2012 Russian Cup Team Finals & Prelims

Hmm, I'm not sure where to begin? I guess results first (translated): CLICK HERE

Top 3 AA Prelims (VT + UB + BB + FX)

1) Aliya Mustafina 14.667 + 15.834 + 14.667 + 14.167 = 59.335
2) Viktoria Komova 14.800 + 16.134 + 14.000 + 14.300 = 59.234
3) Ksenia Afanasyeva 13.267 + 13.634 + 14.467 + 14.067 = 55.435

-My sources are coming from Nora at The Allaround Forum. She was in Penza, Russia.

Viktoria Komova did an upgraded bar routine and scored 16.134! She added the piked tkatchev and dbl dbl dismount. This would mean that her D-score would be at 7.0 and her execution was 9.134.  Unfortunately she fell off beam. She would have scored a 15.000 and would have been leading AA with a total of 60.234. 

Maria Paseka finally did an Amanar for a score of 15.800. Many fans are celebrating that she will be on the team but I beg to differ. She will now have to be able to hit it consistently throughout the competition. One time does not mean anything.

Ksenia Afanasyeva had new floor music and apparently it was nice. She mounted a dbl tuck instead of the DLO. She's protecting herself.

Anastasia Grishina was nowhere in sight. She apparently has a leg something? Was suppose to do only bars but there is no results to be found. I hope the coaches are just protecting her and decided she didn't need this competition. I also hope she's alright.

Aliya Mustafina hit all events. Seems like she is still doing her mediocre beam routine, Front aerial + flic flac, ugh. Her bars were monstrous though 15.834 She didn't do the Mustafina dismount though.

Anna Dementyeva got the highest beam score, but did not do well enough on FX & VT. I like Dementyeva and she still has a chance to be on the Russian team.
