Mikhail Voronin Cup

The Voronin Cup will be held in Moscow on 7th December. It is an international invitational, it will be interesting to see just how international. I will try to go and watch.
Melnikova has confirmed her participation, so unlike most years, it is looking like the top Russians will compete. It is usually some lower tier gymnasts, some Moscow gymnasts and sometimes a top junior.

The womens results was

1st Angelina Melnikova 57.265
2nd Viktoria Listunova 56.33
3rd Vladislava Urazova 55.366
4th Alyona Glotova 54.698
5th Diana Kustova 54.232
6th Yana Vorona 53.065
7th Yelena Gerasimova 51.565

There was international representation from Belarus, Kazakhstan, Armenia, Mongolia and Serbia. China originally scheduled to send gymnasts but had to cancel due to their covid restrictions. I believe there was a cash prize awarded to the top overseas AA place

Unrelated to gymnastics but the Dutch footballer Quincy Promes who plays for Spartak was there with his 2 daughters who got some VIP meet and greet thing with Angelina Melnikova. Promes is basically hiding out in Russia and is wanted in the Netherlands on charges of attempted murder. He is due to stand trial early next year but there is no extradition agreement

The top scores seem…unlikely. Also, why would they be in peak form for the winter? It isn’t like there are big competitions they are scheduled to go to…

This is the big competition for them this year. Normally the top Russians don’t compete at this competition

Curios were you able to watch? Was Melnikova in would have beaten Andrade form as the scores suggests?
