Ok while we're on EF it seems as if PB for men has become almost like a compulsory exercise with most gymnasts having the same combination of moves. It's hard for me to tell who is better or worse when routine composition is so similar.

Ah thanks. Oh that is great. That is around 10am my time. Then I am awake again! Good night.

I was looking at the qual scores and it seems as if Jade's chances of medaling are very high because she's one of the few doing a Cheng/Amanar. Andrade only does a Cheng/DTY.

There's also a chance someone like Yeo will throw a different vault in the final than they did in quallies. She has a handspring double twisting layout from 6.2

Maybe I have the wrong gymnast but wasn't she training a triple twisting Yurchenko?
I haven't seen it, but there's a lot of air time in her double twisting Yurchenko, so definitely not impossible. Please don't get my hopes up too much :lol:

I'm actually sort of looking forward to the men's VT and HB final. Those are always the competition of the death skills.

Hong Un Jong of PRK (2008 Olympic champion in vault) submitted this vault in 2016 but she fell on it at the DV was not credited, so it was not added to the COP. It was not submitted as a new element at these Olympic Games, it's not in the COP, so we won't see anyone attempting this vault here.

Can’t wait for high bar, uneven bars and rings!! I am all about event finals. I like the specialists! I didn’t even get why all around was bigger than being a specialist years and years ago. Even though I get it now I still prefer to see event specialists.

4am is a ridiculous time to wake up but I’m afraid I’ll be spoiled if I don’t watch live. I’m really excited for the bars final, hoping Gelya can collect another medal!

I'm going to watch live because I want to, not because I'm afraid I'll be spoiled. I mean, I've gotten up for a few hours at 4am and then gone back to sleep for skating plenty of times. It's only once every 4 (or 5 then 3) years! And I don't have to work, unlike with skating where I do.

Do we know the order of the event finals? Like could I theoretically wake up at 5 instead of 4 if I only wanted to catch VT finals?
