6. Adem Asil TUR 14.449
7. Ahmet Önder TUR 14.066
8. Caio Souza BRA 13.683
7:33 pm. Carlos Yulo PHI VT: Kaz double full, super clean, but has a big step OOB off the mat. Maybe a HAIR underrotated. 14.566 (5.6, 9.066, -0.1)
Great handspring double front half, just a small step back. Good for him! Still pains me that he was not in the floor final but he’s happy about that. 14.866 (5.6, 9.266
14.716 average, puts him fourth by 0.017 😦
7:28 pm. Denis Abliazin RUS VT: Handspring randi, arches a bit off the table but straightens out and is pretty clean throughout. Just comes up short on the landing, chest at his knees, big step back. 14.766 (5.6, 9.166)
Tsuk double pike with a big step back, VERY controlled there. That was excellent. Chest also a little hunched over on the landing but not as bad as the randi. Some leg separation in the pre-flight as well, probably 0.3. Ends up with a 14.800 (5.6, 9.200)
7:24 pm. Shin Jea-hwan KOR VT: Kaz 2.5, big leg separation in pre-flight but his leg form in the air is CRAZY good. Actually looks a bit underrotated on the landing, but not fully sideways…feet are though, from the looks of it. Chest forward and feet to the side. Big hop forward OOB. Wonder if they’ll downgrade. Nope! 14.733 (6.0, 8.833, -0.1)
Handspring randi, big hop back, but again his form is excellent, and no questions on whether that one got around! 14.833 (5.6, 9.233)
14.783 average to take the lead!
7:20 pm. Ahmet Önder TUR VT: Handspring double front, a bit cowboyed and a really deep landing, butt probably a centimeter from touching the mat. 13.833 (5.2, 8.633)
Kaz 1.5 with a lunge forward, very clean throughout, just bends his knees in anticipation of the landing. 14.300 (5.2, 9.100)
7:17 pm. Artur Davtyan ARM VT: Starts with a kaz double full, nice and stretched in the air, loses his leg form a bit on the last twist. Comes in a little short and has to hop forward/to the side to control the landing. 14.800 (5.6, 9.200)
Handspring double front half with a small step to the side (I think OOB), excellent overall though! He has the best leg form on these. 14.666 (5.6, 9.166, -0.1)
7:13 pm. Nikita Nagornyy RUS VT: Handspring double front half-out, step back, but chest position was excellent. Cowboyed in the air of course. 14.833 (5.6, 9.233)
Tsuk double pike second vault, just a hop back! Slightly soft knees but nowhere near enough to downgrade, slight leg separation as well. Excellent final for him. 14.600 (5.6, 9.000)
7:10 pm. Caio Souza BRA VT: Kaz double full for the first attempt, still rotating a little on the landing, large lunge back to control it. Mostly clean in the air but had significant leg separation in pre-flight. 14.466 (5.6, 8.866)
Sits the (very cowboyed) handspring double front second vault. Thanks! I hate it here! 12.900 (5.2, 7.700)
7:07 pm. Adem Asil TUR VT: Excellent handspring piked double front half-out! Pike shape is pretty great, just a little low on the landing with a small hop back. 15.266 (6.0, 9.266)!!! That was a STATEMENT vault.
Second vault, a tsuk double pike, hands down. I would like to die right now. 13.633 (5.6, 8.033)
7:06 pm. The vault final is about to start! Time to panic!

8. Viktoria Listunova RUS 12.400
6:34 pm. Jennifer Gadirova GBR FX: Love her sassy opening. Full-twisting double layout, really piked down at the end and a super low landing. Split jump full. Double layout super deep. Switch ring to tour jeté half, some leg form on the ring leap. Switch leap full. Front layout through to double tuck, clean with a hop.
13.233 (5.1, 8.133)
6:30 pm. Rebeca Andrade BRA FX: Front full through to tucked full-in, two big steps back OOB. Stuck the full-twisting double layout cold. Switch full. Y turn to stag, love that so much. Small hop on the double layout. Switch leap through to tour jeté half. Strong in all of her leaps I think. Double pike with a big step back.
14.033 (5.9, 8.233, -0.1)
6:25 pm. Murakami Mai JPN FX: I think a Memmel to start before her tumbling, not super controlled at the end, excellent double double. Great double layout, tiny hop back. 2.5 to front full, nails it. Tour jeté half to switch ring, love this section of music, I think a double pike to finish, couldn’t see her legs from this angle but another SOLID landing. I love Melnikova but kinda NEED Murakami to jump ahead…
14.166 (5.9, 8.266)
6:19 pm. Vanessa Ferrari ITA FX: Stuck the double double, maybe a slight tiny slide but looked SO solid. Whip to full-in, gets some wonky leg form but again SO nails that landing. Switch full to ring full, a little iffy in the leg form on her Memmel turn. Tour jeté full. split jump full. Gonna cry right about now…front layout through to double tuck with a small hop back. B E A U T I F U L. Give her all the medals.
