And it makes me sad. I hope my area/state starts catching up on vaccination rate soon so I can go to Trials.

If my rusty Cyrillic is correct:

  2. Urazova
  3. Vorona
  4. Melnikova
  5. Akaimova
  6. Gerasimova
  7. Minaeva (?)
  8. Simakova
… and I’m lost at that point. Not sure if I don’t know the names or am just reading them wrong.

ETA: seeing the new seniors really underscores how much time has passed. Urazova looks about 21.

god these commentators just won’t SHUT. UP. during fx. It’s particularly egregious for me cause I have no idea what they’re saying lol.

Uzarova and Listunova looked a little underwhelming on floor to me, were they doing bigger passes before? It’s all so 1998-y. I do appreciate that Uzarova’s just like feck this shit y’all Imma do two godawful wolf turns back-to-back and imma smile thru it.

So the Olympic Team is fairly sorted out already. No surprises, the top 4 are the ones most predicted would be the Olympic Team.

1-4 in the AA: Listunova, Urasova, Melnikova, and Geraminasova.
Based off the beam disasters from the first 3, Geraminasova needs to be on that team.

Vorona was also solid on BB but fell on VT and three times on FX in day 2.

Still some time to go but this is very USA 2016 when it was pretty obvious which 5 it would be.
Depending on how tomorrow’s EF goes, I think the team will be:
TEAM: Listunova, Urazova, Melnikova, Gerasimova/Vorona
+1: Ilyankova/Minaeva/Gerasimova/Paseka

Paseka is still training, yeah? What a shame that Ilyankova fell in EF, as she’s probably Russia’s most realistic shot for a medal of all the +1 contenders. If Minaeva’s Nabieva 1/2 + Ezhova materializes, then she definitely has a great chance for the team.

Paseka is not training for this year. Has not retired officially, but likely is.
Interesting. She was training a DLO 1/1 on floor and a Bhardwaj in December. Seems like a bizarre time to back off of training–maybe her back is flaring up worse.

Her back is “fine”, according to her.

She stopped training because she didn’t qualify for Tokyo and “is 25 already” and doesn’t feel like it makes sense to try to stay for another quad.

So AA:
1 Listunova
2 Urasoza
3 Melnikova
4 Geraminasova

VT: Melnikova
UB: Urasoza
BB: Listunova
FX: Melnikova
