Germany over Romania

1. Germany, 220.00
2. Romania, 219.05
3. Switzerland, 212.40

1. Larisa Iordache 58.950
2. Giulia Steingruber 56.700
3. Pauline Schafer 55.600

Larisa Iordache performed wonderfully, winning the all-around, vault, beam, and floor titles. But she will have to keep up consistent all-around performances in Nanning, putting the bulk of this team’s weight on her tiny shoulders, which could be too much pressure for her.

The team didn’t perform horribly, exactly, and had this been a three count situation like it will be at Worlds (it was four count here), Romania would have defeated Germany by three tenths. That doesn’t inspire much confidence, as two years ago Romania had ten full points over Germany. …

Larisa is competing a lot. And very consistently. 🙂
