2014_worldsprelimsday2

First my sympathies Case. I was following the 9th inning on the boys phone when Victor got the double. Guy in next car heard me scream and looked at me like I had 2 heads.

China starts at 11 PM. I will try and Live blog.

If you thought the line up for Russia was weird check the one for Romania. Larissa is only last up on bars. I guess they are trying to build scores and figure Larisa is in one of the last rounds so she will be fine)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Must say I like these Chinese leo’s. White with Red design that probably means something.

Uneven Bars:

1-CHEN Siyi- made a big mistake then fall on pak. (5.5) 11.458
2-SHANG Chunsong- to die for handstands. (6.3) 14.588 (might have hit feet on bar) If not big time screwing
3-HUANG Huidan- Leg Separations but hit routine. ( 6.8 ) 15.333
4-YAO Jinnan- couple messy leg but rest was beautiful. Stuck dismount ( 6.9 ) 15.666
5-TAN Jiaxin- hit routine. Nicely done. Form was near perfect on Chinese channel. (6.9 ) 15.333
(alt BAI Yawen)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Balance Beam:

1- CHEN Siyi- Bobbles, missed connection, short triple twist dismount.( 13.533) (6.9)
2- SHANG Chunsong- A couple missed connections but no huge bobble (6.2 ) 14.633 (inquiry not accepted)
3- Yao Jinnan- did not connect leap series, bobble on sheep, bobble on full turn leg up (6.2 ) 14.900
4- HUANG Huidan- missed something in the middle. Messy through out. Stuck dismount ( 6.0 ) 14.300
5- BAI Yawen- she has some bent knee’s not usually seen in China, 1 big bobble, beautiful connections to start
the routine. (6.2 ) 14.800
(ALT TAN Jiaxin)

China has a 4 point lead at this point but since Vault and bars are next that will change but depending on how they
are scored on Floor there could be a competition brewing for the team.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Floor:

1- CHEN Siyi- triple twist punch front, landed low. Double pike, hands almost down. She is not ready to be here just
yet but in the future watch out. Loads of potential ( 5.7 ) 12.533
2- YAO Jinnan- Almost fall, fall, disaster (5.8 ) 12.633
3- SHANG Chunsong- Messy triple twist, triple turn, 2.5 punch front piked, double pike. Nice routine for her. 13.966 (6.0) a BIT LOW BEING HOW EVERYONE ELSE WAS JUDGED TODAY
4- TAN Jiaxin- Missed most of it trying to count twists. Ended with double tuck ( 5.6 ) 13.600
5- BAI Yawen- We call this hiding a gymnast. Next 12.766 (5.3)
(alt HUANG Huidan)

Petra Filova tried to mount beam with a punch front and missed. Front walk over and off. Short sheep almost off. Punch front. The end

Kyla is going to be knocked out of bars and is 5th removing 2 per Country on beam.

China falls to 3rd with that disaster of a floor rotation. No routine out over 14.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Vault:

1- SHANG Chunsong- Yurchenko piked (5.00) 13.966
2- CHEN Siyi- DTY, Short ( 5.8) Nice form til end 14.333
3- YAO Jinnan- DTY, Stuck but not stuck (5.8) 14.833
4- TAN Jiaxin- DTY, Small step but nicely done. 15.133
5- BAI Yawen- 5.0, small step. 13.666
(ALT HUANG Huidan)

WTF China I watch y0ur network to avoid Nastia

  1. JAS4 Says:

    I hope Yao is able to hit all four events. I also wonder if there will be more gifts from the judges since it’s a later subdivision.

    • gymtruthteller Says:

      I would love to see her hit and be scored based on her routines. These judges are not doing the best job of that.

  2. Melanie Says:

    God, if Shang Chunsong’s handstands were to die for, then Huang Huidan’s are worth being reincarnated for.

    Sidenote, my Autocorrect is really loving these Chinese names.

    • gymtruthteller Says:

      All of the routines were beautiful even the girl that fell.

      • Melanie Says:

        Damn right. Now I’m super excited for their beam routines. But then I’ll probably get bored during the floor routines and quit watching.

  3. Melanie Says:

    Chen Siyi is totally cracking under pressure. That floor was really bad. Not just the bad landings, but Moon River, seriously?

