After this subdivision - 1.) Adlerteg (SWE) 2.) Vargas (ESP) and 3.) Park (KOR). Adlerteg won with a 53.xx score and a nearly 3 point lead. She also had the top scores in beam, uneven bars & floor, and was second on vault, which Vagas won.

I hate sleeveless leos; they rarely look good.

I agree.

I mean, they're fine for training obviously, and even exhibitions, but for competition, I just don't think they look professional.

Tan is in the next subidivision as is the Romanian Bulimar. I think I remember that Tan has a nice beam, but a hugely uninspired floor routine.

Japan's Sasada is also in the next subdivision - basically all the big names except Komova.

Tan Sixin took a big step on her first vault; then landed on her bum in the (easier) second vault. But her first vault was the first score over 14 of the day.

Tan wasn't even close on the 2nd vault.

Even Tan's first vault seemed weak to me, but I'm not that much in technik. :(

I agree. Her feet were crossed in flight and she landed deeply where it almost looked like she was gonna fall on her knees.

Sasada with errors on UB
Bulimar's got tons of hair glitter :lol:

Geez, Bulimar has huge leg separations even on the takeoff.

Holy tape job on Bullimar's knee. :P I hope it doesn't reflect the extent of any injury!

Gotta love all the "nice job, except the fall on the landing". :lol:

I think these commentators might know less about gymnastics than Trautwig even. :lol:

Whee, figure skating mention. An extremely general one, but I like to hear it mentioned, nonetheless. :D

That girl in purple is the biggest gymnast I've ever seen :eek:

Bulimar was Nistor-esque on vault.

ETA: "Nicely done" and "Correct" are about the two comments these two know :lol:

I know, right?
I didn't wanna say anything...

These guys are so impressed by everything. Komova will make their eyes pop out of their heads with her difficulty. :lol:

I liked Australia's Angela Donald on beam. One of the better beam performances we've seen. :) "Nicely done"

14.400 - highest score so far. (I think)

The girl in purple is from Chile. "She doesn't have the typical body style for a gymnast"
