Notes on Subdivision 2

7:52 AM Arabian Punch Front 0 Comments

Italy defeated Australia for 1st place with 168.397. Australia had a few falls and major balance checks on beam for 2nd with 166.721. Brazil has a 161.295.

Italy performed pretty well. Preziosa had a fall on her dismount. Ferrari connected her full in to back tuck. Ferlito had an overall good performance. Erika Fasana really impressed me everywhere (but BB where she had a major error). Vanessa Ferrari and Carlotta Ferlito are currently 1st and 3rd in the AA. Ferrari is in 1st on FX with a 14.9 (6.2/8.7). Ferrari and Ferlito are also 1-2 on BB.

Australia had quite a few troubles. Lauren Mitchell, however, was able to keep calm and ignore what injuries she may or may not have for an excellent floor routine. She's currently in 2nd with a 14.833 (6.3/8.533) and 5th on the balance beam. Emily Little and Ashleigh Brennan are currently 5th and 7th in the AA.

Maksiuta of ISR did not have the best meet. Her best chance of EF was probably on vault but she fell on her first vault. She also had a chance on beam but appeared to injure herself there. She only scored in the 10s.

Giulia Steingruber had an excellent Rudi (front handspring 1.5 twist) but had trouble with her Tsuk. She was piked down and almost had to put her elbow down. She's currently in 2nd with a 13.924 after Yamilet Pena (14.699).

Rina Erceg and Marta Pihan-Kulesza both had pretty good meets but both have one event with scores in the 12s. Pihan-Kulesza of Poland is currently 6th in the all around. She wore a black leo with yellow accents. Her hair had black and yellow braids today and she gave a stunning performance.

Nataliya Kononenko had a chance of qualifying for UB event finals but fell on her Tkatchev 1/2-Jaeger combination. She's currently in 16th and likely will not make the all around finals.
