The Chinese men are on so far except for a few minor mistakes. The Worlds will be on CBC next week saturday.

China qualify 3rd - five points or so behind Japan, 2 behind US. Not seen individual scores yet, so I'm not sure what's what, but this is quite interesting.

I'm trying to see results for the Canadian men, does anyone know where they stand at the moment?

The Canadian men finished 12th in qualifications.

Ah so off to the test event to try and get a full team but that's actually a pretty good result for both the Canadian Men and Women. Gives me confidence we can get two full teams to London at the test event qualifier! Here's hoping!

ETA: Thanks Fridge_Break for that!

Did Uchimura qualify for every final except vault? :eek:

Don't forget that there is less than a day remaining to enter your predictions for the women! :)

Ouch, USA men are in the :blah: position as first alternate in three of the six event finals.

Start order doesn't matter in code-of-points ... blah blah ... Russia has two first alternates despite starting late, true. Meh, :P I think that the draw cost the Americans a finals spot or two. Left with the same chance as the 19th and 20th best teams Netherlands and Hungary.

I think there's a possibility Horton will be added to the High Bar roster. One of the qualifiers is the Japanese gymnast who landed on his head during his FX routine. I'm not quite sure what his status is, if he will be back in time for event finals or not.

Ooh, :drama: just noticed that Dalton was eeked out of the FX by (two guys) .004. Mr. Dalton, you are #1 on the wuzrobbed by the draw list!

He walked off the podium after landing on his head, so I would say there's a shot he'll be back, but not sure how much of a shot.

I still feel really bad for Anna Li. I think it's a joke, as much as I love Alicia, that she has stayed on the roster when she hasn't even been in Tokyo. I guess the real reason I feel bad for Anna is that she continued to workout and do her routines (cleanly according to her blog) and somehow, she still doesn't get subbed in?

Just like to give a quick cheer :cheer2: to John Orozco for qualifying 2nd in the AA behind Uchimura!! AWESOME!

A writer on the couchgymnast forgave Marta for her past transgressions after the US ladies did so well in the prelims--but I feel they did well in spite of her. Not putting Anna on the roster when she's still doing routines is ridiculously unfair.

Li being snubbed is probably none other than Marta's way of telling her "there's no room on next year's team for you." :revenge:

Probably, but wow, what a hateful thing to do. Also, having her march around the floor with the team, that doesn't make sense to me.
