9:45 am. Final Standings

1. Italy 165.163
2. Great Britain 161.164
3. Germany 158.430
4. Netherlands 156.464
5. Belgium 155.530
6. France 155.162
7. Hungary 154.095
8. Spain 151.695

Alice Kinsella’s floor was inquiried and they ended up giving her the full 5.5 D back, so it must have been the triple. Very weird that they tried to take it when it wasn’t slightly underrotated.

9:43 am. Asia D’Amato ITA FX: Full-twisting double layout with a slight hop back. Arabian double front, great landing there. Switch leap to switch full. Double pike was landed well. Double tuck with a small hop. Gold, here you come again! 13.566

9:39 am. Jessica Gadirova GBR FX: Double double, really open and lands wildly with a big bounce OOB. Surprisingly held that up and didn’t fall, though. Stuck the double layout! Hit the rest very well. 13.233

Alice Kinsella just a 12.766 on floor with a 4.9 D, by the way. Apparently the BBC is saying they likely didn’t credit the triple full, which of course would mean if they downgraded it to a 2.5, her subsequent 2.5 wouldn’t get credit. BUT I thought her triple was fully around? She bounced back and her heel went OOB. Maybe it was a hair short in rotation but not an entire half twist short?

9:36 am. Alice D’Amato ITA FX: Hit her first two passes strongly, I already forgot what they were, my brain is the worst. I think a double layout was the first? Front double full for her third pass has a big step forward OOB. 13.333

9:34 am. Long wait for Alice Kinsella’s score on floor.

Fien Enghels BEL UB: 12.633

Aline Friess FRA VT: Hit the handspring rudi! 14.233

Germany finishes with a 158.430, while France is down at a 155.162. That should seal the podium for the Germans!

9:32 am. Sanna Veerman NED UB: 13.400

Greta Mayer HUN BB: 12.766

9:31 am. Sarah Voss GER VT: WOW, she upgraded back to her Yurchenko double, and not only hit it, but STUCK IT!!! SARAH VOSS!!! Okay she had a tiny bounce in place, but that was heroic, epic, brilliant, everything. 14.333!!!

9:28 am. Alice Kinsella GBR FX: 1.5 through to triple full, slight hop back and her heel goes OOB. 2.5 to front full with a step forward. Tour jeté half through to switch full. Double pike. What a queen! 12.766 with just a 4.9 D, not sure what happened there. Maybe something with dance?

Carolann Heduit FRA VT: Looks like she did the Yurchenko double, 13.800

Maellyse Brassart BEL UB: 13.133

Laura Casabuena ESP BB: 11.933

9:26 am. Elisabeth Seitz GER VT: Yurchenko full, chest a little forward on the landing with a hop. 13.333

Martina Maggio ITA FX: 13.733!

9:24 am. Mirtill Makovits HUN BB: Full turn, front aerial, side aerial to back handspring. Switch leap to split jump. Side somi. Split leap. 1.5 dismount. She used to be the bars girl sometimes but now she is the everything girl and I love this for her?! 12.266

Naomi Visser NED UB: 14.066

Morgane Osyssek FRA VT: Oh no, just a 12.033…

9:23 am. Kim Bui GER VT: Her final team final moment of her LIFE. Tears. Yurchenko full, super clean, small hop back. 13.266

Lorena Medina ESP BB: 12.466

9:21 am. Jennifer Gadirova GBR FX: Double layout with a big bounce back. Good landing on the full-in. She has such long pauses built in for her post-tumbling moments. Switch ring to tour jeté half. Front layout through to double tuck, deep landing with a little stumble back. 13.133

9:15 am. Rotation 3 Standings

1. Italy 124.531
2. Great Britain 121.432
3. Germany 117.498
4. Hungary 117.030
5. Netherlands 115.798
6. Belgium 115.698
7. France 115.096
8. Spain 114.396

