The nominative entrants for the Moscow World Cup next month have been released today.Download here.  Both the MAG and WAG line ups looks fantastic, lets hope they stay this way when the definitive list is released. These gymnasts have been invited to compete, so hopefully they all will attend. More details for the competition can be found on the FIG’s website here. These athletes have qualified to be eligible to attend the competition.

The WAG invitee line up consists of Beth Tweddle, Imogen Cairns, Lauren Mitchell, Vasiliki Millousi, Ana Porgras, Tatiana Nabieva, Jessica Lopez, Rebecca Bross, Diana Maria Chelaru, Ariella Kaeslin, Alicia Sacramone, Anna Dementyeva, Vanessa Ferrari, Lu Sui, Liufang Wu, Sandra Izbasa, Hannah Whelan, Qiushuang Huang, Elisabeth Seitz and Yana Demyanchuck to name just a few. View the nominative competitors below. I’m delighted to see A Sac and Bross on the list, I’m rather excited about it so I hope that they accept the invite although I expect the line up to change a lot. Obviously Mustafina will not be competing but another gymnast will be added to replace her in due course.

**Update** USA Gymnastics have tweeted and confirmed that no US WAG gymnasts will compete in Moscow. Apologies all, sorry for getting your hopes up! That’s a real pity. Leyva and Legendre will compete for MAG for US.

The MAG competition will possibly have Thomas Bouhail, Louis Smith, Prashanth Sellathurai, Flavius Koczi, Daniel Purvis, Theo Segar, Yibing Chen, Cyril Tommasone, Alexander Shatilov, Zhe Feng, Epke Zonderland and Eleftherios Petrounias. View the full line up below.

Tatiana Nabieva online provides the link to the nominative entries.

    Rafael Martinez (Spain) said on twitter he was going to compete on high bar, but he isn’t listed… also it would be a surprise if Sacramone and Bross compete in Russia…

    Yes these are they nominative entries who have been invited to compete, not who will be competing. I would love to see Sacramone and Bross compete in Russia, it would be great. I would be delighted to see Martinez compete too.
