    Floor – Larissa Iordache and Diana Bulimar has everything to repeat the success of Doha. Jade Barbosa could surprise. The surprise were two Canadians, Briannah Tsang and Stefanie Merkle. Kim Bui, Julie Croket ChunSong Shang and close the list.
    Beam – Again the double Bulimar / Iordache stood out, with the underdog Jing Ying Tam Again, Jade in the final. Bui, Croket, Shung and Ekaterina Baturina close the list.
    Bars – Single to encore the same device at the show – Jessica Lopez went gold three years ago – can reprise the feat in 2010. Grishina got a place alongside the German Hill and Lisa Bui, the revelation of Ljubljana Noemi Makra, Laura Waem the underdog, and Shang and Anna Rodionova.
    Floor – Without Giulia Steingruber, Chusovitina has everything to take the gold. Two Brazilian – Adrian Gomes and Jade. Exorcising La Roche, Janine Berger. The underdog Makarena Adasme, Bui, Alla Sosnitskaya Shang and close the list.

    Jade Barbosa takes gold in jump, beating the favorite Oksana Chusovitina who took silver and bronze with Adrian Gomes. It’s not easy to beat a living legend six Olympics. Bars Anastasia Grishina still packed by the good results of Moscow and will be established as a faithful over the balance of the Russian fleet. Lisa Katherine Hill took the silver and bronze Chinese Shunsong Sang. A favorite for gold, Jessica Lopez, because he had won the final stage of the World Cup in Portuguese lands in 2010 – plummeted and took fifth. Other highlights were the diamonds in the rings to Arthur Zanetti – packed by further strengthening the training equipment in the old CT Velodrome – and Diego Hypolito the floor.

    With two gold medals (beam and floor), Larissa Iordache is sacred queen Anadia. The jump was with Brazilian Jade Barbosa, bars and floor with Anastasia Grishina another Romanian, Diana Bulimar, who won bronze on beam. But who was surprised the Chinese Shunsong Chang, who left the event with a silver and two bronzes in the beam (floor and bars). Completing the podium, Oksana Chusovitina (Silver) and Adrian Gomes (bronze), both the jump and Lisa Hill (silver bars).


    Jade Barbosa favorite for the World; Iordache and Bulimar is dual to knock on beam and floor; Grishina another reinforcement for the Russian team in Antwerp; Shunsong Chang’s hope Chinese, German team resents the defending champion Elizabeth Seitz; Steingruber again is the real proof of the Swiss team, like the british team still seeks a place in the sun. Osijek is a new page to be written.
