Yet another super-week is upon us and we can’t decide what to do first. Shake fist at Doha for being in the middle of the work week (well, for most of us)? Find out more about each event and their schedules? Organize our own schedule and align it after we find all the live gymnastics feeds?
But let’s take a step back and attempt recap of what the past 7 days have offered us in terms of gym-related news and events:
Doha World Cup – Swiss star Giulia Steingruber dominated qualifications top placements for two event finals. Find the rest of the results here.
Vault and bars finals took place on Thursday, find more here.
Last apparatus finals are on Friday starting with 5pm local time, results to follow on TCG.
