Thoughts before bed. Kyla I love you but UPGRADE. Unless you do something you are losing your AA spot to Price. I will take into consideration your mess up on floor ( losing 3 tenths) and your downgrade by 5 tenths on bars but that still puts you behind Ebee by 4 tenths.
Great job Ebee. I will always think your floor is overscored because of the lack of artistry but your beam keeps getting better (work on the leaps) and you deserved this win.
Bailie, you bore me but you are Miss Consistent.
Getting a kick out of Ms Con=geniality Kyla Ross talking to the Canadians. Now she is signing autographs for them still talking. This is why I love this kid. While the rest of the US is chatting by themselves Kyla is running for Mayor of Canada and she has no clue the camera is on her.
Now the other gymnasts have joined the line for Kyla’s autograph and a picture.
Noe the HBIC Canadian is yelling at the VOLuNTEERS to do their job. Biatch.
They took my feed away 😦
Rotation 4- Bars
ZHOU Linlin just had a beautiful beam routine.
Norah was off on all her handstands. I love this angle. (5.7) 14.200
Bailie was short on a few handstands. (5.6) 14.350
Peyton 14.600 (5.9)
Kyla. Kid hit her handstands and this angle shows it. 14.800 (5.9)
Ebee (6.4) 15.000
Nia (5.4) 14.000 ( Short on a lot of handstands)
Rotation 3- Vault
Peyton (29.100) ( 2 events)
Vault was going by quickly so I missed Nia. I only saw Bailie land. Peyton had a short DTY.Kyla had a step on a DTY but a lot of height from this angle. Ebee was a bit short on her Amanar.
Nia (5.8) 15.150
Baile (5,8) 15.300
Kyla (5.8) 15.300
Peyton (5.8) 15.050
Norah (5.0) 14.050
Ebee (6.3) 15.700
USA 177.650 (1) 61.450 (1) 0.000 (3) 58.050 (1) 58.750 (1)
CHN 164.850 (2) 55.750 (2) 56.300 (1) 0.000 (3) 52.950 (3)
CAN 164.050 (3) 0.000 (3) 53.500 (2) 55.150 (2) 55.550 (2)
Rotation 2- Floor
(This is the worst feed of all 3)
Not close enough for specifics. Nia’s looked a little short on her first pass and took two small steps on her last. She is watchable on floor. (5.9 )for a 14.750
Bailie- Short on her double Memmel and a small step on her first pass. Big step on her double tuck. (6.0) 14.750
Kyla missed the leap out of first pass. Big step on double pike. (5.4) 14.150
Ebee nailed the shit out of that double layout but I hate this music. (6.0) 15.00 She nailed her passes and these are the types of floor routines judges like now.
Norah had a 5.2 start value for a 13.950
Elisabeth Black got a 15.000 on beam with a 6.6 start value.
Peyton scratched Floor. How is this team event working because doesn’t that leave the US short a senior floor worker? I guess the team event is both juniors and seniors.
They raised Ebee’s floor score to a 15.100
Ugly ass pink leotards AGAIN.
Rotation 1: Beam
Key hit beam with a low Arabian but got a 6.3 start value for a 14.850.
Ebee has a few bobbles on beam but good for her 14.100 (5.9)
Peyton stayed on beam but missed both connections I saw 14.050 (6.0)
Norah, Big bobble on her punch front and she missed a connection or 2. Not her best but good enough. She reminds me of Shawn but with better leaps and presentation which is lacking on beam these days (6.2) 14.650
Kyla landed short on her dismount and missed her connection to the wolf jump but my feed was bouncy (5.7) 14.450
Nia is last. Hiding her is my guess ? She has a great Arabian but the rest of this is blah (5.8) 14.050
OVERALL the US wasn’t great on beam but for being up first they did okay. Kyla’s execution is saving her once again. China had no difficulty on floor and Canada was killed on bars.
I don’t think I will be doing much live blogging. The competition starts at 10 and I need to get up early tomorrow morning but the above links work and we are currently in the middle of watching the last rotation of the second session.
