4:30PM - Will post full results once they become available. The commentator has signed out so not sure if the stream will cut off without showing the scores like the other rotations.

Klinckaert BEL FX - Damn. Superb DLO! Best one today hands down! tucked full in. Double Y but falls out early. switch ring. switch full. 1.5 wolf. Sky high double tuck! Double pike. The audience loves it!!!

Perebinosova - I had to log in and out like 5 times but she did well. Nice Ezhova.

YUNA HIRAIWA - OH EM GEE MY BEAUTIFUL BABY. saw her double wolf and 2.5 dismount. Not bad. I discovered her I think before 2014 Worlds. She made the team but got injured so couldn't compete. Wasn't back good enough for the 2015 team. And here she is now :)

3:14PM - They're doing a handstand competition with 3 gymnasts vs Ellie. Ellie's shirt is like falling over her head haha. She's moving around and the gymnasts are just standing there, one of them in a stag handstand. Her name is Kennedy aka baby Brittany Rogers. That was really cute. Ellie picked her up now.

Rotation 2

Believe she said vault score reports were down. I'll update if I hear anything!

VT1: DTY - a little sideways on her block and doesn't land all the way around (she's facing the table but angled out a bit)
VT2: very straight Yurchenko straight. Very nice.

Megan Phillips' leo is so pretty. Goodness gracious! Didn't realize it has lace but it's so pretty. Double L turn. Double tuck small steps. Beautiful movement throughout. Switch split switch half. Double turn - think she was going for more but came out. Punch front full. Switch full. Has to watch the feet. Commentator said 2.5 twist (I thought 1.5). Man oh man that was beautiful!

VT1: FTY - Great height and distance and form. NCAA 9.875 I'd say (so much height but not much distance)
VT2: missed it

Deriks UB - inbar-Komova. Pak. stalder, Chow to stalder 1/2 looks not sure if that was an error because she does another half turn. giant full. nice Tkatchev. gaint 1/2. FTDB not bad.

Chiles - sat her Amanar in warmup
VT1: Amanar with a big step forward! Not bad. I wanna give her a hug. Tbh, it's really not that bad. I think she'll have a very consistent stick.
VT2: Step to the side on DTY. Not sure if she stepped OOB.

Onyshko UB CAN - Maloney to clear hip full to Tkatchev. Hindorff with huge height. Gets a little stick on Pak. Van Leeuwen with a little leg bend. Nice double front.

VT1: missed the first vault - FHS front pike 1/2 stuck per commentator
VT2: FHS front pike - large step forward but great form in the air.

Kennedy SCO FX - jump L turn, OMG what is all this dance before her first pass? 1.5 through to double tuck that was great! switch ring switch straddle 3/4 I think. Nice down to the floor.  Boo she fell on her double pike, knees down. Was up for a great routine.

VT1: handspring front pike 1/2 that was pretty clean!
VT2: nice FHS pike. small hop forward.

Miyakawa - I didn't process that Sae made UB finals! jump to high - clear hip-stalder-stalder full-giant half. piked Jaeger. Pak that was caught super close to the bar but came up from it stalder 1/2 shoot to high. Wow no clue how she's swinging out of anything. Amazing front double pike dismount. 13.275

VT1: FTY - doesn't travel much. Pike down on landing. I think she's tired...
VT2: nice Yurchenko layout. Steps back.

Castro - sugar honey iced tea. Went for double Y fell after single turn. Nice double pike nice leaps. Missed the ending.

Derwael - Chow to Bhardwaj; Maloney. Ricna. toe giant to Pak. van Leeuwen. giant 1/2. full twisting double tuck steps back.

VT1: very nice 1.5TY. I actually thought she was doing a double. Hop forward on the double.

Juniors on vault, seniors on bars, Challenge on Floor.

Rotation 1 - scroll down for start list. I'll stick to VT and FX this rotation.

Emma 14.350

Rose-Kaying Woo - guess she scratched.

