  1. Awwww. Speedy recovery for her.
  2. Thank you. I confirmed it later... She placed fourth. Great achievement for India. I wonder if she can earn enough support to take part at World and Challenge Cup events. It will be amazing if she eventually snatches a medal at the World Cup circuit. Any news about Dipa Karmakar? Last thing I heard about her is that she is training a new vault, and I really want her to nail it and win a medal at the World Championships this year.
  3. My reply is somewhat late, but you are right. Women's scores had a 0.5 decrease on Balance Beam, Uneven Bars and Floor. Vault scores had, roughly, a 0.4 decrease compared to last year.
  4. So, the Asian Championships are underway and we got to see some nice surprises so far. First, Pranati Nayak from India earned a bronze medal on vault. As of now, there are no official results, but a Twitter account mentions she earned a medal. This is very surprising, and this makes me happy. I really hope someone has recorded her vaults. We also have medalists from Iran, Hong Kong and Chinese Taipei. It's always nice when different countries make it to the podium. Finally, the Chinese girls are on fire with HUGE scores on beam. I'm speechless at their qualification scores and I'm looking forward to a great performance tomorrow as well. EDIT: It looks like India did not get a medal after all. Still no official results. Asian Gymnastics Union sucks.
  5. Edit: Originally I thought Pranati Nayak had won a bronze medalist on vault according to a tweet, at the Asian Artistic Gymnastics Championships. But I cannot confirm this information. Do you guys have any reliable sources?
  6. This link shows some news (in Portuguese) about Brazil's participation at the 2017 Jesolo Trophy. What surprised me is that Roger Medina, coach of newcomer Thais Fidelis, believes she will win a medal at the World Championships. Now, this is totally uncommon in Brazil. In every interview they say they will aim for solid routines, never for a medal. I'm surprised they are so confident right now.
  7. Amazing! Prokopenko really deserved an Olympic medal, and I'm so glad she's on her way to get one, now!
  8. Is there a date and a location for the Grand Prix Final already?
  9. Still, a gold medal is a marvelous international result for Lithuania. Congratulations!

  11. This is weird. Two weeks ago Viner (head coach for Russia) said Kudryavtseva had retired. Kudryavtseva herself said she was not retiring anytime soon, and Viner said again that she had retired. I believe Kudryavtseva was forced to retire, since it was clear that Viner would not allow her to compete for Russia again.
