Lets discuss start value.
Gabby got a 5.6 start value on floor which means they gave her credit for one or both her double turns she was short on both and took off only for them being messy. Judges still being judges.
Gabby got a 6.3 start value on beam. Again getting credit for stuff she didn’t deserve.
Kyla only got credit for a 6.0 on bars. If she made the dismount she would have scored a 15.550 (her start value is a 6.5 if she hits. Maybe gymbot can tell me if I am right. Is there a connection bonus with her dismount that took away her start value because the videos you showed has her start value at a 6.5 if hit. Would explain the 6.0 start value.
Kyla only got a 5.9 start value on beam which was effected by the missed wolf. I feel like the beam judges gave some gifts to everyone tonight especially Gabby but Aly wasn’t as lucky.
6.2 for Skinner on floor. The double double laid out was very piked any chance she didn’t get credit?
Simone got 6.6 on beam which is generous.
The low down.
Simone is human. Nice to see her beam scored fairly when she made mistakes but she is still better then the rest.
Maggie stayed on all 4. Good for her. Still find her form messy but she impressed me tonight.
What a sucky night. Yes Gabrielle stayed on all 4 events but with huge errors on floor and a beam routine that was a mess she was still given some gifts no one else would get.
Kyla I can’t even. I still love you but this is a mind game with you. Hitting your 2 no upgrade events and falling on the other two is in your head, I am writing a Dear Kyla letter for a blog, maybe tomorrow.
Brenna Dowell was great tonight and the one gymnast I felt was underscored.
Aly would be in second without the fall even with the gift on floor her Amanar only got a 15.200 which is still high but not as bad as it could have been.
Skinner hit four for four. Good for her.
Simone got a 9,850 execution score on her Amanar and every bit was deserved (crossed feet and maybe slight leg separation at end so maybe a 9.8 but wow. I can’t keep saying wow. That was Mckayla Maroney wow

Kyla missed ounch front wolf and ommited wolf altogether then big bobble on leap. Oy Oy Oy.
4 for 4 Maggie. Hit floor. (14.550)
Brenna DTY. OOB but great for her 4 for 4 too
Gowey stayed on bars but missed some handstands. Flat feet too.
Hundley stayed on beam but a bit messy.
Typical Skinner floor.
NAILED Amanar for Simone. WOW small step on second vault but still very nice
Aly hit bars but not pretty (14.125)
Gabby fell out of both double turns and a jump and shouldn’t get credit for any of them. Then short on her second pass. 13.850 FINALLY A score she deserved.
Come to think of it 2 day competitions are a lot different then a Classic/ Jeselo one day event (event finals day 2 but still not a real prelims, team final, AA and EF)
Amanar, OOB Aly
Ashton hit bars
Gabrielle had a messy beam with missed connections and a few short leaps and a not even close switch ring but she stayed on.
Simone fell on her last pass. WTF Marta is phychcing out her best asset.
COME ON KYLA
Nope. She fell on her dismount. OMGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG
Maggie hit beam but some bobbles and missed connections
I don’t want to watch this anymore.
Nia hit floor and Hundley bars with a trouble on one handstand.
Hit routine for Skinner with leap issues galore on beam. 14. 3 something
Brenna hit her tumbling big time but issues on leaps. (14.300)

That girl has a very nice handstand but wobbly girl wins.
Anyone know Gabby’s DTY Score?
Skinner hit her bars. No big mistakes just form and handstand misses but good for her.
Hand on beam for Key. Missing a lot of connections. 13.700
Kyla needs a sorts shrink because all of this is in her head.
Stuck DTY for Kyla.Preflight form again
Gabrielle was short on a few handstands but bet she doesn’t get deducted.
Simone was shaky to start but got it together second half. She stayed on but not her best.
Aly hit floor looked like she might have been OOB but announcers say no.
Desch didn’t miss her full layout. Big bobble for Kocian and her double front.
DTY hit for Hundley. Polina’s bars are a mes. Nia hit bars I forgot to watch looking for scores.
Brenna stayed on beam then took two huge steps on dismount.
Brenna hit with one mistake. Nice for her.
Gowey stayed on with a few bobbles but she stayed on. She will fall tomorrow.
Nice job by Hundley on floor. Small step on double back bigger step on double pike.
Everyone is hitting. How boring. Note to self Baumann is the pretty Wogaaete. Few missed connections or slow more like it.
Tortuga a messy pak but hit. Any score yet?
Don’t like Gabrielle leo. Changed my mind. Nice DTY but some form.
Beautiful routine by Simone. (UB 15.150)
Aly NOOOOOOOOOO Fall on beam.
Pretty sure Kyla out her hand on floor. This night sucks. 13.550 only got a 5.4 start value. Really Kyla?
Maggie’s Amanar was ugly. Sorry much worse than her other ones especially after the block. (15.800)
Aly starts on beam and Kyla ends on beam. Conspiracy theory
Desch off bars. Kocian off beam. Oy
Nia hit feet on floor on bars but thing was beautiful before that well maybe not beautiful she missed some handstands.
Okay well I forgot my nieces were sleeping over and guess who just showed up? I am about to start the best investment I have ever made, the movie Frozen. That should give me an hour:)
Anyone have a working start list with scores?
According to twitter feed I am following Bailie is wearing a version of Kim’s 1990 leo. OMG Kim please get over your own failure.
Place is half empty. wow I hope its late people.
Computer is working well (so far) as long as video cooperates I will be live blogging tonight. Please make sure to join me later and check the live blog for comments to your comments:)
Yes John because all the gym fans in the arena are stupid and don’t understand the way scoring works.Then again….
I have music and no video.
I hoe they show the gymnasts being introduced
Those 2 ignorant little girls just cut the line. How rude.
This isn’t a gymnastics meet it’s a freaking summer camp. I am old. What is a whip and Nene?
Oh look Carly’s National title gift:)
The childs choir sound great but really why?
Sainabou Nyang this isn’t a gymnastics competition it’s a summer camp.
We are going in order of success right because Sam being last is funny.
Bridget just ducked or they would have shot a shirt into her head.lol
Sorry Simone you are behind the comeback in that montage.
Kyla is wondering why she is in this loser group.
Sainabou Nyang I know they want to entertain but the die hards are watching and the every 4 year fans think it starts Saturday.
Riley is a cute child and a great dancer but that hair.
Love the leo’s by Simone and Kyla. I even like Gabrielle’s.
Sam you are such a pretty girl so please stop talking and proving you’re a blond.
