YouTube user AureliaGym has begun uploading videos of the Combs La Ville competition. So far she has posted two videos of Emma Collister, UB and FX:



Collister has interesting tumbling but horrible music and uninspired choreography, in my opinion. I couldn't wait for her music to stop!

Hopefully AureliaGym will post videos of the other Aussie girls later.

It's interesting that Emma does all her back tumbles from a round off with no bhs. I can definitely see her adding in a full-in if her coaches choose to go in that direction. She has good difficulty on floor and it looks very upgradable.

UB was clean for the most part but she really needs to up the E score. UB is the event where Aus is lagging behind the rest of the world, which is odd becuase for the early part of the decade it was our best event.

Anon 2.56, I take it you mean Emma has to up the D score on UB? Her execution is pretty good, give or take a few short handstands; it's the difficulty (or lack thereof) that's letting her down. Hopefully that will be fixed somewhere down the line.

I wouldn't worry too much about Australia's future on bars if I were you. Larrissa Miller may be around for a while, and her teammate Georgia-Rose Brown may well follow in her footsteps. Brown is a beautiful bar worker, with lines akin to Miller's. The Perth girls also look promising. They may be all over the place at the moment, but the moment they start hitting those routines, they'll get good scores!
