1:53 pm. Jake Jarman ENG HB: Big layout Tkachev, straddle Tkachev, blind change to tak almost to perfect handstand but he has a bend in his hips, Endo, stalder, full-twisting double layout, almost stuck! Tiniest wobble in place.

1:50 pm. Felix Dolci CAN FX: Front full to piked double front, bends his knees a bit and I think ends up OOB. Double double is great, stuck! Front layout to randi. Double front, big hop forward. 2.5 to barani, tucked his legs, maybe meant to do that? Triple full, almost short but gets it around! They need to drop a 10.45 so I think they’ll definitely manage that! 13.450

1:48 pm. Jesse Moore AUS PH: Scissors, a couple of one arm circles, flairs are great, circles, ugh, came off right near the end. Back on to travel back and forth before the dismount, good landing. 13.500 (6.1 D)

1:46 pm. Joe Fraser ENG HB: Tak half is a little late, right into the Kolman, nice. Cassina was a little low and long, layout Tkachev, blind change to one-arm front full, tak full is almost perfectly to handstand, stalder, double double layout, some form in the air, but stuck! 14.500 (5.8 D)

1:45 pm. Tyson Bull AUS PH: Scissors transition went well, mostly clean on everything after that, a little bit of a break going into the dismount, but it’s nothing bad, solid landing. 12.800

1:44 pm. Kenji Tamane CAN FX: Front double full to barani, little bounce, double front with a hop forward, double full, triple full with a step back. 12.650

1:41 pm. Giarnni Regini-Moran HB: Tak half, Kovacs, layout Kovacs, tak full was a little late, huuuuuge full-twisting double layout, big step back but he held it up. 13.350

1:38 pm. Hamish Carter SCO FX: Piked double front, put his hand down at the end of the second pass, a randi maybe? 11.800

1:35 pm. Mikhail Koudinov NZL HB: Had a fall on a release but hit the rest. 11.650

1:29 pm. Jorden O’Connell Inns NZL HB: Missed a release and rolled out from the fall sadly! Got back on and caught a Tkachev, full-twisting double layout dismount with a step.

Marios Georgiou CYP PH: Hit routine! Looked like he hit his hips or something? He’s like, in pain for sure. Oh, his elbow maybe? No, thumb I think, it looked like he may have dislocated it or something on the dismount? 13.850

1:26 pm. Pavel Karnejenko SCO FX: Piked double front, front double full to barani, 2.5 to front full, triple full to finish was good! 11.60

1:13 pm. Marios Georgiou CYP FX: 1.5 to double front? Or front full to double front. Either way, it was good! Hit the double double after, and a 2.5 to front layout. Double full, and then a triple full, rotation looked a little weird like he went too fast and then too slow but he got it around and the landing was good!

1:11 pm. Cameron Lynn SCO HB: Kovacs, layout Tkachev, straddle Tkachev, blind change to one-arm front full, front half, hop full, double double layout, ugh, to his knees, what a bummer.

1:10 pm. Sorry, had to miss a bit of this because of various goings-on in the arena at classics!

Georgios Angonas CYP FX: Caught most of this and what I saw was fine. 2.5 at the end was a little iffy in his form, wobbly on the landing, but overall good. 11.800

Pavel Karnejenko with a 12.55 on high bar.

1:01 pm. Felix Dolci CAN HB: One-arm front full, tak full, a little late, tak half, huuuuge Kolman, very big Kovacs too, layout Tkachev is a bit piked and he falls. UGH, between this and pommels I’m sad. 12.800

12:59 pm. Joe Fraser ENG PB: Had a big salto early on, bent over in a handstand at one point and arched over another, also a few adjustments near the end, double front half with a bobble. He can be tighter but that was still not bad. 14.600

12:56 pm. James Bacueti AUS FX: I missed his vault earlier, he got a 14.6 there! Front double full to front layout, kinda stuck on his toes, a little wobbly. Double double with a big hop back, looked like he stayed in. Randi with a hop back. Piked double front, some knee form near the end with a hop forward. 2.5 to front tuck full, ugh, put his hand down. Double full. Triple full, loved the way he opened up for that, hop on the landing. 12.100

12:55 pm. Giarnni Regini-Moran ENG PB: Short out of a pirouette, big straddle salto, Tippelt, very nice pirouette near the end, then stuck the double pike! Wow, after that short pirouette at the start this got NICE.

