Rio 2016

Updates after Podium Training

Edit (5:20pm August 5): Angelina Melnikova has reportedly upgraded to a 6.7 uneven bars routine, all the information below is updated to reflect this.

Podium training was everything it should be for me, it got me so excited for the competition and really made me realize that the Olympics are finally here!  Of course, some of the gymnasts unveiled some upgrades so I hope to be able to update everything from what I could gather!

  • Hong Un Jong finally showed the triple twisting Yurchenko.  She did it once in practice the other day with a bump from her coach and after crashing some in podium training today, landed one.  This vault is valued at a 6.8.
  • Aliya Mustafina reportedly did a Komova transition and her eponymous dismount on bars as well as a whip to full-in on floor.  This makes her bar routine up to a 6.8 and her floor routine up to a 6.0.
  • Giulia Steingruber did dismount with the double layout on floor, bumping her D-Score there up to 6.5.
  • Catalina Ponor connected her switch half to her Kochetkova and did a full twisting double pike dismount on beam.  This raises her difficulty value by four tenths, up to a 6.3.
  • Ellie Downie added a Patterson dismount to her beam routine, moving it up to a 6.3 difficulty routine.
  • Rebeca Andrade connected five skills in her bar routine together – Shaposh, Stalder 1/1, Tkatchev, Pak, toe-on 1/2.  This makes her routine out of a 6.5 now.  She also added back in the 1-1/2 twisting double tuck on floor moving that D-Score up to 6.0.
  • Jade Barbosa did a double layout as her first pass and moved the whip to full in as her second.  She also warmed up a back 1-1/2 to front 2/1, a pass she last competed in Beijing.  If she competes all of this, she moves up to 6.2.
  • Sanne Wevers trained the BHS 1/1 mount to two BHSs on the beam, which would make her difficulty value a 6.9, and the hardest in the world right now.
  • Aiko Sugihara has been practicing a double turn in Y position on beam.  Adding that to her beam routine brings it up to a 6.1.
  • Sae Miyakawa was seen vaulting a DTY, something that I haven’t seen since the Youth Olympic Games.  While this doesn’t add anything to the team’s difficulty since she also does a Rudi, it does bring a real possibility of her qualifying into event finals.  The same goes for Brittany Rogers who upgraded her second vault from a Lopez to a Mustafina.
  • Mai Murakami hit her quad turn in her floor routine today, along with the rest of her difficulty.  She’s now at a 6.7 there.
  • Shallon Olsen warmed up an Amanar in addition to her Khorkina II vault.  She could have an outside chance at a vault medal depending on how others do.
  • Ellie Black connected a Hindorff from her shaposh, upping her difficulty there to a 6.0.

However unfortunately, Shang Chunsong had a fever and couldn’t do full difficulty in podium training today.  Reports are that her fever broke afterwards but it’s unsure what level she’ll be competing at on Sunday.  Ellie Downie also reportedly walked out of the arena before vault, so it’s unclear if she’s injured or not.

This is all I could find at the moment.  There may be more and if you know of any before Sunday, please let me know!

Here is how it changes the rankings.
