The GBR girls have a great draw!

Apart from that they’ll start at 21:45, but hope they can qualify for all the events expected and then have a better performance in the finals

so AS= Apparatus Specialists and AA= All Arounders.
Interesting that there are no longer traditional mixed groups so gymnasts from the same countries rotate together. Technically you could have gymnasts from one country in completely separate subdivisions or separate rotations.

Hasn’t the us ladies team gotten first sub the last few times or does it just feel that way?

I’m less concerned about the US being in Sub 1 and more concerned they’re ending in beam, honestly. I bet the extra rest before finals will be nice.

Apparently that sub finishes around 11pm! Hopefully they can rest a bit after

Did the just do the qualification draw? Am I missing the EF draw?

It’s all here, under files:

thank you!

its interesting and coincidence that USA usually either gets 1st subdivision or the last one. I remember in the old WWGYM forum that someone accused the FIG of favoring the US and always giving them the last subdivision when historically they often get either the 1st or 2nd one. I wish I had saved my post where I went back to 2001 Worlds and charted their draw from that point.

I wonder how controversial it would be to seed the teams….

I’ve been wondering about that. It had never occurred to me until this new continental qualification system and I started pondering if there should be an advantage to qualifying as a highly ranked team. However the inequity between continents makes it tricky.

Seeding would be an admission that there is an unfair advantage to later subdivisions. I know it’s oft said, but is there any statistical analysis proving it?


I feel like it would be more of an issue for the teams that are on the cusp of making finals, rather than the ones who qualify easily.

Not if the advantage is limited to “knowing what score I might need to qualify” which could have a bearing on whether to play safe.

Taking a hypothetical, if Hong Un Jong went up last in Rio VT EF, and Simone had fallen earlier on, she might not have thrown the Y3.0.

I miss the random draw of the AA.

Is this not a random draw or is usually like this?

No the AA finals is not a completely random draw. The top 6 are seeded to begin on vault and end on floor, where the 1st qualifier goes up last. Team finals is seeded as well. Only random in the meet is qualifications and then event finals.

The AA finals used to be completely random prior to 2003, that was when FIG changed the format to benefit TV broadcasts.

The field dropped from 36 (32 in 2001+ 2 subdivisions) to 24 in 2003. Since the number dropped by 12, FIG changed the per country limit from 3 to 2.

FIG did this in hopes that TV broadcasts would increase.

By moving from 36 to 24 athletes it eliminated 12 athletes which mean 48 less routines for the women and 72 less routines for the men. Which shortened the length of the meet.
Additionally with 6 athletes in a rotation for the women instead of 9, the meet was shortened further due to not having a break in the middle of the rotation for the second half warm up.

They originally changed the format in 2001 to 32 AA finalists which were divided into 2 subdivisions. #17-32 competed in the first subdivision (4 on each piece) and #1-16 competed in the second subdivision. The idea was that a television broadcast could show a great amount of the routines from the 16 competitors.
The audience in Ghent did not enjoy this format, so it was changed again for 2003.


I miss two vaults in the AA, counting the higher-score of the two, and having main contenders end on vault, with a medal placement dependent on that second vault.

Or maybe I just miss a Miller/Gutsu showdown?
