Ukraine starts vault with a 13.4 from Mykyta Melnykov, a 14.466 from Petro Pakhniuk, and a 14.4 from Illia Kovtun!

1:44 pm. Artur Davtyan ARM VT: Beautiful Dragulescu, oh my god! 15.133!
Second vault is an equally gorgeous handspring randi, tiniest bounce on the landing. 15.166, and he averages a 15.149!
1:42 pm. Matteo Levantesi ITA FX: Jumped way too fast into this for me to start typing, but he hit the first few passes, I caught up at the 2.5 to front tuck full (small hop forward), and a triple full (small hop back). 13.666
1:41 pm. Really quick turnaround into the final rotation!
1:39 pm. Rayderley Zapata ESP FX: Front full-in half-out to start, aka the Zapata, king! 1.5 to piked double front, a little deep with a hop back. Dobule front half, huge with a graet landing. Arabian double front half-out stuck. 2.5 to front layout, stuck, and a double layout with a little bobble and a step back. Most of his landings were killer. 14.233!
1:38 pm. Andreas Toba GER HB: Wasn’t watching this super closely but he had a hard fall, I think on a Cassina potentially? 11.933
Germany will count a 12.333 but the other scores are 13.5 and 13.733, so nothing too bad.
1:36 pm. Jake Jarman GBR PB: Basket through to front pike up to handstand, significantly arches over in a subsequent handstand, and he walks a few steps forward out of it, Bhavsar, Tippelt, he looks calmer now, double front half with a little step. 14.133
1:35 pm. Igor Radivilov brings a 14.4 to Ukraine’s rings rotation, where the team will also count a 13.633 from Pantely Kolodii and a 12.733 from Petro Pakhniuk, dropping Illia Kovtun’s 12.566.
1:34 pm. Joe Fraser GBR PB: Clean first handstand, pirouetted right into a salto, that looked very fun, pirouettes are all going right to handstand, gets a little arched on a couple near the end, but overall this is fantastic, double front half-out with a strong landing. 15.066!!!
1:33 pm. Noe Seifert SUI PH: Arched over in the handstand on the single pommel, Sohn, circles on the single handle, goes into flairs pretty nicely, travels in flairs and then circles into the dismount, that was a really fun routine if not the tightest. 12.766
1:31 pm. Lukas Dauser GER HB: Some L grip front giants, Tak full almost vertical, Tak half a little short, Kovacs, piked Tkachev, straddle Tkachev, Rybalko finishes a bit late, Zou Li Min, one-arm giant, hop full, and a clean full-twisting double layout with a small hop forward. 13.500
So far a 14.133 from James Hall and a 14.666 from Giarnni Regini-Moran on p-bars!
1:30 pm. Joel Plata ESP FX: Double double layout, great landing! Randi goes a little off in direction with a hop to the side. Double double with a small hop back. Double full, stuck. Hit the next pass, I wasn’t paying close attention, connected twists. Front double full to something I think. 2.5 to front layout. Full-in with a hop forward.
Petro Pakhniuk has seemed pretty off all day today, unfortunately.
1:29 pm. Petar Vefic SRB VT: He looks like a TALL BOY. Kaz full with some form in the air and a hop OOB. 13.566
1:27 pm. Nestor Abad ESP FX: Front layout to piked double front with a big lunge forward OOB. Front full to double front, noooo, sits it!!! Side pass was a little messy, did he do a triple?? Really deep landing. Front double full with a step to the side. 12.433
Dominic Tamsel starts out Switzerland with a 13.2 on pommels, and Pantely Kolodii kicks off rings with a 13.633 for Ukraine.
1:26 pm. Moving to the second half of the fifth rotation shortly.
1:25 pm. Krisztian Balazs goes 13.966 to wrap up p-bars for Hungary!
1:21 pm. Matteo Levantesi HB: Tak half was a little iffy in the form, layout Tkachev, straddle Tkachev with a great split in the air, blind change to L grip, Tak, Zou Li Min, Yamawaki, stalder, hop full, double double layout dismount with a hop back. 13.533
Before him, Yumin Abbadini hit for a 13.8!
Some great rings for Armenia…14.633 from Artur Avetisyan and 14.666 from Vahagn Davtyan!
1:20 pm. Krisztofer Meszaros HUN PB: Great handstand before the pirouette between the bars, short on the handstand before a giant swing into a salto, came in a little low there, Tippelt, little adjustments before a Healy, and a double front half with a hop back. 14.233
Before him, Hungary picked up a 13.1 from Benedek Tomcsanyi and a 13.666 from Botond Kardos.
1:17 pm. Ivan Tikhonov AZE FX: Front layout to randi, huge, lands it with a heel out of bounds. Double layout nearly stuck. Front full to front double full, little bobble. Double full down the side, stuck. Whip to 2.5 and triple full both good! 13.600
Michalis Chari CYP VT: Handspring rudi, not bad! 13.900
1:16 pm. Marios Georgiou is a DNS on vault. Sigh. I had ALL the hopes and dreams for Cyprus here.
1:14 pm. Lorenzo Casali ITA HB: Yamawaki, Zou Li Min, Tak full, some ankle separation but finishes almost in handstand, Tak half also has some leg separation, layout Tkachev, straddle Tkachev, stalder, double double layout with a good landing, it looked something flew off of either him or the high bar as he dismounted?? Hahahaha. I’m dying to see slo-mo of that. 13.366
1:13 pm. Moving to the fifth rotation!
1:12 pm. Don’t think I saw anything from Germany on p-bars, unfortunately if they showed Lukas Dauser, I didn’t happen to catch it, but he went 14.766! Really great for both his personal goals and for the team, as they’re also counting a 13.566 and a 12.766.
1:10 pm. 13.933 from Noe Seifert means Switzerland will add a 41.799 on floor!
Sadly a 13.366 from Illia Kovtun on pommels, looked like he had a fall or mistake based on his 6.3 D, 7.066 E breakdown, and yet this is the highest for the team on this event.
Joe Fraser wraps up vault with a 14.3, they’re showing a replay now…decent Kaz 1.5, not his cleanest in the air, big step forward.
1:08 pm. Courtney Tulloch GBR VT: They’re showing a replay, he hit a huge Dragulescu and a tsuk full-in double tuck, the first was gorgeous, second wasn’t AS tidy and he had a step OOB. 14.700 average moves him second!
1:05 pm. Sorry, have needed to take my attention from the action for a minute, but here’s a little update…
Courtney Tulloch with a 14.8 on vault, GBR is going to have a massive score here!
Joel Plata ESP HB: Caught all of his releases, including two in the Kovacs family and two in the Tkachev family. Hit everything else, and stuck the full-twisting double layout. 14.000
Switzerland added a 13.833 on floor from 13.833 and then a 14.033 from Andrin Frey!
1:02 pm. Jake Jarman GBR VT: Dragulescu for his first vault, massive! Great landing as well. 14.833
I had to log into a meeting for work right as he started his second vault, think it was a kaz 2.5? He sat it though. Still scored a 14.033, averaging a 14.433!
