Beam judges were slow. And also bad. What they are doing now makes Olympic Gymnastics look bad to the general public.

China put on a Beam clinic with 5 of the top 11 scores.

It was wonderful to see Larisa hit. Romanian Beam like past Olympics. Sadly she hurt her ankle on the triple twist dismount.

Floor

  1. Vanessa Ferrari ITA 14.166
  2. Simone Biles USA 14.133
  3. Jade Carey USA 14.100
  4. Rebeca Andrade BRA 14.066
  5. Jessica Gadirova GBR 14.033

  8. Murakami Mai JPN 13.933

Full results.

30-year-old Vanessa Ferrari was one of the last qualifiers to Tokyo. And finds herself in the final ahead of unbeatable Simone Biles. Congratulations. Also — vindication for 2010 Worlds where she should have been #1 on Floor, but judges ranked her 6th.
