RT @DouglasProbs I saw @gymnastike's interview w/ Gabby was over 5 min long & I was like yes! Then I watched it and was like YES!! Seriously wanna be her BFF
Tonight, NBC created #ryanwieberfever LOVE IT!
Interview @ 4:15, Gabby has trouble answering a question...hilarity ensues! bit.ly/LmPiuL
RT @Diannabeautyxx AWWWWW (": RT @gymnastike: Wieber says she hears her mom in the crowd while she's competing. bit.ly/L9DKQj
RT @TripleTwistBlog Elizabeth Price- " I try to treat practice like a competition, and competitions like a practice" I like that!
INTERVIEW: Kyla Ross "I don't know what happened on vault." bit.ly/MHG0fJ
Wieber, Douglas still keeping it close | RECAP Gymnastikegymnastike.org/article/13274
That's it for night 1! 1 Wieber, 2 Douglas, 3 Raisman, 4 PRICE. Raisman ends the night with a huge 15.60 on FX
Aly Raisman is the best tumbler in the world. Unfortunate off center oob on first pass. Last pass - double pike+massive split jump to end her routine
Big score for @McKaylaMaroney on FX - 15.20! (6.0/9.20). That's what Martha Karolyi wanted to see!
Kyla Ross VT: low, safe landing on yurchenko 2.5. Hand down.
RT @DavidKuzara It really doesn't matter who wins. The last time I checked the Olympics is a team game #USA #Gold
Maroney FX: stuck 3.5! back 2.5+front full, solid. lovely expressive AOGC choreo. Hit her signature pass with room to spare, amazing. HIT. Martha will likely be pleased.
Big VT score for Gabby. 15.80 (6.50/9.30). Baker scored a big 14.60 on FX, nice. (6.50/8.60)
Douglas VT: great Amanar, landed right in the middle. Huge hug from Chow
Baker FX: 1.5 to double arabian+scissone, nice! Epic piked double arabian - she could lay that out! Hit routine for @KennBaker15
Wieber FX: She is on fire. Double double, stick. nailed her triple turn. Double pike last pass. A big 4 for 4 on night 1. #wieberfever
Price put up 2nd biggest score of the night so far on FX! 14.90 (6.0/8.90) And finishes with 59.600 AA! #TeamEbee is proud!
Brenna Dowell stuck her DTY vault. She's been so solid tonight! Kudos.
Price FX: crazy good double double! double layout 2nd pass, awesome. Are you getting this, NBC?! 1.5 to dbl tuck. Double pike. AWESOME!
Kyla Ross sat down amanar in the touch warmup. Gabby stood hers up
1 rotation to go in women's night 1!!
Bad news for Maroney but like bars, beam is not a key event for her. Martha wants to see her HIT floor. THAT is key in getting to London.
Maroney BB: punch front+bhs lay. Front pike+swing down. solid. Switch side. switch 1/2+back tuck. Fall on aerial...
RT @DavidKuzara Kyla is just so darn pleasant to watch. Great basics, landings and style. #Winning
Ross FX: double arabian+stag. good looking full in. 1.5 step out thru to easy double twist. double tuck. beautiful, clean routine
Big score for @gabrielledoug on floor - 15.45 (6.20/9.25)
Baker BB: love the wolf turn. wobble on series. Darn, fall on switch side. Finished with an incredible Patterson dismount!
Crowd LOVES @gabrielledoug
Gabby FX: 1.5 step out thru to triple. Big dbl arabian+stag. Deafening crowd applause, love it! Open tucked full in 3rd pass! Double tuck+scissone.
Vega 14.35 on FX (5.80/8.65/-0.1)
Wieber BB: HIT. Great routine, just a few wobbles. Smoother connection from standing full to back handspring
Vega FX: big pike full in, step oob. 1.5 step out thru to double tuck+stag excellent. great double L turn. nice 2.5+layout. Double pike+scissone. Pretty routine
Price BB: big standing full, boom. side somi. switch+back tuck. wobble on series. Double pike! Smooth through her weakest event.