12:53 pm. Clay Mason Stephens AUS FX: Piked double front with a hop forward. Front full to double front, a little cowboyed, but good landing. Double double, tiny hop. 2.5 to front layout, small hop. Arabian double front with a hop. 13.400

12:49 pm. My stream just went to a Max Whitlock and Beth Tweddle interview so I’m trying to find another stream…

12:43 pm. Tyson Bull AUS HB: Cassina, great. Kolman also excellent. Straddle Tkachev, blind change to Yamawaki, blind change to one-arm front full, tak, NOOOOOO, full-twisting double layout was lovely but ended up going way too slow and he crashes it off the mat, I’M VERY SAD. 13.250

12:41 pm. Chris Kaji CAN PB: Way short (almost horizontal) on a pirouette, pike hold, pressed to handstand, a little short on a half pirouette, Tippelt is a bit slow to get there, double front half dismount with a hop. Not his best, sadly.

12:39 pm. Mitchell Morgans AUS HB: Tak half, big Kovacs, Kolman is great, layout Tkachev (some pike), straddle Tkachev, hop full, blind change to Endo, tak, double double layout with a hop back. Excellent!

12:38 pm. Mathys Jalbert CAN PB: Pike hold pressed to handstand, basket to the single rail back to both, got a little iffy in his handstand and general form there, also got muscled on a handstand after, Tippelt was nice, a little cowboyed in the double front, good landing.

12:36 pm. Jesse Moore AUS HB: Stalder Tkachev, layout Tkachev to straddle Tkachev, blind change to tak to front giants, stalder, deep in the double double layout dismount but his feet don’t move!

12:28 pm. Pavel Karnejenko SCO PB: Took him a second to get to handstand on one element early on. The rest was good, double tuck with a hop. 13.800

12:25 pm. Frank Baines SCO PB: Wasn’t watching this closely piked double back with a big step to the side.

Ilias Georgiou CYP HB: Gorgeous routine! Think he stuck the full-twisting double layout dismount too. Cyprus is killing it!

12:23 pm. Marios Georgiou CYP HB: Tak, Tak full, Tak half, huge Kovacs, huge Kolman as well, hop full, blind change, one-arm front full, Endo, hit the dismount! That was great.

12:21 pm. 12.650 for Cameron Lynn on p-bars, and 14.150 for Ilias Georgiou on high bar, I think that’s all I missed from the stream.

Hamish Carter SCO PB: Handstand at the end of the apparatus, basket to handstand before a Tippelt, pike through to handstand, pirouette, hit the dismount with a hop back.

12:19 pm. Okay, I got a stream back. Hope I didn’t miss much!

12:18 pm. Jorden O’Connell-Inns NZL VT: Kaz full with a hop back, foot went OOB. 13.850

My stream just changed to some sport that is not gymnastics.

12:17 pm. Michalis Chari CYP HB: Layout Tkachev, straddle Tkachev caught close which caused the giant after to have tucked legs, full-twisting double layout with a few steps back.

12:14 pm. After three rotations…

12:07 pm. David Weir SCO VT: Oof, goes for a Yurchenko 2.5 but comes up quite short and crashes it. 12.950

12:06 pm. Ethan Dick NZL SR: Pike hold, saltos through to pike hold, press to handstand, hit the dismount, a bit forward but holds on. 12.700 (3.8 D)

12:05 pm. Ilias Georgiou CYP PB: Some ankle separation on a handstand and then a wild pirouette right after. Hop giant is fun. Piked double back is good. 14.300 (5.6 D)

12:04 pm. Mikhail Koudinov NZL SR: I wasn’t typing during this but everything I saw was good, full-twisting double layout dismount. 13.150 (4.4 D)

11:57 am. Felix Dolci CAN VT: Kaz 1.5, big step to the side off the mat. 14.250

11:54 am. Mitchell Morgans AUS PB: Pike through to handstand, good transitions between the bars, Ono, a bit arched in another transition to the single rail, arched and walked a handstand after, and then did the same out of a pirouette, piked double back with a small hop back. Not the tightest he could have been but good hit! 14.500

11:53 am. Jake Jarman ENG SR: Planche, down to iron cross, invert pike through to saltos up to handstand, arched over a bit, arched the next handstand as well, double double with a small bounce back. 13.250

