Who else caught this one? One of the (male) announcers called Dasha Joura of the aussies "Daria" while she was on beam.

I also enjoyed the 11-year old dynamo from Russia maybe and Peng-Peng of Canada. Those are some big tricks in that bar routine of hers if she can learn to control them. She just goes so fast! I was way more impressed with the juniors this time around. Don't get me wrong, the seniors did well, but I was happy to see more of the up-and-coming talent instead of the same-old same-old.

Her name really is Daria Joura, Dasha is her nickname. Google her.:)

As to the whole "Daria/Dasha" thing...I never heard her called "Dasha" until this meet. What gives?

She was "Daria" and "Dasha" was Dasha Joura.

And does anyone know where Tim is getting his info about the boundries on vault? The only deduction is for landing outside the line...not stepping. Those line judges at the end of the vault mat never raises a flag once during the entire competition.

Is that an MAG rule?

Dasha is the shortened Daria in Russian, they seem to have a shortened version for almost every name:

Mischa for Mikhail
Sasha for either Alexandra or Alexander (could be a girl or boy name)
Sveta for Svetlana
Natasha for Natalia
Masha for Maria
