Looks like the US is planning on sending athletes to the Cairo world cup. Cheryl Hamilton is slated to judge.
It is really disappointing with the Olympic Channel now being defunct, that we no longer see the World Cups broadcast. It was really fun to watch the meets before.
^^ it makes no sense in 2023
I suppose it fits quite well with the vibe of us watching worlds qualifications sideways through someone’s phone.
Wasn’t that Diego Hypolito who was streaming Pan Am Games qualifications through his phone using Twitch?
Those were the good old days.
Qiu’s senior international debut! She did not include the layout Jaeger, Komova II transition, or inbar-entry piked Tkachev release (is this the Scheder?)
If she gets all credit, her floor is 5.8D. Did judges downgrade triple turn, triple twist and switch full?
Say what we will about her technique, but it’s nice to see those first two passes landed fully upright, and quite high actually.
I was pleasantly surprised by the first half of her floor actually!
Those leaps on beam though… She really struggled through that leap series. In fact, I really struggled through that leap series.
I noticed Chusovitina competed on bars here, and was registered for beam but didn’t compete. Is she going to attempt to get to the Olympics by the AA route again? I don’t think it’s likely to happen this time.
That was probably a good score the last time she competed bars
What incurs a .3 deduction?
Time getting back on after a fall?
Streaming link is this https://www.alkass.net/alkass/live.aspx?ch=five
It’s listed for 15:45 local time tomorrow, which is 12:45 UTC for anyone who is able to watch at that time on a Friday.
Watching it I was wondering how many leaps/jumps she was going to have to do before she got 2 that were connected
She is really going to need to work on the dance elements as they were really rough here
Camelia Voinea retired the year Chuso won the USSR Jr. Championship…in a few days Voinea’s daughter will be in the same final as Chuso
