Having seen the videos of all of Jordyn's routines, she is definitely capable of posting a higher AA total than what she did. She had some tiny balance checks of beam, the mistake on her 2 1/2 punch layout (legs started to tuck/com apart), and she took a larger step on her Amanar than she usually does. Komova may be able to top her prelims' total as well, I just haven't seen all of her routines yet. The all-around should be exciting! Either girl is a worthy champion.

Komova had OOB on her floor, so she's definitely able to score higher there.

I think both Komova and Wieber will score higher in the AA finals. Other than beam, the scoring was really tight in prelims, particularly on floor. I just hope they both do well and produce an interesting AA final.

Don't worry about China. ;) Even if they bumble through this championships, they'll be Gold contenders in London with some "new" gymnasts.

:sekret: "Potty training is accomplished, and documents will be in order by February 2012."

Cut "USSR" here, paste "China" there.

Komova's beam. If anything she was scored to low. Just incredible. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U2Dlh8pfYEM&feature=player_embedded Her acro series is like watching poetry.

I read earlier today that the US Men (and Japan too since they're in the same subdivision) will start around 10:15 PM tonight. Does that sound about right? For some reason I thought it was later than that but I could be wrong. I'm not good with time conversions, LOL :shuffle: :lol:

Vika's balance beam :swoon:
Komova VT (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m7AvEGhIY3Q&feature=player_embedded)
Komova FX (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MjHmiBrHDDE&feature=player_embedded)
Raisman FX (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SMNT3wHXUjY&feature=player_embedded#!)

Raisman's tumbling is nuts, but I hope someone else wins floor. Her presentation and dance leave so much to be desired, and her leaps are terrible. I'm not a fan of Weiber, but her FX was pretty good. I'd rather her win.

Komova's acro series is just :swoon: I wish the beam was longer and the code rewarded doing 3 layout stepouts like in the early 90's. Can you imagine how effing gorgeous that would look from her!?

I want Raisman to win floor. I know she has work to do on her presentation but she has improved and her tumbling more than makes up for it, IMO.

The amplitude on Komova's acro series is fabulous. I don't remember the last time I got excited about that series.

I'm on the fence about Raisman. The tumbling is awesome, but like oleada said, the dance is pretty bad. If she wins, I'll be glad for her and there's no one I'd really rather see win. I don't like Komova's routine very much.

Puerto Rico is doing really well on Pommels so far.