11:46 am. Jesse Moore AUS PB: Front pike through to handstand, walks out of it. One-arm pirouette, Bhavsar, Tippelt, a little muscled. Half pirouette before a double front dismount, a little low with a hop. 13.900 (5.5 D)

11:45 am. Chris Kaji CAN VT: Kaz 1.5 with a hop, good! Really nice form. 14.350 (5.2 D)

11:44 am. James Hall ENG SR: Think he had a planche at the beginning, saltos through to pike hold, presses to handstand, a little short going into the handstand after, arched in the next one, and a low step to the side on the double double dismount. 13.700

11:43 am. Mathys Jalbert CAN VT: He did rings and then IMMEDIATELY vaulted?! That seems wild. Hit an FTY. 13.000

11:41 am. England leads with 82.450, ahead of Cyprus with 82.350.

Canada third and Wales fourth after two.

11:40 am. Waiting for a couple of scores to get the updated standings…

11:37 am. Mathys Jalbert CAN SR: He got super wild in a bunch of his handstands that basically ended up Pak-shaped, and it was a struggle for him to get to the handstand hold at the end too. Full-in half-out dismount with a big hop back. 11.200 (3.6 D)

11:36 am. Giarnni Regini-Moran ENG PH: I just realized I keep typing GBR for ENG. It’s the colonizer in me. He had an iffy start to his routine and looked a little rushed throughout, lots of form breaks but he hit!

11:34 am. Chris Kaji CAN SR: Think he started with a planche through to maltese? Inverted hang out to maltese, inverted hang through to handstand, piked and tucked saltos to iron cross, adjusted a bit to get there, through to iron cross, inverted hang, got REALLY wobbly in a handstand, lots of sway back. Full-twisting double layout with a hop. 14.100

11:33 am. Joe Fraser ENG PH: Scissors to handstand, Russians between the handles, stays on one of the handles for a bit for a few circles and Russians, moves to the end of the horse for Russians, travels, well, and fluid into the handstand, hit the dismount! That was strong. 14.650! I think that’ll take over the lead.

11:30 am. Jake Jarman ENG PH: Had some split legs (kind of straddled) in the middle of his routine but hit! 13.800 (6.2 D)

Felix Dolci CAN SR: I caught the saltos to straddle hold, press to handstand, stuck the double double! He looks low key bummed? 14.400

Sorry, I’m at classics and was just trying to catch some of MAG training so I mentally disappeared from CWGs for a second but will be back on my game soon!

11:27 am. James Hall ENG PH: I missed this but think he hit! 13.800

Jesse Moore AUS VT: Kaz full with a big hop to the side OOB/almost off the mat. 13.550

11:26 am. Clay Mason Stephens AUS VT: Yurchenko double, almost stuck it but lost the fight to hold on and took the tiniest step. Still pretty excellent! 14.250

11:25 am. Australia moving to vault, England to pommels, and Canada to rings.

11:22 am. Jorden O’Connell-Inns NZL PH: Hand placement was a little weird in one of his single handle circles, had a couple of leg separation moments, hit the pirouette into the dismount. 13.200

Good fight for NZL to not count an 8.2! Though they did have to count Koudinov’s fall.

11:20 am. Pavel Karnejenko SCO SR: Maltese, drops to inverted hang back to maltese to iron cross, pike through to inverted hang, double tuck to double pike to straddle hold, swaying a bit there but his form looks good. Press to handstand, swings through to another which needs a little adjusting, as does the one after. Sticks the double double though! 14.200

11:19 am. Ethan Dick NZL PH: Some little things throughout with leg separation and other form breaks, but good flow throughout. Good transition to the handstand before the dismount. 13.400 (5.2 D)

11:17 am. Georgios Angonas CYP VT: Yurchenko double, a little shy in rotation, big step/hop back. 13.800 (4.8 D)

11:16 am. Mikhail Koudinov NZL PH: Scissor to handstand, transitions between the horse and handles, some hip form that got more noticeable near the end, muscled up the press into the dismount and just kind of fell over into the landing. Looked like he got up and did it again getting the actual dismount this time so I guess there’s a fall. 11.550

Just realized Australia only put up three guys on rings so they have to count Morgans’ 10.65.

