So projects Queen Elizabeth on the Rewriting Russian Gymnastics blog:
Romania will most likely be strongest there; Iordache and Bulimar are both currently on excellent form. Personally speaking, I hope Russia will fight for silver and I am expecting that they may finish with bronze. Britain is looking strong for these Championships and Italy and Germany could be in contention too if they have good competitions. …
Euros and injury update – Afanasyeva, Kramarenko, Komova and more
Many of the Russian gymnasts are injured and/or recovering from surgery. 😦
Team Russia at this point is Rodionova, Spiridinova, Sosnitskaya, Kharenkova and captain Mustafina (2 apparatus).
Komova and Afan are both in the same German hospital right now. Messing around. 🙂
