*cue Rocky theme*

The time is upon us!

Here are some links to help you follow the World Championships action.

Pre and post-competition round coverage:

Official website HERE.

Gymnastics Australia's Worlds updates HERE.

Rotterdam YouTube Channel HERE.

Gymnastike video coverage HERE (some Aussies featured here, videos are listed in the left hand frame)

LIVE(!!!) quick hits, scores and observations:

I am hoping a livestream, outside of Universal Sports, will crop up. I will update you all if and when one does. Otherwise, follow GA's link to Universal's coverage for team and AA finals.

The online stream that showed Commonwealth Games ( may show prelims. We'll have to wait and see.

Our WAGs kick off day 1 of competition. They start their preliminary competition on vault in subdivision 5, around 2:00am AEDST (possibly nearer to 3:00).

You bring the bumcushions, I'll bring the industrial strength hot chocolates!

Simpson's gymnastics is to die for. I really hope she does go to Massilia and hopefully someone will film her.

Even her dainty little salute right at the start of the basics video is like a rebirth of the Soviet era. It's all in the way she holds her upper body.

I met while she was Anne filming this last night! She missed bars where they looked great too.

16.066 on bars for kexin! That is an out of control score. Can anyone come even close to that? 7.2 dificulty!

1st sub is over. China are well out ahead obviously. These are the average counting scores of the Italians on each event. Execution seems to be judged very harshly.

VT 13.63

UB 13.5

BB 13.85

FX 13.8

good scores for them on floor, we will struggle to reach that.

Hi Guys- I think the Gymnastics Examiner will be great for live blogging. Blythe is up there hammering away on her computer. I will be taking lots of pics for you on the floor!
