Beautiful bars and beam, beam choreography is boring and typical China arm waves and disjointed set. A pause before the major acro/dance connections each time.
Not necessarily the full two seconds to warrant a deduction but she definitely went 3 seconds before the side somi.

In addition to Concorde’s artistry deductions I personally would also take:

  • Performance of the entire exercise as a series of
    disconnected elements & movements (lack of fluency) (.1)

I just feel like the routine did not flow and there were clear momentary pauses, the routine didn’t feel smooth or flowing to me.

8.5 (execution) - (.3 art)= 8.200 E score from me.

Let’s see if she can keep this up when she turns senior, she has lovely execution.

have they posted aa meet totals?

It’s interesting to me that the Chinese are still doing C dismounts on beam… I wonder if they will continue to do that at worlds… they lose at least .3 per gymnast

  • Regarding the adjustment deductions for the movements before the switch ring leap and side somi, I don’t find these movements to add true choreographical value to the routine. In other words, if they were removed the flow of the exercise would not be altered.

I suppose the question is… do they actually? I have been wondering whether some gymnasts will keep the simpler dismounts they can do easily and cleanly even with the new requirement.

Yikes.

VT is not looking good for China.

At this point I think He Kexin coming back is the solution. Her bars were brilliant, so she might actually be chosen for major teams despite having a useful DTY, and also it would be hilarious.

It’s not that hilarious. How old is she now? 24?

MaryClare, are you suggesting she was only 10 in Beijing? :innocent:

I wouldn’t bet against it.

Hehe. But there are loads of gymnasts competing into their late 20s now, it’s not even that unusual any more. She’s younger than Ferrari, the Wevers sisters, Becky Downie. I accept that this specific proposal is unlikely but I’d actually love to see Chinese WAGs getting the opportunity to compete internationally for longer as well. It is harder in more competitive programmes, no denying it, but then the US and Russia have both had top gymnasts go on into their mid 20s on a fairly frequent basis in recent years.

Zhang Jin is the only one of those five likely to make the World team.

Good for Wang Yan in her comeback!
