In the end who wins doesn't matter to me as much this worlds. I just feel like as dedicated gym fans we all deserve an amazing worlds and may the best team win. I feel like the only great competition we've had the past 5 years was Beijing. :o

Here is the German estimation how the competition will go:

Trotz der Verletzungsausfälle und mit den vier WM-Neulingen (außer Raisman) wird erwartet, dass diese USA-Riege erste Goldambitionen hat.
Obwohl die Russinnen sich auch ohne die noch verletzte Titelverteidigerin Alija Mustafina gut vorgestellt hatten, wäre ihr Sieg hier doch ein kleines Wunder.
Eher traut man den Chinesinnen jedenfalls mehr zu, denn in der Qualifikation ließen sie doch einige noch abstellbare Mängel erkennen (HE, Kexin nur mit 12 Punkten am Barren, kann aber gut über 15 turnen...)
Rumänien und Japan werden sich einen knappen Kampf liefern - Bronze aber käme wohl auch nur als absolute Überraschung zustande ...
Interessant aber dürfte der Prestigekampf auf den Rängen 6 - 8 sein, wobei die deutschen Mädchen das ganz locker sehen könnten, denn sie haben mit ihrem 6. Rang bisher schon mehr erreicht, als ihnen zuzutrauen war. Sicher wollen die Britinnen als kommende Olympiagastgeber heute mehr als eine "bessere Duftmarke" hinterlassen ...
Wir erwarten einen spannenden Wettkampf!

rough translation:
In spite of all the injuries and with four newcomers to the World tribune (Raisman being the exception) it is expected that the US is the favorite team.
The Russian did very well here even without the defending champion Mustafina but a win here would be a small wonder.
Rather the Chinese team could challenge, as they left a few marks on the table in the qualification (for instance He, Kexin who only had 12 points on bars but could easily get 15 or more)
Romania and Japan will have a tight battle. A bronce medal for either team would be a big surprise.
Interesting will be the prestige battle in the ranks 6-8.

Raisman - DTY, pretty clean, just a tad off-line, small hop on landing.
