Pundits that called the new look Italian team ready to medal at Worlds were right. Recall ITA qualified in 8th.

Giorgia Villa, at her first Worlds, already looks like a veteran. No panic, not even when this happened.

Every team had falls. Nick Ruddock counted 19 total. Italy only had one. Performances qualifying were much better than what we saw here.

Though there is no AA award at this meet …

Biles – 59.766
Melnikova – 56.532
Villa – 55.832
DJDS – 55.498 (with a fall)
Black – 55.032
