Why did Ferrari pull out?

That was a great FX final; they all pretty much hit, and my two faves came 1-2. I enjoy that.

:lol: we are all over the place tonight! Is Afana retiring before London, or is this just speculation that she'll get kicked off the team by Mustafina, Komova and Grishina?

I think it's mostly that there's seemingly no place for her on the team.

Musty, Komova, Grishina, and Sidorova will all most likely make the team if healthy. That leaves room for only one more. Bars will be covered with the first three. Russia would need another vaulter, which would put someone like Paseka in a good position.

Speculation. ;)

Yep like the Americans they have so much depth. Unlike the Americans they are more headcases. i.e. dementyeva.

Commentators said Ferrari had a fall in warmups? Is that what they said?

There was speculation earlier that Komova would scratch in favor of Afan.

I don't think there will be room for Afan on Russia's team next year, but whoever knows? With injuries, etc. They may need a vaulter.

^Ferrari had a very bad fall in training and had to pull-out, according to the BBC.

I have no idea what happened to Komova; maybe she's just shattered? Hungry? Maybe they knew Afan had a better chance? Vika's looked rough on FX her last two outings.

ah, okay. that explains it why Chelaru was subbed in so late. Wow, I never thought that the subs would be ready to go until the last minute. She must have been in the gym in her leo already and warmed up. At least I hope so. Otherwise it would be very dangerous even with her being allowed to warm up a bit longer than the rest.

Good High bar from hambuechen? Seemed a bit wild as if he was falling behind at times.

Since Ferrari pulled out, Afana would have been in true final anyway.

I think Orozco was VERY nervous. As he matures, I think he's going to be very graceful. Love that first release.

Orozco: Good but mistake in middle and landing a bit untidy.
