Amanda Turner posted full results on IG.

1. Aliya Mustafina 59.850
2. Anastasia Grishina 57.400
3. Yevgenia Shelgunova 57.250

4. Ksenia Afanasyeva 56.850
5. Kristina Goryunova 55.950
6. Anna Dementyeva 55.400
7. Anna Pavlova 54.450

Not sure whether they used the Russian “bonus” system or not. Either way, Russia and Moustafina are the favourites to win European Championships 2013. At home.


1. David Belyavsky 87.950
2. Nikita Ignatyev 87.800
3. Dmitry Stolyarov 86.250

4. Andrei Cherkasov 85.700
5. Pavel Russinyak Volga 84.650
6. Dmitry Gogotov 84.600

… Konstantin Pluzhnikov — rumored to be seeking citizenship to compete for Azerbaijan — was absent. …

There were 51 competitors in the WAG competition and 50 in the Men’s. Healthy.

At Chinese Individual Championships 2012, I saw about 50 girls, 100 guys. Most of the World 2012 Team was excused, however.
