    Live streaming isn't working for me for some reason. But good to know the US girls look good and at least Mustafina is looking ready to compete.

    Sounds like Grishina is struggling too, but apparently Afan looked good

    China went well on beam, especially HQS (So I hear)

    4:46 p.m.: Ksenia Afanasyeva, floor: I love this routine. Double layout. Two whips to triple full. Music goes from her 2011 routine to sirens to West Side Story for just a second to something that's just cool. Love the part in the corner right before her final tumbling run, a double pike. Excellent routine!

    Ok Afanasyeva is the ultimate diva. Her floor music is designed to specifically psych you out thinking she's doing her old routine.

    Komova landed her Amanar beautifully, they report it very strong like Maroney´s one!!

    And this is why I don't want her to win AA. If Mustafina had been in her position last year, Russia would've won team gold and Mustafina would've won AA.

    I tell you, she's a rockstah She could teach a thing or two to pretty much every other gymnast here just in terms of style, carriage and presentation IMO.

    Paseka sat her Amanar down. She really is their risk choice IMO.

    Mustafaina stuck a DTY.

    Deng Linlin hit a great FX to Spanish music - apparently looks better than she has in training.

    HQS and Sui Lu did great FX's too apparently.

    No word on Yao Jinnan?!

    They need to forget about Paseka and the second vault. She has sat two Amanars but now she is working on the OTHER vault? Didn't they just bring her along for the TF Amanar?

    I'm not a huge Maroney fan, but I feel a bit bad for her that she's relegated to vault only. I don't know if that will be good for her psychologically. I wonder if we'll find out after the event that her injury is worse than we were told-- like a Memmell '08 situation. I'd really rather see her on floor that Kyla and a hit prelim routine would give her a shot at EF, so they really must have reason to fear that the injury could get worse or know that it is actually pretty bad already.

    Her vaults looked fine and the class of the field. They are being careful as to not aggrivate the injury doing floor, so she doesn't lose out on her medal chances everywhere. It sucks for us fans, but she still gets to fully soak in the Olympics she was meant to have. The US still has a giant advantage if they put 3 of the vaults that were shown today. Aly in particular did a couple just like the one I saw at US Olympic Trials warmup - high and stuck. (still slack form but with the extra block it doesn't bug as much) And shes most likely the one we bench!

    Komova is right on track. So glad she's got the Amanar under her belt again. The girl really needs to learn how to fight though. I like how Mustafina is attacking out there so far

    Nabieva had an Amanar as well (at least she had one in 2010 not sure about this year) - why didn't they take her? She could have stepped up on bars as well if need be and she seems more consistent than Paseka.

    If others don't fall, I hope she isn't on the podium with a fall. I'm with ilovesalchows, it won't happen, but I hope Grishina and Mustafina do the AA final.

    Yao Jinnan's DTY looks questionable. She just did one, with her coach standing in her close to grab her if necessary. He didn't need to grab her, but she did fall.

    Nabieva got injured at the last russian test training camp

    Eventhough her form at the Amanar really got her, she didn´t even use it at last year worlds since she was scored very low on execution (rightfully) many reported that she was even attempting a Produnova (punch double front)

    Komova was fab on bars.

    Grishina good too.

    HQS had a good DTY. So did DLL.

    Yao had a coach spotting her landing on vault, and still she fell. I'm worried. ETA: She landed her 2nd one, but still not great.
