Kaylia Nemour's best bars set yet? Would it have won Worlds?

Wow.

Doing it quickly in my head, is this 6.6 + 8.4ish? The winner had 14.966. I seriously believe this is just as good, maybe slightly better.

Komova (E) + 0.2 + Stalder full (D) + 0.1 + Ray-half (E) + 0.1 + Yezhova (D) + 0.1 + Chow (D) + 0.1 + Pak (D) + 0.1 + van Leeuwen (E)
Piked stalder full (E) + 0.1 + double layout (D) + 0.2 dismount bonus

2.0 in requirements + 4E4D + 1.0 bonus = 6.6

ETA… Okay, maybe 6.5 … I don’t think that Ray-half is creditable after all. So the same as she did a couple months ago.

I’m curious how that stalder full is being judged. By the time she finishes adjusting her grip, her body is certainly -0.5 territory…

I have her around an 8.1-8.2 and 6.5, so not quite in my mind

It’s very good though and will be even better if she can clean up the spots with soft feet and leg separations as well as the handstands and the turn on the Ray-half

As far as we know she can’t compete in most competitions in 2023, right? Her year out for switching countries expires sometime in the summer, which would be too late for any of the events which act as qualifiers for the World Championships.

If she is unable to compete at the 2023 African Championships to get to Worlds, then she can still qualify through the 2024 Continentals (All-Around only) or 2024 World Cup Series.
Most likely the later would get her in as a bars specialist, but she can only compete that event in Paris. If she aims for all around she would need to qualify at the 2024 African Championships.

I mean missing basically a whole year of competition sucks anyway, but thinking about the Olympics anyone who doesn’t go to Worlds this year is taking a big chance that they won’t be injured with the World Cups that count for Paris qualification being so tightly packed together.

Olympic apparatus qualifiers can compete on all apparatus though, like in Tokyo, and unlike the qualification system for Worlds.

Has that changed? Last I saw, World Cup qualifiers are limited to the event they qualify for.

Kaylia just won the Algerian AA title, as well as all four event finals.
She scored 14.9 on bars, although this seems a very high score considering those legs separations, flexed feet and short handstands…

She also hit the low bar on her Yezhova right?

She’s going to be an interesting gymnast to watch. No idea why she’s doing 4 tumbling passes, though, and no idea what that third line is going to be when she upgrades from the simple back layout. She needs to fix lots of basic little things on bars, too, but the bones are there for a medal-contending set.
