8. Milad Karimi KAZ 11.266
7:33 pm. Bart Deurloo NED HB: Oh god oh god here we go…Cassina, legs come apart in the air, Kolman, leg form is all over the place and he has a fall. Kovacs is very clean, piked Kovacs also good, moves to L grip for some front giants, tak full very late, tak half better, hop full, legs come apart, double double layout with a big stumble forward.
12.266 (5.6, 6.666)
7:29 pm. Hashimoto Daiki JPN HB: Tak half, a little crooked, Cassina, a little wild, Kolman is a little better, layout Tkachev to straddle Tkachev to mixed grip, YES! Tak full is a little rushed but gets control back, Yamawaki, stalder, hop full, a little iffy in his form there, double double layout deep but stuck. Well, it’ll certainly medal! I don’t know if it was the same quality as some of his 15+ routines here but…we shall see?
15.066 (6.5, 8.566)
7:25 pm. Tin Srbic CRO HB: Front giant full pirouette, stalder 1.5, a little rushed there, stalder Tkachev to Tkachev to layout Tkachev to straddle Tkachev to mixed grip, YES! Good layout Tkachev to mixed grip, clean stuck full-twisting double layout dismount, just a little balance check.
14.900 (6.5, 8.400)
7:21 pm. Tyson Bull AUS HB: Tak half, big Kolman, big Cassina, nice and clean, layout Kovacs also strong, stalder, ugh, weird handstand issue as he did a blind change before the Yamawaki, but he corrected so quickly…and then came off trying to uprise on a front giant, lord. Can we redo this final? Had ANOTHER weird moment in a front giant, but corrected, clean dismount with a step forward.
12.466 (5.8, 6.666)
7:16 pm. Kitazono Takeru JPN HB: Yamawaki to Endo, tak half, Cassina is WILD in the air and he has a hard fall on his back. LORD. Gets it the second try. Then a wild Kolman. German giants get “OOOHHHs” from the crowd. Layout Tkachev, straddle Tkachev, another fall. This truly is a high bar final, isn’t it. Stuck the double double layout.
12.333 (6.1, 6.233)
7:13 pm. Brody Malone USA HB: Huge Cassina, huge Kolman, big layout Tkachev connected to the straddle to mixed grip, amazing so far, layout Tkachev to mixed grip, but then can’t get his tak full around, falls out of it and has to regroup in his swing. Hop full, double double layout with a step back.
14.200 (6.5, 7.700)
7:10 pm. Nikita Nagornyy RUS HB: Caught the first release, I didn’t see what it was, Tkachev to Tkachev to mixed grip, slow to rise out of it but gets there, one-arm front pirouette, the tiniest bit crooked, stalder, double double layout stuck. Imagine if Nagornyy gets his one EF medal of the competition on HB hahaha.
14.533 (6.0, 8.533)
7:06 pm. Milad Karimi KAZ HB: Yamawaki, big Cassina, some leg form, Kovacs, fall. UGH. I’m outta here. He was supposed to connect to Kolman. Back on, off on the Kovacs again. Okay I’m really leaving. Doesn’t bother trying again when he gets up for the second time, just does his pirouette skills and a clean double double layout dismount with a hop.

Roundoff layout with a check. Switch leap, doesn’t connect out of it to the switch side to transverse jumps, gets the transverse connections though.