Dowell FX: front double pike! then double front+stag jump. Beast! Another great hit routine for Brenna. Did you hear she's a future Sooner?
Finnegan scored 14.55 on FX. She did not go out of bounds, my mistake. (6.10/8.45)
Alicia BB: front pike+back tuck mount, yes!! Crowd loved that. Wobble on front tuck. Everything else was super solid.
Aside from that last pass, Finnegan's routine was gorgeous! Love the presentation and difficult turns.
Finnegan FX: piked double arabian. perfect Memmel turn. Crowd clapping along. Double arabian (no whip). darn, big step sideways oob on 2.5 twist.
Aly BB: a solid, typical Aly start. Then a small wobble on punch pike. Didn't let it phase her, finished great. Patterson dismount easy!
After 2: 1 Wieber 31.250, 2 Price 31.250, 3 Ross 30.40, 4 Douglas 30.150, 5 Raisman, 6 Finnegan
Elizabeth Price is in 2nd PLACE after 2 rotations at Olympic Trials! Shout out to #TeamEbee
Nastia scored 14.50 on BB (6.0/8.50)
Tough routine for Becca. She also sat down her Patterson. I saw her do three in podium training, in full routines, and she landed all 3.
Bross BB: NO.. fall on standing arabian.
Gabby BB: wobble on front aerial, stop. bhs lay. standing full. switch+back pike. great switch ring. Double pike. Slow connections, but hit
Mad respect to @AnnaLi_88 for that crazy beam save! #determination
RT @DavidKuzara Jordyn looks the most relaxed its because she is the most prepared. Great job @JohnGGeddert and Kathryn #SheIsAMachine
Li BB: onodi. fluid full twisting bhs. wow... beautiful front aerial, then missed the back handspring & split the beam! She hung on though! Refused to touch the mat
RT @DavidKuzara That my friends is a Gymnova bars error #LowBarReallySpringy #LikeATightrope
Vega BB: She is just beautiful here. Had one wobble early on, everything else was solid. Lovely switch ring. Double pike dismount
Maroney UB: no... fall on maloney transition. Finished with a huge gienger and big full in. Luckily this is not a key event for her.
Dowell BB: solid front aerial+back pike and side somi. 2 back handsprings to a 2.5 twist. Nice hit routine for the 1st year senior
RT @DavidKuzara I really should have more followers. My commentary is right on #LoveDave #GymnasticsIsTheBest
Baker UB: endo. ricna. piked tkatchev caught close, needed an extra swing before overshoot. Stayed with it. Full in dismount.
Nastia BB: beautiful series. switch half+onodi+sheep, semi slow connection. Near fall on switch ring - good save! 2.5 dismount, hop
Wieber UB: nailed the routine. STUCK double layout full out! And John Geddert just pulled a Yin Alvarez!! Love it!
Kyla Ross scored 14.60 on BB (5.70/8.90), Raisman scored 14.20 on UB. Price UB 14.50
Finnegan BB: foot shuffle on standing arabian, still connects to swing down! Solid 2ft lay series. wobble on front aerial, does not connect to next skill. Huge difficulty in this routine. Finished with a nice double pike dismount. She is just beautiful.
Price UB: wielers. shaposh. huge tkatchev. piked ray - usually connects that to overshoot but did not tonight. Not sure why. Double layout full out
Ross BB: missed connection on switch ring, back tuck. wobble on side somi. Roundoff double tuck, STICK! Her cheering section is awesome!
RT @bridgetsloan Well not my ideal way of ending my elite career but I am so blessed and so grateful I was able to make it so far âÂÂÂÃÂ¤âÂÂÂÃÂ¤âÂÂÂÃÂ¤âÂÂÂÃÂ¤
Shannon Miller on Raisman's bars - "I kind of want to glue her legs together. and point her toes"
Aly UB: maloney+overshoot. blind to jaeger. stalder full, tkatchev. Double front clean landing. She survives.