    • Melanie Says:

      Shang is definitely getting lowballed. Not surprised because she usually is.

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        She has messy twisting but look at Mustafina. This is teh third event I have thought she was low balled especially bars

  4. Kaley (@kittykatgym) Says:

    The Chinese are dominating on bars! It’s a shame that they can only have 2 girls in EFs. It’s so unfortunate that Tan Jiaxin is being knocked out by Huang did to a tie breaker. Kyla is still in bars EF even though she has the 9th highest score right now, since Ekaterina and Tan were knocked out due to 2 per country rule. I predict that the bars podium is: 1. Yao 2. Huang 3. Locklear/Mustafina/Spiridonova depending on if Mustafina upgrades or not. It’s crazy that Simone has the highest score on beam right now! She was gifted a few tenths, but she definitely has a chance to medal, especially with Kharkenkova out. Poor Masha. 😦 Her fall was so scary! It looks like the USA will win TFs with how inconsistent and weak China is on floor. I agree that Shang is lowballed by the judges. Her bars and beam are gorgeous, but always hammered, especially in comparison to everyone else. :/

  5. Kaley (@kittykatgym) Says:

    The Chinese one-arm pirouettes are to die for! EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM lands in PERFECT handstand, unlike someone.. *cough Nastia cough.* I adore Shang’s, Yao’s, and Tan’s which are textbook! Huangs are just on another level with the flexibility and floatyness to them.

  6. sanitynmotion Says:

    Are there any you tube videos of the other countries???

    • gymbot Says:

      The FIG youtube channel has a few, but it’s not comprehensive. Piibunia usually posts a great deal, but PT videos are still being uploaded, so perhaps some day 1 videos will be up sometime tomorrow.

  7. Dee Says:

    Love the team photo of china at the top of the post. They look so pretty!

    I just checked the standings after Romania went. Looks like Romania and China brought the party. Also great Britian in 4th place? That’s awesome! Looks like event finals are going to be intense.

  8. TrishaG Says:

    Shang didn’t hit her feet on the bar on UB. She muscled up into her handstands a little after her last two releases, but not awful. She’s just getting screwed. :/

    Here’s a link to the video:

    I agree that her floor score also seems a little low, a couple tenths higher seems more in line with how everyone else was scored.

  9. biyatch Says:

    China on floor is a mess. And its not even like China is struggle going all out for huge difficulty, they are struggling with like D tumbling passes. If you take the top three scores of China and the US after 3 rotations China actually has a .625 lead over the US. And then floor happens and US has a nearly 4 point advantage. Some of the scoring was seriously wtf. Particularly on vault (although really what else is new.)

    Love Simone, I just wish someone was able to rise up and give her a challenge, even if its another American. She legitimately could be coming home with 5 gold medals. At this rate, camp this month with all the returnees will be far more interesting then worlds results.

    I find it interesting that Marta didn’t name a captain. She had no qualms about giving the title to Alicia in 2010 or 2011 and then telling Aly to take over when Alicia went down. I guess Kyla has never really screamed HBIC like the Brestyan’s girls.

    • TrishaG Says:

      Rick from Gymnastics Coaching had mentioned on his website before or during podium training that the floor mat is really hard and it’s causing problems for the lighter, smaller gymnasts. They’re not able to get as much rebound with this brand of mat as opposed to ones made by other equipment manufacturers. The Chinese team is one of the smallest and lightest, so the mat is likely affecting them. They aren’t that strong on floor to begin with, and the added disadvantage of a hard floor definitely doesn’t help.

      • sanitynmotion Says:

        Isn’t worlds in China though? Wouldn’t part of home team advantage be you get to practice more on the equipment they opted to use?

      • gymtruthteller Says:

        I don;t think they were allowed in before anyone else.

      • gymbot Says:

        Didn’t China get in trouble for training on the Olympic equipment in 2008?

      • sanitynmotion Says:

        Yeah the Chinese cheat without hesitation…

        Couldn’t they have outfitted their gym with the same apparatus material? I have no clue honestly.

        Still where is Cheng Fei when you need her.

