Yes the Women’s AA Final might mostly be about should Viktoria Komova have won over Jordyn Wieber but for other nations, it’s how well their gymnasts did, even if they didn’t win a medal.

Great Britain’s Hannah Whelan impressed today, she placed 9th in the Women’s All Around Final, showing consistent form all around.  She began on beam with a nice clean routine which started her off in 8th place out of 24 gymnasts. Moving to floor Hannah put in a beautiful and confident routine, looking like she was really enjoying herself out there.  On bars she scored 13.258, her lowest score throughout the competition, however she scored an excellent 14.400 for her Yurchenko 1.5. Overall Whelan improve on her 16th place last year to earn 9th place with 56.124.

Hannah’s form and confidence has much improved since I last saw her at the Glasgow Grand Prix back in April. In my opinion, it’s only up from here for Hannah!
