UPDATE – John messaged to say Remkes competed it at Cottbus last year. Second pass!

introducing the Zapata 2

Rayderley Zapata plans to compete the layout version of his skill at the Cottbus World Cup.

Actually, it’s a new skill. Forward layout half-in, backward layout out.

Yes, it should be impossible. 😀

Eythora Floor – Memorial Gander 2018

Coming back from injury, Eythora was not on the Dutch team for Worlds. But she did compete World Cup.

World Champs Dalaloyan, Xiao Rutoeng, Petrounias

Floor
1. Artur Dalaloyan (RUS) 14.9
2. Kenzo Shirai (JPN) 14.866
3. Carlos Yulo (PHI) 14.6

You could argue that Yul Moldauer (USA) 14.566 should have been Bronze.

Yulo is the biggest happy surprise of Worlds 2018. Congratulations Philippines. 🙂

Pommels
1. Xiao Rutoeng (CHN) 15.166 ***
2. Max Whitlock (GBR) 15.166 ***
3. lee Chih Kai (TPE) 14.966

Second ever Worlds medal for TPE.

Max hit 3/3 in Doha. He lost the tie break due to having lower E-score.

Rings
1. Eleftherios Petrounias (GRE) 15.36
2. Arthur Zanetti (BRA) 15.100
3. Marco Lodadio (ITA) 14.900

Petrounias was doubtful to compete Worlds. He has shoulder surgery scheduled in 3 days.

Zanetti was fantastic. You might argue he was even better than Petrounias. There’s not much to separate the very best Ring men.

Simone’s SET on Moors

Incredible. She could probably do triple twisting double layout.

Click PLAY or watch the first pass on YouTube.

Look how much later Simone initiates the twist than others. It’s almost lay-in, double full out. She gets that technique from her Biles.