14.200 (5.9, 8.300)
6:15 pm. Angelina Melnikova RUS FX: I love the bell ringing at the beginning of her routine, it’s like the Saved by the Bell theme song. Full-twisting double layout, strong landing, some leg form and maybe a little buckled. Double L turn to double pirouette. Double layout is great, small hop. Switch leap to switch ring half. Front double full to beat jump. Wolf turns are both good. Double pike…strong landing! Slightly soft knees. High-fives Jade Carey when she gets off the podium.
14.166 (5.9, 8.266)
6:11 pm. Jessica Gadirova GBR FX: Double double, a little short with a small step forward. Switch full. Double layout, some knee form but very strong landing. Switch ring to tour jeté full, slight lack of control on the landing but not bad. Lovely Popa in the corner. Front layout full through to double tuck, stuck. Fantastic job!
14.000 (5.6, 8.400)
6:06 pm. Jade Carey USA FX: I wish the red stripes on this leo continued down the arms in some way. Otherwise I love it. Full pirouette into the corner. Moors, some leg form, small hop back. Front layout through to double double, two small steps back. Hoda got on her feet for that. I love that I can see Hoda to my left and floor to my right simultaneously. Solid landing on the full-twisting double layout. Small hop on the full-in. Strong set, good landings, she’s happy with that.
14.366 (6.3, 8.066)
6:00 pm. Viktoria Listunova RUS FX: Double layout, bounced back OOB. Kind of stumbled around I think a Memmel turn, then completely just collapsed on the triple full, hands down. Clean L turn and wolf turn after. HODA IS CLAPPING ALONG. 2.5 to front tuck is clean. Switch ring, to tour jeté half. DANCE BREAK! Hop forward on the double tuck. She definitely looks a little bummed, obviously.
Really long wait for her score…
12.400 (5.2, 7.300, -0.1)
5:59 pm. Viktoria Listunova up now!

8. Arthur Zanetti BRA 14.133
5:28 pm. Adem Asil TUR SR: Invert hang to maltese to iron cross, double tuck to double pike to Iron cross, little nod, invert pike through to planche, a little muscled, strong handstand position, slight sway in the next one but corrects, rough form on his double double layout dismount, lands low with a hop to the side.
14.600 (6.2, 8.400)
5:24 pm. Eleftherios Petrounias GRE SR: I wasn’t typing, but he was solid at the beginning on multiple maltese and planche transitions, held his iron cross elements well, good handstands, really the only glaring error was when he came a little low out of his dismount and had to hop it. I don’t think that’ll be enough for gold.
15.200 (6.3, 8.900)
5:20 pm. Samir Aït Saïd FRA SR: Maltese pressed right up to handstand, his new skill, amazing but he seemed really rushed out of the maltese and only held it for a fraction of a second. Planche through to maltese, a little swayed and muscled in a handstand, double pike to maltese, iron cross, opens his palms, planche, drops a little in it, then a little muscled on the handstand after. Full-twisting double layout with a small hop.
14.900 (6.3, 8.600)
5:16 pm. Ibrahim Colak TUR SR: Planche through to maltese, drops to invert hang, up to planche, good shape and control, double tuck to double pike to maltese, looks nice from my angle, through to iron cross, invert hang through a pike up to iron cross, big grin, LOL. A little muscled in a handstand before his front double pike, small hop back. Beautiful.
14.866 (6.2, 8.666)
5:13 pm. Denis Abliazin RUS SR: Maltese to invert hang back to maltese, to invert hang, double tuck to double pike to planche, knees apart in the saltos and planche angle isn’t straight, hit something after that but I already forgot, handstand good, second handstand a little crooked and shaky, double double layout with a small step.
14.833 (6.3, 8.533)
5:09 pm. Liu Yang CHN SR: Invert hang pressed through to maltese then through to planche, so controlled. Hangs down then presses up to an invert cross, front double pike through to iron cross, invert pike to double front tuck to maltese, through to iron cross, ROLLS HIS NECK aksdfjal;sdkj what a cocky son of a bitch. I love the guys that do this, but I don’t think anyone does it better than him. Double double dismount stuck with his chest down. Fantastic routine.
15.500 (6.5, 9.000)
5:06 pm. You Hao CHN SR: I wasn’t typing at the beginning but everything looked nice, iron cross to invert hang, maltese to invert hang to invert pike, swings up to handstand, a little shaky, double layout form was wonky, saltos through to iron cross better, had a slight muscle in a handstand near the end, double double layout form is not great and he’s staggered on the landing but that was a hit routine, I suppose! Don’t think he’ll do much better in execution compared to prelims…
…except he does. Four tenths I think!
15.300 (6.6, 8.700)
5:02 pm. Arthur Zanetti BRA SR: Maltese down to invert hang up to planche, noticeably muscled but holds it well, through to maltese, invert pike up through to his saltos, leg form on the pike was a little iffy, iron cross, pike through to iron cross, way arches over a handstand, came up short on his dismount and had a hard fall, OOF, that a triple back, that was terrifying.
14.133 (6.5, 7.633)
5:01 pm. The men have been introduced for rings! Getting ready to go shortly.
