I think Russia might've had 3 falls on bars last year. Didn't either Nabieva or Afansyeva fall off twice?

nabs had that honour.

There is a Dominican? girl in 3rd in vault right now. I hope she makes it, we need a little diversity in the women's medals :)

she did a Produnova vault to get there...

ETA: Nastia Liukin has officially announced that she is coming back for 2012.(i think wrong time and Venue to announce such a thing)

Anyone still here? :lol: I should be sleeping, but my sleep schedule is screwy. I need to get it back on track.

Anyway, Spain, Italy, Ukraine, and Hungary in are in Sub 9.

I expect Ukraine to break my heart like always...

There is one quite simple reason as to why Russia are in second place - Anna Dementyeva's form has completely collapsed! At Europeans and right up to a month ago, her all-around scores were in the 59's. Here, she is 5 points down on that. But for that, Russia would be in the lead. I can't help but think that she must be carrying some kind of injury - otherwise what on earth has happened to her?

Hence, there is something Russia can do to turn matters around in time for Tuesday - get Dementyeva back into form (so long as she is not injured)

Italy sneaked in right after Germany. Canada in the edge right now with the 8th place.

One subdivision to go, right?
At the moment,
AUS; GER, ITA and CAN would qualify...

Well Japan are surely going to sneak past Canada so Canada looks like they'll have to do another qualification. And Great Britain will as well. No idea about France.

Komova's Uneven Bars are lovely but her arms seem rather laboured. Wieber's floor was lovely too. Pity they haven't put up more videos. Would be nice to see all the performances that qualified for finals.

Does Canada finishing 7th in th Qs mean we get to send a full team to the Olys?

I don't want to be mean, but serves China right for not taking Wu Liufang.

And I would never wish an injury on anyone, but I wouldn't mind Wieber taking a splat or two in the AA final. Their scores are really close from prelims, but Komova has it all over Wieber in almost every single department that it's not even funny.

I have a feeling that the Japanese WAG team is going to exceed expectations at this Worlds.

They are 8th at the moment with another subdivision to come. so very likely no.
