.... Will be happening right here, so watch that countdown clock!
While this Twitter is updating scores -- if you're reading this at 9pm Saturday they're doing it RIGHT NOW! GO GO GO GO GO GO!
Update 12:40am: Unfortunately I won't be staying up to watch the senior competition.
I can tell you, however that Australia's juniors had a mixed bag of a day, finishing in 5th place as a team. Results courtesy of the Italian Gymnastics Federation can be found here.
Update Sunday: Good morning!
Rewatch the coverage from the senior team and AA event here.
The introduction of the gymnasts is particularly interesting. Instead of marching in behind flags on poles, the athletes walk out behind flagbearers carrying their flag aloft as though it were a military ceremony. Then, an excerpt of each country's national anthem is played before they are sent off to start rotations.
The senior team finished in 4th. Australia's highest AA finisher was Kiara Munteanu in 9th. I have had a quick skip through the footage, I landed on more Aussies in the second half of it then the first so I'll go back and watch in full later today. Kiara stood up her double arabian like an absolute pro (but the same unfortunately can't be said for the punch tuck half on beam, eeeeesh) and Alex Eade has a fun new floor!
A Couch Gymnast wrap up is here. Full results can be seen here.
Update 9:45pm Sunday - apparatus finals happening right now, right here!