  10. Exgymgurl Says:

    Six things: maybe Kyla missing bar finals causes her to actually upgrade or go to Stanford

    Put baumann on floor and Kocian on bars for TF for Kyla and Simone

    Skinner was not hammered as badly on floor as I thought.

    I do not remember the last time the chinese team looked this good mid quad at worlds, they always said they only care about olympics. I guess they care if worlds are in China

    I think this is Yao Jinan’s year. The chinese looked insane on bars!!

    If Skinner pulls out her Amanar in EF I think she beats simone on vault. Scary but Simones second vault is not as strong.

    • Tortuga Says:

      In an ideal world Kyla would upgrade and blow us all away but I’m preparing myself for the announcement she will not defer and go straight to Stanford fall of freshmen year 😦

    • gymtruthteller Says:

      Stop trying to send Kyla to Stanford.lol First I don’t think she picked a school yetr did she? and second you never know what she can bring. Just because she looks off now does not mean she can’t be ready for 2016.

      I think they will use Baumann on floor in team finals and Kocian and I agree Skinner was not judged as harshly as she could have been but that doesn’t mean she won’t be in event finals. Its a whole new game when deciding medals when it comes to the judges.

      In short I agree with everything you said except Kyla.

      • sanitynmotion Says:

        I do too (about Exgymgurl’s statements).

        Not sure how Skinner managed to get a decent floor score with her form. Then again, look at Musty’s twist elements in the air. Yuck.

    • biyatch Says:

      Except Skinner’s amanar hasn’t looked like anything other than trash since like 2011 when she did it at the Nastia Cup. Its been garbage (like flying off the podium garbage) for a while now.

      • sanitynmotion Says:

        Because of bad form issues? She really needs to fix her form but these damn judges are sending her all kinds of WRONG messages. Hope it comes down in team finals but I have a feeling it won’t.

    • Exgymgurl Says:

      The garbage Amanar was rumored to be well landed at camp. Its the perfect thing to,pull out for EF. Marta has gold either way, and if skinner beats her maybe it pushes simone to actually work harder. I hope Kyla figures out how to get herself together between now and rio. Maybe with Aly gabby and McKayla back she will have to work harder just to keep a spot. Im a little surprised her parents are coming to worlds this year because they did not come last year. That tells me it may be her swan song. Of course she would never tell anyone that but it would not surprise me. She has 600+ days less than 2 yrs to rio. Thats a lot of time and a lot of work.

      • sanitynmotion Says:

        My best guess re: Kyla is she knows her ailments and while she wants to go for Rio, if her best days are behind her she’s likely content with being a gold medalist in London. Nobody can take that away from her at least.

        I’m sure she’ll try her best in the next year to upgrade and if her body tells her “no” she’ll make the decision to go to college. As much as I love Kyla I’d rather see her pull an “Ebee” as opposed to a “Memmel.”

  11. Ilanchik20 Says:

    And here I thought Marta would give Kyla some rest, especially on floor where her D isn’t even that high right now– of course not. Sigh.

    • gymtruthteller Says:

      So ridiculous.

      • Tortuga Says:

        When is the last time Martha let anyone withdraw from an event final from injury? I don’t think it’s gonna happen. Plus signs point to Martha not really liking Skinner to begin with.

      • sainabou nyang Says:

        They probably think she wont medal in the AA anyway, so why not make her do all four events in TF.

    • G Says:

      Gahhh, why couldn’t they just put Baumann on floor instead? They could even have put Kocian on beam if they wanted to. Though, I could totally picture her falling off under this sort of pressure.

      All I know is, if this aggravates Kyla’s injury and takes her out of the AA and Skinner is there instead, I will be PISSED.

      • Tortuga Says:

        I meant to comment under G but put it in the wrong spot. I’m not good with technology today.

  12. gymnerd Says:

    So I just saw the TF lineup and Kyla’s in every event. I hope this means she’s not actually as injured as we think she is, and has something left for the AA. I don’t trust Marta.

  13. gymbot Says:

    Can anyone explain to me Ross’ hip strain/injury? She took the switch out of her FX, but not her BB routine. So it was worth it to her to attempt entry into the BB EF and risk injury, but not on floor. Maybe because she has to land with one leg first in the dance passage, it is somehow harder – not sure?
