Nice! 

Are there any good gymnasts in Slovakia other than Bunce and Barbora Mokošová? I wonder if Slovakia can put together a full team for the 2018 World Championships.

Yes, really awesome. :) It was her first international competition, She qualified as 23rd and finished 22nd. I think it´s a very good result considering our standards :)

 

Well, honestly I have no idea. Certainly there some other girls but their level surely is not quite enough for such competitions right now. Btw in This EYOF we also competed in womens team event and the girls (Chiara Bunce, Karolína Takáčová and Kristína Pýchova) finished 15th out of 37 countries, as I read the reactions our coach was really delighted :d

This is great! Considering Romania finished 10th, this is not so far behind. Slovakia even finished ahead of Belarus, which hired the former head coach of team Brazil (Ukrainian Oleg Ostapenko). Very good result.

Samir Aït Saïd, the guy that many probably remember as "that gymnast who had that horrible accident during the Rio Games" has jumped back to competition this week-end during the french internationals and managed to secure its place in the final tomorrow.

 

He scored 14.900 points which is eactly the score he needed to be in Montréal.

Is this his first competition since Rio?

So, has France set a minimum score for gymnasts to be chosen for the team or something like this? 14.9 is a huge score, maybe even enough for a medal at the World Championships. It's quite ambitious to set a score this high for any gymnast to be chosen for the team, especially when it comes from France, a country not known to be a powerhouse in artistic gymnastics.
