Bolding those who would be getting the Olympic berths based on current standings!

5:35 am. Emilia Kulczynska POL FX: Double front, hop forward, good! Double tuck, tiny bounce in place. Front layout full, stumbles it back a bit.

55.299 for Vladislava Urazova!!!

5:34 am. Vladislava Urazova RUS UB: Clean inbar full right on the bar, to Komova II to Pak, lovely. Another great handstand before the van Leeuwen, inbar half to piekd Jaeger, a little low and long but no problems catching it. Blind change is short, but gets the blind full to full-in with a slightly low chest and a hop forward. 14.500 (6.1, 8.400)!!!

Beatriz Cardoso POR BB: 11.666 (4.9, 6.766)

5:30 am. Maria Ceplinschi ROU FX: Omg, goes for a double layout! Low and she fully tucks the second flip but good upgrade. Tucked full-in, messy in the air, solid on the landing. Switch ring to tour jeté full. Double tuck to punch front! Then a double pike to finish, her first flip is actually fairly laid out for a bit, HAHA. Needs to work on accurate positions for literally all of her passes but impressed with a first-year Romanian senior ACTUALLY doing big floor upgrades. 13.266 (5.3, 7.966)

Jutta Verkest BEL UB: Clear hip to Maloney to Pak, clean on the latter, maybe slight knee bend. Van Leeuwen, blind full, blind change to piked Jaeger, full-out low with a lunge back. Promise! 12.933 (5.2, 7.733)

Astrid Breckmann DEN BB: 10.400 (4.5, 5.900)


Margaux Daveloose BEL UB: Blind full, blind change to piked Jaeger, clean, Ricna a little low to Pak, leg separation on the Pak, low on the Maloney but catches, doesn’t get big backswing though, to bail to Ray, blind change to tight double front, sits it. UGHHHHH. 11.833 (5.2, 6.633)

5:26 am. Ganna Metelitsa BLR UB: Maloney to Bhardwaj, van Leeuwen, muscled the crap out of a handstand on the high bar after, low dismount. Some difficult skills in there!

Elvira Katsali GRE FX: Hit both passes I saw at the beginning, one was a double tuck. Layout full to finish. 11.666 (4.1, 7.666, -0.1)

Francisca Cancela POR BB: 10.833 (4.4, 6.433)

5:25 am. Some all-around scores…Alice D’Amato 51.532, Elena Gerasimova 50.499, Emma Malewski 49.266, Francisca Cancela 48.865, Chrysa Balami 41.299

5:24 am. Sarah Voss GER VT: Living for this unitard. FTY with a small hop back, big air and pretty clean. Had a second vault as well but also looked downgraded, a tuck with a twist but I couldn’t really tell from this angle/distance. 13.600 (4.6, 9.000) for the FTY

Anastasiya Smantsar BLR UB: Late in a low bar pirouette, toe shoot, short handstand after, double pike dismount with a step back.

5:23 am. Elena Gerasimova RUS UB: Didn’t see it. 13.800 (5.9, 7.900)

5:21 am. Chrysa Balami GRE FX: The floor feed is working but we’ve been burned before. Double tuck with a small hop back, slightly buckled knees. 1.5 to front tuck is good. Switch ring, really nice! Maybe just a low front leg. To split ring leap. She’s a lovely performer. Layout full to finish. 11.833 (4.1, 7.733)

Emma Malewski GER VT: FTY, tiny bit low, but decent distance, step back.

5:20 am. Alice D’Amato ITA VT: I think she went for the DTY, looked really low with a stumble forward. 13.800 (5.4, 8.400)

5:15 am. No Gabriela Janik on beam? We’re moving into the final rotation now THANK GOD.

5:13 am. I didn’t realize Giorgia Villa isn’t doing the AA, just UB/BB, but makes sense I guess!

5:11 am. Maria Ceplinschi ROU BB: Candle mount, bhs layout is solid. Split leap to split jump. Back tuck, solid. Everything looking good so far! Punch front, a little tentative on the landing. Switch half, a little slow into it and has a small check, but fine. Double tuck with a hop. Good! 12.933 (4.9, 8.033)

5:07 am. Jutta Verkest BEL VT: FTY, seemed fine to me, nothing out of this world but good. 13.366 (4.6, 8.766)

Elvira Katsali GRE BB: Off immediately, on her mount I think? Didn’t see the skill, just the fall. Oof. Front aerial, big wobble, break at the hips, but stays on. Bhs loso with another big break and a fall. Then off again on something like, instantly. A transverse jump I think. Side aerial, break at the hips. Jump series is fine. Good 1.5 dismount. 8.866 (4.9, 4.366, -0.4)

