Australia's women bettered their prelims performance and finished 7th in the team final last night, counting one major fall across their competition, a slip in an otherwise glamorous performance from Larrissa Miller on floor. She's bound for redemption in the final this weekend.
Said routine, the only one of Australia's to be broadcast on the live online stream last night, can be seen at 00:35:00 here. I am very frustrated they showed Georgia saluting for beam then cut away.
Scores were brilliant on beam and booming on bars, talk about hitting when it counts in 6-3-3!
Liv says thumbs up!
The team are to be commended, and the only way from here is up and up some more. Monckton tweeted after the competition that she plans to have her Yurchenko double next year, and Vivian is no doubt to get her Schludern signature skill down pat.