1:00 pm. Giarnni Regini-Moran GBR VT: Kaz double full, great in the air! Little step on the landing. 14.966!
Handspring double front with a little hop on that landing. 14.683 average!
12:58 pm. Marco Pfyl SUI FX: Front double full to front layout, hits that Jesus on the cross position in the air, very nice. Front full to double front with a step forward, maybe OOB. 1.5 to front tuck full, hop forward, looked like a single toe was OOB. Arabian double front, lunge forward. 2.5 with a step forward.
12:55 pm. Matteo Levantesi ITA PB: I keep jumping in late to p-bars but he did really lovely work and stuck the double pike!
Marios Georgiou’s rings score is showing up as a zero so that means no AA at worlds for him (but he’s another one with the world cups as backup).
12:53 pm. Ooh, 14.5 on pommels from Harutyun Merdinyan! Won’t matter for worlds but he’ll qualify from the world cup rankings. He’ll definitely make this final!
Oop, going back to watch his routine now, really tight work throughout, Russians between the handles and at the end of the horse, aggressive in his swing, fabulous routine.
12:52 pm. Nicola Bartolini hit p-bars for a 13.633, pretty strong execution there.
12:48 pm. I didn’t pay super close attention during Artur Davtyan’s pommels routine, but notable that he’s not doing all-around here. Looks like he’ll rely on qualifying to worlds on several apparatuses via world cups. Good pommels routine here, though – 14.200.
12:47 pm. Botond Kardos HUN VT: Kaz full with a big lunge back, looked pretty similar to Balasz’s.
Before him, Benedek Tomcsanyi got a 13.933 for his vault.
12:46 pm. Krisztian Balasz HUN VT: Kaz full with a step back, very nice in the air! 13.766
12:43 pm. Moving to the fourth rotation!
Igor Radivilov had to go up on floor AND had the second best score, which should tell you what a bind Ukraine is in right now.
Spain counting all 14.1+ on p-bars!
12:40 pm. Illia Kovtun UKR FX: Front layout to double front, good! Piked double front was deep with a hop. 3.5 with a hop to the side. 2.5 to front layout. Great flair work in and out of handstand. Excellent triple full to finish. 14.466!
12:38 pm. Didn’t see p-bars from Nestor Abad or Thierno Diallo but they went 14.4 and 14.1, respectively! Spain straight killing it today.
Just got a replay of Abad’s routine just as I was updating the page so I didn’t get a chance to type but it was excellent in case the score didn’t reflect that! I was on the plane with him to Madrid after Doha worlds and feel blessed for this.
12:37 pm. Noe Seifert SUI HB: Tak half, right to Kovacs! Love that. Piked Kovacs as well. German giants. Triple tuck dismount! Small hop. I loved that routine. 14.133
12:36 pm. Courtney Tulloch GBR SR: Maltese, piked saltos through to handstand, planche, iron cross, tight form in his handstands, looks really great here overall, slightly piked on the full-twisting double layout, step back. 14.733
Germany wrapped up vault with a 14.2 from Lucas Kochan, a pretty low-scoring event for this team in comparison to other teams who are pulling in multiple mid-14s.
12:35 pm. Switzerland starting off well enough on high bar with a 13.233 from Andrin Frey and a 13.566 from Moreno Kratter.
12:34 pm. Joel Plata ESP PB: Came out of one handstand a little too quickly I think, but calmed down after that, very clean on a Bhavsar and Tippelt, double front half, doesn’t move his feet at all, slight wiggle with his arms. 13.933
12:32 pm. Joe Fraser GBR SR: Iron cross, double tuck to double pike to straddle planche, L sit pressed to handstand, double double with a little step back. 14.266!
13.533 for James Hall to start this rotation by the way.
12:31 pm. Lukas Dauser GER VT: Kaz full with a step forward. 13.633
12:30 pm. Glenn Trebing GER VT: Kaz full, pretty clean in the air, a little wobble on the landing. 13.766
12:28 pm. Good rings rotation for Hungary, counting all scores in the 13s, with a 13.6 from Balazs Kiss their highest. They’re doing much better than I thought they would here!
12:25 pm. Apostolos Kanellos GRE HB: Kolman, Kovacs, pretty clean, just slight separation, stalder, blind change to L grip, does some nice work there, hop full was a little crooked, oduble double layout, a little piked down with a step back. 12.633
12:23 pm. Ivan Tikhonov AZE PB: Wasn’t typing during this but it was a very strong routine! Had some salto elements and a good double front dismount. 13.800
12:20 pm. Nicola Bartolini ITA VT: Kaz 1.5 for his first vault with a step OOB. 14.300
Second vault was a GORGEOUS Shewfelt, also with a step OOB. 14.400
12:18 pm. Marios Georgios CYP PH: Gets the Sohn, but then loses his rhythm after going up into handstand on the flairs. Tries it again and gets it, transitions back down to flairs, loses his leg form a bit in his circles while traveling, then tries to muscle up the dismount but can’t get it and falls again. 12.033
12:17 pm. Stavros Gkinis GRE HB: Tkachev, gets through his circle elements with no big issues, full-twisting double layout with a hop.
Italy kicks off vault with a 13.933 from Matteo Levantesi. Saw a handspring double front from him in a replay.
12:15 pm. Moving to the third rotation!
12:12 pm. Andreas Toba GER SR: Wasn’t typing during this but it was a strong and well-controlled routine! 13.966, Germany’s best on this event.
Great Britain will have to count a 13.133 on pommels, scrapping Jarman’s 13.033.
12:10 pm. Illia Kovtun UKR HB: One-arm front pirouette, Yamawaki, oh no, catches the first Tkachev basically on his chin, has to re-start his swing. Second Tkachev was fine. Hits the rest, including a hop full, and a double double layout dismount with a hop. 12.433
12:08 pm. Marco Pfyl SUI PB: Wasn’t typing but he did really well, had a couple of strong salto elements, but then stumbled back and sat the double pike dismount. Ugh, that was looking to be a huge score, and he ends up with a 13.700.
Before him, a 14.066 from Dominic Tamsel and a 12.9 from Andrin Frey.
12:07 pm. Ukraine struggling a bit on high bar with a 12.733 from Pantely Kolodii followed by a 9.533 from Mykyta Melnykov. Hope they can make it through the final two routines without any big mistakes…
12:06 pm. Rayderley Zapata ESP VT: Handpring piked double front, bends his knees a bit in the second flip, deep landing with a step forward. 14.600!
Second vault is a kaz full with a step back.
12:05 pm. Joe Fraser GBR PH: Scissors to handstands, Russians between the handles, travels in Russians back and forth, circles up to pirouettes into the dismount, this was excellent. 14.600!
12:03 pm. Jake Jarman GBR PH: Wasn’t typing during this set but it was a really strong routine for him, Russians between the handles, good transitions, glad to see him make it through! 13.033
Before him, James Hall got a 13.933.
Joel Plata ESP VT: Dragulescu, pretty big, lunge back. 14.766!
Nicolau Mir before him got a 14.700! Spain crushing it on vault, with Rayderley Zapata still to come.
