For New Zealand, Misha Koudinov and Ethan Dick qualified as MAG AAers to worlds, while for WAG is was Reece Cobb and Madeleine Marshall.

A few more spots have been opened up for athletes to qualify via World Cup, since the Aussie women held 2 spots each on bars, beam and floor, while Marshall was in line to be a floor qualifier. Koudinov was ranked 7th on Pbars, and Mitchell Morgan was 4th on Hbar.

That is pretty tight between Australia and New Zealand MAG.
.8 is not too bad for New Zealand considering that they were 5 points from Australia last year.

For AUS WAG the 156.261 is about in line with what Romania scored at Europeans (different meets I know). I do think the 9th and final spot for a full team to Paris is going to be between Australia, Germany, and Romania.
 
Aussie WAG were also missing a couple of heavy hitters. No Georgia Godwin or Emily Whitehead.
 
Probably was smart to rest them and use them at Worlds.
Australia should be able to qualify, but they need to hit 16 solid routines so they can count 12 good scores.

Full results here:


Ruby Pass looks to be a game changer for Australia.
Pass, Godwin, Whitehead, Scott, and McDonald should get the job done. Georgia Rose Brown and Kate Sayer help with some depth the Aussies were lacking in the past.
 
Madeleine Marshall 44.966
Keira Rolston-Larking 44.965

The last Worlds spot in WAG was decided by rounding.
 
Aussie Nationals are being held in conjunction (actually, it’s the other way around. Oceania Continentals are tacked onto Aussie champs). Heath Thorpe won Men’s AA, while Georgia Godwin is leading after day 1. MAG events finals and WAG Day 2 are Saturday.
 
Georgia Godwin won, but new senior Ruby Pass made it close, and busted out a DTY one day 2. 108.932 to 108.564. Ruby could be the difference maker for Australia’s qualification hopes.

Breanna Scott didn’t compete, even though she did Continentals last week.

Videos are being posted by “Gymnastics Stuff.” Here’s Ruby’s Day 1 floor:
