So, it looks like Dina Averina had a knot in her ribbon throughout her routine. According to FIG's guidelines, she should have been evaluated only through her throws and risks, what would severely limit her score to something around 12 or 13, instead of over 20 points. Let's see how FIG will handle the situation. The right thing to do would be promoting Taseva to gold, Harnasko to silver and Pazhava to bronze.

But we all know as long as "Mamma" Viner is alive, FIG Rhythmic gymnastics won't challenge her "protegees" scores.

And this is exactly the reason why, though it is my favorite sport right now, rhythmic gymnastics cannot be taken seriously. We all know this sport is not known for diversity among medalists, but when Russian gymnasts receive scores that should never be awarded to them, this is outrageous.

The Code of Points implemented since 2017 increases the dominance of individual gymnasts from powerhouse nations (Russia, Bulgaria, Ukraine, Belarus and, in recent years, Israel). It's like FIG wants the sport never to grow beyond the same old group of nations. It's still Bulgaria and former Soviet nations against the rest of the world, and this is frustrating. In group events, the only real surprises since 2017 were Mexico and Estonia, but surprise: Estonia is still a former Soviet nation. Lithuania has improved a lot in junior events as well, but then again, another former Soviet nation. :nopompom:

Brazil, Mexico, Cuba, Canada and the United States will send groups to the Baku World Cup. Now, this will be very interesting! All of the medal contenders at the upcoming Pan Am Games up against one another.
