  2. Dear Queen E,

    Do you have any videos or news of today's events? I was hoping may be you had video of Seda' beam or Shelgunova's floor? I really enjoy your posts and I hope you keep up the good work!

    1. The Georgian Federation hasn't released official results. There are video links in the previous post - and check RRG's Twitter and Facebook pages for pics of the Day 2 medal ceremonies.

  3. Do you by any chance know what's happening with Grishina? Is she coming back any time soon? I miss her :(

  4. Did something happen to Afanasyeva? I know she was only doing vault but her score seems pretty low. Really hoping she hasn't got injured!!

  5. Afanasyeva had a mistake here but is continuing to prepare for Worlds.
    Grishina's situation hasn't changed since the last time I gave an update on RRG - still recovering from her knee injury and unlikely to train for the Olympics.
    No further information officially available.

  6. Grishina gave an interview where she said that she was training for Rio.This was at the beginning of this Summer

    2. Hi Queen Elizabeth, I am wondering if this is the article anonymous saw (link below). It was posted July 25th, although it references sports.ru as the source and I can't seem to find anything on Grishina on sports.ru so not entirely sure if it can be considered reliable. I am no familiar this 'wo gymnast' site. Perhaps another reader can help hunt it down. It mentions that Russia posted a list of potential Rio candidates. Courtesy of the RGF. I would be very curious to see such a published list if such an article is out there.

    3. There was a list and Nastia wasn't on it. Sources close to Nastia tell me she is unlikely to make Rio and certainly she isn't on the official training squad.
      I don't report every minute detail on this blog at the moment - there is too much and everything changes all the time. The best way to determine whether Nastia will even try for Olympics will be to see whether she competes at Russia Cup in September and then at Rusdian nationals in the spring. The list that was earlier published included those gymnasts currently preparing for Glasgow and May well change moving forward.

    1. This assertion is completely false and does not come from a reliable source. Just because Aliya hasn't posted pictures of herself in training for a few days, people are making up rumours about her.
      We will find out for sure who is on the Russian team on the day that the team arrives in Glasgow. Could we please stop these pointless little speculations for the time being?
      I will publish any official news I hear on this blog as soon as I hear it, and will attribute it to the source - but there really is no news at all apart from a few tittle-tattling mischief makers! :-)

  8. Btw on instagram picture : Svetlana Ishmouratova (2006 olympic gold madalist in women's biathlon) and Dmitri Sautin ( 8 time olympic medalist and 2 time olympic champion diver)

  9. Well V.Rod is reliable source for you? If yes, then in her latest interview in "All sport " before Batumi she said "Mustafina have enough starts in this season- FIN" What can be more reliable confirmation...

    1. I am aware of this interview. It confirms absolutely nothing as regards anyone's participation in Worlds.

  10. OK, but it's strange bq A.Rod and V.Rod say same words about Aliya "Mustafina have enough starts in this season - FIN" . It will be interesting what will say people when Mustafina will be absent in the request for worlds.( if not mistaken 24 of september by FIG rules) Then you all will understand the meaning of the same words from Rod about Aliya

    1. Yes - but you know it really isn't surprising that Aliya needs to compete in competitions to be eligible for selection - that is the same for all the gymnasts. I doubt that any of the gymnasts really know for sure if they will compete in Glasgow - yet.
      Let's just stop speculating - we will find out soon enough who will be on the team. And it really isn't that vital that Aliya competes this year anyway!

UPDATE 23/9 - Russian WAG team for Nanning confirmed

Daria Spiridonova will compete at her first World Championships this autumn.  Picture : RGF Natalia Kalugina has confirmed the Russian team for Nanning : Aliya Mustafina, Maria Kharenkova, Tatiana Nabieva,Ekaterina Kramarenko, Alla Sosnitskaya, Daria Spiridonova.  Reserve : Polina Fyodorova Here is a paraphrased translation of a comment by Natalia Kalugina on her Facebook page : 'Aliya has confidence in competition and she is, kind of, a coach to this team.  In Europe she succeeded in this role and she has told the coaches that she even liked it. The main fighting force will be Kharenkova, Sosnitskaya and Spiridonova.  Accordingly, the strongest apparatus will be beam (Marina Bulashenko With God!).  The Chinese women, of course, have been known to win that apparatus, but if one falls, they all fall.   Alla Sosnitskaya could compete in the vault final, and - in theory - on the floor. On bars, of course, Russia will probably lose to the Chinese women, but they should be able to hold

Who really won the WAG All Around?

You will find a link to the FIG's newly published book of results at the Olympic Games here .  This year, they have broken down the judge's execution scores so you can see exactly how each judge evaluated the gymnasts' performances.  It makes for interesting reading - if only I had more time to analyse each judge's marking.  A skim reading already highlights multiple inconsistencies in individual judges' marks and makes you wonder why they bother with the jury at all. I have taken the time to look at the reference judges' scores for the top four in the women's all around.  The FIG explains here what their role is, and how they are selected.  I even used my calculator, which is a risky thing in my hands.  My, how I wish we could have seen a similar document for the Tokyo World Championships. I wonder if anyone can explain how, if the FIG's Code of Points is so objective and fair, it is possible to come up with two different results using two differ

Nominative registrations, WAG European Championships

Sadly, Komova is out of the competition, replaced by Kramarenko.  We have to wait for official notification from the Federation, or from Viktoria herself, of the reason. http://www.ueg.org/images/event/114/Nominative%20entry%20ECh%20WAG%20Sofia%202014.pdf Mustafina Kharenkova Spiridinova Sosnitskaya Kramarenko Juniors Maria Bondareva Anastasia Dmitrueva Seda Tutkhalyan Angelina Melnikova Daria Skrypnik
