high difficulty in some of her passes. 12.200 (4.5, 7.700)
2:12 pm. Collantes PER UB: Ugh, I missed this during Elsa Garcia’s beam drama. 11.166 (4.1, 7.066)
The media setup here is so that floor is central, with beam on one side and bars on the other, so if I watch one I miss the other. At U.S. meets the media is by bars on the side, but can see the entire arena at once so you miss nothing. Makes life so much easier.
2:10 pm. Garcia MEX BB: Switch leap mount, good. Was a little slow on a leap series after that. Punch front. Bhs layout, a bit piked with some leg separation. Good jump series. Side aerial, a little short. Side somi, also a little short, slight wobble. Her legs are SOOOO LONG. Switch side, too far back, falls backwards, and basically swings under the beam. UGH. Double tuck, cowboyed with a step back. 10.666 (5.0, 5.666)
2:09 pm. Vostruchovaite LTU FX: Double tuck, a little short. 2.5 was also a little low, but hit. Step back on her front full. Switch half. Barani for her last pass.
Diaz PER UB: Blind change to big straddle Jaeger. Went into a dead hang after a transition back up to the high bar, and just a layout dismount. 10.033 (3.8, 6.233)
2:06 pm. Lago MEX BB: Hit the bhs loso with a wobble. Punch front, clean, just a bobble. Switch leap. Pause before the switch half. Double tuck, a little cowboyed, hop back. 11.433 (4.8, 6.633)

2:05 pm. Vihrova LAT FX: Good on her double pike. Double full a little messy and short. Clean leap series. Split jump full. Front tuck through to a back layout. Hit routine. 12.166 (4.6, 7.566)
2:04 pm. Moreno MEX BB: Full turn, punch front pike, slight bobble. Bhs loso is good. Punch front, excellent! Hit a transverse jump. Big wobble on a switch half, but not too severe. Most of her leaps have been a bit short. Double pike, solid. 11.900 (5.2, 6.800, -0.1)

1:53 pm. Assadourian ARM BB: Candle mount, fall on the flight series. She’s performing to “Wake Me Up When September Ends” thanks to the arena. Hit her leap series. Full turn, slight check. Side aerial, check. Transverse straight jump full. Gainer pike with a hop.
1:47 pm. Vostruchovaite LTU BB: Punch front mount, nice! Front aerial to front pike, DAMN, a fall, but that’s such a badass series. Switch leap to switch half, a little short, to back tuck. Good on the side somi, little check. She’s performing to an instrumental of “My Immortal,” a great beam song. Full turn, little check. Front full with a little hop. Good routine there, shame about the fall. 9.933 (3.8, 6.133)

1:39 pm. Teramoto JPN FX: Piked full-in, chest down with a hop. 1.5 through to 2.5, little bobble on the landing but she stops herself right in the corner. I think a front double full for her next pass. Low double pike, stumble back. 12.566 (5.2, 7.366)
1:38 pm. Orrego PER VT: Another big clean FTY, but this one with a big hop back. 13.433 (4.6, 8.833)
