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
Iordache (Achilles)
Smith (ankle - McClusker also injured)
Paseka (chronic back problems)
Ilyankova (back - almost left at home)
Melnikova (ankle)
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 :D

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...

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.
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.

Wow! Jade just did a great routine, too!
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!