12:01 pm. Glenn Trebing GER SR: Iron cross to L sit to iron cross, saltos to L sit, twists slowly in the double double but gets a good landing!
Nestor Abad ESP VT: Kaz 1.5, huge, just takes a big step to the side OOB. 14.100
11:59 am. Krisztofer Meszaros wrapped up pommels with a 13.233 for Hungary, their top score there.
Andrea Cingolani brings a 14.066 on rings, not Italy’s best rings without Marco Lodadio, but not devastating either.
11:54 am. Ivan Tikhonov averages a 14.383 on vault! Just saw a Kaz 1.5 with a lunge forward for his first vault in the replay, and then a Yurchenko double pike, super deep landing with a lunge forward.
Marios Georgiou CYP FX: Front full to double front, double double with a little slide back. 2.5 to front layout was hit. Triple full with a wild landing, leg practically goes up into a Y turn position haha. Still a pretty solid score with a 13.533!
11:53 am. Georgios Angonas CYP FX: Wasn’t typing during this routine but it was a hit! Just realized Ilias Georgiou didn’t do high bar, though, and they really needed that score.
Lorenzo Casali ITA SR: Planche to L hold, swinging quite a lot. A little shaky in some of the handstands. 13.500
11:48 am. Nicola Bartolini ITA SR: L hold to straddle planche, saltos through to straddle hold pressed to handstand, sways a little bit, double double with a hop back. Stuck the double double dismount. 12.833
A couple of high 12s and a low 13 for Hungary on pommels. Could be worse!
11:47 am. Moving to rotation two!
11:44 am. Joe Fraser GBR FX: Piked double front with a hop. Front layout to double front with a lunge forward. 1.5 to rudi, a little low with a hop. Stuck the double full down the side. Arabian double front, and then a full-twisting double tuck to finish. 13.633
Highest score for Spain on rings went to Rayderley Zapata with a 14.033!
11:42 am. Illia Kovtun UKR PB: Walks a little out of a handstand half turn, then arched over a single rail transition. Arched over and walked out of 1.5 pirouette, some more adjustments on another transition, and a double front with a hop. Well, could have been a lot tighter, but should score the best for the Ukrainians! 14.766
Only a 13.0 from Petro Pakhniuk before him.
11:40 am. Jake Jarman GBR FX: Full-twisting double layout with a step back. Double double with a slight hop. 2.5 to front layout to front double full, okay sir! Double full. Front full to randi, and a stuck triple full (legs a couple feet apart) to finish. 14.466
11:38 am. Lukas Dauser GER PH: Mostly clean routine, I didn’t see anything aggressively off, Russians at both ends of the horse were strong, looked especially clean into the dismount. 13.166
Before him, Nils Dunkel got a 14.366! Great rotation for these guys.
Giarnni Regini-Moran gets a 14.266 for his work on floor!
11:36 am. Joel Plata ESP SR: Starts off well, I saw an iron cross, some salto elements, I think the pikes went to handstand, another controlled handstand after that, and he dismounts with a double double, sticks it! Good for him.
Only a 12.733 for Courtney Tulloch to start on floor.
Ukraine also off to a bit of a slow start on p-bars, just a 12.166 from Pantely Kolodii and 13.433 from Mykyta Melnykov.
Noe Seifert SUI VT: Does a Yurchenko double, good landing. 14.066
11:33 am. Andrin Frey SUI VT: Yurchenko half-on front layout 1.5 with a really strong landing. Dude Cheng! 14.233
Does a massive Dragulescu for his second vault! That one goes 14.533, and he averages a 14.383.
Before him we got a 13.566 from Marco Pfyl and a 13.166 from Moreno Kratter, not a bad start.
11:32 am. Andreas Toba GER PH: Excellent set to start Germany off on a high note. Had mostly strong hip extension, and goes smoothly into the pirouette for the dismount. 13.866!
11:28 am. Krisztofer Meszaros HUN FX: 2.5 to double front, love that for him. Double double is strong. Randi, stuck. Front double full to front layout. 1.5 to front full. Stuck the triple full! 14.500!
11:26 am. Nikita Simonov AZE SR: Planche down to inverted hang, saltos through to maltese, legs angled down a bit, to iron cross, full-twisting double layout, stuck! 14.600!
11:25 am. Nicola Bartolini ITA PH: Starts off well, slight pike in his hips before the handstand flairs, comes down to flairs across the horse as well, circles go well up to handstand pirouette, so good there! 13.566
11:23 am. Marios Georgiou CYP HB: One-arm front pirouette, Cassina was very nice, Kolman, legs apart, inbar, blind change to Zou Li Min, Endo, stalder, double double layout with a small hop. Fab! 14.233
11:21 am. Krisztian Balasz HUN FX: Randi with a little hop. Front full to double front with a small hop. 2.5 to front layout, another small hop. Double full side pass, slight hop. Front double full with a hop back. Triple full, a bit bouncy on that landing, big step back OOB. 12.966
11:18 am. Matteo Levantesi ITA PH: Legs came apart when he was circling on the single handle, but that aside, this was fine for a lead-off routine. 12.866
Stavros Gkinis GRE VT: Kaz, lunge back. 12.833
11:15 am. Okay, it looks like things are updating pretty slowly still, and even just visiting the website, it’s quite slow. But hopefully things improve.
Touch warmups start now!

11:03 am. Leo Saladino FRA HB: Tak full was a bit late. Pretty clean on the Kovacs, one-arm giant, moves to front giants in L grip, hops back to reverse grip fro the Endo, and a double double layout, ambiguous form in the air, but another great hit routine for him. 13.033
11:01 am. Robert Kirmes FIN PH: Started off well, Sohn was smooth, loses some form on some of his circles in the middle of the routine, pirouette into the dismount wasn’t bad. 13.266
10:59 am. Sofus Heggemsnes NOR PB: Lovely handstand before the Tippelt, a little slow to get that to handstand, Healy out of it was super clean, but had a little adjustment in the next pirouette. Full-twisting double tuck dismount. 13.666!
10:58 am. Elias Koski FIN PH: Scissors to handstand, a little muscled, but once he’s in his circles he looks pretty confident and his hip angle is pretty open as well! 13.233
Before him, a 12.233 from Tarmo Kanerva, and a 12.400 from Oskar Kirmes.
Looked like a miss potentially for Jacob Karlsen on p-bars, just a 10.566.
10:56 am. Julien Saleur FRA HB: Front full pirouette, Tak full was quite late, Tak half, inbar, stalder, Yamawaki to Endo, and a full-twisting double layout with a hop. 12.866
10:55 am. Cameron-Lie Bernard FRA HB: Saw most of this, looked pretty well hit!
Jose Nogueira POR VT: Kaz full, really strong! 13.900
10:52 am. Moving to the final half of the last rotation any second now!
Ooh, just noticed Alexander Benda had a 13.500 on floor, looked like a pretty good day for him!
10:49 am. Gabriel Burtanete ROU VT: Going back to look at this after the fact, the first vault is a kaz double and the second is a Dragulescu with a slight hop back!
