ILLUSION TURNS – 2015 Master Massilia recap
Mari Ilona Szutenberg – Elite Gym Massilia Recap
ILLUSION TURNS posted quite a few highlight routines from gymnasts from smaller, less well known, nations. One of the best parts of attending a World Championships is a chance to be surprised.
For example, click PLAY or watch Portugal’s Sara Raposeiro on Floor.
In an era when interesting, complex choreography gets very little reward from judges, that set is a winner.

Gymneo posted another free preview on Facebook.
I renewed my membership to Gymneo English for another year. Around 21 hours of excellent WAG coaching tutorials. The French version has more content (36hrs), however.
There was far less controversy regarding judging at Worlds 2015 than at Worlds past.
One of the biggest issues was the ranking of the top Floor finalists. The GOLD on floor was 2nd place, seeing as Simone was in the Final.
Click PLAY or watch Sae Miyakawa’s routine on YouTube.
Click PLAY or watch Margaret Nichols’s routine on YouTube.
Click PLAY or watch Ksenia Afanasyeva’s routine on YouTube.
Click PLAY or watch Chunsong Shang’s routine on YouTube.
At the time I thought Sae’s crazy difficult tumbling would win her the medal.

Simone Biles has more Worlds Gold medals than any gymnast in history. #Glasgow2015
Simone Biles sweeps balance beam, floor exercise, breaks Worlds record
1. Simone Biles USA (6.8 + 9.00 = 15.800)
2. Kseniia Afanaseva RUS (6.4 + 8.700 = 15.100)
3. Maggie Nichols USA (6.2 + 8.80 = 15.800)
Personally I liked Sae Miyakawa for the silver. But I feel for the E-score judging panel trying to evaluate these amazing routines. It was a terrific final. Best in … ever.
