Sylvie Seilnacht won Vault. We can argue whether or not this should be a 10.0 start. Personally I’m happy to see anything different than Y 1/1.

Bretschneider’s BIG routine

Incredible. But overuse of one kind of element?

Katelyn Ohashi is tough

A do-over was allowed after Katelyn’s foot knocked out the Beam end cap.

UCLA freshman Katelyn Ohashi stood tiptoe on the balance beam in Arizona’s McKale Center. With one more dismount, her debut as an all-around competitor in college gymnastics would be complete. …

“The end of the beam came off,” said coach Valorie Kondos Field. “Her foot stepped on that, and (she) had a very scary fall, landing on her neck.” …

Ohashi, though, was quick to stand on her feet again and Kondos Field said afterward that the freshman was uninjured.

The judge panel ruled that the failed dismount was caused by an equipment malfunction and, to ensure fairness of play, Ohashi was allowed another go on the beam.

“I was definitely not expecting that at all,” Ohashi said. “But they asked me if I wanted to do it again. And I was like, yeah, of course.” …

Kondos Field was not enthusiastic about pushing the freshman to the front line. She told Ohashi that she didn’t have to go and that she could also do an easier dismount. But Ohashi refused both offers, insisting on completing a full routine. …

The judges gave Ohashi a 9.825 – a new career best for the freshman. The beam score was added into the individual total of 39.375 that won Ohashi the all-around meet.

The NCAA is super cautious when it comes to medical issues. I’m surprised medical let her back on the Beam so quickly.

Ashleigh Gnat 10.0 Vault

OK. You could deduct this vault. But I’m happy to see the only DTY in the NCAA rewarded. Congratulations Ashleigh.