Francisca Cancela POR UB: 11.466 (3.4, 8.066)

Astrid Breckmann DEN UB: 10.166 (3.9, 6.266)

5:05 am. Emma Malewski GER FX: Whip through to double full, some leg form issues. 1.5 to front full, little step back. Double tuck, chest a little low, bounce back. Switch leap. Layout full, buckled on the landing. 11.233 (4.4, 7.233)

Margaux Daveloose BEL VT: FTY, looked really deep on the landing. 13.100 (4.6, 8.500)

5:03 am. Anastasiya Smantsar BLR VT: Yurchenko layout. Couldn’t really see how it looked. 12.600 (4.0, 8.600)

Chrysa Balami GRE BB: Off on her flight series. Front aerial to jump series. Side somi is good. Oof, does her bhs into the dismount out of a handstand, but misses the dismount completely, just does like, a half twist, as in like…she jumped off and twisted around, no flip. 9.433 (5.1, 4.433, -0.1)

4:59 am. Alice D’Amato ITA FX: Double wolf turn, doesn’t have the best/cleanest finish. Hits the double layout for her first pass quite low, big fall forward but no hands down. Triple full is low, underrotated too, looked like a toe OOB. Memmel turn, rushes out of it. Switch to tour jeté half. I didn’t see the end. 12.100 (4.9, 7.200)

Elena Gerasimova RUS VT: Think I just saw her doing her FTY in the background. 13.266 (4.6, 8.666)

Beatriz Cardoso POR UB: Looked like she had a double layout dismount! 9.766 (4.2, 5.566)

Vladislava Urazova RUS VT: Feed froze right in the middle of what I assume was her DTY, some crossed legs in the air but looked to get high off the table. 14.433 (5.4, 9.033)

Emilia Kulczynska POL BB: 9.600 (4.8, 4.800)

4:57 am. I’m following the IG live stream now, and keeping the other streams open as well. The IG live stream isn’t cute but I’ll at least be able to get SOME routine stuff on here. I really can’t put into words how murderous my rage is at the moment re: the streams. Meanwhile the arena is playing Mika’s “Relax” HAHAHA.

4:56 am. Next rotation warmups starting!

Sarah Voss GER BB: 10.600 (4.8, 5.800)

Margaux Daveloose BEL FX: 12.866 (4.7, 8.166)

4:52 am. The @basel2021gym account on Instagram is streaming LIVE! Missed Sarah Voss’ routine but she is competing in a full bodysuit, I’M OBSESSED!!!!!!

4:50 am. Jennifer Williams SWE BB: 12.133 (5.2, 6.933)

Anastasiya Smantsar BLR FX: 10.500 (4.2, 6.600, -0.3)

Maria Ceplinschi ROU UB: 9.800 (4.1, 5.700) YEP SOUNDS PRETTY ROMANIAN TO ME

4:48 am. Well, I’m still gonna ride this blog out and hope that streams eventually go up. For now I’ll just be posting scores until that happens since not a single feed is working. Thrilling.

Alice D’Amato ITA BB: 11.666 (5.0, 6.666)

4:46 am. Elvira Katsali GRE UB: 10.033 (3.6, 6.433)

4:42 am. Vladislava Urazova RUS FX: Mustafina to illusion I think, the stream stopped, you shocked?! Apparently hit a double full. COOL. 13.333 (5.2, 8.133)

Chrysa Balami GRE UB: 8.733 (3.6, 5.433, -0.3)

4:41 am. Giorgia Villa ITA BB: 12.600 (5.5, 7.100)

4:40 am. Francisca Cancela POR VT: 13.033 (4.2, 8.833)

4:39 am. Elena Gerasimova RUS FX: Whip whip through to triple, a little messy in the air and unstable on the landing. 2.5 to front tuck is also a bit messy and wild, lands it OOB. Switch ring to split ring leap. Double tuck, low and bounces forward, hands down. LORD BEER ME STRENGTH. Double full, again some messy legs, tiny bounce in place on the landing. 11.833 (5.3, 6.933, -0.4)

Emma Malewski GER BB: 12.600 (5.5, 7.100)

4:38 am. Beatriz Cardoso POR VT: 13.000 (4.2, 8.800)

4:36 am. Astrid Breckmann VT: 12.066 (3.7, 8.366)

Emilia Kulczynska POL UB: 11.725 (4.3, 7.425)

4:34 am. Jutta Verkest BEL FX: Goes slow into the double pike then the stream stops. 🙂 Back up for her split ring leap. Decent front layout full at the end. I’m glad we saw some of it I suppose. 12.833 (4.9, 7.933)

4:33 am. Warm-ups are winding down on floor. The only working stream now. 🙂

4:30 am. Moving on to the second rotation! CAN’T WAIT. It’s all going so well so far. Now we’ve lost the bars stream as well after it worked perfectly for a solid ten minutes of nothing happening.

