Jesolo Live Blog

The competition is streaming on FLO, but I’ve got your backs with the live blog. We’ll work through these hard times as a family.

Warmups have concluded. We’re having special Ferrari time before the competition begins, where she is being awarded a melted frisbee?

Touch now. Remember the US gymnasts are competing as individuals, so they are spread across three different rotation groups here. Smith/Malabuyo are together, Kenlin/Dunne are together, and Shchennikova/McCallum are together.

ROTATION 1 – Part 1

Kenlin – VT – USA – inbar to stalder full to Ricna, hit, just slight late moments – inbar full, very late to Pak, brushes legs on mat on Pak – hits Shap 1/2 – toe 1/2 to front 1/2 back out dismount. A hit but will be disappointed in the Pak, totally lost form and hit the mat with her legs. Continue reading Jesolo Live Blog

And so it begins. 36 become 12. GOODBYE ALMOST ALL OF YOU.

The primary focus of the live blog will be the borderline teams, the actual fights for regionals qualification, with an emphasis on bars and beam because that’s usually the place where things go wrong and I’m a glutton for disaster. At least that’s the plan. Hopefully the broadcasts understand our needs. Continue reading Regionals Live Blog

I’ll start today with the EAGL Championship, but the primary focus will be on the SEC, Pac-12, Big Ten, and a little bit of Big 12. You know how it goes.

At EAGLs, the performances of New Hampshire and North Carolina will be crucial in deciding the final regionals qualifiers.

Something that bothers no one else but me: How half of New Hampshire’s team is always listed in all caps and the other half not.

Countdown clocks that count down to nothing in particular are definitely my aesthetic. Thanks, EAGLs! Continue reading Conference Championships Live Blog – March 24, 2018

Here to live blog Oklahoma and TWU because it wasn’t important enough to take the time in the middle of the day to watch, but you still kind of want to know what happened. I get you.

It’s also worth keeping an eye on New Hampshire’s score since UNH is one of the six remaining bubble teams fighting for the final three spots for regionals, along with Central Michigan, Iowa, Arizona, Utah State, and North Carolina. It will be possible for New Hampshire to get off that bubble and clinch a spot with a big score today. Continue reading Sunday Live Blog – March 18, 2018

Before we get to today’s major action—the Big Five meets and Arizona’s regional-urgent visit to LSU—there’s a meet with quite significant postseason implications in Pitt v. UNC. These two are currently 38th and 39th in the in-progress RQS standings, and with all the other bubble teams suddenly getting big 196s this week (OH LOOK HOW THAT WORKED OUT NO PROBLEMS HERE), Pitt and UNC must keep pace to have a chance at getting back into the hunt.

The main events won’t begin until a little later today, but there are some stakes built into the early action, particularly for 35th-ranked Kent State, which is currently on the regionals bubble.

The RQS standards have been updated after Thursday’s action, but to distill things, Kent State is looking for a 195.575 today at minimum. That score would ensure Kent State is in the top 36 on Monday heading into conference championships, the final chance to get a score before regionals are decided.
