The Men and Women compete in the All Around competitions today. It should be a fantastic competition, for the Women especially. I fully expect Mustafina to take the title but Dementyeva to also perform excellently. Seitz should also perform well on home turf. I see the 2 Russians on the podium but the other spot could be anyone’s should they keep it together. Numerous bloggers picked Musatfina as their All Around champion and Phillip Boy for the Men. Check out the discussion here.
The Men’s All Around competition will begin at 2pm – 4.30pm (German time). Follow the Gymnastics Examiners live blog. The Women’s scheduled for 7pm – 9pm. Again, check out the Full Twist TV and Online coverage post for details.
Below is the first rotation in each competition.
I’m rooting for Dan Purvis in the Men’s competition. He seems to get better and better at each competition and always has more to give. I also expect Phillip Boy to do well, he will probably take the gold but I would love for Purvis to place in the medals.