10:46 am. Adem Asil TUR SR: Very clean maltese to inverted hang up to inverted cross, piked saltos to maltese, swings through to iron cross, inverted hang up to planche, handstand after is great, arches slightly in the next one, and almost sticks the double double dismount, tiny bounce. 14.933!!!
Nice 14.066 from Karl Idesjö of Sweden on p-bars!
10:45 am. Noah Kuavita BEL HB: Tak half, layout Tkachev, layout Kovacs, Kovacs, straddle Tkachev, Tak full RIGHT in vertical!!! Stalder, piked triple back! DAMN!!!!
10:44 am. Ooh, Loran de Munck of the Netherlands just got a 14.566 on pommels! That should bring him into first place?!
Gabriel Burtanete with a 14.733 average on vault! 14.833 for his first vault and 14.633 for his second. That should take the lead.
10:43 am. Ahmet Önder TUR SR: Wasn’t typing during most of this but his saltos to iron cross were strong, also had a straddle planche and a double double dismount with a small step back. 13.933
10:41 am. Dutch men start pommels with a couple of 11-range scores, including 11.566 from Jordi Hagenaar and 11.866 from Jermain Gruenberg.
Mehmet Ayberk Kosak goes 14.2 on rings!
10:39 am. Razvan-Denis Marc ROU VT: Really nice kaz full with a lunge back. 14.000
Followed up by a 13.966 from Robert Burtanete and 13.933 from Andrei Muntean, who went for a Kaz 1.5 and stumbled back a bit.
Kerem Sener kicked Turkey off on rings with a 13.266, not bad!
10:35 am. Moving into the final rotation!
10:33 am. Emil Soravuo FIN FX: Something to double front, I missed the very beginning of that pass but the landing was great, front layout to front double full, full-in, tried to stick on his toes but he hops forward. Double full, stuck. 2.5 to front tuck full, stuck it, just clicks his heels together. Beautiful stuck triple full. 14.133!!!
10:31 am. Robert Kirmes FIN FX: Ooh, did he open with a 3.5 to front layout?! Randi after that was strong, and then a 2.5 to front tuck full. Tucked full-in with a good landing. 1.5 to rudi. Triple full to finish. 13.833
10:30 am. Paul Degouy FRA PB: Had a really nice handstand at the beginning that he held forever, but on a pirouette that transitioned between the bars he lost some leg form and arched a bit in handstand. Tippelt was very nice. Great double pike dismount.
10:27 am. Leo Saladino FRA PB: Slight adjustments in a couple of handstands early on, cleans up after, clean Tippelt, 1.5 turn was a little iffy in the pirouette but gets it under control quickly, has another pirouette with a slight arch, and I think he has a full-in dismount? Looked like a small hop. 13.866
10:25 am. Elias Koski FIN FX: Ooh, GORGEOUS whip to 2.5! Front layout to front double full. Double tuck clean with a little hop back, heels OOB. Double full and triple full, very nice! 13.200
10:23 am. Great start for Norway on vault – 14.0 from Peder Skogvang and 14.133 from Jacob Karlsen!
Sofus Heggemsnes NOR VT: Kaz 1.5, bounces forward on the landing, but excellent in the air! 14.500!
10:21 am. Oskar Kirmes FIN FX: Double front, good! Front layout to rudi with a little stumble back. Triple full, a little hop to the side. 1.5 to front tuck full. Ugh, sits the 2.5 at the end.
10:19 am. Ferhat Arican TUR PH: Didn’t see this one but he went 14.300!
10:18 am. Haven’t seen anything from Belgium on p-bars but looks like they’re killing it! A couple of 13.5s and a 14.0 from Noah Kuavita will count.
Also shoutout to Sweden’s vault rotation…13.4 from Joakim Lenberg, 13.733 from Karl Idesjö (he also had a great rings last rotation), and 14.033 from David Rumbutis!
10:15 am. Alexander Benda AUT HB: I normally love him on this apparatus. Let’s hope he does well! Huge Kolman, Kovacs, layout Tkachev, straddle Tkachev, hop full, stuck the full-twisting double layout, GORGEOUS routine!
10:14 am. Ahmet Önder TUR PH: Scissors to handstand, circles, Sohn, Russians on the single pommel, hips start to close a little on the circles after, travels in Russians, Russians at the end, slight leg separation up into the dismount, good hit! 13.500
10:10 am. Adem Asil TUR PH: Only a 10.9 from Kerem Sener so the next three guys will have to be 100% basically. Scissors, moving well overall, a little low to the horse with his hips, Russians go well, and smooth into the dismount. Phew! 13.300
Jermain Gruenberg NED FX: I missed his first pass but he stuck a double front after, 2.5 to front tuck full, a little short there. Double full. Front full to barani. Triple full with a lunge back.
10:07 am. Jordi Hagenaar NED FX: Hit the first two passes, I think double front pike and tuck? 2.5 to front layout and then kind of an iffy double full side pass. Triple full, ankle cruncher there with a hop to the side. 13.033
10:04 am. Moving to the fifth rotation!
10:02 am. Tomas Kuzmickas LTU FX: I missed the very beginning, but believe he hit everything? Caught from the 2.5 to front layout. Clean double full. Triple full, slightly deep, small hop. 13.133
10:00 am. Jacob Karlsen NOR SR: Maltese to iron cross, pike through to iron cross, saltos through to L hold pressed to handstand, slightly short in the handstand after, but the rest is good, full-twisting double layout, pikes it down a little, but stuck! 13.733
9:58 am. Titas Kuzmickas LTU FX: Double tuck with a lunge back. Rudi was clean. Double full, chest sliiiightly forward. Clean layout side pass, stuck. 2.5 with a little bounce at the end. 12.400
Jacob Karlsen went 13.733 on rings, so Norway will count two 13+ scores as well as a 12.866, not a bad rings rotation!
9:56 am. Elias Koski FIN HB: Endo full, Tak half, layout Tkachev, straddle Tkachev, stalder, full-twisting double layout, slightly deep with a step forward.
9:53 am. Sofus Heggemsnes NOR SR: Way short handstand at one point that gets him swinging a bit, corrects and the next one is better. Saltos through to L hold, stuck the double double dismount! 13.300
Just got to go back and see Saladino’s vaults, I didn’t catch the first one fully but may have been a kaz double full? Double front for the second was excellent! 14.483 I believe moves him into first place!
9:51 am. Oskar Kirmes FIN HB: Endo full, a little late, Tak was a bit wonky, but he got it around, huge Kovacs, Tak half, full-twisting double layout with a small hop. 12.866
More great vaults from France! 14.4 from Paul Degouy and 14.6 from Leo Saladino!
9:49 am. Julien Saleur FRA VT: Kaz full, landed super lock-legged but basically stuck! I yelped but he’s smiling so okay then. 14.066
Benjamin Osberger got a 14.000 after him.
