8. Milad Karimi KAZ 12.633

11:00 am. Brody Malone USA HB: One arm front pirouette, clean Cassina, Kolman is strong, layout Tkachev to straddle Tkachev to piked Tkachev, damn okay!!! Blind change to L grip, tak full was a bit late, tak half a little as well, hop full, double double layout, some leg form and a hop back. 14.700 (6.3, 8.400)

He used to do two Tkachev combos for a total of four Tkachevs, and his D was 6.5, and now he just has the one combo with a total of three Tkachevs, D at 6.3. I don’t know what else was added or missing but I assume if he’s planning on doing the three connected and that gives him a 6.3, he’s probably working on something else to add in.

10:57 am. Mathias Philippe FRA HB: Tak half, layout Tkachev with some leg separation, inbar, stalder 1.5 was a little late, tak full, some form, Yamawaki a little close, hop full a little crooked, Rybalko, Endo, he’s doing EVERY circle element hahaha. Full-twisting double layout was lovely! Clean and stuck. 13.666 (5.6, 8.066)

10:55 am. Tin Srbic CRO HB: Kolman caught near his wrists, hop full, blind change, tak half, stalder straddle Tkachev to straddle Tkachv, layout Tkachev, he seems VERY rushed today, front giant full was weak, full-twisting double layout with a step back. Not his cleanest but got through it! 14.333 (5.7, 8.633)

10:52 am. Mitchell Morgans AUS HB: Tak half, not bad, but still a wee bit late, Cassina was a little iffy in the air and caught maybe a little close, Kovacs was better, layout Tkachev also a little high and close, had to muscle out of it, straddle Tkachev, hop full, blind change to full pirouette, tak, dismounts with a double double layout with a step back. 12.900 (5.8, 7.100)

10:47 am. Alexander Myakinin ISR HB: Tak full is pretty late, that’s the mood today, good catch on the Cassina, Kolman to Gaylord II, some leg separation on the latter, tak half, straddle Tkachev, hop full, stalder, and a full-twisting double layout, a little low but mostly clean. 14.100 (6.1, 8.000)

10:44 am. Milad Karimi KAZ HB: Clear hip, Cassina, wild legs, nice Kovacs, right into the Kolman but his timing is a little off and the skill gets a bit messy, he comes flying off. UGH. This is not his meet, he’s either just not done well or finished fourth on events where he has hit! Back on for L grip giants, tak half is a bit late, layout Tkachev, blind change, Endo full was horizontal when it finished, double double layout, some leg form but stuck. 12.633 (5.5, 7.133)

10:41 am. Illia Kovtun UKR HB: One-arm front giant, Yamawaki, stalder, stalder straddle Tkachev to straddle Tkachev, a little close on both I think, layout Tkachev, blind change to L grip, tak full was a bit late, tak half, better, hop full went a little crooked in the air, double double layout with a small hop. 13.400 (5.7, 7.700)

10:38 am. Nikolaos Iliopoulos GRE HB: Layout Tkachev, straddle Tkachev, blind change to L grip, tak full went wild and got messy, Endo full was a little late, tak half, a little short, stalder, full-twisting double layout with a small hop. 12.766 (4.8, 7.966)

7. Mathias Philippe FRA 12.933
8. Ivan Tikhonov AZE 12.866

10:21 am. Brody Malone USA PB: Really quick and clean transitions at the start, so fluid with everything and his handstands are tight. Good work between the two bars as well. Every handstand is GOLD! Double pike with a hop back. A few little things but this was great. 14.466 (5.8, 8.666)

10:17 am. Alba Petisco ESP FX: Tucked full-in, strong, hop back. Arabian double front, little stumble. Switch leap to tour jeté half. Whip to double tuck was deep but she got out of it. Triple wolf turn was a bit wild, I think probably a quarter shy in rotation as well. Switch half into the corner. Double pike, a little low with a hop. Lots of little things in there but as a whole it was good. 12.900 (5.3, 7.600)

Aww, she looked so shocked and overjoyed when her score came in! Happy for her.

10:15 am. Mathias Philippe FRA PB: A little shaky at the start with a couple of elements, Healy from the single rail to both was good, leg form went WILD in a pirouette after that, though. Then he landed his bum on the bar coming down from another pirouette. Cleans up on the next couple of elements, and almost sticks the double front. 12.933 (5.7, 7.233)

10:11 am. Aiyu Zhu GER FX: She’s in a unitard! Good for her. Memmel turn to full turn, the Memmel wasn’t quite where it needed to be in terms of the leg I think, it was pretty low. Between L turn and Y turn. Double tuck is a bit cowboyed. 1.5 to front full, goes low and long in the latter and skids/sits it. Switch to switch half, nice on that. Double L turn to pirouette, nice. Falls back out of the double wolf turn but I don’t think they’ll count it as a fall. Double full, good. 11.233 (4.8, 6.533, -0.1)

10:09 am. Thierno Diallo ESP PB: Front pike up to handstand, nice and clean, a little iffy in a transition, adjusts back to handstand, quarter turn to the single rail has a little check, but everything else is going nicely, Bhavsar and Tippelt both strong, piked double back with a hop. 14.200 (5.9, 8.300)

