Lu Shanzhen told IG that China underestimated the strength of the Russian Women going into Worlds. He had seen videos of their Amanars but thought they were sloppy and would be devalued. Lu claims that Huang Qiushuang trains an Amanar, but he wouldn't let her compete it due to her having a leg separation during the preflight. Jiang Yuyuan also still trains it. He said the Chinese had no choice but to go for full bar difficulty in finals due to Mother Russia's advantage on vault. He excepts the Chinese to have several 6.5 vaults by 2012.
