    To me Asac no doubt about it. Then maroney and maybe paseka or susho.

  2. Igor Almeida says:

    Valeria Maksyuta from Israel performed a handspring layout front full (5.9) and a double-twisting Yurchenko (5.8) putting her just behind Chusovitina.

  3. Sour says:

    Paseka is out.

  4. Admin says:

    it should be noted that as of Monday Paseka is out.

  5. JP says:

    Barbosa will perform a more difficult vault, and she is cleaner than Chusovitina and the others…i think she has a shot!

  6. AJS says:

    So many of these girls are incredibly sloppy and have very weak 2nd vaults.

  7. JJ says:

    Jennifer Khwela is injured and won’t be at World’s
