Ashleigh - good routine. Small wobble after switch ring leap. Very controlled. Slight movement after dismount but no major dramas.
Lauren - great leaps. Front aerial to 2 feet into back tuck. Nice double turn down close to beam. 2 flips to double pike dismount. Step on landing. Great routine.

Many thanks to source/s.
Looks like the girls are really feeling the pressure and some are handling it better than others. Olivia and Ashleigh were clearly having an up and down day, and there were some surprise OOB's (poor Lauren and that pesky piked arabian!).
Good luck for Day 2, ladies.
