    If you watch the routines from this competition and the European Championships the coaches re-arranged some skills in the beam routine. It’s clear that it benefitted her because this is one of the first if not the first 16+ routine I’ve seen this year.

    Interesting score – a beautiful routine, but 7.0 D???? I calculated a D of 6.5 , though she was aiming forD score of 6.8. People always complained of inflated scores of American gymnasts in US Championship and American Cup , but not too much about these scores!!! Come on – a 16.2??? Mustafina 14.6 beam and 9+ E score for her vault??? Goes to show u it’s the placement of the gymnasts that matters more.

    Nice routine but I think this is a bit bias coming out of the Russian Camp for that score. She has way too many balance checks to post that score (Small & Large) This is the highest score I seen thus far coming from any competition. I also agree with Hai. The minute an American post any type of high score it’s because it’s American judges scoring but it’s NEVER the case when it’s another country ” Russia”. I doubt this she’ll get any where near this score at worlds
