The German Olympic Trials really showed the team to be a lot stronger than previously thought. The five member team scored a 175 which would have been enough for bronze in Glasgow last year. Lets go over their team potential with their D-Scores from that competition and their Nationals in June.
Brazil – 71.2*
Japan – 73.0
Russia – 74.5
China – 77.0
USA – 77.2
*Brazil has shown some upgrades since my post, and I will need to update it later
What’s really holding this German team back is vault and floor. If they could have one more DTY instead of a FTY they’d go to 71.5, ahead of where Brazil was when I did their analysis. Their bar lineup however is insane. Only China’s bar rotation has a greater potential than theirs.
