Home at last, but I'm so behind on everything! Quick - is there still that election thingummy on? Who's winning the cross country water polo? Are all the members of B*witched still alive? IS BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH STILL TRENDING ON TWITTER!?!?
Right. Yes. *adjusts Media fedora just-so*
I'm well behind on all the Youth Olympics goings-on and for the moment am stuck with a slow PC that doesn't open too many links or show video. All I can tell you thus far is that...
- Brody-Jai Hennessy has qualified through to the men's high bar final
- Gymnastics Australia has links to articles and live streaming of the Games although...
- If you have Foxtel Digital like me, you can check our their dedicated YOG channel (517) that I discovered this morning!
Cracking stuff. Best wishes to the rest of our competitors this week. I hope to give you more comprehensive coverage (and even watch some of that live stream) when my laptop coughs and splutters back to life.
Now, who out there wants a stodgy Langkawi keyring...?
ETA: Got the stream working in time to see Angela TOTALLY NAIL BEAM! Stuck double twist dismount. The commentators and crowd just loved it. GO ANGELA! Scored a 14.400.
Moments later: These guys are rubbish and obviously totally new to watching gymnastics - I've taken my headphones out until Angela starts on floor.
Floor- had a big jump back on the opening double pike and closing double tuck but a great effort. Looks like the latter MIGHT have gone out of bounds. On the replay... ooh, it was very close! Scored 13.100, still sitting in second place AA before 3 rotations are completed.
Hm... they started showing Angela's vault and then cut to floor. Oh dear! It appears we have missed out. At the end of this second subdivision she has finished in 4th place! Congratulations Angela!
Some videos are going up at this YouTube channel.
A summary (written before all subdivisions were completed) is here. Apparently Angela finished equal 6th? She's through to the all-around final, the bars final and the beam final, wooohooo!
