Mother Russia Master Theatre
Aliya Mustafina an Mother Russia lead prelims at Worlds. It was clearly just part of the plan to look like utter shit during podium training.
Mustafina leads the AA over Rebecca Bross and stuck her Amanar and brand knew Khorkintosh vault. She could very well be the bitch who keeps Alicia Sacramone from becoming World Vault Champion.
Tatiana Nabieva will join Aliya in AA Finals because Ksenia Afanasyeva earned a bar score typically seen by a Parkette at a zone meet. Nabieva hit bars but will not be a finalist.
The Americans had a very solid day but find themselves in third, just a tenth behind China. Mattie Larson missed floor and will not make floor finals.
Bridget Sloan actually proved to be worthwhile by hitting bars. Martha will have to choose between Mattie and Sloan for the third spot on floor during team finals. Martha will be white knuckling it in the stands.
Other USA Prelims routines in leos I'm adoring:
Macko Caquatto on bars
Rebecca Bross on beam
Aly Raisman on floor
USAG Interviewed the girls after the meet. They clearly provide the girls with Fox Neews Talking Points. "This is only prelims, this is only prelims, this is only prelims..."
Beth Tweddle will also not be a floor finalist. Glory to God in the highest. And peace to His people on Earth. Lord God, heavenly king, almighty God and Father. We worship you, we give you thanks, we praise you for your glory.
Huang Qiushuang looks to be a favorite for a medal on bars. We can only hope she pushes Beth off the rostrum. Did I say push? I meant SHOVE.
Ana Porgras is still the favorite for gold on beam:
