Yes. When I was watching Komova on beam, I was thinking of the clips of the old Soviet gymnasts on beam. She's just spectacular. Actually though she has a young teammate coming up who also has a very similar look Anastasia (Nastya) Grishina. In some ways Grishina has even better form that Komova (which you can see especially on floor) I think I prefer Komova on beam and Grishina on bars. The only thing Grishina needs to work on to get competitive (fast with Komova) is to upgrade her vault she only does a Yurchenko 1 1/2 and upgrade her floor passes a bit. Reportedly the Russians have Grishina and others also training Amanars. Grishina won't be eligible till the Olympic year.

Grishina and Komova together swept the Junior European medals. With Grishina taking gold on bars and floor (although floor was tied with a Romanian) and Silver in the All Around, And Komova taking Gold in the All Around, Floor, and vault, and silver on bars.

I thought someone said it was an F. Oh well I'll look it up.

Double arabian tucked (4.505) is an E. Double arabian piked is an F and laid-out is a G.

Junior Difficulty restriction:

DV Restriction: If performed “F” or “G” elements the maximum value of 0.50 for each element
may be rewarded.

I think what might have hurt Komova's D score is that it seemed like both of her pirouettes seemed off and she may not have got full credit for them. That would be hurtful to her score because both moves are D elements. Oh, BigB08822, I also thought that the new Code values Double tucks the same as Double pikes now, both being D elements.

Wow, I hope that's true. Grishina was lovely at junior Euros, just lacking difficulty on a few events. She has the most stunning lines on bars imo.

In a perfect world (mine anyway :D), Komova and Grishina would be 1 and 2 in the AA in London. As long as I'm dreaming, Zam has some major upgrades and gets 3rd. :D

I want Komova, Grishina & Mustafina but that's not possible. :lol: I'll take Larson for bronze ;)

Grishina just needs some upgrades and she'll be there. Her lines and form are gorgeous. Her gymnastics are so clean.

It would be so great if Russia had this kind of success. It would force other programs/Countries to really focus on these kinds of things. Like other countries had to when the Soviets were around. Its funny but in just about everything else being said your like the Soviets is offensive (maybe skating) but to say one's gymnastics is like the Soviets its really the highest compliment. I'd love if the Russians can build a program that valued the things that the Soviets valued in terms of quality of gymnastics, while having more respect for human life.

Aaah, I like Mustafina, she is my favorite! But I also like Komova and Grishina. I think they will make a really strong team for London