10:06 am. Claudia Villalba ESP FX: High double pike, small bounce back. Double tuck also strong, small hop forward. Switch leap to switch half, good. Double full, some form in the air and on the landing. Full Y turn. Tour jeté half. Rudi at the end, nice! Switch ring before her ending pose. Good work! 12.000 (4.5, 7.500)

10:03 am. Matteo Levantesi ITA PB: Good pirouettes at the start, everything to a solid handstand except for one that was a little rushed. Healy was strong, giant before the Tippelt, then a Bhavsar, nice. Transition to the single rail, significant break, then he rushed into the double front dismount, stumbling it back and sitting it. 13.433 (6.2, 7.233)

9:59 am. Tisha Volleman NED FX: Quad turn to double turn, and she’s smiling literally at every part of them. When I’m in the middle of just a double my face is the Scream mask. Double tuck is super cowboyed, punches front out of it though! Memmel to illusion. Some typical Dutch tomfoolery with her choreo, love it. 1.5 to tucked barani, oof, comes into the punch really low and crashes it. Double L turn to full spin. Double full with a little hop. Cat leap through to switch half was a nice touch! 12.133 (5.0, 7.133)

9:54 am. Ivan Tikhonov AZE PB: Great handstand early on but think he had a slight hand adjustment, legs went a little wild on a half transition, front tuck half, handstand out of it arches over, half pirouette was bouncy but then went for a hop giant and missed his hands, fall. Ugh! Back on for the double front dismount, good landing. 12.866 (5.4, 7.466)

9:50 am. Anastasiya Smantsar BLR FX: Piked full-in came in a little low but she pulls up and is fine. A little shaky in the double wolf turn, switch leap to tour jeté half. Split jump full. 1.5 to front tuck, punches really low into the tuck and almost sits it, but doesn’t, still going to hurt her a bit. Switch full could be tighter. High double tuck, funny that her last pass had the best amplitude! Best of her landings. 12.400 (5.0, 7.400)

9:48 am. Glenn Trebing GER PB: Good first handstand, basket up to handstand after also good, salto up to handstand, one-arm transition to the single rail, great going back as well, 3/4 turn to the single rail with a kip cast to handstand, always a fave in my book, a few more pirouettes with great finishes in handstand, and a double pike with a good landing! Not the most difficult but VERY well done! 14.300 (5.5, 8.800)

9:44 am. Ana Ogieglo POL FX: Oh my GOODNESS she has “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy” music and did a little Andrews Sisters boogie at the beginning complete with a salute and a march, I’m crying, adorable. This is gonan be so fun. Double tuck is strong. I LOVE THIS. She’s loving this!!! Split ring leap, iffy position. Double full with a hop back. Switch ring is better but also a little iffy, to split ring half, also not quite there with the ring. Has a switch ring half as well! ALL THE RINGS for this kid. Whether they get paid is another story…I think the first one looked good in slo mo and the rest were close but all had little things that made them look slightly off. Front pike half. 11.733 (4.3, 7.433)

9:42 am. Mitchell Morgans AUS PB: Basket to handstand, then again with a half turn, small adjustment, strong transition to the single rail, walks his hands after and then arches over the subsequent handstand, piked double back is stuck. 14.733 (6.1, 8.633)

9:38 am. Lucie Trnkova CZE FX: Good triple wolf turn. Double pike with a lunge back. Switch to tour jeté half. Double tuck, chest a bit forward and a little stumble. Split jump full. Front layout full with a big step forward. 11.733 (4.5, 7.233)

9:35 am. Illia Kovtun UKR PB: Great handstand at the start, lots of perfect transitions between the single and both rails, lots of difficult pirouette skills, he’s crushing it! I can’t even keep up. Arched and didn’t really hold one of the later pirouettes but this was fantastic overall. Great landing on the dismount. 14.966 (6.3, 8.666)

9:32 am. Lucija Hribar SLO FX: Tour jeté half into the corner before her first pass, then opens with a double pike, oh no, a hard fall right on her head. That was terrifying. Her hands KIND of braced her but didn’t absorb too much of the impact. Moves herself off of the mat and then stands up and salutes so she’s like, kind of okay but clearly not like, OKAY okay. Looks like everything kind of hurts her as she walks away and talks to her coach. Poor thing. Seeing medical now but she’s laughing so I’m glad she’s not seriously hurt. 2.300 (0.4, 8.400, -6.5)

Good double full dismount. 13.200 (5.5, 7.700)

9:01 am. Adem Asil TUR VT: Handspring double front pike half, comes down really low and has to take a giant leap forward to keep from putting his knee down. 14.666 (6.0, 8.666)

Second vault is a tsuk double pike, a lot better there, just a big step to the side OOB. 14.500 (5.6, 9.000, -0.1)

8:58 am. Alba Petisco BB: Layout stepout mount, full turn, punch front, a little forward, leg comes up. Sissone to wolf jump, bhs bhs loso with a little bobble, switch to switch half to back tuck, ugh, looked like she maybe missed a foot. Cross split jump half, side aerial, and a double tuck with a small hop, she looks so annoyed! 11.900 (5.5, 6.400)

Second vault is a kaz double, really nice in the air, big lunge back. 14.800 (5.6, 9.200)

Front aerial, side aerial, switch half, little wobble. Front layout full dismount. Good! 12.766 (5.1, 7.666)

8:39 am. Thomas Grasso ITA VT: Yurchenko triple! Big step back but loved seeing that, it was great otherwise. 14.766 (5.6, 9.166)
