Looks like Larissa Iordache is out of all EFs. Surprisingly bad performance by Romania.

Sitting in 5th in team qualifications, with China, USA, Russia, Australia and Italy still to go, can't see how Romania will make team finals. Has that ever happened? Brazil may pull out a team finals appearance, would love to see that.

When was the last time one of the "big name" gym countries did not qualify a team to the Olympics at Worlds? They still have a shot during some sort of meet next year, right?

8 go to team final, those 8 make O's. 9th to 16th go to Olympic test event next year, with top 4 making O's.

Wow...Paseka is looking very strong on vault. So she is 8 tenths up in difficulty over Biles. Still think Biles has about 1 point in execution above Paseka between the 2 vaults, but we might actually have a vault competition!

Just looking at the photos, they seem riddled with injuries. Their girls have lots of tape and braces.

Well, after watching the Russians on UB, Marta's decision to leave a 2nd vault specialist off the team in favor of 2 bar specialists is starting to look a lot more clear...wow do they know how to finish a pirouette in handstand!

Romania completely melted down on UB.

Going in first subdivision killed them on FX--Bulimar's and Iordache's routines were better than 13s. Even though Larisa didn't open with her double double. Their vault was good, beam ok minus one fall. Bars was awful.

Hopefully Iordache does well in AA (Jurca may qualify also), that's their only hope for podium


They will still go to test event and should still go to Rio (longer road but same destination)..... Hopefully all will be healthy and this experience is a motivation.

Still will be sad to not see them in the team final :(

Is there live scores being posted. Also, why are they doing qualifying this way? Why not put more countries in one session and have all events going?

Ugh my heart broke for Brenna. I was hoping today would be her day.

Forget the leotards - no talk of Biles's Amanar? And her floor? Or Aly's fall? Gabby in second place? There's nothing better than gymnastics done well.
I'm still working my way through the videos posted on the FIG youtube channel. But I have to say that vault normally does nothing for me, but that was impressive. I always love her floor and it fits so well with the music. You can't not enjoy watching quality like that.

Simones floor was over the roof... Also one of the very few routines with an actual choreography. I vote for seperating "Artistics" and "Gymnastics" and giving the "Artistics World champion" title to Belgium. :D
So happy for the Netherlands!
