Ferlito stalled on the top bar. :(

Isn't she coached by a Romanian? Nuff said. Seriously if your going to let your kid be coached by a Romanian, at least hire a seperate coach for bars. (Unless you get a 1980's Romanian coach.

Not sure given the overall level of the competition that Bulimar being here bodes well for Romania.

You know Komova so doesn't belong in this competition and to a lesser extend neither does Tan. Its not fair to make the girls compete against Viktoria.

Point taken. But she does have two years to develop and improve, I think she can at least be decent there for London.

Ok so we've moved from everything being a tsukahara on vault to everything being a tkatchev on bars ;)

Of course she can. The Romanians have had some better bar workers lately in Nistor and Porgras. But with Belu back. The open ended scoring system has spelled wonders for China and now Russia and not so much for Romania (and coming the USA)

(((Madeline))) :(

Danafan - is there any chance of Canada qualifying a full team for London? I still miss our "glory days" 99-2000 team (one of the best things about that quad!)

Tan Sixin's UB has all the typical Chinese problems.
Will lead by a mile, though.

Hmm. Komova brushes the floor.

ETA: Oh well, she wins anyway :lol:

Adlerteg on her mobile calling home, I'm assuming.

Quite a disaster-filled bars final.

Hmm. Komova brushes the floor.

What's the deduction for that anyway? Like, .3 ? Or does it count as a kind of fall?

Komova brushed the floor transitioning to the low bar and it didn't interrupt the routine at all. Otherwise such perfect form, wow.

Why the heck do they have Tan start out on the low bar. That's just dumb.

Well that was a whole point off for that brush judging by the score. Still 3 golds for Komova.

I guess the feet brushing the floor is deducted like a fall then.

How great for Adlerteg to win a medal. :)
