4:41 pm. Mixed zone time!

4:38 pm. Emily Whitehead UB: Another hit second half of the routine from her!

Georgia Godwin UB: Also good work from her, tiny step on the dismount but overall pretty clean.

4:36 pm. Eythora Thorsdottir VT: Good DTY!

MyKayla Skinner BB: I missed the flight series but the rest was solid aside from a big bobble on the transverse straight jump full, excellent full-in dismount.

Vera Van Pol VT: Yurchenko 1.5 with a hop back.

4:35 pm. Filipa Martins UB: Caught it from the Maloney to Pak, clean van Leeuwen, great handstand before the giants to the double layout, step back.

4:34 pm. Jade Carey BB: Check on her flight series and a transverse jump. Hit routine!

Gabriela Sasnal FX: Has some fun choreo. Hits her tumbling passes.

Lieke Wevers VT: Spotted on her FTY, step on the landing.

4:32 pm. Ariana Orrego FX: Double layout, nice! Small hop. Double pike, tons of power, big step OOB.

Emily Whitehead UB: Khorkina release was good, hit routine from her just now.

Simone Biles BB: Switch to switch half to back pike, solid. Double double dismount with a step!

Eythora Thorsdottir VT: DTY, chest down but a good landing.

4:31 pm. Nazli Savranbasi FX: Another Bad Guy/Billie Eilish routine, hahahaha…the third of the day! Hit her opening passes. Doubl efull with a hop back.

Suni Lee BB: Wobble on her triple flight series. The rest was good.

4:29 pm. Jordan Chiles BB: Wasn’t typing through this but it was a hit routine, full-in with a step.

4:28 pm. Simona Castro FX: Short out of her Memmel turn at the beginning, double pike was good. Fell on the last pass.

4:26 pm. Grace McCallum BB: Candle mount, really lovely triple wolf turn, and an equally good double, transverse straddle jump half, split leap to side aerial to layout stepout, front aerial, sissone to full turn, little check, nearly stuck the double pike. Excellent!

4:24 pm. Sorry, I keep zoning out at the starts of rotations when they’re just doing skills and not full routines! It’s rotation four now.

4:16 pm. I wasn’t typing during Suni Lee’s full bars set earlier but she did her full-difficulty routine and it was excellent!

4:15 pm. Barbora Mokosova VT: FTY, a little piked with a hop back.

Nazli Savranbasi BB: Off on her punch front, otherwise had a strong set.

MyKayla Skinner UB: Weiler half to Maloney to Tkachev, good, Ray to Pak, van Leeuwen, blind full to Fabrichnova nearly stuck.

4:11 pm. Danusia Francis BB: Looked like she got stuck in her Dominique Moceanu-esque mount, but nothing too serious. Her knee is pretty heavily wrapped so maybe that’s why no vault? Everything else I saw looked good.

Simone Biles a little swayed in her toe full but regains control easily.

Simona Castro BB: Just ran through a few things, nothing problematic.

4:10 pm. Ariana Orrego still struggling a bit with the side somi.

Good set from Grace McCallum on bars.

4:08 pm. Jade Carey working full-in dismounts on bars.

Eythora Thorsdottir FX: Split ring leap Into the corner before her first pass, triple full, some leg form and a little short in rotation. Step back on her double tuck. 2.5 to front pike is nice.

MyKayla Skinner UB: Maloney to Tkachev with a fall. Back on, the rest looks fine, hop on the Fabrichnova.

Nazli Savranbasi BB: Good flight series.

4:06 pm. Lieke Wevers FX: Hit her opening double tuck. Extension on her leaps is gorgeous. Part of one choreo section looked like she fell? Short on her last pass.

Simone Biles maybe just a little short on her Fabrichnova, took a step.

4:05 pm. Maria Holbura BB: Soft form in her Yurchenko full.

Jordan Chiles UB: Maloney to Gienger and a stuck full-in.

Filipa Martins VT: Big FTY, jumps back out of it.

4:03 pm. Arianna Orrego BB: A little shaky on her side aerial.

Vera van Pol FX: Arabian double front with a step back. Hit the second pass, nice Memmel turn, 1.5 to front full with a hop forward OOB.

Tsuk full from Georgia Godwin.

Gabriela Sasnal BB: Hit her flight series and punch front.

3:57 pm. Lovely floor from Barbora Mokosova. Still no idea what’s happening on bars, it’ll be easier during the competition at least when they’re not all up there crowding the podium.

3:53 pm. A couple of good DTYs from Suni and Grace, Jordan has one with a big step back.

Simone Biles goes for the Yurchenko double pike and rolls back out of it. Does it again with a step back. Casual.

3:52 pm. Simone doing big Yurchenko layout timers, maybe warming up to the double pike, but so far she hasn’t tried it.