2:22PM Malabuyo USA - nice full in tuck. Little hop. Double wolf comes up a little bit but comes back down. 1.5-2.5 and itsy bitsy steps close to the line. FHS-2/1 to stag. She was working on them a lot in warmups with Kim. Nice double pike.

2:17PM Padurariu CAN - nice opening pose. Ferrari. 2.5 punch front half. Had to pike a bit and one leg pops up. Nice switch half (she does it like Aly but definitely hits the split) and switch ring. 1.5 punch front full to stag that was lovely. Not sure where her D falls compared to Cimpian but she's definitely challenging. Nice double pike to close. 13.950

Phillips with a beautiful green leotard. I hope they get a picture of that. Great beam. Wobble on side aerial and just some foot issues on her leaps. Ooh. Good routine but tripped on her punch. Not sure if it would've just been a tuck full?

Cimpian ROU - first place qualifier. Mys I think? Switch ring half. She definitely didn't get all the way around. Nice full in tucked. Great height and control on double pike. Double arabesque a bit sloppy (back leg goes up and down). Switch ring to switch full. NICE TRIPLE! Switch full great. Commentator tells me she's a former rhythmic gymnast which I did not know. Great double tuck to close. Just a hop! Forminte greets her off the podium. OMG her birthday is January 1. Shoot me now. 13.6.

Ramler USA - front aerial - sissone- split. very pretty. nice triple series. shoot. she has a new switch leap Onodi but fell. Kinda crumpled in her Onodi. Leaps and wobbles but stays on. 2.5 twist deep landing and a hop. 13.0

2:10PM - Oguchi JPN dramatic onto floor and opening pose. Super high double layout. Wow baby! 2.5 misses her punch but gets the front layout. Split full? Not great... Double Y. Punch double full punch front tuck and nearly sat but stayed up. Nice switch ring. 2.5 probably supposed to be a triple. She did not have the endurance.

2:08PM - 2nd group warming up

Perebinosova RUS - She's in the pretty blue sweetheart leo that Aliya often wears. Nice mount. Nice 2.5 punch front. Ooh great height on her switch leap, not so great on her switch half. 1.5 through to 2/1 hop back. Uh h wolf. Ugh. Double wolf and stands after one and fakes it into her standing full turn. Great height on double pike but has to take a step back.

hmm. I have the vault stream on and no Rose...

Botnaru ROU - piked full in, steps OOB. Very nice double pike. Switch ring - switch half-split. Nice double tuck. Stuck! Switch full. Double full. Her twisting axis was off so she kinda popped out of it and kicked a leg out.

Sae Miyakawa
VT1: DTY - a little piked
VT2: just a FHS layout. It was very clean. All I know is i looked up during warmups at some point and she was on the ground so probably just playing it safe.

Kinsella GBR - nice Y turn. 1.5 through to 2.5 jump to the side. low triple. was worried she wouldn't make it around. hop in place. nice double pike. double tuck low chest again. nice routine just didn't quite have the endurance for it.

Shallon Olsen
VT1: nice DTY hop in place - 14.825
VT2: Khorkina - tucked Yurchenko 1/2 on tuck 1.5 off. Stick! Chest a little low.

Iliankova RUS - nice full in. missed a pass for Shallon's vt. nice L turn. double tuck stuck and end pose.

1:47 Athlete presentation. New Russian leo on the left. Will try and get a better picture.

1:45PM: Ellie just told you to go chase your dreams. Do it!!!

1:40PM: They're presenting past Olympians! Ellie Black getting recognized as well. Loud roar for her! Flag presentation. Think it's a remix of I like to move it move it. I feel like I should be watching Madagascar right now.

1:33PM: Flash mob time!! Fireball by Pit Bull. I wonder if there's one at the end that the gymnasts can participate in as well.

1:30PM: Athletes were just advised to get ready for march in

1:26PM: Warm ups have finished but no athletes waiting by the events. Guessing we still have a few minutes.

    1. Whoops I'm only just now seeing this BUT Rose for vault and beam. Victoria did uneven bars.
