One subdivision more to go and the standings thus far

1 France 350.659
2 Italy 346.334
3 Canada 345.892
4 Brazil 345.152
5 Belarus 335.824

With three teams to go, France is qualified to the Games as a full team, Italy will have a good battle with Puerto Rico and probably Spain, Great Britain must qualify with Keatings, Purvis and Thomas

Brazil wont make it as a full team, they had hopes, but they will have 2 gymnasts with the already qualified Zanetti and Hypolito (individual event medal winners in 2011 worlds)

All around speaking, Mexico´s Daniel Corral Barron is leading the competition with one subdivision to go with 88.465 score, huge improvement and also leading the pommel horse, it seems he will qualify to the games, a big achievement for MAG in our country who have not qualified a male gymnast to the games in like 28 years iirc

No, no live streaming of qualifications, just the apparatus finals will be streamed live on the FIG youtube channel next thursday

Final Standings Team
1 Great Britain
2 France
3 Spain
4 Italy

In the individual all around, Great Britain 1-2-3 with Purvis, Thomas and Keatings, followed by Daniel Corral of Mexico! taking out the third gymnast from a country he is the virtual bronze medalist in the men´s all around of the olympic test event

Also he qualified in first position to the pommel horse finals and in seventh in the parallel bars. This is a tremendous achivement for MAG in my country trust me, and Daniel has a nice future ahead, he is only 22 years old

The british guys had a nice meet, with solid scores in pommel horse, they have improved a lot, with three scores on the 15 range for an apparatus that is very hard to get even reach that score, so this will rise their hopes of a team medal in London, keep an eye on them as this was not expected of them to have improved so much on pommel horse

Happy for Great Britain but bummed neither Canada or Puerto Rico made it.

Really hoping for Canada to pull it off tomorrow, eeek. I want a full women's team back and enjoyed watching them at the Pan Ams.

Regarding the qualifications for London:

I read on Wikipedia that Diego Hypolito (BRA), Aleksandr Shatilov (ISR), Krisztian Berki (HUN), Arthur Zanetti (BRA), Vasileios Tsolakidis (GRE), and Thanh Ha Thi Phan (VIE), by virtue of them winning medals at the 2011 Worlds, automatically qualify for the Olympics. They also said that all medalists in each apparatus will qualify for the Olympics as individuals (like the aforementioned) or as part of their teams of five. This would therefore mean that the following medalists would also qualify:

Women
USA: McKayla Moroney, Jordyn Wieber, and Alexandra Raisman
RUS: Viktoriya Komova, Tat'yana Nebiyeva, and Kseniya Afanaseyeva
CHN: Lu Sui, Jinnan Yao, and Qiushuang Huang
GER: Oksana Chusovitina

Men
JPN: Kohei Uchimura, Koji Yamamuro, and Makoto Okiguchi
CHN: Kai Zou, Yibing Chen, and Chenglong Zhang
USA: Danell Leyva
KOR: Hak-seon Yang
GER: Phillip Boy
FRA: Cyril Tommasone
RUS: Anton Golotsutskov
GBR: Louis Smith

However, I also know that ultimately whoever makes it to London is at the discretion of whoever is in charge of their respective national selection committee. Could someone offer some clarification?

Nations that qualified a full team (like the U.S.) don't follow that rule. So, even though Maroney, Raisman & Wieber won individual medals at the 2011 Worlds, they're only guaranteed a spot in London if the selection committee puts them on the team.

I would need to find the rules but I thought winning a title or medal at Worlds was no longer enough. I thought you had to do that AND have a score on at least 1 or 2 other events that was close to the average or something. I will have to see what I can dig up. Of course this is all null and void if you come from somewhere that will qualify a team.

Ladies they qualify to the olympics just based on winning an individual medal, but for men you have to score 85% of the mean score in two other events other than the event in which you won a medal. However, Kristian Berki did not have this score, yet FIG confirmed that he has qualified for the Olympics;). As you said this rule does not apply for countries who already have qualified a team.

The women had the 85% rule too.

Canada rocked it today and scored an impressive 221.813 which will be tough to beat!

I don't have any links, just a friend :sekret: informing me, but it appears France finished just over a point behind Canada. Great showings for both. Spain tanked.

Italy next.

Then Brazil & Korea.

The top 8 team at worlds and 4 at the olympic test event qualify 5 gymnasts who will be selected at their own process and trials, no matter if they had a world medal winner or a world champion

Brazil is an example, they had two medal winners with Hypolito and Zanetti and though they did not qualified as a team at the olympic test event, they both will go via that rule of world medalist

if Brazil had qualified as a team, the two spots would be given to nations that did not earn a berth to London
