Glasgow 2014: Rhythmic Teams

Despite some absolutely beautiful routines and determination to see each one through to the very last beat, Australia's statuesque rhythmic gymnastics trio were not able to defend the Commonwealth title from 2010.

Dani, Amy and Jaelle finished a commendable fifth overall with 126.725, some minor errors seeing them slip behind longtime rivals Canada, history-makers Wales, Malaysia and England.

I was not able to catch all of the broadcast last night or this morning, but enjoyed what I saw of Danielle's stunning ball and ribbon routines in full. What a stunner.

The results can be viewed here (it even lists their music!), click on team or competitor names for further information. You can also relive a few routines from the arena thanks to coach Danielle LeRay!

The great news is we get to see Jaelle and Dani take to the floor again in the individual all-around final which should get underway on OneHD/TenPlay Glasgow 2 very, very shortly!

What are you suggesting? That the Australian team is weak so the stronger countries are sending their good ones home?

According to the roster Lauren is up 3rd on beam and floor. Kind of weird. Maybe so the 4th and 5th gymnast can 'go for it' with, hopefully 3 good scores locked in. Soooo....all 5 gymnasts compete on each apparatus?? Is this correct?
