Angelina Melnikova RUS UB: Inbar full, ankles apart, to Maloney to Pak to van Leeuwen, inbar half to piked Jaeger, it sounds like the Americans are cheering for her! THEY ARE! Hit the dismount. 14.900
You can hear Simone Biles cheering wildly for her in the background! I love that so much.
8:42 pm. Roxana Popa ESP FX: God I love this routine so much, wobbled on the double layout, double tuck with a hop. I assume out of a front something or other and I just missed it. Switch ring to tour jeté half. Hop forward on the full-in, I think a double pike to finish. 13.133

8:35 pm. Jade Carey USA UB: Church, blind change to Ezhova, caught something to a Bhardwaj, probably a Maloney, then a van Leeuwen, hit the rest, I think a blind full to full-in dismount, stuck it! The full-in is SO CLEAN. 13.500
Simone looked PIIIIIIIIIIISSED while clapping for this. 😦
Edit – I typed this really quickly when they showed her face on the screen in the arena, which they did about a million times because they were really desperate for her reaction shots. Simone looked like she was enjoying herself and was cheering everyone on for the majority of the competition, but this seemed notable to me because I thought of how upset she must feel to not get to be out there competing. I wasn’t insinuating that she was mad at Jade or anything. For the majority of the competition, no one was cheering louder than Simone, but they just happened to show her during a moment where she looked upset, and I felt gutted for her because knowing the kind of athlete she is, I thought about how hard it must be for her to sit back and watch instead of being out there herself. That’s just my conjecture, obviously, but wanted to clarify that it was one out of a million reactions that they showed and I only shared it because I felt bad for her not being able to compete.
Murakami Mai JPN FX: Great double double to start and hit the second pass, small hop on the 2.5 to front full. Hit the rest, great routine! 14.000
Giulia Steingruber SUI VT: Huge rudi, legs are a little messy, big hop back. 14.833
8:32 pm. Tang Xijing CHN BB: Layout stepout mount, beautiful. Perfect on the roundoff layout into a split jump. Slips on her switch ring. Split ring jump I think (from this angle) to Korbut. Everything was SO precise until that fall, UGH. Switch to split ring leap to back handspring, slow in the last connection. Hit a jump series at the end, clean stuck double full. Perfection, then there’s the fall. 13.066
Kim Bui GER VT: FTY, low, small hop back. 13.466
8:30 pm. Carolann Heduit FRA FX: Tucked full-in, small hop. Arabian double front, good landing, and she stuck the double tuck. Double pike, the tiniest bit short. Great routine though. 13.033
Lieke Wevers NED VT: FTY, SO close to the table, mostly clean. 13.266
Rebeca Andrade BRA UB: Maloney to stalder full to piked Tkachev to Pak to van Leeuwen, fab! Blind change to piked Jaeger, very clean, toe full, to full-in stuck! Fantastic. 14.666

Switch to wolf jump, random wobble just turning sideways, LORD, transverse jump, switch half, front aerial slow into a jump before the back handspring, small adjustment, I think a switch ring, full turn, both good, two big steps back on the double tuck. 12.166

8:13 pm. Zsofia Kovacs HUN UB: Inbar full to Chow half, nice, inbar half to big piked Jaeger, I think a Ricna, then a Downie to Pak, van Leeuwen, she’s killing this, full-in with a hop. Yes! 14.233
8:12 pm. Right now Rebeca Andrade has a one-tenth lead ahead of Jade Carey and no one in the bars rotation will outdo that. Angelina Melnikova third, back by about six tenths, but obviously this will change wildly when we get this group to bars!
8:10 pm. Giulia Steingruber SUI FX: Tour jeté full, full-twisting double layout, hop back. Stuck double layout! Double tuck. Step back on the double pike. Must have done a front through to the double tuck. 13.333
Brooklyn Moors CAN BB: Punch front mount, slight check. Leg came up on the front handspring front tuck series. Leap to front aerial to split jump, nice. Lovely full turn. Performs to the judges after, her face is like “I dare you to give me less than a 9.5 for this.” Switch half, bobble. Rudi dismount with a step back. 12.433
Jennifer Gadirova GBR UB: Hit the beginning, I started typing at van Leeuwen, arched over and legs fell apart in her blind full, has to regroup and start her swing over, blind change to piked Jaeger very low. Hit the dismount with a small hop. 12.400

7:59 pm. Rebeca Andrade BRA VT: Cheng, GORGEOUS, college stick, steps out of it after holding for a second. Amazing! Right on the line on the landing. 15.300
7:58 pm. Jessica Gadirova UB: Piked Jaeger, Derwael-Fenton to a messy Ezhova, Maloney to Pak, legs apart, misses connection to the va Leeuwen, has to take an extra swing, blind full, full-in with a hop. 13.666
7:57 pm. Sunisa Lee USA VT: DTY, one of her stronger landings! Nice height and position, basically stuck from the looks of it. Very strong. Leg form is pretty great! 14.600
7:55 pm. Martina Maggio ITA FX: Hit her first pass, second is a front through to double full, no more layout! Hope that means her knee is better. Double pike with a hop. Hop back on the double tuck as well. 13.000
Alice D’Amato ITA BB: Off on her flight series. Switch to split leap to a jump, wobble, got the double wolf turn around, good transverse jump, triple full, short, steps back. 11.633
7:54 pm. Touch warm-up going well so far, I just saw a good DTY from Rebeca Andrade, so I assume she’s doing that, though I hope she does the Cheng? Maybe she warmed both up just to get a feel.
7:53 pm. Actually the Russian leos are a little deeper than Nastia pink. But I love it.
7:48 pm. The athletes have just marched out!
Russians have busted out the Nastia pink.
