Gymnasts currently leading for the Olympic berths are in bold!

9:37 am. Waiting on final standings for this subdivision!

9:35 am. Naomi Visser NED FX: Triple full to punch front tuck, pretty solid. Triple L turn to double spin. Memmel to illusion I think after that. Double tuck, hop back. Switch to tour jeté half. Switch half. Double full is a little underrotated with some forward movement.

9:29 am. Tisha Volleman NED FX: A little more wild than usual on her quad to double turns, but that still blows my mind, double tuck to front tuck, a little iffy in her leg form, messy legs on her twisty pass after. 

More AA – Alice Kinsella 53.090, Phoebe Jakubczyk 50.365, Anastasiia Motak 49.066, Lilli Habisreutinger 48.533, Ofir Netzer 47.832, Anina Wildi 47.599

9:26 am. Ofir Netzer ISR FX: Had a really solid opening pass but crashed her double pike to her knees, sadly. Finished with a double full, good rotation, just a little low with a hop to the side.

Alice Kinsella GBR BB: I caught it from her jump series, which was close to the end as it turns out. Double pike with her chest down and a step. 

9:25 am. Some AA scores…Carolann Heduit 53.599, Anastasiia Bachynska 52.065, Elina Vihrova 51.499, Maisa Kuusikko 51.199, Ada Hautala 50.898, Sheyen Petit 50.599, Csenge Bacskay 50.265

9:23 am. Phoebe Jakubczyk HUN BB: Solid on her flight series. Double turn, nice! Also hit the dismount.

Noga Shalit ISR FX: Saw a good double tuck from her and some nice leaps. Front tuck through to 1.5, some leg form on the 1.5. 

9:22 am. Lilli Habisreutinger SUI VT: Handspring front pike half. Not bad on the landing. I love that I somehow saw ALL of her routines today!

9:18 am. Anastasiia Motak UKR FX: 3.5 to front tuck, goes too far and lands OOB but daaaaaamn. 1.5 through to…couldn’t tell if it was a triple or double from this angle but if I had to guess, it was a triple! Landed well, too. Double tuck, not the best landing but not bad either. Stuck the 2.5 at the end. Damn girl!

9:17 am. Carolann Heduit FRA BB: Hit everything at the beginning but I wasn’t typing skills. Front aerial, doesn’t connect to something out of it. Double wolf turn, good. Double full with a big lunge.

9:14 am. Sheyen Petit FRA BB: Candle mount, front aerial to split jump, bhs loso loso, big wobble but fights and manages to stay on. Leap series to Korbut, nice. Wobbled on the side aerial. Transverse split jump half, side somi. Hit the dismount.

Bachynska UKR FX: Tucked full-in at the beginning I think. Arabian double front, solid landing! Just some legs in the air. Hit a leap series before her third pass, a really solid double pike. Switch full-ish before her last pass, a double tuck, lunge back. Excellent! Shame about the bars fall. 

9:10 am. Gudrun Hardardottir ISL UB: Simple but solid routine to start the rotation!

Elina Vihrova LAT BB: Only saw the second half but she hit that. 13.233 (5.2, 8.033)…should put her into first HAHA?!?! YESSSSS!

Mali Neurauter NOR UB: Hit routine, dismounted with a toe front tuck half.

9:06 am. Final rotation warmups! Bacskay holds the lead on vault, Bachynska jumps into the lead on beam, and Urazova is still reigning on bars and floor.

9:03 am. Naomi Visser NED BB: Started out decently but then really struggled on both of her transverse jumps, big wobbles. Side aerial to bhs was clean. Hit the rest.

8:59 am. Tisha Volleman NED BB: Of course my stream went down the SECOND SHE STARTED. I assume she did the Erceg? Now the person filming on IG live just cut away from her and went to floor. Who can I sue for my emotional distress from today? IG live person just went back to her after the routine ended. Thanks!!!! I hate it 11.733 (5.3, 6.433)

Anina Wildi SUI FX: Hit her first pass. 

8:56 am. Lilli Habisreutinger SUI FX: Double pike with a hop back, that looked pretty good in the air. Double tuck into a controlled lunge. Switch to switch half, angled it a bit down like a sissone but got the split. Front layout to front full with a small hop. Double full. 12.000 (4.4, 7.600)

8:53 am. Noga Shalit ISR BB: Wolf turn at the beginning, side aerial, a little short, switch half, flexed feet and a wobble, front aerial with a break at the hips, another break at the hips on her bhs loso but she fights and stays on, side somi, also a big break but she is fighting on EVERYTHING. 1.5 with a step.