9:47 am. Guilherme Campos POR PH: Some leg form breaks throughout but a well-fought routine. 10.933
9:43 am. Ahmet Önder TUR FX: Front full to piked double front, a little too far forward, step OOB. 2.5 to front layout, good landing there. Double double stuck! Clean double full. Full-in with a small hop back. Triple full nearly stuck! 14.266
9:40 am. Adem Asil TUR FX: Front full to front double pike, then a front layout to double front, great landing. Double double with a hop back. Arabian double front, hop forward. Full-twisting double back at the end. Woo! 14.266
Turkey had only a 9.766 from Kerem Sener in the first routine, so it looks like they’ll have to count a 12.5 from Mehmet Ayberk Kosak.
Pommel horse getting to Romania a bit, and Sweden and Austria coming up a bit short in their SR and PB rotations right now, all mid-12 scores for both teams so far.
9:39 am. Noah Kuavita BEL VT: Ooh, huge and near-stuck handspring double front! 14.500!
Great vault rotation for Belgium overall.
9:37 am. Jordi Hagenaar NED HB: Layout Tkachev, straddle Tkachev, German giants to stalder, inbar, double double layout stuck! 13.566
9:34 am. Jermain Gruenberg NED HB: Tak half, Kovacs, Tak, Endo, stuck the double double layout. 13.466
9:31 am. Moving to the fourth rotation now!
Pommels wasn’t very high-scoring for Norway, though Sofus Heggemsnes contributed a 12.966 as the anchor.
9:28 am. Jose Nogueira POR FX: Double layout, front layout to double front landed OOB. Piked double front was gorgeous. 2.5 down the side. Strong triple at the end. 13.400
9:27 am. Elias Koski FIN PB: Beautiful work at the start of his routine, very few adjustments. Piked double back was very nice, step back. 13.400
9:24 am. Guilherme Campos POR FX: Think he started with an arabian double front, then hit a big 3.5! Front double full to front layout. Layout full side pass. 2.5 to front full with a step. Triple full with a hop back. 13.300
I’m only going to add scores now if they’re remarkable in some way, it’s just a lot to constantly scroll for numbers when I’m trying to watch the routines!
Looks like rings is going to hurt France a lot, just lacking a lot there. Thankfully they are able to count a 13.7 from Leo Saladino in the anchor spot!
9:21 am. Robert Tvorogal LTU HB: Tak full, a little late, Tak half, layout Tkachev, straddle Tkachev to piked Tkachev, hop full, Rybalko, stalder, full-twisting double layout, a bit deep with a big step forward. 13.966
9:20 am. Paul Degouy FRA SR: Wasn’t typing for most of this but saltos up to handstand had a slight sway, also hit the piked double front, step back there. 13.200

Saba Abesadze GEO VT: 12.866
Gytis Chasazyrovas LTU HB: 12.300
9:17 am. Jacob Karlsen NOR PH: Scissors with a little muscle to handstand, arched over slightly. Loses his leg form slightly into the dismount, and then he comes up short on the dismount as well, doesn’t make it across the horse. 11.300
Benjamin Osberger FRA SR: 13.100
Ioane Jimsheleishvili GEO VT: Very nice Kaz full! 14.000
9:15 am. Moving to the warmup for the second half.
9:13 am. Ahmet Önder TUR HB: Cassina, Kolman, solid on both. layout Tkachev, a little low, straddle Tkachev, blind change to L grip, Tak full almost vertical, Tak half, hop full, and a double double layout with a small hop. Awesome. 14.233
Gabriel Burtanete ROU FX: 13.100
Jermain Gruenberg NED PB: 14.166
9:12 am. Noah Kuavita BEL SR: Iron cross, saltos look really tight, came up really short on a handstand with a bend in the elbows, doesn’t really push out of it, and hits a full-in dismount. 12.266
9:09 am. Adem Asil TUR HB: Yamawaki to Endo, Tak half, oh god, goes for a Tak full I think but falls apart halfway through and loses his rhythm, gets it back before a couple of Tkachevs, step back on the full-twisting double layout dismount. 12.633
Karl Idesjö SWE PH: 5.266 (looks like this is mostly due to short exercise penalties, he had -4.0 ND)
Glen Cuyle BEL SR:
9:08 am. William Sundell SWE PH: Really tidy work from him! Wasn’t typing during this or paying super close attention but it was overall a very nice routine. 13.400

Alexander Benda AUT VT: Kaz full, some leg form in the air. 13.800
9:02 am. Razvan-Denis Marc ROU FX: Piked double front, a little deep there. Double front with a little hop. Front double full comes up short but he somehow manages to get the front tuck around. 2.5 to front full goes well enough, some leg form. Triple full with a step back. 12.833
Joakim Lenberg SWE PH: 11.633
Luka van den Keybus BEL SR: 12.766
Jordi Hagenaar NED PB: 13.633

9:00 am. Moving to the third rotation!
8:57 am. Benjamin Osberger FRA PH: Scissors to handstand, lovely on the Sohn, circles up and down between the pommels and horse, hips aren’t bad, mostly extended aside from a few moments where they close slightly but nothing severe at all. Great and fluid on the dismount. 14.366!
Saba Abesadze GEO SR: 13.033
Jose Nogueira POR HB: 12.533
8:53 am. Robert Tvorogal LTU PB: Walked a little out of a pirouette and then arched over a couple of handstands after. Ugh, then as he transitioned to the single rail, he loses his hand placement completely and has to hop off. Sadly just a little off on everything from the start. Double front dismount, small hop. 11.366
Joel Catarino POR HB: 12.666
8:52 am. Julien Saleur FRA PH: Really strong flair work throughout various stages of this routine, with his hips really high up. Opened up nicely into his travels up and down the horse, and no problems going up into the dismount. 13.500
Bidzina Sitchinava GEO SR: 12.766
Gytis Chasazyrovas LTU PB: 13.300
8:49 am. Sofus Heggemsnes NOR FX: Double tuck to start, followed by a front layout to front double full with a tiny hop. 2.5 to front full, tiny hop to the side. Double full, little arm wobble, but good landing in terms of his feet. Triple full with a baby step back. 13.333

Jacob Karlsen NOR FX: 13.300
8:46 am. Cameron-Lie Bernard FRA PH: Pretty good start from him, foot form was noticeable on pretty much every skill, but he worked very confidently through his routine and put up a hit. 13.000
Levan Skhiladze GEO SR: 13.500
Oskar Kirmes FIN VT: 12.700
Tarmo Kanerva FIN VT: 13.466
8:45 am. Moving to the second half of this rotation in a sec!
8:42 am. Ferhat Arican TUR PB: One-arm pirouette maybe a little shy in handstand, but the control in the handstand after is brilliant. Transition to the single rail was pretty off, legs apart and he’s short of handstand, then arched over and walked his hands out of the Healy. Makuts was better, another one-armed pirouette, and he stuck the double front half. 14.700
Kim Wanström SWE FX: 12.333
8:40 am. Takumi Onoshima BEL PH: Wasn’t typing during this but had a solid hit routine, handstand into the pirouette before the dismount went a little horizontal, but overall he worked through that well. 11.166
Ahmet Önder TUR PB: 14.666!