3:51 pm. Lieke Wevers BB: Just had a good jump series.

Jade Carey just nailed her Cheng and Amanar!

3:49 pm. Filipa Martins FX: Double tuck, step back.

MyKayla Skinner VT: Amanar, almost gets the landing, takes two little steps to steady it but I can’t believe how good that looks, and that she’s been doing this vault for half her life.

3:48 pm. Georgia Godwin FX: I missed the beginning, but she hit the pass that ended with a front full, and the double pike at the end.

Simone Biles just nailed her Amanar and MyKayla Skinner had a solid Cheng after.

3:47 pm. Danusia Francis UB: Good opening from her on her connections, looked like a forward inbar giant before her Jaeger! Awesome, dismount timer.

3:44 pm. Maria Holbura FX: Memmel turn, full-in, not bad. Double pike straddled with a hop back.

Grace McCallum VT: Muuuuch better DTY!

Sanne Wevers BB: Hit the mount to wolf jump full to back handspring I think. rest of the routine was good, hop back on the dismount.

3:41 pm. MyKayla and Jade both just did Yurchenko timers. Suni Lee struggling a little with her DTY.

Emily Whitehead FX: Lovely opening choreo. Good double tuck. 1.5 to front layout was stuck and clean.

All of the bars group except Danusia are in various shades of red and white, I have NO idea who’s who, hahaha. Think I just saw Gabriela Sasnal hit a double front dismount.

3:40 pm. Eythora Thorsdottir BB: Switch, pause before the side aerial to Korbut, but very pretty series. Front aerial, little check, dances out of it,

Grace McCallum VT: Pretty buckled DTY, big step back.

Jordan Chiles VT: Really strong DTY.

3:37 pm. One of the Wevers off on her mount, I think it’s Sanne…yes.

U.S. still doing timers on vault. And then Simone Biles does an ‘easy’ Amanar.

Danusia Francis is up on the bars podium.

3:33 pm. Moving on to the second rotation!

3:27 pm. Georgia Godwin BB: Good mount into her leap series, triple wolf turn, side somi, the rest is strong!

3:26 pm. Jade Carey FX: Moors, really strong, hop back. Front layout through to double double, solid! Leap into the corner was a bit short. Full-twisting double layout, not bad, little form things, hop back on the full-in. Overall great work.

Emily Whitehead BB: Just fell on an acro element, the rest I saw was good, 1.5 dismount solid.

3:25 pm. Barbora Mokosova BB: Hit everything I saw in her current set, clean gainer pike dismount.

3:23 pm. MyKayla Skinner FX: Tour jeté full, Moors looked better than basically ever?? That was good. Double double with a step back. Double wolf turn, tiny steps on the full-in, hop full L turn to switch half, front tuck through to 2.5 with a step forward. Really strong work from her.

3:22 pm. Dutch still struggling a bit, just saw another fall on a release, still hard to see who’s going up when.

Filipa Martins BB: Full L turn with a wobble and a fall.

3:21 pm. Simone Biles FX: Triple double with a step back. Biles to stag was good. Hop back out of the front layout through to full-in. Good on her leaps. Double double with a step back.

Maria Holbura BB: Front aerial good, really starddled double pike.

3:18 pm. I see Danusia Francis walking around the arena but not on the vault podium.

Jordan Chiles FX: Full-twisting double layout, good! Double layout, chest is low but solid landing. Good front double full. Double pike, maybe a little buckled, but overall strong!

Larisa Iordache BB: Had a few little bobbles but nothing major in the set I just saw.

Just happened to look over at the Netherlands as someone was falling off the low bar.

Keep seeing a handspring front pike half on vault that looks very nice, I think it’s either Ariana Orrego or Gabriela Sasnal.

3:16 pm. Suni Lee FX: Hop back on the double double. Double layout, some leg separation but a good landing. Switch ring to tour jeté half. 1.5 to front full with a step forward OOB. Double tuck a little cowboyed with a hop.

Good beam work from Emily Whitehead just now. Georgia Godwin nailed her flight series. Double wolf turn was good.

3:14 pm. Grace McCallum FX: Double double with a small hop back. Front layout to front double full with a skid. Switch ring, low back leg, to tour jeté half. Stuck the full-in. Double tuck with a hop back. Mostly good!

Again hard to see bars so I’ll try to spot what the Dutch are doing if I can.

3:10 pm. It’s starting! U.S. women in black with a rose gold accent and it’s everything.

  1. What does adding the double layout bring Suni’s FX D score to now? Also, she is definitely sticking with the double full off beam? (I so want her to put the double back back in if her ankles can handle it!)


    • 0.3 higher on her D. I think up to 5.8 now. She was getting 13.9 at trial so she definitely could now be in the low 14+ on fx