8:51 am. Alice Kinsella GBR UB: Toe half to piked Jaeger, good, Ricna to Pak, clean on both, Maloney to Gienger, a little close to the bar, toe full is late, to half-in double front I think, stumbles it forward a bit, but it was going well until the dismount! 13.166 (5.8, 7.366)

Ada Hautala FIN FX: 12.333 (5.1, 7.533, -0.3)

Juliane Tøssebro NOR VT: 12.733 (4.0, 8.733)

8:49 am. Ofir Netzer ISR BB: Hit her flight series. Transverse straddle jump half. Hit the dismount. I think she’s just coming back from a big injury…good for her, a nice hit routine. 11.200 (4.5, 6.700)

Phoebe Jakubczyk GBR UB: Came off on something at the beginning that I missed and also sat her dismount. I always end up seeing the mistakes on literally every routine where I miss most skills. 11.466 (5.4, 6.066)

8:47 am. Maisa Kuusikko FIN FX: Finally getting to kind of see her on the IG live! Hit the opening, step out of her front full. I love her music so much, it’s very 2004 in a good way. Solid double pike at the end. CAN WE FIGURE OUT HOW TO GET HER TO TOKYO. 11.700 (4.7, 7.000)

Csenge Bacskay HUN UB: Hit everything I saw, was a bit low on the double layout.

8:46 am. Anastasiia Motak UKR BB: Front handspring front tuck, little bobble, a little short on the switch to switch half but her jumps after are great, good toe point on the split jump. Front handspring to front pike, FALL. NOOOO. Triple full with a step to the side. 11.700 (5.3, 6.500, -0.1)

8:44 am. Carolann Heduit FRA UB: Stander full to Maloney to Ricna, piked Jaeger, Ray to Pak to van Leeuwen, blind change to double front, wild with a hop forward. SO much in there, a little rushed on some elements, and form isn’t always there, but she’s doing THE MOST! 13.466 (5.9, 7.566)

8:40 am. Sheyen Petit FRA UB: Hindorff, just bent her knees a bit, Pak, toe-on to van Leeuwen, more knee bend, piked Jaeger, crashed her double layout dismount, just not enough height. 11.900 (5.2, 6.700)

Anastasiia Bachynska UKR BB: Front handspring to front tuck is great, missed her leap series connection so did a split jump out of her switch half, front aerial to a not cute split ring jump. Switch ring also isn’t there at all. Double tuck, chest down with a step. Well, she stayed on! 13.133 (5.6, 7.533)

8:39 am. Elina Vihrova LAT UB: Stalder to Chow to Pak, good. Maloney to bail, a little sway, to Ray, blind full, blind change to straddle Jaeger, and a double pike with a hop. She’s fab.

8:34 am. Bilge Tarhan TUR FX: Front pike through to double tuck, a little buckled with a hop. 

Sara Sulekic CRO BB: Split leap to wolf jump, big pause into her bhs loso, she’s learning from Motak being in her rotation group. Fall unfortunately. Then I lost all of the streams. 🙂 On the IG live, saw her hit a front aerial and a side somi but then the camera decided to go somewhere else. Cool cool cool. 9.741 (4.5, 5.341, -0.1)

Arina Olenova LAT UB: 8.708 (2.0, 6.708)

Gudrun Hardardottir ISL VT: 12.466 (4.0, 8.466)

8:30 am. Of note, Csenge Bacskay now leads vault with a 13.766 average! Urazova still tops the other three, no other big moves yet aside from Heduit moving into the third spot on floor.

8:29 am. Moving on to the touch warmup for rotation 3!

8:26 am. Lilli Habisreutinger SUI BB: I missed the beginning, side somi, transverse straight jump full, bhs with bent knees to loso, straighter knees there but has a big wobble with her leg up. Full turn, transverse split jump half. Hit the dismount.

Phoebe Jakubczyk GBR VT: 13.333 (4.6, 8.733)

8:25 am. Tisha Volleman NED UB: Van Leeuwen, blind change to piked Jaeger, clean, bail to toe shoot, can’t kip to handstand so has to take an extra swing after that, clear hip to clear hip full to full-in, a little messy with a step back.

8:21 am. Lucija Hribar SLO BB: Wobble on the bhs mount, off on her flight series, a bhs back tuck. Hit a side somi. Switch leap, missed connection to split leap so added a split jump but it’s a bit rough. 