4:29 am. Ganna Metelitsa BLR BB: 10.933 (4.5, 6.433)

4:28 am. Now live scores seem to be down, what a live blog!

4:24 am. The beam stream is completely gone again. We’ll always have Smantsar. ❤

At least bars and floor have been working consistently for me. Even though no one is on either. They’re live and humans are moving around.

4:21 am. Anastasiya Smantsar BLR BB: Hit a clean jump series at the beginning, then missed the beam completely on her flight series. Hit the dismount. 10.766 (4.7, 6.166)

4:20 am. Okay, we have some liftoff on beam, only no one’s on it, so I can assume we’ve missed Elena Gerasimova’s routine. 🙂

Oh no, she only got an 11.600 (5.5, 6.100)…SWEETIE NO

4:18 am. With beam the only event going right now, and with ZERO BEAM FEED, there isn’t much to do except watch for scores I suppose…

Vladislava Urazova RUS BB: 13.033 (5.6, 7.433)…now I NEED TO SEE WHAT WENT WRONG

Some vault scores…

Elvira Katsali GRE VT: 12.041 (3.5, 8.541)

Maria Ceplinschi ROU VT: 13.400 (4.6, 8.800)

Emilia Kulczynska POL VT: 13.133 (4.2, 8.933)

Chrysa Balami GRE VT: 11.300 (4.0, 7.000)

4:14 am. Beatriz Cardoso FX: Double tuck, a tiny bit deep but clean with her feet on that landing. Front tuck through to layout full, also good. Double pike is pretty buckled with a lunge. 11.433 (4.0, 7.433)

4:13 am. Adlerteg with a 14.0 on UB! I’m going to put in some of the scores below since we CAN’T WATCH ANYTHING RIGHT NOW.

4:12 am. Beam stream is completely gone now just as Urazova is set to go, but live scores are coming up! Floor and bars streams seem to be low key working.

4:11 am. Francisca Cancela POR FX: Good clean double pike to start, just bounces OOB. Front layout to front full with a step forward, a little unsteady there. Split jump full. Good double tuck to finish. 11.333 (4.4, 7.233)

4:09 am. Jonna Adlerteg SWE UB: Hit the Shang and Pak, clean on both. Maloney to Bhardwaj, REALLY low on the latter but she caught it! Shaposh to clear hip full to Tkachev, good, and clean but maybe a little whippy double layout, a little low with a hop forward. I think I got everything. 14.000 (6.0, 8.000)

4:08 am. This video thing is KILLING ME. I’m at least getting bits and pieces. No live results either. I haven’t been able to see any of vault yet. Hopefully things will start working soon…

4:05 am. Astrid DEN Breckmann FX: Double pike, clean, chest maybe a little low. Front layout, legs a little bent going into it. 11.333 (4.2, 7.133)

Alice D’Amato ITA UB: Her routine played in fast motion for me which was great. I saw everything but couldn’t type during it. All looked good though, hit the double front dismount at the end maybe a little low. 13.966 (5.9, 8.066)

Jutta Verkest BEL BB: Break on the layout stepout mount. Came off on a wolf turn. Hit a 1.5 dismount at the end. 10.466 (5.3, 5.166)

4:03 am. So the first few went, it seems…my videos keep stopping and starting so THIS IS FUN SO FAR. I saw most of Margaux Daveloose’s beam and Josephine Sørensen’s floor, if the start lists are correct. Emma Malewski also went on bars.

Giorgia Villa ITA UB: Tkachev to Pak to Maloney to Bhardwaj, good, van Leeuwen, her front giant work looks fine, and she college stuck the dismount. Great routine! 13.966 (5.7, 8.266)

Emma Malewski GER UB: 12.233 (5.0, 7.233)

Margaux Daveloose BEL BB: 11.700 (5.1, 6.600)

Josephine Sørensen DEN FX: Only saw that she opened up with a good double tuck, missed the rest. 11.266 (4.2, 7.066)

4:00 am. It looks like things are starting INSTANTLY, I’m having a little bit of trouble with some of the videos but let’s get this going!
