After a very boring year, here is hoping for 2018 to be better. Apart from the World Championships and the World/Challenge Cup stages, we will have lots of other international tournaments this year: South American Games, Commonwealth Games, Pan American Championships, Youth Olympic Games, Asian Championships, Mediterranean Games, European Championships and a lot of Grand Prix events.

Russia is expected to dominate the sport once again, with Bulgaria, Israel and Belarus trailing right behind. Georgia and Italy also have some great individual gymnasts. Spain, Ukraine and Azerbaijan will need to improve their game after a slow year in 2017. The United States, Brazil, China and Hungary could achieve good results as well, but are mostly dark horses in international competition right now.

Thank you! I was looking for a live score system, but the official website is not helpful at all. If you find a live stream, please PM me.

They are showing the opening ceremony now, and it looks like they will show part of the individual qualification, which is nice.

I am very surprised. I expected the competition to be a lot weaker. Everyone is far from their best shape, but some of these girls mean business (especially both Russians, both Israeli and the Italian girl). Before the competition, I even thought this could be the perfect opportunity for Nicol Ruprecht (from Austria) to sneak into a final and hopefully fight for a medal, but nope. 

The last few years were amazing for the sport, with new countries earning medals at the World Cup for the very first time: Brazil and Switzerland in 2013, Finland in 2014, Georgia in 2015, and the United States in 2016. Then in 2017 we did not have a new country earning a medal, and in 2018 competition is very, very tough since the first stage. Whoa.
