7:28 pm. Joscelyn Roberson BB: 13.250
Levi Jung-Ruivivar FX: 12.750
7:27 pm. Waiting for the last couple of routines while we’re in a commercial break.
7:24 pm. Elle Mueller FX: 12.950
7:22 pm. Kayla DiCello FX: Full-twisting double layout, little slide back. 1.5 to front full. Clean double tuck to finish. 13.850
7:21 pm. Skye Blakely BB: Triple wolf turn, ugh, a little off in her rotation on the standing full. That’s all they showed? Rude. 13.450
7:19 pm. Leanne Wong UB: Stalder half, slightest adjustment in her ankles before the swing into the straddle Jaeger, toe full arches slightly but stays in perfect vertical, to Bhardwaj, yes! Looked like her best so far based on all of the training I’ve seen. Maloney to Pak, van Leeuwen, nearly stuck double layout.
Ciena Alipio BB: 13.600
Katelyn Rosen FX: 13.550
7:16 pm. Shilese Jones VT: Yurchenko double, super clean, looked like it was slightly tighter and cleaner than Jordan’s if we want to compare two of the same vault. Bigger, too. 14.550!
Marissa Neal UB: 12.350
Katelyn Jong UB: 12.200
Addison Fatta UB: 13.550
7:15 pm. Jade Carey VT: Haven’t gotten to see this yet but looks like she nailed the Cheng! Just went back to watch and it was great. 14.800!
7:11 pm. Konnor McClain BB: Had a really long wait before she could go. Looked like Anna Liukin was doing a really good job keeping her calm and smiling. Standing full is awesome and she nails the bhs bhs layout series. Full turn. Switch to switch half, nice toe point. Front aerial a little slow to the split to straddle jump but the extension is excellent. Side aerial. Switch ring with a slight check. Double pike clean with a great landing. CLASSIC KONNOR. 14.800 (6.4, 8.400)!!!
Charlotte Booth VT: 13.700
Amelia Disidore UB: 11.550
Skye Blakely BB: 13.450
Lexi Zeiss FX: 13.100
7:10 pm. Jordan Chiles VT: Yurchenko double, like it’s easy. Super impressive, legs are GLUED throughout, really just has slightly soft knees just before landing but is otherwise excellent. 14.350
7:09 pm. Nola Matthews VT: Yurchenko full with a really solid landing. 13.100
Looks like Olivia Greaves isn’t vaulting.
7:08 pm. Still in the touch from the looks of it! Hopefully should wrap up shortly.
7:05 pm. I’ll also be sharing scores from routines we don’t see. Remember when Ashton Locklear did bars in 2014 and no one saw the routine and everyone was screaming because of her score?!
7:03 pm. I’m watching the stream on Peacock because I essentially refused to go to Florida. I’ll only see what airs on TV, but videos should go up regularly on FlipNow so I’ll try to grab key routines should we miss any. I’m sure we will.
7:00 pm. Athletes are getting ready for the touch and I’m getting ready to scream with excitement because it’s nationals. I’m not really THAT excited, tbh, I’m too tired for that, but I’m pretty excited.
6:54 pm. Here are the start lists for each apparatus today!
VT– Greaves, Matthews, Chiles, Booth, Carey, Jones
UB– Disidore, Neal, Jong, Fatta, Wong
