I am going to post a blog later for the first day of the women competing but I wanted to put something ” in between” while I worked on it. As soon as the new blog is up please discuss all results and opinions of the first day of women’s competition in there. I will be at work tomorrow and if someone could please update Kyla’s performance for me it would be greatly appreciated. I got rid of my phone awhile ago and am taking my boyfriends to work with me tomorrow so I can see how she did.
So lets get started.
Here are the start lists for the next two days of competition. Kyla’s first event is vault. She is up 4th in her rotation. She is up second on bars in her second rotation. Up second on beam in her 3rd rotation and first on floor in her last rotation. Other names I recognize are Sanne Wevers, Kaitlyn Hofland, Siqi Zeng, Huang Huidan, Maegan Chant and Alina Stanila who I only know from the other day. I need to go watch her on youtube.
I expect Kyla to have one of the top 2 on vault, bars and beam and at least top 3 on floor to have any chance being relevant in the AA discussion of this competition. Siqi is amazing when she hits on beam and Sanne Wevers has a decent start value too. I am assuming that Alina Stanila is decent on floor and the North Koreans are always someone to watch when you don’t know their names. There might also be some French girl with a routine we might find out about too. You just don’t know.
Watch this gif and figure out why there is no way in hell that Moors gets this named after her. It is not even close to being laid out.
The US men have done pretty well on day one of competition with Sam in second place 2 points behind gymnastics personified, Kohei Uchimara. Kohei is everything this sport dreams of being but sadly no one else in men or women’s gymnastics got that memo. He amazes me more and more every time I see him.
Brandon Wynn is leading rings. Dalton had some messy vaults and hops on floor and is in danger of not making either event finals depending on who does what tomorrow.Fabian Hambuechen is in sixth in the AA but set up to make some event finals (High bar)
