The 2010 world championships is the first one where He Kexin is age-eligible with her pre-2007 birthdate, Jan 1, 1994. Magically her birthday became Jan 1, 1992 when she reached the national team in 2007.
Regardless of age, He is one of the best bars specialists in history. She ensured the Chinese team a gold in Beijing, and captured their only EF gold. She's been held out of the all-around her entire senior career to concentrate on bars, where she never, ever lost.
It's hard going first in EFs, and harder since she had evidence of the cray-cray before she mounted. Her eyes were doing the wild pony before saluting.
She'll once again be dominant on bars once she finishes this growth spurt at almost
The next logical choice was teammate Huang Qiushuang, putting on an insane clinic in code-whoring el-grip pirouettes until she pulled a headcase on a low bar transition.
But today, call her FedEx, because bitch delivered:
She even trained double-double dismounts, but didn't need it after He & HQS fell. The other competitors were now gunning for silver.
HBIC shrugged, ignored Beth, and swung for gold. HBIC didn't get it, because she hasn't learned to not throw her teammates under a bus and a step on the dismount, but HBIC wanted. that. gold.
Next, if you're into extreme sports and wipeout montages, then you'll love Elizabeth Seitz's routine. Bitch went out swinging for the rafters, pancaking to the mat from both her Def & her piked Ray. She made me feel like a 1991 high bar final.
Porgras swung a nice routine, as everyone kind of checks out since she swings great bars... for a Romanian. They're the bars short-bus country of Europe. They're like the Sacramone of Europe, or the Raisman of Europe, or Ponor. Tim Dagget was so hyperventilating about Ana that he declared her the best Romanian on bars of all-time. Because Olympic bars champion (and wife of his 1984 Olympic teammate Bart Conner) Nadia Comaneci never existed, nor did Olympic bars & 2-time World Champion Daniela Silivas.
Bridget "wake me when it's worlds" Sloan swung a solid routine, but without her wonky-foot Tkachev and full-twisting double layout, is only rocking a 6.0D score.
Teammate Rebecca "whiter-than-white" Bross politely shoved Sloan from the podium with .2 higher in D & E - how very catty! J'adore. Bross' routine was soooooooo easy & perfectly executed that one starts fantasizing how Valeri will code-whore that baby for 2012. Papa Liukin can you hear me?
Final placements were 1) Muppet Face 2) HBIC 3) Whiter Shade of Whitey White
