No quick hits showed up in my Facebook feed tonight. But results are in:
Lauren Mitchell 1
Georgia-Rose Brown 2
Maryanne Monckton 3
Chloe Sims 4
(interesting to note 2 of the 3 medallists are new Victorians)
Georgia Godwin maintained her #1 ranking from day 1 in juniors, followed by Alex Eade and Emma Nedov.*********************************
Although results are in, I'm amending this post to include some of the observations from Angeandbella who was at the event (texting updates AND and recording vids simultaneously!) I have published them pretty much verbatim so feel free to ask if you don't understand an abbreviation.
Bit of a splatfest. Only saw half the comp because I was videoing.
Lauren okay, similar to recent comps, stacked d-pike. Def put lots of passion into her new floor, maybe a bit overdanced?
Britt 1.5 yurch, okay beam w d-turn, pretty good floor w d-arabian.
MAM more expressive on FX, bouncy out of triple. Fell on aerial CW-LOSO on beam, caught releases. Ash looked okay... bit wobbly on beam, fell on FX.
Chloe nailed d-front dismount on beam in w/u, low in comp, same FX tumbles, a bit wild, to face with d-pike.
Larrissa messed up on bars in comp, but hit w/u. GRB looked okay, just d.twist off beam.
Day 2 -
Larrissa is doing d-arabian again.
MAM just did a perfect w/u on beam, down to stuck d-pike.
Britt stuck a really dynamic Y 1.5.
MAM fell on aerial series on beam, but otherwise solid.
Lauren UB much better tonight.
GRB large wobble on Y-turn and slow connections on beam.
Larrissa good d-arabian (1 step out), but 1 hand down on front LO-front double twist and final 2.5.
Britt fall double turn and FF-LOSO.
Chloe large step punch double tuck front, deep squat d-arabian, fell out of turn, fell back OOB on d-pike.
BB Ash fall side aerial.
GRB v.high on d-pike, pretty clean FX.
Loz okay beam, usual wobbles.
Ash bit low FTDB (I assume this means the tucked full-in?), short on turn, perfect d-pike to sissone.
Mez bouncy on triple twist, made 2.5 punch front-stag, good dance, turns and leaps, high d-tuck and pike.
Chloe hit bars, inbar, inbar 1/2, inbar endo (hit feet going through), v.high jaeger. Bail to HS, stalder shoot to high. Stalder full to FTDB w large step.
Loz fall d-arabian, only slightly short though. Piked full-in to sissone. 2.5 punch front tuck changement. Bit short d-pike. Routine is growing on me slightly!
Jaz Cassis and Godwin both hit FF-FF to 2-2 foot LO. Jaz fell on LOSO, only LO d-mount tonight, but nice. Godwin double wolf. Fall aerial CW. stumble forward d.tuck.
Larrissa inbar full to gienger, bail to HS stalder shoot to high. Inbar 1/2 not over and fell. Repeated and connected to jaeger. Stalder full, FTDB stuck.

GRB short cast, toe on, toe on full, gienger. Jaeger. Bail HS (little short), stalder shoot. Toe half to d-front, small hop.
Larrissa no acro series on beam, missed all connections hand down on 2.5 d-mount.
Chloe weird hitch in mount, made front aerial side somi, fall on FF back tuck. Front somi. Y-turn. Change split, tour jete, wolf. Long pause bf d.mount, coyboy d-front, 1 step back, went overtime.
What I love about gymnastics personally is that a layperson would look at this and go "huh?" but I understood every word! :)
Good luck to the senior and junior men who kick off tonight in Canberra.
