I'm here! I'm here!
Brindabella's texting me dutifully so here goes...
* McGrath having difficulty with comaneci saltos
* Arena boasting its biggest crowd of the competition today
Competition gets underway...
* Dennis VT 1 13.650 VT2 12.125
* Budack VT1 13.675 VT2 13.350
* Chung and Nedov both suffer a fall on bars
* McGrath messy on bars but gets through it. 11.300
* Chung UB 12.125
* Donald prepares for bars, looks confident. 13.625
* Shar-lee Clark UB 11.950
* Joura UB good routine, 13.425
>>> Donald 1, Joura 2, Possibly Chung 3
* Miller out of BB/FX final? Looks good for UB warmup.
* Great beam from Nedov (questionable sheep jump), one step back on dismount.
Mez's dilemma - both laptop and phone are running out of battery and I have only one powerpoint at a convenient distance. Gaaaaaah.
* Morgan lands UB dismount to knees. Wheeler over-arches on handstand on low bar, hits feet on floor. Over-arches on high bar, falls, then falls on dismount.
* Amaya King-Koi hits a nice beam set despite fall on first series.
* Miller hits foot on the high bar (Brindy's unsure what skill it was), seems to really rattle her. Does a fine dismount, if a little off centre.
* Exum BB fall
* Wheeler UB 10.950
* King-Koi BB 11.825
* Miller UB 13.200 with a difficulty level of 6.2
* Nedov beam 13.550. McGrath BB a nice routine but overtime again. 12.900 revised to 12.800
* Budack UB 11.800 with difficulty score of 4.3
* Monckton UB 13.550 good routine, 5.6 difficulty
* Chung BB 12.500 Joura lots of bobbles for 12.050
* Brooks UB falls on dismount
* Bonora UB a few leg separations, sticks dismount for 14.300
* Donald BB a few wobbles but no falls
* Morgan called out for beam finals but is not there???
I text after a few minutes- "did she show up?"
The reply: "No!"
>>> Bonora has "definitely won bars by a mile!" Looks to be Miller 2, Monckton 3
* Morgan has scratched from beam final.
* Budack BB 9.925?
* Katie Wurth FX 12.950. King-Koi headbutts floor on last pass. 12.500