9:13 am. Kim Bui GER FX: Stuck the double layout! Strong double tuck as well, just a small hop back. 2.5 with some leg form, into a good front pike. Switch leap to switch full. Big double pike to finish. Fantastic! 13.033

Alba Petisco ESP UB: 13.133

9:11 am. Alice Kinsella GBR BB: Front aerial, side aerial layout stepout is also very nice, I stopped typing but she hit everything very well, including a super solid double pike! 13.733

9:09 am. Morgane Osyssek FRA FX: Double double, little scoot back on the landing. Front layout stepout through to double tuck, wild on that landing. 13.166

Asia D’Amato ITA BB: Stream didn’t show this, but incredible score! 13.800

9:07 am. Zsofia Kovacs HUN UB: Inbar full to Chow half, inbar half went a little crooked and her piked Jaeger was super off as well, can’t hold on. Ughhhh. Back on for a big Downie to Pak, van Leeuwen, short handstand before the full-in, which she stuck. Double pike. Hop L turn through to switch half. 13.633, WOW, with a fall!!!

Sarah Voss GER FX: They didn’t show this but during Jennifer Gadirova’s beam I heard a massive scream from the crowd during Voss’ floor so I assumed she fell. Looks like it based on the score. 11.266

9:04 am. Jennifer Gadirova GBR BB: Switch leap mount to switch half, maybe a slight pause between them. Back tuck. Front aerial, lands low and comes off. Split jump, doesn’t connect to the straddle so does a straddle to wolf jump. Cross jump was hit. Big check on the bhs loso. Side aerial. Double pike with a hop back. 12.500

Vera van Pol NED VT: Looked like a good Yurchenko 1.5, seeing thee replay now, yes, very nice, tiny hop back! 13.600

Laura Casabuena ESP UB: 12.700

9:01 am. Martina Maggio ITA BB: Hit her leap series, bhs loso with a check, and full turn with a check. Switch ring, foot not really there and another slight check. Side aerial, hip adjusts slightly. Front aerial with a check. A little more nervous maybe than we usually see her on this apparatus. Side somi with her chest forward and a wobble. Double pike with a tiny hop. Good hit routine despite the little things here and there. 13.066

Lisa Vaelen BEL VT: Got the handspring rudi, a little piked and some leg form in the air but the landing was super solid! 14.200

Zoja Szekely HUN UB: 12.666

Carolann Heduit FRA FX: 12.966

8:57 am. Pauline Schäfer GER FX: Double front, slightly over rotated with a step forward. Front double full is the tiniest bit short, step to the side to steady it. Hit a leap after that, either a tour jeté half or switch full. Front full had a hop forward. I think a ring leap to switch ring for her leap pass. Does she not do back tumbling or did I mistake her front full for a back 1.5? 12.433

Maellyse Brassart BEL VT: 12.933

Sanna Veerman NED VT: Think she did a Yurchenko 1.5. 13.433

Paula Raya ESP UB: 12.466

8:55 am. Jutta Verkest BEL VT: Yurchenko full, doesn’t get a great block and has a big hop back. Decent in the air, though. 13.000

Naomi Visser NED VT: Very clean Yurchenko full! Great landing. 13.300

Mirtill Makovits HUN UB: 12.966

Marine Boyer FRA FX: 12.700

8:54 am. Giorgia Villa ITA BB: Layout stepout mount, roundoff back tuck with a deep landing. Triple wolf turn was clean. Switch leap to split jump. Side aerial, not bad. Double full with a hop back. Excellent start for them. 13.300

2. Great Britain 81.499
3. Germany 80.766
4. Hungary 77.765
5. France 76.264
6. Spain 76.097
7. Belgium 75.565
8. Netherlands 75.465

8:48 am. Morgane Osyssek FRA BB: I caught it right as she was falling, which would mean two routines with falls for France in this rotation. Side aerial was strong. Off again, I think on a side somi? I keep looking down for one second and she’s off. Double pike was stuck, though. 11.766

