I'm so sorry, folks! I was MIA for the DTB!

I stayed in the city last night so was not able to update any qualification results from the Stuttgart DTB World Cup. And I only just got home to discover that the advertised "Stuttgart" WC on Foxtel is, as predicted, a repeat of Glasgow.

Well here I go now:

Lauren Mitchell is into beam final in 2nd place (between Cheng Fei and Yang Yilin no less), and into floor final in 3rd place. She placed 12th on bars.
Ashleigh Brennan fell twice on floor and ended up 17th, no word on how beam went. She's not into the final, though.

Prashanth Sellathurai into pommel final in 2nd place (15.450), Philippe Rizzo into parallel bars final in 8th place (15.075) and 7th into high bar final (15.225). Apparently he just had a shuffle on the dismount of the latter.


ETA: A new photo of Olivia Vivian has emerged; she attended an OSU football "tailgater" with her teammates. Er... I think it's like a barbecue in the carpark before the Grand Final kinda thing?


ETA (again): An article about Chloe Sims' Utah recruitment has appeared at International Gymnast. You can read it here.

"...although it stung a little to even hear of the Olympics, I realized that there is so much to do in life other than it. So I got off my butt and started a new chapter."
