Japanese Gymnastics


More, Japan Cup

A quick video from yesterday, He Kexin’s 7.4 D-Score bar routine. She’s the first woman to score over a 16 on any event in the new COP.

Huang Qiushuang won the all-around competition on the women’s side with a fall on uneven bars.  The two Russian juniors then filled up the remaining spots on the podium.  Koko Tsurumi finished fourth, with her full twisting Yurchenko instead of a double.

Tatiana Nabieva attempted a 7.2 start value vault, a triple twisting Yurchenko. She didn’t fully rotate it, and she had bad form, but it’s still interesting to watch.

Koko Tsurumi nailed her floor routine, and I feel she was underscored; only a 14.150

Here is Lauren Mitchell’s floor routine, the highest scoring of the meet.