Full turn, switch to split leap, check at the hips on her bhs loso loso series, switch ring with a big wobble, front aerial to split jump to back handspring solid. Side somi clean. Switch ring is good. Double pike comes up a little short with a step back.
13.133 (5.7, 7.433)
6:25 pm. Vladislava Urazova RUS BB: Layout stepout mount is excellent. Messes up her series, does three back handsprings. Switch leap to full Y turn to 1.5 pirouette, check there. Front aerial with a wobble. Doesn’t connect to split jump to Onodi. Illusion turn with a big wobble. Nice wolf turn, but big break on the side aerial. Leap into a cat leap. 2.5 dismount with a hop.
12.733 (5.0, 7.733)
6:21 pm. Ashikawa Urara JPN BB: Lovely back handspring mount and bhs loso. Hit clean jumps right after. Split ring jump also excellent, maybe a low front leg but I have a bad angle. Switch leap to sheep jump, little check there. Clean side somi. Transverse split jump half, little check. Misses a foot on her switch ring and bobbles but stays on. Side aerial to split jump, solid there. Double spin, a little shaky. Triple full, leg form and a hop.
13.733 (5.9, 7.833)
6:15 pm. Sunisa Lee USA BB: Triple wolf turn and double wolf turn, both super solid. Front aerial to split jump to back handspring, perfect. Switch ring to split leap, maybe a tiny bit slow but still connected I think. Switch leap to switch half to split ring jump, tiniest bobble. Side aerial loso loso, wild stumble, but amazing save. Double full, a little short in rotation with a hop to the side, she was struggling with those all warmup.
13.866 (6.4, 7.466)
6:11 pm. Simone Biles USA BB: Here we go! She looked really strong in warmups earlier today, just a little shaky at first. Hit the double pike dismount well. We’ll see how it goes here…starts with a really aggressive triple wolf turn, slight adjustment. Front aerial to split jump to straddle jump, good. Bhs loso loso with a tiny check. Switch leap to switch half, wobbles, doesn’t connect to back pike. Side aerial, pause. Transverse straddle jump half connected to the split jump half, maybe short on the latter. Double pike with a small hop back. Standing ovation.
14.000 (6.1, 7.900)
6:06 pm. Tang Xijing CHN BB: Layout stepout mount, tiniest hip adjustment. Roundoff layout, looked crooked and legs apart, check. Switch ring, paused into the split ring jump to Korbut. Shapes looked great from my angle but not sure if they’ll pay that first connection. Switch leap to split ring leap to back handspring, excellent. Front aerial to split jump to straddle jump, lovely. Full turn, clean. Double full, college stick, ankle form in the air.
14.233 (6.0, 8.233)
6:02 pm. Ellie Black CAN BB: Hit her mount leap series into a Korbut, strong connections. Double spin to full spin, wobble, ugh, she connected that series right to the straddle earlier in warmups! Straddle jump to wolf jump. Punch front tuck, great. Hits the tuck full series. Tiny adjustment on the bhs layout series. Slight check on the side somi. Basically stuck front layout full dismount. Amazing job!

5:29 pm. Lukas Dauser GER PB: Arched over a handstand at the beginning, but otherwise very precise in his work. Muscled up one handstand slightly, stuck the dismount with his feet apart. That was great.
15.700 (6.7, 9.000)
5:25 pm. Joe Fraser GBR PB: Wasn’t typing during this one, but didn’t see anything major, really strong on his salto elements, just a couple of little things here and there but overall a lovely routine. Great single rail transition and almost a stick on the double front half-out dismount.
14.500 (6.1, 8.400)
5:21 pm. Petro Pakhniuk UKR PB: Clean beginning, piked down on the single rail handstand, the rest nice, big straddle salto, almost fell out of a pirouette between the bars, stuck the dismount.
14.533 (6.1, 8.433)
5:18 pm. David Belyavskiy RUS PB: Clean handstands at the start, gets the pirouettes before his Tippelt, Bhavsar, arches over a pirouette after, front pike salto to handstand, slight arch there, came out of the handstand on the single rail unfortunately, kip cast back up to handstand, then a small hop back on the double front half-out.
15.200 (6.6, 8.600)
5:13 pm. You Hao CHN PB: Great start for him, a few little adjustments on one pirouette, looked a little rushed coming out of a salto into a skill right after, double back pike was clean, Bhavsar, muscled his Tippelt a bit, Ono is very clean, low double front half with a big hop forward.
15.466 (6.9, 8.566)
5:10 pm. Sam Mikulak USA PB: Pike up to handstand gets him off to a nice start, clean pirouette after but then walks around a transition between the bars, rough. Hit some strong saltos and a big Bhavsar, Tippelt was clean and solid, steady handstand out of a pirouette after that, and a hop forward on the double front half-out dismount.
15.000 (6.4, 8.600)
5:07 pm. Zou Jingyuan CHN PB: Lovely handstand at the start, pirouettes are perfect, literally. All of them. Had a slight arch out of one but quickly corrected, big straddle salto, Bhavsar, good, baby step on the double front half, that’ll be huge.
16.233 (6.9, 9.333)
5:02 pm. Ferhat Arican TUR PB: You know how horrible I am at p-bars but I’ll try to capture what I know. Nice handstand at the start, Came really fast out of a pirouette and had to correct a bit early on, holds the next handstand forever and hits the follow-up pirouettes well. Pikes down in the single rail transition and muscles it back up. Just a little tentative throughout. But also slow and steady. Sticks the double front half dismount.
15.633 (7.0, 8.633)
5:00 pm. Getting ready to kick things off on p-bars any second now!