Karl Idesjö SWE FX: 12.600
Toma Modoianu-Zseder ROU HB: 13.000
8:38 am. Vinzenz Höck AUT SR: Maltese, down to a hang then pulled back up to planche, maybe a little awkward in the angle and didn’t hold it long enough? Inverted cross, double tuck to double pike through to maltese, legs dipping a little low again, swing through to planche, iron cross, handstand near the end was gorgeous, and he sticks the full-twisting double layout!
Luka van den Keybus BEL PH: 10.900
Razvan-Denis Marc ROU HB: 13.400
8:35 am. Adem Asil TUR PB: Had a nice solid start to his routine, transitions between the bars were especially nice, almost perfect in handstand out of a one-arm pirouette, maybe went a LITTLE over, straddle salto was strong, and a double front with a tiny hop forward. 14.133
David Rumbutis SWE FX: 13.233
Manuel Arnold AUT SR: 13.000
8:32 am. Gabriel Burtanete ROU HB: Opens with a big Yamawaki, blind change to front giant, Endo, stalder, clean and stuck full-twisting double layout. 12.833

Robert Burtanete ROU HB: 12.500
8:28 am. Moving to the second rotation now!
8:25 am. Benjamin Osberger FRA FX: Randi to start, then a double double, basically stuck, just clicks his heels together. 2.5 to front layout to front layout full, nice. Clean double full. Front double full to front tuck full I think? Beautiful triple full, great landing. 13.866
Jose Nogueira POR PB: 12.566
8:23 am. Sofus Heggemsnes NOR HB: Yamawaki, slight ankle separation, full-twisting Tkachev!! Layout Tkachev after that, hop full, a tiny bit crooked, Rybalko, some L grip work, Endo, stalder, double double layout with a baby hop back. 13.666!!
8:21 am. Ioane Jimsheleishvili GEO PH: Scissors to handstand then back down to scissor into his circles. Goes well between the handles and horse, very smooth there, but then on a circle element at the end of the horse he ends up dropping down to his bum. Good finish when he re-mounts. 9.666
Robert Kirmes FIN SR: 13.266
8:19 am. Leo Saladino FRA FX: Randi to start, some ankle form and a hop back. Front full to double front, good landing, small shuffle forward. Flairs up to handstand. Double double, chest a bit forward on that with a slide back. Double full stuck. 2.5 to barani I think for his next. Triple full at the end, made it look easy! 13.366

Pretty nice start for Romania on p-bars…41.366 total!
8:05 am. Luka van den Keybus BEL FX: Wasn’t typing in the first half of this, saw that he came up a bit short on the first run I believe? 1.5 to front tuck full was good, stuck the triple full at the end! 12.500

Loran de Munck NED SR: 13.133
Andrei Muntean ROU PB: 14.133

Jordi Hagenaar NED SR: 12.800
David Rumbutis SWE HB: 13.100

3. Ireland 234.393
4. Iceland 222.261
6:43 am. Ewan McAteer IRL FX: Piked double front, good. Double front with a big hop. Front double full to front layout, too short on that and he sits it. Double full. I think a whip half to front full after that? 2.5 with a step at the end. 12.400
6:41 am. Filip Ude CRO PH: I didn’t see the very beginning, had slight leg separation on the Russians between the pommels, otherwise is moving so well, very aggressive in his swing, a slight muscle up into the dismount, but no big problems, fabulous routine! 14.433! That should put him in first after this subdivision.
6:38 am. Dominick Cunningham IRL FX: Piked double front, leg form is kind of ambiguous but a great landing. Double double with a fantastic landing. 1.5 to front double full, stuck that as well! 2.5 to front layout down the side, OKAY! Russians then a press to handstand. Arabian double front half with a small hop. Huge triple full with a little step. WOW!!! 13.966!
6:36 am. Robert Seligman CRO PB: Scissors to circles, lovely, then super aggressive on his transitions up and down the horse. Travels in Russians and then continues them at the end into the dismount. Tiniest leg separation that I noticed in one Russian element but I think that was it for bigger breaks? 13.766
6:34 am. Eamon Montgomery IRL FX: Double double to start, pretty open there, hop back. Front full to double front, a little short in that landing and he sits it. Ughhh! Randi. Double full side pass stuck. 2.5 with a nice punch into a lovely front layout. Front double full to barani. Triple full with a little slide on the landing. 12.833
Ricards Plate LAT HB: 10.700
6:33 am. Mateo Zugec CRO PH: Great routine with gorgeous form, everything in this routine looked really smooth, including the pirouette into the dismount. 13.833!
6:30 am. Daniel Fox IRL FX: Double front with a big lunge forward. Front double full with a good landing. Front full to barani. Russians, somersaults over into a split before the press to handstand, nice. Double full. Uh oh, 2.5 doesn’t get around at all, literally does a double full and hops the last half around. 11.666, just a 3.8 D so yeah, that hurts a bit.
6:26 am. Rayan Radkov BUL PH: Smooth work at the start, including a couple of single pommel to horse transitions that were really nice, hips are pretty well open for the most part, love to see it, a little hesitant in the pirouette before the dismount, but that was excellent! 13.300
6:24 am. Valgard Reinhardsson ISL HB: Yamawaki, layout Tkachev, some bend in his hips, straddle Tkachev, clear hip, blind change to front giant to front full pirouette, full-twisting double layout with a hop back. 12.333
David Huddleston BUL PH: 13.633
6:21 am. Artem Dolgopyat ISR VT: Kaz 1.5 with a slight step back to steady himself on the landing. Oh no, it looks like he effed up his shoulder a bit on that? I guess that explains why no rings for him. Doesn’t do the second vault but for the first, he goes 14.433.
Martin Gudmundsson ISL HB: 12.600
Nikolaj Bozic SLO FX: 10.833
Sebastian Gawronski POL SR: 13.400
6:19 am. Yordan Aleksandrov BUL PH: Scissors into his circles, moves pretty well throughout the routine, nothing majorly off…just a little hesitation in the dismount, and a step on the landing. 11.900
Pavel Gulidov ISR VT: 14.200
Aron Jacobsen DEN PB: 11.500
6:17 am. Jonas Thorisson ISL HB: Yamawaki to Endo half, straddle Tkachev, full-twisting double layout with a good landing. 12.133
Teodor Trifonov BUL PH: 12.266
Matej Nemcovic SVK SR: 13.033
6:16 am. Uri Zeidel ISR VT: Honestly couldn’t tell if he did a handstand or tsuk, he came off the table kind of ambiguously and rushed into the flight, crashing it. Either a handspring rudi or a kaz full. 12.500
6:14 am. Final rotation coming up next!
