Women's Podium Training Final Session Continued
New post to get rid of the text issues. Romanians currently on vault. Catalina just vaulted a big yurchenko double.
Izbasa does a nice Mustafina vault. Blythe says it rivals Maroney's. Not buying that yet until I see it in person. Chelaru does a yurchenko double and then adds a half turn jump on the end. Planning to upgrade to an Amanar soon? The reports are bit confusing, but it appears Izbasa is trying out a Cheng vault as well.
Now Gym Examiner is saying Chelaru threw an Amanar timer. Belu and Bitang say: SURPRISE BITCHES!!!
Koko Tsurumi face plants a tumbling run to begin this rotation. Uneven Bar time for Romania! Catalina's Leo gets a break here. We don't want a Janet Jackson type incident happening.
Larisa Iordache makes it through her full bar routine. This is really the only important bar routine for the team.
Bulimar appears to be doing well on bars for a Romanian. I love this little spitfire! Unfortunately Koko Tsurumi might have sustained a concussion when she fell on the tumbling run I mentioned above. Our thoughts are with Koko. She's a lovely gymnast to watch.
Rie Tanaka for Japan is doing a floor routine to Pink Panther and James Bond music. Sounds like it will be a crowd-pleaser. Koko guts out a floor routine.
Balance beam time. My main bitch.
Larisa gets through her very difficult beam set without many problems. I would not count this girl out of the all-around even though Belu and Bitang are saying she won't compete all events. They love to shock people.
Catalina's Leo is working the beam over as she usually does. Fierce routine with no question marks regarding the connections (unlike a certain American...) Full-in dismount baby! It appears they might have taken Larisa's full on beam and have her tumbling to a two-foot layout. Probably a wise decision. Wobbly beam set from Izbasa.
Well that does it for podium training! It's been fun. Hai Romania!!!!

As crazy as this is going to sound, am I the only one who wouldn't be completely shocked to see Iordache in the AA? Think about it. They use her on bars & beam in qualies maybe both or just UB in team finals. Meanwhile she rests as much as she can and does some kind of rehab.Her doing AA would be such a huge shock and totally up Belu & Bitang's alley. Maybe this is all just wishful thinking on my part.....ReplyDelete
Um, in order to make AA she would have to do AA in the prelims, so the "huge shock" wouldn't really be that shocking...Delete
Not the OP, but I assume they mean the "huge shock" of Larisa competing AA in prelims... since Bitang has said she won't.Delete

I would love to see Larisa grit her way through all four events in prelims. I'm sure she's in a lot of pain, so I don't begrudge her for limiting herself to a couple of events (if that's what she ultimately does), but she is sooo talented and such a joy to watch... I'd love to see her have a shot at an all-around medal after a week of treatments.ReplyDelete
So, who thinks Chelaru will chuck an amanar on Sunday?ReplyDelete
I think Chelaru will chuck one aswell. Hopefully it will be better than what Paseka has been showing us lol.Delete
Larisa is such a lovely gymnast, very sad to think she won't have a chance at AA.ReplyDelete
Oh no, Koko! Love watching her, hope she recovers in time.
