First congratulations to Dalton and Ohashi for winning. Results here I missed the first half of the competition for MAG: FX, PH, SR and WAG: VT. I watched the German coverage which had Philipp Boy commentary. Of course I didn't understand any of the commentary but he seemed to of enjoyed Ohashi's beam and I think he even asked his co host if Ohashi's Memmel spin was elegant, and it was.
I kind of felt sorry for Danell Leyva :( Apparently he was sick so
hopefully that was the reason why he was faltering. I'm happy that
Victoria Moors came in 3rd AA. I like her floor routine but what is up with her spin? I might sound like an ass for saying this but I hate the spin. Someone please
enlighten me on it. I don't get it. One of my friend said that it
looked like she was covering up a hurt knee :D I just don't like how she
falls to the ground. I know that she does it on purpose but why?
I thought the judges were harsh on Asuka Teramoto's downgraded 3/1
twists but then it was fair game because Ohashi was also downgraded on
her leap elements.
I'm still not sure if I like Ohashi's floor routine:
Ohashi's beam is growing on me. Ohashi never connected what she intended to but the
fact that her difficulty score was still 6.8 is astounding, it's just
crazy that it can be up in the 7.3 range when she hits everything.
Vanessa Ferrari is still kicking ass on floor with a dbl dbl tuck! Aside
from Ohashi and maybe Teramoto's beam, I wasn't really impressed with
the beam performances. Well Simone Biles two flic flac to full in tuck
impressed me but not the other parts of her routine.
competition is the beginning of the gymnastics season so I can
understand that not everyone was at their best peak. I will say this
though, I miss Kohei Uchimura's good form and execution.