Sara Peter HUN VT: Hit her DTY! 14.066 (5.4, 8.766)

Ofir Netzer ISR UB: Maloney to Gienger and a double pike, good routine. 11.766 (4.8, 6.966)

Sorry about the lack of scores, the site isn’t autorefreshing for me so I’m missing most. 

Ada Hautala FIN BB: 12.466 (4.9, 7.566)

Maisa Kuusikko FIN BB: 12.133 (4.7, 7.433)

8:20 am. Anastasiia Motak UKR UB: Maloney, flies off on the back swing, face plants onto the mat. LORD. Pak, van Leeuwen, horizontal on the “handstand” before the inbar to inbar half to Jaeger, double layout with bent legs. 11.000 (5.2, 5.800)

8:16 am. Anastasiia Bachynska UKR UB: Stalder full, a bit rushed, to Maloney to Pak, some feet form there, van Leeuwen, mostly good, toe full with some leg form breaks to Tkachev, a little low. Short handstand before her blind change to piked Jaeger, UGH, FALL! Stream cut out after that.

Csenge Backsay HUN VT: I saw the landings on both of her vaults but didn’t see what she did. Assume the first was a Yurchenko 1.5 based on where she faced while landing.

8:13 am. Sara Sulekic CRO UB: Ughhhh, came off just as she started her routine, I didn’t see what…then went for a Nabieva! Missed her hands but got huge air. Beautiful Pak, then missed her van Leeuwen. She’s SO clean on her easier elements and is clearly trying to become more competitive with bigger difficulty but needs to find more of a balance.

Sheyen Petit FRA VT: FTY, not huge, but not bad. Step back. 

Juliane Tøssebro NOR FX: Only saw her opening double pike, which she stuck COLD! 12.100 (4.5, 7.600)

8:10 am. Gudrun Hardardottir ISL FX: Double tuck, hop back OOB. Front layout with a couple of steps. Layout full to finish. Some lovely work with her choreo!

Elina Vihrova LAT VT: Solid FTY, small scoot back.

Bilge Tarhan TUR BB: Punch front mount, good! Nailed the layout series, small step back! Fab. Transverse split jump half a little low. Break at the hips on something after that, switch to wolf jump, wobble on the front aerial, low double pike, but this is a fab routine.

8:08 am. Arina Olenova LAT VT: Good handspring front tuck. 

Margret Kristinsdottir ISL FX: Double tuck hop back. Hit a leap series after with no problems. Step out of the front full. 

Cemre Kendirci TUR BB: Candle mount, off on her bhs loso. Short on a split jump after that, then came off again.

Christina Zwicker CRO UB: Blind change to piked Jaeger, nice. Split legs on her Pak. Toe half, toe-on to Ray back to the high bar, off on her straddle Jaeger, noooo! Back tuck from handstand for her dismount. 

8:06 am. Naomi Visser NED UB: Nice handstand before her Derwael-Fenton (!!!) to Ezhova, but drops her feet on the latter. Legs came apart on her toe full but she STAYED IN HANDSTAND with her knees bent for a solid three seconds and kept going?! Maloney to Pak, van Leeuwen, hit the dismount. 11.933

8:03 am. Anina Wildi SUI BB: Hit her mount and a split jump to wolf jump. Off on her bhs loso. Hit a switch half, and a 1.5 dismount. 

Alice Kinsella GBR VT: DTY, some leg form and a step back.

Mali Neurauter NOR FX: Hit a double back to start. Switch to switch full. Rudi. 

7:58 am. Going into the second rotation and I haven’t stabbed anything in my apartment yet! I have the bars and beam streams working on my computer plus the IG Live so hopefully this will be a bit more entertaining but I wouldn’t bet on the UB/BB streams staying up!

7:55 am. Csenge Bacskay HUN FX: Tucked full-in, hop back. Hit the next pass into a front tuck. Layout full to split jump, a little iffy on the landing. Hit the last pass. 11.866

7:53 am. Sara Peter HUN FX: Double layout, great landing. Sat the arabian double front though, ugh! 2.5 looked REALLY nice from this view. I love her music. I missed the last pass. 10.766 (5.0, 5.766)

Maisa Kuusikko FIN UB: 13.566 (5.8, 7.766)!!!!!!!!!! YES MAISA!!!!! Wish we could have seen this.

Lucija Hribar SLO UB: 12.266 (4.4, 7.866)

Lara Crnjac SLO UB: Maloney to bail to toe shoot, arched over and came off. 10.400 (4.2, 6.200)

7:52 am. Carolann Heduit FRA FX: 13.100 (5.1, 8.000)

7:51 am. IG LIVE IS UP. JFC.