6:11 am. Dominick Cunningham IRL HB: Yamawaki, layout Tkachev, straddle Tkachev, blind change to front giant, Tak full, bent his knees a little at the start but finished pretty well, Tak half, also bent at the start there, full-twisting double layout with a very nice landing. 13.166
6:09 am. Ewan McAteer IRL HB: Again didn’t have time to really start typing for this one, they keep jumping super fast into routines, but saw he had a Yamawaki and straddle Tkachev, and on the dismount (full-twisting double layout IIRC) he piked down significantly on the second flip. 12.200
Ricards Plate LAT PB: L sit with a beautiful press to handstand. One-arm pirouette out to handstand, and some slight leg separation on another pirouette after. Gorgeous 1.5 to the single rail, double back with a hop. He’s so beautiful to watch, I hope we get to see his high bar! He was my absolute favorite junior from 2020 Euros. His high bar routine lives on in my heart. Just perfection. 12.566
6:05 am. Daniel Fox IRL HB: Wasn’t typing during this but hit routine. 11.966
Aurel Benovic CRO FX: We jumped into this super fast, hit something to double front, double double, small bounce on the piked double front, NOOOOOO, just too far back on his heels on the arabian double front and sits it!!! I hate this. 2.5 to front layout, ends up almost tucking it out of a low landing on the former. Triple full with a bounce back OOB. 12.133
6:00 am. Yordan Aleksandrov BUL FX: Double double, slight hop back. Front double full with a hop. Full-in with a hop. Had a little hesitation in his press to handstand in the strength elements. Whip half to front full, kinda slips on the landing but doesn’t fall. Double full and then a 2.5 to end with a big step forward. He looks pretty much in pain. 11.633
5:57 am. Valgard Reinhardsson ISL PB: Front pike, Healy, both good. Full pirouette with a slip of his hand, adjusts. Double pike a bit low with a hop. 12.733
Dimitar Dimitrov BUL FX: 11.266
5:56 am. Aron Jacobsen DEN VT: Kaz full, ugh, lands almost on his knees and looks like his hands went down. 12.366
5:55 am. Scores aren’t working right now, FYI. I’ll update when they do!
5:54 am. David Huddleston BUL FX: Piked double front, noooo, his feet slip and he sits it. Front double full to double front with a small hop. Double double, a little deep with a step. Double full with a hop. 2.5, doesn’t get a great punch, does a front tuck out of it. Triple full with legs going a bit wild in the air, big step to the side. That was a bit rough. 11.666
Ron Pyatov ISR SR: 12.800
Pavel Gulidov ISR SR: 13.566
Atli Valgeirsson ISL PB: 9.000
Martin Gudmundsson ISL PB: 7.666
5:51 am. Matej Nemcovic SVK PH: Had slight leg separation while traveling, and then came off. Gets the rest, and he’s mostly tidy, but has to fight through the dismount with some big leg separation there. 11.500
Teodor Trifonov BUL FX: 13.133
Sebastian Gawronski POL PH: 10.933
Jonas Thorisson ISL PB: 12.533
5:48 am. Uri Zeidel ISR SR: Pike to iron cross, bent arms there. Inverted pike to L hold, swings through to his salto combination up to L hold, presses to handstand, next handstand is a little arched, stuck the full-in dismount, good for him! 13.000
5:45 am. Fifth subdivision coming up shortly!
5:43 am. Dominick Cunningham IRL PB: Healy, some nice handstands at the very start but then piked down in one as well, giant full and 1.5 both went well. Double pike with a baby hop.
5:41 am. Daniel Fox IRL PB: Muscled up a handstand after the Healy, and short on a couple of other handstands as well. L sit pressed to handstand was nice, though! Double pike with a big hop back. 12.866
Ricards Plate LAT VT: Really lovely kaz! 13.200
5:39 am. Ewan McAteer IRL PB: We jumped into this a little late so I didn’t start typing but it was a very nice start on this apparatus for Ireland! Good double pike dismount. 12.166
5:37 am. Tin Srbic CRO HB: Kolman with his legs apart, hop full, blind change to front giants, Tak half, stalder Tkachev, layout Tkachev to straddle Tkachev, Tak full was SUPER late, full-twisting double layout with a small hop. 13.466
5:33 am. Yordan Aleksandrov BUL HB: L grip front giants into a Tak half at the start, layout Tkachev, straddle Tkachev, inbar to blind change for more L grip work, Tak, Endo, hop full, and a lovely full-twisting double landout with a fantastic landing. 13.633
Pavel Gulidov ISR PH: 12.633
5:31 am. Artem Dolgopyat ISR PH: Aggressive work on the single pommel in his circles there but then he transitions into single pommel Russians and he loses his swing, fall. Back on to transition back into single handle circles, travels in Russians to Russians at the end, has some big leg separations and looks like he hits the horse at the end, struggle into the dismount, but oof, this was a fight. 11.933
5:29 am. David Huddleston BUL HB: Lovely Yamawaki to Endo, one-arm front full, bends his elbows on that, huge straddle Tkachev, stalder, and a double double layout with a big lunge back. Some medium-sized deductions on a couple of elements in that routine, but overall he’s so technically great. 12.833
Sebastian Gawronski POL FX: 13.266
Alexander Myakinin ISR PH: 13.233
5:28 am. Atli Valgeirsson ISL VT: 12.833

Martin Gudmundsson ISL VT: 12.800

Matej Nemcovic SVK FX: 11.466
Uri Zeidel ISR PH: 13.233
Aron Jacobsen DEN SR: 12.033
Rayan Radkov BUL HB: 12.266
5:22 am. Moving to the fourth rotation!
5:19 am. Dominick Cunningham IRL VT: Shewfelt, aka Yurchenko 2.5, mostly lovely, slight knee bend just before landing and he has to take a step back but very nice overall. 14.466
Second vault was a kaz full with a baby hop back, also very nice in the air. 14.166 average.
5:16 am. Ewan McAteer IRL VT: Kaz 1.5 looked mostly great in the air, small bounce forward on the landing but that was gorgeous. 14.566!
Does a handspring double front for his second vault, pushes a bit too hard on that landing and ends up going forward with his hands down. 13.866 average
5:15 am. Ricards Plate LAT SR: Inverted hang up to L hold, double tuck to double pike to straddle hold, presses to handstand, a little arched, he’s having trouble finding the handstand positions in general, full-in dismount with an excellent landing. 12.466
Daniel Fox IRL VT: Kaz with a big hop back but nice in the air! 13.200
5:13 am. Yordan Aleksandrov BUL PB: I wasn’t watching closely but glanced over just as he seemed to maybe fall out of a handstand and have to come off? Hit the rest nicely, including a pirouette that went perfectly to handstand, and just a small hop back on the double front. 12.200
5:09 am. Artem Dolgopyat ISR FX: Double double layout, maybe a little low in his chest, but good landing in terms of his feet. Hit the front double full to front layout, 2.5 to double front, runs fully off the mat. 1.5 to rudi for his side pass. Tucked double double, great landing. Arabian double front half stuck. 14.266
Jon Gunnarsson ISL SR: 12.233
5:07 am. David Huddleston BUL PB: Pike through to handstand, good transition between the bars on the Makuts, so smooth into the straddle salto and Tippelt, double front with a little step back. Really strong! 14.333
Pavel Gulidov ISR FX: 12.466
Valgard Reinhardsson ISL SR: 12.633
Matej Nemcovic SVK HB: 10.633
5:03 am. Uri Zeidel ISR FX: Think he started with a front full to double front? Arabian double front with a hop. 2.5 to front layout. Layout down the side. 1.5 to front full, good landing there. Triple full with a step forward. 13.766
Rayan Radkov BUL PB: 11.733
Aron Jacobsen DEN PH: 9.166
Martin Gudmundsson ISL SR: 12.033
Teodor Trifonov BUL PB: 12.733
5:01 am. Sebastian Gawronski POL HB: Tak half, legs came apart, but he saved it. Layout Tkachev, slight pike, straddle Tkachev is stronger, blind change, Endo full finishes almost under the bar, hop full, double double layout lands pretty deep with a step forward. Looks like his hand down as well. 11.166
Radomir Sliz CZE PH: Mostly strong routine from what I could see, had some slight form breaks at the start but got into a very nice rhythm, Russians into the dismount. 12.900
Jonas Thorisson ISL SR: 11.200
4:59 am. Moving to the third rotation!
