Ellie Black won the AA after Desch fell on beam. Ellie deserved the win hands down and did the best beam routine of her career tonight but some of the judging in this meet was just down right Skating-ish. Skating-ish like the competition was in Russia and you were Russian.
Flavia who finished second put her hands on beam TWICE and the judges ignored it like it never happened. Add the huge bobble and the score was impossible. Desch stepped out of bounds and was deducted for it but lost 5 tenths from her prelims score. Hundley also scored lower then her prelims score on floor.
Well it’s gymnastics so I shouldn’t be surprised but even with the mistake on bars Falvia’s gifts on floor and especially beam where she touched the beam twice just makes me shake my head at her gift bronze medal.
Marta will not be happy losing to a Canadian but as suspect as Black’s form and connections on beam can be she deserved the win tonight.
Event Finals Results
It is called the Event Finals event but it should have been called lets give medals to Canadians because we are in Canada. I thought Hundley deserved the floor gold over Black and honestly would have put Anna Gomez over Black too. Ellie is all bent knee’s and bad form on floor yet she got the best execution score in the finals.
On beam Black’s ridiculous start value would have given her gold unless she fell but I really thought 3rd place finisher should have beaten Woo and I like Victoria. All in all what can you do. Has the Pan Am’s ever been in the US?

Not sure what this is but the singer is Juliette Goglia who I mostly remember as a killer who framed her brother when she was like 10 on an episode of CSI. You might remember her as the girl Logan babysat for his friend on Veronica Mars who tried to get Logan and Veronica back together, She was super creepy on the 2 episodes of CSI.
