Opinions of a gymnastics coach that you can't really blame this on Marta: http://gymnasticscoaching.com/new/2011/10/achilles-tendon-rupture/

There's still 24 hrs before the competition, ANNA LI IS STILL TRAINING FULL BAR ROUTINES. If you had any sense at all right now Marta, you would water down Anna's routine so it can still score high 14-15, and put her in the lineup. We only have 5 gymnasts, and we just lost a lot of points with Alicia out.

We need Anna Li, even a 70% Anna Li, much more now than we did during podium training. My god that woman is the freaking devil, for real. WAKE UP!!!

I think they will put Anna into finals. No need to make her do prelims.

Before when Alicia was healthy I felt that way, but all 5 girls are doing AA and if Anna is still training UB why not give her a shot at bar finals too?? She has a low hit rate and her first world routine in her life being a routine with the gold on the line is ehhhh. I'd rather her water down like 4 or 5 tenths in prelims then depending on how that routine felt go for broke in finals.

If they put her in for finals does that mean Sacramone loses a medal if they win one? Not that I think it should change the decision, but I was just curious.

Yeah, they would have to switch out Alicia to the alternate position and Anna onto the roster. In that situation Anna would get a medal and Alicia would get nothing.

That's what I thought. If Anna is able to compete, then she needs to do it. Sabrina is far too inconsistent on bars to go up in TF, Maroney's start value is too low and let's not even go their about Raisman.

I read on another board that there is some stupid rule that says the alternate can only come in if she is competing on the same apparatus as the athlete she is replacing. Since Sacramone was not on the bars lineup then Anna can't be subbed in. This is really dumb and I am not sure if this is true but it was brought up. Maybe this rule doesn't apply to TF and Marta will have to sit Anna out of prelims then use Alicia's injury to get clearance to put in Li. Maybe once TF comes around anyone can sub in for anyone as long as the injury is legitimate. Just guessing...

If that's the case, then the FIG is an even bigger sack of morons than I already previously thought they were.

Which is why I think it must be true...

Anna Li's most recent blog post. Sounds like she's feeling better.

Any live streams? I hate that Universal Sports is charging $20 and not covering prelims. :mad:

No live streams known yet, Fuji TV in Japan will show the qualifying groups live but only of the japanese squads, of the other teams they will broadcast hightlights next weekend

Alexa Moreo of Mexico had a decent first vault (6.3) though she was very close to the horse, anyway a low start value second vault (5.2) so her average is 14.249 she may be in the bubble to qualify such a shame since she has been developing into a good vaulter

Elsa Garcia couldnt start anything worst, a fall on her vault and she scored 12.933 damaging her chances to qualify to the AA, hope she doesnt get a 2007 pre-olympic experience where she lost any chances of getting to the games given a bad performance-injury worlds experience

And a 12.666 on Bars for Elsa... what a shame, will be painful to see her not making it again :(