Lisa Vaelen BEL FX: 13.100

8:46 am. Georgia-Mae Fenton GBR UB: Fenton to Ezhova, arches over slightly before the Maloney to Pak, bent her hips before catching, van Leeuwen was clean, clear hip before the blind full, a little sway in her back, but pulls it around, lands the full-in quite deep with a hop. 13.700

8:43 am. Pauline Schäfer GER BB: Switch leap mount to switch leap, split leap wasn’t connected. Solid bhs loso. Switch ring, cat leap, dances back out of it, double spin with a slight check but nothing extreme. Gets the Schäfer with a little bounce in place. Front aerial to split jump to stag ring jump. Side aerial, and gainer layout with a slight hop. 13.733

Vera van Pol NED FX: 12.800

8:40 am. Asia D’Amato UB: Nabieva to Pak, leg separation on the latter, toe full was pretty solid, Maloney with legs apart, to Tkachev, some bend in her elbows there, oh no, misses the blind handstand and has to do it again, no big issue, gets the front full to double front. 14.000

Marine Boyer FRA BB: 12.866

Maellyse Brassart BEL FX: 12.566

8:39 am. Alice Kinsella GBR UB: Didn’t see this but Alice is in her bars era and finally got her 14.000! Her first of this year.

8:36 am. Sarah Voss GER BB: Layout stepout mount and then hit the side aerial to layout stepout series very well. Tour jeté half. Full turn. Switch leap to switch half, lands a little deep. Sissone to split jump. Front aerial, slight check there. 2.5 with a step to the side. 13.500

Zsofia Kovacs HUN VT: Yurchenko double, lovely in the air, huge, just a hop back. 14.266!

Tisha Volleman NED FX: 13.166

8:35 am. Giorgia Villa ITA UB: Tkachev to Pak to Maloney to Bhardwaj, nice. Short handstand before the van Leeuwen, and again short before the blind change to front full, full-in with a hop to the side. Could have been a little tighter in her handstands but overall a very nice set. 14.166

Alba Petisco ESP VT: Yurchenko full, 13.166

Carolann Heduit FRA BB: NOOOOO, just an 11.300

8:32 am. Ondine Achampong GBR UB: Inbar to inbar half, legs come apart significantly, to straddle Jaeger, Downie to Pak, leg separation there as well, and she has to pause on the low bar. She waits several seconds before continuing to the toe full, ankle separation, Chow with legs apart in the air, and an open double tuck with a small hop. 12.433

Emma Malewski GER BB: 12.700

Lorena Medina ESP VT: Yurchenko full, pikes it down into the landing. 12.866

Jutta Verkest BEL FX: 12.300

Csenge Bacskay HUN VT: Looks like a GREAT Yurchenko 1.5! Just saw the replay, some soft hips and knees but she stuck it! 13.800!

8:29 am. Naomi Visser NED FX: Whip to triple to punch front tuck, comes up a little short into the tuck and cowboys it around. Double L to double spin for her first turn sequence, then a Memmel to illusion. Switch half is lovely. Double full I think was her second pass. Switch ring to tour jeté half. Double tuck, a little low with a slight hop back. 13.033

Laura Casabuena ESP VT: Yay, she hit the Yurchenko full, and it looked like a good one! 13.000

Greta Mayer HUN VT: 13.133

8:26 am. Team Standings

1. Italy 41.566
2. Great Britain 41.366
3. Germany 40.833
4. France 40.332
5. Belgium 37.599
6. Spain 37.065
7. Hungary 36.566
8. Netherlands 36.466

8:22 am. Tisha Volleman NED BB: Back handspring mount, front walkover, think it was supposed to be more of a handspring, yeah she was supposed to do that to the front toss but didn’t connect. Did a front toss kind of connected to Korbut. That’s a yikes for her D. Full L turn. Side somi. Switch leap, low back leg and a bobble. Sissone to cat leap, sissone also wasn’t quite there. Full turn, iffy gainer full, leg form was ambiguous and she came up a bit short with a step forward.

