I found this gem of a two-parter on YouTube. It's catchy and VERY well edited. I particularly like the opening 10 seconds of the first part. Kudos to Bethany, the creator.
If you like your nostalgia, prepare to get a big fat helping.
ETA: The Olympic draw for the preliminary round took place yesterday.
Subdivision 1 – China, Romania and two mixed groups
Subdivision 2 –Great Britain, Italy, Japan and the United States
Subdivision 3 – Australia, Germany, Russia and Ukraine
Subdivision 4 – Brazil, France and two mixed groups
Time-wise, the girls will be competing on Sunday August 10th between 5pm and 6:30pm, and they will be starting on floor exercise.
So Australia will once again have a nervous wait as the likes of France and Brazil finish off their qualification round. Hopefully we can fare better than an 8th place scrape into the final. Better yet, I hope they will benefit from the kind of scoring we saw in Stuttgart, where teams who competed later in the day scored just a little bit better than those who went earlier... like us.
You can't help but feel bad for host nation China, though. They're up early to compete in subdivision 1 and they're starting on beam. A nervous situation on all accounts!
ETA (again): More photos from the recent Friendship Classic are up. Have a scroll around to see the two Aussies pictured in action. I reckon the shots are pretty fantastic (well of course they are... they're the delightful Sarah Kirby's handiwork!)