7:49 am. More scores…still nothing from any feeds.

Sheyen Petit FRA FX: 12.833 (4.8, 8.033)

Ada Hautala FIN UB: 12.766 (4.9, 7.866)

7:46 am. There’s no IG live either, so hopefully they’ll bring that back soon before I start throwing things!

7:45 am. Some scores since we CAN’T SEE ANY FRIGGING ROUTINES.

Elina Vihrova LAT FX: 12.266 (4.6, 7.666)

Noga Shalit ISR VT: 12.700 (4.0, 8.700)

7:40 am. Cemre Kendirci TUR UB: Saw a blind change and nothing else, naturally. 8.700 (4.1, 4.600)

Margret Kristinsdottir ISL BB: I saw a few skills, switch half and side somi were both good. 10.966 (4.6, 6.466, -0.1)

7:38 am. Arina Olenova LAT FX: Double tuck to start. 1.5 with a step. 

Anastasiia Motak UKR VT: Didn’t see it. DTY. 14.033 (5.4, 8.733, -0.1)

Anina Wildi SUI UB: 11.833 (4.2, 7.633)

7:37 am. All of the streams are now down. 🙂 They’re intermittent again but this is AWFUL.

7:36 am. Anastasiia Bachynska UKR VT: Missed this due to the stream being down. 13.833 (5.0, 8.833)

Gudrun Hardardottir ISL BB: Good bhs loso! Switch to switch half, stumble there. 11.666 (4.7, 6.966)

7:34 am. Alice Kinsella GBR FX: 1.5 through to triple full, a little wild on the landing, steps back to control it. Looked like she was going for a triple turn in front attitude, got a little stumbly near the end. 2.5 to front full, a little short, skids back with a step. Tour jeté half through to switch full, legs looked a bit weird but I think it’s the angle we have more than her. Double pike with a step back. 13.033 (5.1, 7.933)

7:33 am. Juliane Tøssebro NOR BB: Off at the start of her routine. Hit a bhs layout, a little piked and her leg came up, cat leap to split jump, side somi, little check. Side aerial is solid. Slight hip adjustment. Double full with a step back. 10.900 (4.4, 6.500)

7:32 am. Naomi Visser NED VT: Hit her FTY, solid.

Lilli Habisreutinger SUI UB: Came off after a toe full on the low bar and then again, I think on a Maloney but I wasn’t paying super close attention. 12.000 (4.4, 7.600)

Sara Sulekic CRO VT: Ugh, crashed a handspring front pike half I think.

7:30 am. Mali Neurauter NOR BB: Switch leap to split leap, front walkover to side aerial, nice! Small check on the side somi, hit a transverse half after. Back walkover to split, love it! She’s crushing it. Front gainer full dismount I think. FANTASTIC! This was a highlight routine honestly. 12.000 (4.6, 7.400)

Phoebe Jakubczyk GBR FX: OOB on here arabian double front. 1.5 through to 2.5, steps out of it. Double tuck to finish. Good start! 12.866 (4.8, 8.066)

7:28 am. All four streams are up!!! Please lord let this last.

7:27 am. The touch warmup is beginning now. Most notably, the Dutch and Ukrainians are on vault, and then the Brits, French, and Hungarians are on floor. Also Finland starting on bars, pray for Queen Maisa Kuusikko!

7:25 am. So, I’m going to say prepare yourself for shady trash streams this subdivision as well. They were working fine throughout the break, but starting at around 15 minutes prior to the subdivision beginning, the good old “this video file cannot be played” error messages came back on all four. At the current moment in time, the bars, beam, and floor streams are up but vault is down.

The streams are here, FYI, as are results, but there should also be a live stream on Instagram.

  1. It would be fine if they simply said: sorry, we will not be live streaming because we can’t be bothered (or whatever reason that they want to give). But this thing where they promise a stream so you plan your day around it and then they don’t deliver is truly shitty.

    Did they not anticipate that people might want to watch the stream if it is provided?


    • +1
      That’s what you call a total mess for sure. Too many useless people involved there (UEG ?) I presume.
      I am going to send an email for sure
      It should have been ok because for the 2020 euros it was, definitely

  3. Okay I know Motak fell on beam but can we just acknowledge how much she’s worked on the concentration pauses before her skills? Still not perfectly seamless but a HUGE improvement over euros 2020. Good for her!


    • I know, I was like wow only 1 hour before her dismount instead of like, 60 LOL. I hope she keeps building confidence because she could really be huge for Ukraine!
