    Mustafina has submitted the triple Y so many times now and has never gotten it. One day she will.

    She has never submitted to world championships, this is her first attempt. The only other championships she has submitted was at the european championships this year, again that would not be allowed for naming purpose.

    MAG quals is underway and Mikulak finished just shy of 90 points overall. Definitely a contender. In other news 17 year old Kenzo Shirai has been busy making history with the first recognised triple twisting Yurchenko and a quad twist on floor.

    Kenzo Shirai FX Qual Quad twist stuck cold is the dismount

    Kenzo Shirai TTY VT Qual

    So a quick question for those in teknik. WAG vaulter Hong Un Jong has submitted the TTY but obviously is yet to compete. Does this mean all future TTY will be called a Shirai? Or if a woman does manage it, will it be named after her under the WAG code?

    It would be different in the mens and womens. Those are beautifully done, he's going to push Uchimura the next 4 years too going to be a great motivation for both.

    Catching up on vids... Based on the PT clips I'm not feeling the Kyla World AA Champ feeling I've had all year, but who knows she may surprise in competition. It's like she's gotten even taller and it's thrown everything off - her bars esp look to have regressed in a lot of ways, hopefully they look a lot cleaner in competition. Floor was good, beam could maybe medal, but I think if they all hit at this point Maroney/Biles might have higher AA scoring potential. Biles could even make all 4 EF. I also think its a huge plus that Mac gets to start on FX/VT - when those two are out of the way all pressure is off and everything is a gain. Mustafina looks great on bars, Izbasa looks good to medal on floor, Yao Jinnan looks fab http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W-u8bsa1wK4

    I noticed a Romanian in the feed had both FF-tucked full and FF-piked full BB combos in one routine - has Iordache upgraded here? I love the arena, feels like an authentic gym Worlds.

    It'll be like the Shewfelt and Amanar I would have thought.

    I'm happy as a fan of Maroney's to see her to AA and disagree that she doesn't stand a chance (I don't think Martha would put her up if she had no chance), but I do agree that it was pretty awful of USAG to do that to Dowell. It is also a bit of a shame that she doesn't get the experience this year with little pressure when she could be an important team member in the future.

    Yes, I would agree, although I always think it's strange that hardly anyone calls the vault a Shewfelt in MAG - they usually just refer to it as a 2.5TY.

    Yay for Brandon Wynn leading Ring Qualifications after 3 subdivisions! Mikulak in second after 3 subdivisions in the all around behind Uchimura.

    Interesting that we have a female judge in the Men's competition and a male judge in the Women's competition. I know this is completely normal at other competitions (NCAA Women's competitions regularly have male judges, not so much the other way around), but it's a first for the World Championships.

    CHEERS!!! He was spectacular today.

    Sam was nice and steady, it was very much a strong, secure All-Around performance.

    The way they're breaking it up is sorta strange.

    MAG Qualifying is over, and the only US man not to make a final was Naddour, which is a shame because he hit both routines. Just doesn't have the difficulty on PH or SR to make finals.

    Ross went 4 for 4 and scored 59.198. She is way out in front but her challengers won't compete until tomorrow.

    WAG Qual session 2 is up now. The results link appears to be broken.

    Gutted for Dan Keatings. He was coming back so well with that European PH title but he had a bad comp at home just before Worlds and hasn't made the final here. He's worked so hard to get back in the team as well.

    Interesting that the US only ended up having one man do AA. I really hope Sam can keep his performance up! Did the US also only have two men do HB? Because that seems odd.
