...I just saw Jade take second in vault! No idea on any other women.
watched earlier Most of it anyway.
Got any places in beam or floor for women?
Ashton was 8th on bars. DIdn't see her set though. Missed some of bars, and hers was one I missed. I am forbidden from watching replay utnil DS his home from homecoming..
Floor is tomorrow for women.
Floor: Yul took 3rd, Donnell I think was 6th
Pommel: Max Whitlock won! Alex was 4th.
You can see all results here:
I just watched the video of Ashton's bars, I felt for her! You could tell how upset she was
Appeared to be a combination of pain and emotion...it’s no secret she’s been battling a shoulder injury since Classic and recently injured her knee. It was pretty tough to watch though...I hope she’s okay.
Is there anyone at worlds who is not injured or rehabbing? So many potential medal winners out of action
Smith (ankle - McClusker also injured)
Paseka (chronic back problems)
Ilyankova (back - almost left at home)
Tinkler (ankle surgery 7 weeks ago - the British Downie sisters are also rehabbing surgeries)
Probably a lot of others
Currently watching while making Moussaka, way to spend your sunday evening I guess
It's the first time I am free (or awake) to watch anything of this years worlds. I have been reading along a bit though, seems that if nothing else this competition at least hasn't been boring...
Hurd wins silver!!
Wow! She must be over the moon. What a worlds she had.
Awesome for Morgan! It went from she is going to Worlds for experience and not expecting to medal to taking home two medals. Great job!
Wow! Jade just did a great routine, too!
These results from the 2008 Olymbic beam finals really shows the difference between then and now:
Gold Shawn Johnson, United States 16.225
Silver Nastia Liukin, United States 16.025
Bronze Cheng Fei, China 15.950
4 Anna Pavlova, Russia 15.900
5 Gabriela Dragoi, Romania 15.625
6 Li Shanshan, China 15.300
7 Ksenia Afanasyeva, Russia 14.825
8 Koko Tsurumi, Japan 14.450
This year's winners all scored in the 14's. There wasn't even a hint of a 16. Shows how amazing the whole field was in 2008.
Carey wins silver!
Maybe not. The code has changed a lot since then. Scores will always be at least 0.5 lower, because of the SR missing (used to be 5, now 4) and really less CV given...
And there's been changes to how things are scored too so the scores aren't as high anymore, not necessarily that the girls aren't as good.
Ferrari just went down. It reminded me of when Courtney Kupets went down with an achillies rupture on her last pass her junior year. So sad.
Ouch. That looked like it hurt. So sad for Ferrari
And I thought she was much cleaner than the gymnast from Japan (can't remember her name), but I think she was a little stiff. She did a beautiful routine!
