And, unlike Tokyo, those who qualify on an event can only do that event in Paris. No AA for event specialists this time.
Gymcastic said otherwise.

I think it makes sense the athlete only compete the event they qualified on, and is what Worlds was like.
 
It might be to do with logistics. At the Olympics there's only 12 WAG apparatus specialists and 18 MAG, whereas there could be up to 32 and 48 at worlds. In practice some specialists obviously qualify on multiple events for worlds, but still the numbers are higher.
 
It is definitely due to time constraints at Worlds. They are barely shoving everyone into 3 days of qualifications as it is. There is plenty of room to let people do AA at the Olympics and still easily fit qualifications into only 2 days since we're limited to 192 athletes.

There were 409 athletes qualified to compete at 2023 Worlds.
 
It is confusing. I had to go back and check why Hilary Heron ended up competing AA at worlds and why there was ever any question over that in the first place.