11:15 am. Hamish Carter SCO SR: Pike hold, slow press to handstand, no big problems there, tuck and pike saltos to handstand, a little shaky, arched over a handstand after, double double with a lunge back. 12.900 (4.3 D)

11:14 am. Marios Georgiou CYP VT: Yurchenko double, clean and flared, small hop back. 14.150

11:13 am. Michalis Chari CYP VT: Handspring rudi, step back OOB on the landing and some form in the air, but not bad.

11:11 am. Cameron Lynn SCO SR: Wasn’t typing fast enough to capture this but hit routine. 13.000 (4.3 D)

Since we missed most of Cyprus on rings, just jumping into say that they counted a 13.35 from Ilias Georgiou and a 12.95 from Marios Georgiou in addition to Sokratis Pilakouris’ 14.4.

11:08 am. After the first subdivision!

4. Canada 38.600
5. Scotland 38.500
6. New Zealand 37.650
7. Australia 36.900
8. Sri Lanka 21.050

11:06 am. Hamish Carter SCO PH: Scissors, circles get super wild and he basically tucks but somehow stays on! Hit his leg on the horse going into his dismount, this was a fight, but another hit! 12.850 (5.3 D)

11:05 am. Sam Dick NZL FX: Piked double front with a big hop forward. Front full to double front, a bit cowboyed, big lunge forward. Hit the next pass. Double full. Arabian double front half, a bit low on that landing. This was a fight but good he didn’t fall.

11:03 am. Sokratis Pilakouris CYP SR: Didn’t type during this but it was a hit! 14.400 (5.6 D)

11:01 am. William Fu-Allen NZL FX: Piked double front with a big hop forward. Front double full to front full. Randi was a little short. Double full. 2.5 to front tuck with a big hop back. Triple full with a step. Really solid overall!

11:00 am. Frank Baines SCO PH: Scissors to circles, some hip bend and legs apart throughout, more form breaks in his legs going into the dismount, but another hit! 12.650 (4.7 D)

10:59 am. Mikhail Koudinov NZL FX: Front layout to double front, a little cowboyed, hop forward. Double tuck with a hop back. Whip to 2.5 with a step forward. 1.5 to front full. Front double full with a big/deep step forward. 12.750 (5.2 D)

10:57 am. Cameron Lynn SCO PH: Scissors through to circles, Russians on the single handle, Russians at the end of the horse, the rest was good, not bad into the dismount! 13.000

10:55 am. Ethan Dick NZL FX: Hit his first pass then an arabian double front with a hop forward. 2.5 to front tuck, slid a bit on the landing and had a big hop back. Stuck the layout side pass. Double full. Triple full was a bit deep with a lunge. 12.400 (4.9 D)

10:53 am. Jesse Moore AUS SR: I wasn’t typing for this, but was a hit, had a couple of adjustments in handstands and a big bounce back on the double double dismount. 13.400 (4.9 D)

10:51 am. Jayson Rampersad CAN PH: Scissors through to circles, one-arm circle was nice, travels in Russians, then back to the single handle for more circles, kinda loses his leg form quite a bit there, pulls it back, travels up and down the horse with some leg form breaks, tbh I don’t know how he fought through that, but he did! 13.250 (5.9 D)

10:48 am. Kenji Tamane CAN PH: Good transitions between the handle and the horse. Russians through the middle of the handles and he loses his leg form a bit. Good fight getting it back together. Russians at the end of the horse, travels, bends his legs going up into the dismount and there are other form breaks there as well, but a hit routine. 13.300 (5.6 D)

I missed James Hall on floor, he had a 13.250.

Felix Dolci had a 10.6 on pommels.

10:46 am. Giarnni Regini-Moran ENG FX: Piked double front half, stuck it! Then a good double double with just a baby step. 2.5 to front layout to rudi, love that! Clean double full down the length. A little shaky in the Japanese press. Double front, looked tucked at first and then a bit weirdly piked? I think he just opened up early, toes hit right on the line. Hit the last two passes as well, I think the last was a triple but I wasn’t paying super close attention. 13.850

10:45 am. Mitchell Morgans went up on rings but only scored around a 10 something.

Clay Mason Stephens AUS SR: Inverted hang through to double tuck and pike saltos to pike hold, swung a bit in a handstand at the very end, and then stuck his dismount (double double IIRC) on his toes.

13.750 for Jake Jarman on floor.

10:43 am. Okay, it only took me TWENTY MINUTES to get a stream working but I’m on the BBC’s stream now, so let’s go!