4:58 am. Ricards Plate LAT PH: Wasn’t paying close attention to this but did notice he had very nice toe point at the start! Came off halfway through, though. Looked really nice on the Russsians at the end of the horse right into his dismount. 11.366
4:55 am. Daniel Fox IRL SR: Maltese, down to invert pike back out to maltese, pike and tuck saltos to L hold, swings through to iron cross, inverted hang up to handstand, hard to tell how it looks from the angle we have, next handstand is pretty arched over, double double with a hop forward. That was mostly great! 13.733
4:52 am. Matvei Petrov ALB PH: Scissors through to his swing here, goes for a Sohn but looks off in his technique right at the start and can’t save it. Flairs to handstand then back down for flairs across the apparatus, but his hand slips and he whacks his legs on the horse and comes off again. Back on to complete the travels, muscles into the handstand before the dismount. 11.900
4:50 am. Dominick Cunningham IRL SR: Maltese, front pike through to maltese, double pike to double tuck to L hold, preses to handstand, a little short but he corrects once he’s up, next handstand is a little tighter, muscles the third a bit, full-twisting double layout with a big step back. Good work! 12.966
Dmitrijs Mickevics LAT PH: 13.066
4:48 am. Ewan McAteer IRL SR: L hold up to handstand, saltos through to handstand doesn’t quite make it and he muscles out of it, next handstand is FULLY arched over, and he can’t pull up out of that position. Fights through it into the dismount, tucked full-in, good landing. 11.933
Albania also in this subdivision, I just realized! Matvei Petrov of course.
4:46 am. Alexander Myakinin ISR HB: Cassina, Kolman to Gaylord II, okay sir! Tak half arches over, though!!! And he has to regroup. Straddle Tkachev. Hop full. Stalder. And a full-twisting double layout dismount with a hop to the side. 13.400
Atli Valgeirsson ISL PH: 11.500
4:42 am. Artem Dolgopyat ISR HB: Layout Tkachev barely clears the bar, had to flex them to get it over, , Tkachev, stalder to inbar half to his front giants, tak, Endo, double double layout with a hop. 12.833
Dimitar Dimitrov BUL VT: 13.666
Sebastian Gawronski POL PB: 13.100
4:40 am. Rani Dalsgard DEN FX: Double front down the length of the floor, OOB. 2.5 to front layout was solid. Randi with a hop back. Double full landed well down the side. Triple full to finish, chest forward. 12.700
David Huddleston BUL VT: 14.266
Ron Pyatov ISR HB: 11.000
4:38 am. Jonas Thorisson ISL PH: Didn’t watch this closely but hit routine! 10.700
Martin Gudmundsson ISL PH: 10.766
Valgard Reinhardsson ISL PH: 11.933
Luka Bojanc SLO SR: 12.900
Teodor Trifonov BUL VT: 13.266
Yordan Aleksandrov BUL VT: 13.833
Matej Nemcovic SVK PB: 12.000
4:35 am. Uri Zeidel ISR HB: Tkachev, German giants, a little form break into the stalder, blind change to front giant to Endo, ugh, goes basically horizontal on the full-twisting double layout and lands on his knees. 12.033
Aron Jacobsen DEN PH: 12.666
4:32 am. Moving to the second rotation!
4:30 am. Dominick Cunningham IRL PH: Scissors through to circles on both handles, moves pretty well through the first half, just hip form that will likely get docked on every skill, Russians at the end, tiniest form break going into the handstand, but this was pretty good for him! 11.733
4:27 am. Rhys McClenaghan IRL PH: Scissors to handstand before his circles, Russians on the single handle, then SMOOTHLY transitions to the other handle for his circles, hips aren’t AS clean as we usually see from him but just in that one element, the rest of the time he’s mostly very nicely extended. Russians between the handles, legs come apart when he moves to Russians at the end of the horse, struggles a little in the handstand pirouette into the dismount and he comes off a bit short, but despite the little mistakes this was very nice! 14.200
4:24 am. Ewan McAteer IRL PH: Scissors through to his opening circle elements, hips are pretty closed throughout his routine, not the most difficult set but I think they’re really going to try and push for a team berth to worlds here so they need every score they can get, a bit of a muscle into the handstand for the dismount. 11.733
4:23 am. I think Ireland is the only team left to compete right now, on pommels. So it’ll probably be slow-going as we wait for scores between routines.
4:20 am. Ricards Plate LAT FX: Double front is good. Front double full also strong, little step. Layout down the side. Front full to barani. Double full. 2.5 with a skid and a step in his final run. 12.700
Daniel Fox IRL PH: 12.800
4:16 am. Valgard Reinhardsson ISL FX: Piked double front with a hop forward, toes OOB. Front full to double front, knee form could be tighter in the twist. Double full down the side. 2.5 to front layout, goes a little low and long there but no problems landing it. Triple full with a small hop. 13.433
Pavel Gulidov ISR PB: 13.166
4:15 am. Jonas Thorisson ISL FX: 12.633
4:13 am. David Huddleston BUL SR: Maltese through to iron cross, piked to tucked saltos to iron cross, double double dismount with a little step. 13.133
Atli Valgeirsson ISL FX: 12.333
Pommels hasn’t even started yet which is fun!
4:12 pm. Artem Dolgopyat ISR PB: Good routine for him! Looked really tight and solid throughout. Double front half was strong. 13.833
4:09 am. Yordan Aleksandrov BUL SR: V hold, double saltos through to straddle hold, clean first handstand but he’s a little arched and shaky on the next. Full-in half-out double tuck with a step. 13.166
Ron Pyatov ISR PB: 10.966
4:05 am. Matej Nemcovic SVK VT: Kaz with a hop back. 12.966
Uri Zeidel ISR PB: 12.733
Dimitar Dimitrov BUL SR: 12.233
4:01 am. Martin Gudmundsson ISL FX: Double front with a strong landing, small hop back. Front layout full to front double full also not bad, small step there as well. 1.5 to barani is clean. Back layout down the side. Finishes with a solid 2.5. This was very nice! 13.233
Teodor Trifonov BUL SR: 11.500
Sebastian Gawronski POL VT: Ugh, looked like a miss for him. Saw it in the replay, tsuk double pike, which looked great in the air but landed super low and he had to take big steps back out of it and put his hands down. 13.266
Did a handspring double front for his second vault, deep landing again there.
Aron Jacobsen DEN HB: 11.166
