Artistic Gymnastics 2017 Discussion Thread

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.

Low results. Pity.

 

Especially in women's vault.

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.
