Feast your eyes on some of the quick hit links below from 9:00pm AEDST to follow the Aussie girls in action in preliminary finals. (Unfortunately the subdivision will not be livestreamed, by USAG at least.)
Gymnastics Australia has confirmed that the lineup will not include Lauren Mitchell and the start list (page 41) reflects as such. Our all-arounders will be Vivian, Brown and Munteanu.
Best wishes to all the girls. They don't have an easy task but we know they will do their very best!
(UPDATE - An NNTV (TV China) link is here, they keep crossing to the arena so we *might* see Australia on it?)
EDIT 10:10PM THE NNTV LINK IS WORKING I CAN SEE AUSTRALIA ON BARS!
PURPLE FLAME LEO!
During warmup, IG updated this:
"Lauren Mitchell was scheduled to compete here and even did podium training, but after that she injured her ankle on the landing of a 2-1/2 twist to punch front. It's a soft tissue injury, but there is just not enough time for it to heal well enough for her to compete. We all look forward to see her in Glasgow next year!!!"
