It was a terrible team meet for Canada, but the Canucks were not at all the only team to suffer.

Ryan details what happened Day 2 on his site Let’s Talk Gym.

Claudia Fragapane is the star of the meet so far.

Should be a good show down between Claudia and Ellie Black in the AA final.

England, Australia, Wales

Canada 4th.

Australia and Wales will be happy with those medals. Congratulations. That’s a 1st Team medal ever for the Welsh.

Canada ranked only 4th after half the apparatus. That’s a disappointment. Isabela Onysko and Victoria-Kayen Woo had misses on the team’s weakest event, Bars.

Here’s a GymCan post on Facebook.

Australia’s women gymnasts are right in the thick of the battle for Commonwealth Games gold going into day two of the artistic teams event in Glasgow.

Flawless routines on the uneven bars by Georgia-Rose Brown and Larrissa Miller propelled the Aussie into second place behind England following two of the four apparatus in the teams event at a packed Hydro on Monday night. …

Miller, Brown lead Aussie gymnastics surge

The best commentary I’ve seen so far is by Lauren Hopkins on her new site, The Gymternet – 2014 COMMONWEALTHS: QUALIFICATION DAY 1 RECAP

England, Whitlock lead Commonwealths

After 3 of 6 apparatus are completed, team totals are:


England 133.806
Scotland 127.240
Canada 125.380

From that we can predict the Team podium. Something astonishing would have to happen to change the top 3. Or to change the medal ranking.

Whitlock is the favourite to win the AA.

More interesting is seeing which competitors will qualify for Apparatus Finals. Maximum 2 / nation.

Some of the top medal contenders qualifying scores.
