If most people ran around London naked, hanging off rooftops or running through tube stations, they’d probably be arrested, however World Freerun Championship winner Tim Shieff managed to get away with it. …

A few leftover photos from the excellent venue at Worlds.
Our friends from the Netherlands captured some pics yesterday. How have we gone this long in China without seeing the little kids training?

Is this the most artistic Artistic Gymnastics team USA has fielded?
The Aussies looked super prepared. Very clean. Had smart routines.
With a 7th place finish in Team without former world champion Lauren Mitchell who withdrew last minute after an ankle injury in training, you’d best put the Aussies on the list of teams that will qualify for Rio. Some Down Under had doubts.

For those nations that will not qualify for the top 24 teams, this IS the Olympics. It’s great to see teams from so many developing nations. Even Angola.
Say no more.

China is much closer to USA than I would have expected.
Bars was a shocker. Any of the 5 girls could qualify to the Bar Final. Second in the line-up, Tan Jiaxin, dismounts double double layout!
They are the dominant Bars nation making the “compulsory” routine done by the best of the rest look (somehow) easy.
Beam was excellent too. China is always beautiful on Beam, but did make mistakes. They could fall. It’s possible. Without a fall I predict they finish ahead of ROM, USA, ITA …
After all that excitement, Team China moved to Floor. Not good. Shang warmed up 3 ½ after her routine. Other than that, most of the tumbling was average or weak. The Floor is hard, not helping girls who weigh 45-65 pounds.
Despite lacking power, the Chinese girls run slowly into their Tumbling.
USA should finish a fair bit ahead of China on FX.
We expected the same story on Vault. But – surprisingly – China has 4 DTYs. One very weak. One quite strong.
Many expected that the Chinese girls would be tired and sore having just come from Asian Games, but so far they are getting through.
Bottom line. If USA has a fall in 3-up, 3-count Team Final, it could be very close.
