I’d agreed, I hope they are fully recovered and able to skate to their best. Another poor performance will not be good for their confidence or the Russian Feds confidence in them.
They came out the door with two really strong performances, displaying all their amazing qualities. Let’s keep that...
I thought Marilena gave two wonderful performances. Congrats to her and Cyprus for their first victory at the Challenger/Senior B level. She is only listed as a reserve for Nebelhorn, surely she would grab an Olympic spot for Cyprus In her current form. Is it to late to switch skaters?
So many great moments;
Russian MAG and WAG team victories
Oksana Chousovitina’s emotional farewell
Both 400 hurdles world records. Two fantastic races.
Both high jump finals. Brilliant to see Barshim and Tamberi share gold. Lasitskene’s outstanding victory, when the pressure came on she...
Plenty of good looking fit guys in the Olympics. A few I’ve been fans of a while;
Estonian 400m Hurdler Rasmus Magi
Team GB Diver Daniel Goodfellow
Kevin Mayer, French...
A very exciting Men’s team competition. Delighted to see Russia win but it was very close. I thought after 4 rotations they were home and dry but just about got it. A great end with everyone waiting on Nagorny scores. The Top 3 were well clear.
I was shocked after Womens team qualifying to...
A nice article on Chusovitina. I hope all goes well for her tomorrow and we get to see her in the vault final.
i wonder how far ahead the Americans will be clear of the rest after...
A bit of a demotion for Kostornia and Aliev to be put on the reserve team. Will this impact them for the GP series. Where is Med?
The main teams for Pairs and Dance are small. Surely P/K should be on the main Pairs list.
I really enjoyed Lopareva/Brissaud Free Dance at Worlds, it really stood out for me (as did the other French team), not sure that programme would be Zhulin’s teams style. I hope it works out for them.
Has Abachkina been released by France or are A/D not representing Russia? I think they’d find...
Another exciting day of gymnastics.
Sadly, no medal for Ireland. Rhys came of the PH and finished 5th. He was one of 4 fallers. Gold to Davtyan from Armenia, he tied with Nagorny but had a better E score. Not long after he appeared on RTÉ and gave a very positive interview. He fell on a new...
A very exciting Men’s competition. Another 1-2 for Russia. Nagorny over Belyavskiy with a very impressive Kovtun claiming bronze for Ukraine. Order and Turkey were in the bronze after 5 rotations but had a disaster on high bar. Adam Steele was 21st, he was 11th on HB and 13th on Floor, which...
Currently a Russian 1-2 in the Men’s, but there is only 2 rotations done so far. A few spills in PH.
RTE is reporting that Vernaiyev is serving a 2 year ban. Does anyone know what it is for? Oleg and the Ukrainian Fed had not disclosed anything that I’m aware off.
Where are Nina Derwael and Melanie Dos Santos? I hope they are not injured.
I liked Verkest on beam. is there live scoring. I presume Listanova is in the lead.
Emma Slevin is in 14th after 2 rotations, I hope she keeps it up. 🍀🍀
That was a great effort from Emma. I really enjoyed it, she worked well with the music. 12.3 not bad.
I can remember Gerry Kelly, definitely back to Barcelona. I was never convinced he knew gymnastics that well. His pronunciation of the surnames used to be very poor.
I always enjoyed Christine...
The All Around has kicked off. Iordache and Steingruber are both out.
Martha Pilhan Kulesza was doing a lovely routine to vote on Floor but injured her knee on a leap and pulled up.
Elizabeth Seitz is competing in a unitard. Lovely bars routine bit a bit scrappy. Score just over 14.
