Bulls in a China Shop

That is what we are now calling the Chinese Nationals. I guess it is better to fall all over the place now instead of in July but a lot of these falls seem more in the head related than gymnastics related. Looks like some gymnasts do not have their heads in the game.

AA results:

Tan Sixin: 56.600
Shang Chunsong: 55.400
Deng Linlin: 55.300
Huang Qiushuang: 54.550

The rest of this mess you can sort through. Come on Yuyuan Jiang. I want you on this Olympic team. Get your head in the game.

Someone on that message board watched and put the info up. So this info is random.

UB Finalists:

1. Huang Huidan 14.700
2. Tan Sixin 14.450
3. Wu Liufang 14.400
4. He Kexin 14.400 (lower E-score than WLF)
5. Shang Chunsong 14.100
6. Jiang Yuyuan 13.850
7. Sui Lu 13.550
8. Luo Peiru 13.500

    Is Cheng Fei competing?

    • gymtruthteller Says:

      She did vault and floor. a 13 something on floor and I think I read she fell on her DTY

      • JAS4 Says:

        I think if she wants to make the Chinese Olympic team she is going to need to have her old vaulting skills back

        Haha no kidding! I don’t have a good feeling about the Chinese in London this time around. They’re no longer in home court, and unless they exercise major cheating practices (again?) I don’t see them placing in the top two for team finals – bronze at best. If they can’t even make a 15.0 score on bars, what the heck??? They may as well be the US team on that one. I didn’t know Sui Lu did bars; thought she only did beam and floor? I guess the only medals I can envision for China in London are individual event final medals. I don’t think Cheng will have her skills back in time to make the team – even though I am a fan of hers. And Yao Jinnan is also injured – not good.

    Given how solid Romania looked today in Euro quals and these shaky results from China, I think it’s perfectly reasonable to expect the podium in London will be USA, Russia, Romania, and not necessarily in that order.

    Chinese Nationals would have been so much better with Yao Jinnan…