8:21 am. Alba Petisco ESP FX: Hit the first pass (a full-in IIRC) and then an arabian double front, very nice on both with the landings. Double tuck with a deep landing and a slight hop forward.

Jutta Verkest NED BB: 12.933

8:19 am. Elisabeth Seitz GER UB: Stream came back in the middle of her routine, hit the Pak and van Leeuwen, toe full was very careful, and a tiny bounce on the full-in. 14.300

Naomi Visser NED BB: 12.700

Zsofia Kovacs HUN FX: Eek looks like a miss on something here… 12.300

8:18 am. Well the stream just disappeared, so…hopefully they bring it back hehe.

8:17 am. The Italians take an early lead on vault with a 41.566 to Great Britain’s 41.366!

8:15 am. Lorette Charpy FRA UB: Shaposh, nice handstand before the toe half to piked Jaeger, a bit close, Shang, nice! Pak is clean. Toe-on, doesn’t connect to the van Leeuwen, blind full, and a double layout, a bit deep with a hop forward. 13.266

Laura Casabuena ESP FX: 12.666

8:13 am. Kim Bui GER UB: Hop change to straddle Jaeger to Pak, very nice there. Maloney to Bhardwaj, a little crooked but leg form looked better than the other day. Van Leeuwen, toe full was quite late and the swing out of it was a bit off, that’ll be a big deduction, hit the full-in dismount with no problems. 13.433

Mirtill Makovits HUN FX: 11.833

8:11 am. Lisa Vaelen BEL BB: Punch front mount, landed it well. Switch to switch side, lovely form on that. Bhs back tuck, legs could be tighter, small step back. Check on the double spin and on the side somi, both easily able to control though. Oh no, misses a foot on the punch fron tuck and slips off. Clean double full dismount. 11.833

Alice D’Amato ITA VT: Yurchenko double, oooh, nice score! Just showed a replay and it was super powerful with a hop back. 14.100!

Jessica Gadirova GBR VT: Yurchenko double, just got a replay and it was super solid…chest just a little forward on the landing, slight hop back. 14.000!

Emma Fernandez ESP FX: 11.466

8:09 am. Carolann Heduit FRA UB: Maloney or Chow (I didn’t see the entry) to Ricna, big Ray to Pak, some leg separation there, toe full was pretty solid, doesn’t connect to the van Leeuwen, blind change to double front, great chest position on that landing, tiny hop forward. 13.800

Ondine Achampong GBR VT: Yurchenko double, great landing! Just slight ankle form in the air but overall one of her better attempts I think! 13.900

Vera van Pol NED BB: 12.100

8:08 am. Asia D’Amato ITA VT: Haven’t shown it yet but her Yurchenko double got a 13.833.

They are just straight up not showing vault, just replays after the fact.

8:07 am. Alice Kinsella GBR VT: Yurchenko double, a bit unfocused coming off the table, really chucks it around and takes some huge steps back out of it. 13.466

Greta Mayer HUN FX: 12.433

8:06 am. Emma Malewski GER UB: Hop change to piked Jaeger, clean Pak, toe full to Maloney, little rushed in part of that but no major errors, gets the double front with a huge hop forward. 13.100

8:03 am. Noémie Louon BEL BB: Lovely layout stepout mount. Solid on the bhs loso. Full L turn, slightest over rotation but steady and clean. Front aerial. She’s moving so deliberately and it looks so nice. Good double wolf turn. Solid side aerial. Hit her jump series and the 1.5 dismount, slight step. That was brilliant!!! 12.833 (4.8, 8.033)

Martina Maggio ITA VT: Looks like she hit the Yurchenko 1.5! Just saw a replay, some soft knees in the air and a small step back, but solid. 13.633

Aline Friess FRA UB: 13.266

8:01 am. Touch warm-up is underway and should be wrapping up any moment now!

7:58 am. Athletes are marching out for the women’s team final now, where Italy and Great Britain will face off for gold, with France and Germany also squarely in that mix!
