This and That: Worlds Edition
Kohei Uchimura has an injured shoulder and is unlikely to compete All-Around. Gymnastics Coaching watched the men's podium training and noted that Japan is unlikely to challenge China for the team title. Marian Dragalescu struggled on floor in podium training and face planted a few double doubles.
North Korea is appealing their suspension, but they are unable to compete at Worlds while appealing. Their main concern is being allowed to take a full team to next year's world championships in order to qualify a full team for the Olympics.
The Gymnastics Examiner is watching China's workout today and has live updates. Jiang Yuyuan is back to performing her old floor routine.
