It was not the brightest start of Worlds qualifications but I am very happy to report the hit routine of Georgia Mae Fenton on uneven bars and of Claudia Fragapane on floor. They are already setting the bar really high for qualification in the event finals. Amy Tinkler was amazing on vault but didn’t manage to rise to her usual level on the other events. Still, she leads the all around qualifications with a 52.831 total. The Australian women had many mistakes and were pretty disappointed at the end of the qualifications. Still, Georgia Godwin will likely qualify for the all around final with a 51.874, after hit routines on bars and beam. Ana Perez from Spain unfortunately fell on the full in double layout dismount on her spectacular bars routine but she is still in 2nd place all around at the end of subdivision 1 (52.732). Here are my live notes:
