Olivia Greaves and Yul Moldauer will represent the U.S. Melnikova and Nagorny for Russia.

Wonder if Greaves will hit bars.

Also, Moldauer will compete with Ciena Alipio at Arthur Gander Memorial
Men select 4 events to compete and women select 3 events to compete. The man with the highest 4 event total wins and the woman with the highest 3 event total wins.

Swiss Cup is a mixed pairs competition/elimination tournament. Greaves and Moldauer are a pair for the US.

Live Results:

Alipio put up a monster 8.9 e-score on beam. 5.0/8.9/13.9

She got the same exact score on vault

Hmmm, I wonder if there’s an data entry error.

I imagine Melka will omit beam from her program lol. Edit: she did

Melnikova VT (5.4) 14.650
Melnikova UB (6.3) 14.850

Melnikova FX (5.2) 13.700
Melnikova 3 event total: 43.200

Alipio’s beam was an entry error. 13.9 for vault, 12.85 for beam. She finished 3rd.

No she was 4th.
Looks like she had a 6.300 E score on UB (5.4+6.3=11.7) and 6.95 E score on BB (5.9+6.95=12.850)
So not a good day for her with falls on bars ad likely on beam, though 6.95 could be a few wobbles and a few errors added up.

Moldauer won!!!

He is the first MAG from USA to win this meet since it began in 1984.

Congrats!

It looks like Hubareva’s floor score was dropped by 2.45, moving her to fourth and putting Boura in 2nd and Alipio in 3rd:

This looks better than worlds :thinking: this woman is on a rrrrrroll

Do my eyes deceive me, or was that orphan half almost in handstand? I don’t refer to it as a Komova here because if it’s not 30 degrees out I don’t see that it qualifies.

Yes this might be the one instance that the Komova III is done without deduction. Davai!

This looks so clean. I have it at 9.0 E (it’s half her set)
She really should have gone to worlds over Frazier or McClain.
I hope she performs well here.

Gelya pretty frequently does a deduction-free orphan half. Sometimes it’s a .1 when it seems she’s going for a more precise toe-full. Usually one is great and the other is subpar, never both being excellent.
