Can someone (that remotely follows gymnastics) tell me if the world cup in Baku was a serious occasion or did the good athletes skip this competition? Because I've noticed that Lithuania snatched two medals and I am wondering if it's something promissing or is he just performing well, because the competition is weak.

We won some medals too, however it doesn't appear like the competition was particularly strong. World Cups in gymnastics are usually not something what the best athletes attend, but this one in Baku didn't even have the best Azerbaijani gymnasts.

Alright, thanks for the info, that's pretty much the conclusion that I came up with after I saw the gold, bronze and 6th place :p

Still, a gold medal is a marvelous international result for Lithuania. Congratulations! :toast:

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.

I'm surprised also. If Brazil manages to win any medal in WAG, I will be more than happy.

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.

I think that's because the code of points has been changed after RIo 2016. Scores in 2017 appear to be quite a bit lower.


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.
