Komova- 15.700 for the Amanar. Got a ND for stepping off the mat. Her feet were a little crossed too. So, she could definitely score higher on it. If she ever sticks it the judges will probably give her a 16 :lol:

15.100 for the Baitova which was very good. Just a small hop.

15.400 average.

Komova's vault: Amanar 15.700 and DTY 15.100 for a 15.400 average. She's 3 points ahead of anyone else. It's my first look at Komova and I have to say I'm very impressed. She really has no weak event at all!

Komova is the best AA gymnast in the world right now. I can't imagine how good she's gonna be come London.

Don't screw it up Russia!!!!!!!!!

I was very impressed with Gomez Porras of Guatemala qualifying in 6th. Loving her fangirl moment asking for a picture with Komova :lol: On the flip side Saadi is still lecturing the poor Canadian girl a good 5 minutes after she finished her vault. Poor things face just screams STFU. I'd be seriously scared of Saadi if she was my coach :eek:

I was very impressed with her too. It's so nice to see such a good gymnast coming from a country you'd never guess had gymnasts. :lol:

Komova is just INCREDIBLE! Is she too young for Worlds this year? I get the baby Russians confused. I hope nothing happens to her, she will be taking the gold in London if she keeps it up.

Yes, she's too young for Worlds. I hope she doesn't go along the same path as the previous Russians who were touted as the next big thing! (Nadezhda Ivanova, Daria Elizarova, and even Anna Pavlova were all wonderfully talented and successful juniors who didn't fulfill their potential as seniors ).

What I find incredible about Komova is that she had a bad podium training and warm-ups--apparently, she couldn't land a single Amanar and kept falling on her opening pass on floor (1 1/2 through to double Arabian). But she hit the Amanar and stuck her opening floor pass cold during the competition!

Yes. Komova is incredible. I think none of them were as good as Komova is, even though all were obviously good but the thing I'm most hopeful about is their are different people in charge of the Russian program. However the one thing I wonder about is the Soviet Union was so deep that no gymnast was expendable and there were probably a ton of Elizarova's that we never saw..

What I'm a little bit concerned about is if Komova becomes tall like her Momma. But her father was a gymnast too, so she'll probably not get that tall. Plus she's 15 and tiny. If she was going to be tall like Mama maybe we'd already see it.
Komova is obviously a good competitor.

Well, I slept through it too - but yay, Komova! Huge scores! Girl's got everything. Best AA gymnast in the world right now.

Thanks for the vid links, Flo.
