Thank you! 

Once more a disappointing competition for female Brazilian gymnasts. I knew their level was a lot lower compared to the girls from 2014, but their results are much worse than I expected. 

 

Who's the best Brazilian female gymnast atm?

I think that Rebeca Andrade is the best Brazilian gymnastic, i love her exercises. I'm very curious about @thiago_simoes's opinion :)

Junior: Luísa Helena (she placed seventh at the Pan Ams)

Senior: Flávia Saraiva (though Rebeca Andrade is coming back)

I knew Luísa Helena would place behind the Americans and the Canadians, but placing behind two three Argentinian gymnasts was a tough pill to swallow. The money invested in Luísa Helena was huge. In the end, she is out of shape (for a gymnast), performing low difficulty and behind three gymnasts from a nation which does not invest nearly as much in gymnastics. Unacceptable. Kudos to Argentina, of course, but shame on Brazil for allowing this to happen.

Did get to know :clap::cheer:

So I was excited because she missed the Olympic bronze in Rio 2016 finishing 4th and is the only female Olympic gymnast up-to date from India know for her death vault of Produnova  and she is returning after a long long time.

She did well not to perform the Produnova anymore (she had huge mistakes in execution) and she also did well to keep her double twisting tsukahara (also a very hard vault, and she performs it well). Her average score (14.150) was pretty good and she can even increase it for the World Championships if she improves her execution.
