Melbourne 2017 Gymnastics World Cup Day 1 Recap

I was lucky enough to watch training and warm ups today and witnessed lots of amazing gymnastics. Sanne Wevers of the Netherlands showed beautiful skills on beam with an awesome new mount sequence involving a back handspring mount connected to a Wolf Jump with a full turn connected to a full twisting back handspring. This connection gives Sanne 0.5 in CV and is one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen. I didn’t get to record it because she only did it once or twice today. She also did mostly the same routine as her Rio routine including her great dance element sequence seen below.

The competition began with Women’s Vault and Mens Floor. Both of these events had some really strong gymnasts and some unfortunate falls. Wang Yan of China qualified in first place to the final with a combined vault score of 14.216. She did a great Rudi and a Double Twisting Tsukahara, her landings were a bit low but she managed to not give too much away to the judges. Wang was closely followed by Emily Little of Australia who received great crowd support. She had a beautiful Double Twisting Yurchenko with a small step out of the line followed by a Full Twisting Tsukahara that was super clean with a tiny hop forward. Naomi Lee of Australia was in third followed by Caitlin Todd of New Zealand. Both girls had great amplitude on their vaults and I can see upgrades coming in the future for both. 

On the floor Kenzo Shirai led the way with a huge 15.100 on floor. He had a 7.1 D score but had steps and hops on almost all of his passes which resulted in the lower E score. He opened with an amazing Triple Twisting Double Layout followed by a Triple Twisting Double Tuck (seen below).

Shirai was followed by Mu Jile and Wataru Tanigawa which both had beautiful clean routines but with much lower D scores which kept their Scores in the low 14s. Mu Jile had a beautiful three and half twist connected to a Rudi to open his routine and Tanigawa had an amazing stuck piked double arabian. 

Next was Uneven Bars and Pommel Horse. Uneven Bars qualification turned out to be much closer than I expected. Luo Huan of China had beautiful clean lines and great difficulty to qualify in first place with a 14.400 (6.0). She had the classic Chinese bars skills including Healy, Ling, Healy ½ etc. In second place was Australia’s Rianna Mizzen who had an absolutely incredible routine. She begins with a combination of weiler kips ala Jordyn Wieber connected to a Maloney + Hindorff + Pak (OMG). She then transferred back to the high bar with a Van Leeuwen and finished her routine with a Toe 1/1 connected to a basically stuck full twisting double back. Liu Ting Ting was in third place in qualifications with a 14.066. She had a beautiful pak salto (seen below) but had struggles on some handstands but finished with a stuck double layout.

Pommel Horse was next and featured 2012 Olympic Champion Krisztian Berki who had a gorgeous routine showing off his beautiful long lines. He scored a 14.800 which I though was a little low to be honest. Weng Hao and Zou Jiangyou were the next highest qualifiers with 14.466 and 14.433 respectively. They both had pretty good routines for what I saw but I wasn’t paying as much attention as I should have because pommel horse. 

The final event was rings which was a pretty tight competition as well. China’s Wu Guanhua qualified in first followed by Ibrahim Colak of Turkey and countryman Zou Jingyuan. This final should be pretty close between these three and Koji Yamamuro of Japan.

I was also lucky enough to meet Lieke Wevers and Mary Anne Monckton (who were both amazing). I also got to meet some of my gymternet friends @flippinover and @thehonoraryamerican. I’m looking forward to the amazing competition that should continue for the next three days.

(I hope you don’t mind, I changed it around just a little bit.)


Practice was over for the boys and now they were spread across the room doing their own thing. JB and Jr.  were playing rock, paper, scissors to see which one would have to wash the dishes after dinner tonight. Yugyeom was playing cooking mama on his phone while Youngjae watched, pouting every time Yugyeom would mess up.

Bambam was dabbing all over the place while Mark and Jackson were somersaulting and cartwheeling randomly. You smiled fondly, they were all genuinely happy to be together and it warmed your heart.

“[Y/N]. Check this out!” Jackson calls to you. He does a back flip and recoils with a front flip. He looks to you for approval and you clap.

“Very good, babe!” You smile, truly amazed at how flawless his flips were. 

“Watch this, [Y/N]!” Mark says. You watch intensely as he performs a round off-back handspring-back tuck. He lands on his feet smoothly and you clap enthusiastically.

“That was wonderful, Mark!” You can hear Jackson’s low growl and you can tell he’s a little jealous at your reaction to Mark’s tumbling skills.

“If it’s so wonderful, why don’t you do it?” Jackson’s pout is so cute that you resist the urge to pinch his cheeks. The challenge he gives you excites you. Gymnastics was your specialty, at least it was in high school. You stand anyway, never being one to back down from a challenge.

‘I hope I don’t embarrass myself.” By now all the boys were watching you, excited to see what you were going to do. You stand with your hands by your sides before you take a deep breath. You jump for momentum and start to do a front tuck-round off- back handspring- layout twist. You land on your feet like a cat and smirk triumphantly.

“Yep, still got it.” You turn to the members to see their jaws on the floor. Jackson is the first to reach you, cheering.

“That was amazing!” You blush, the boys follow up with compliments. “Why didn’t you tell me you were great at gymnastics?” 

“I don’t know, it was never relevant. I cheered and did gymnastics in high school.” You shrug.

“You should teach us sometime.” Jackson says and you nod.

“I guess, but don’t sue me when you fall and break your neck.”


Hope you liked it, anon. :P

Chapter 1: The Meeting

Link: AO3

Calla Lavellan is checking out a new place to live in a new country when she happens to see the next door neighbor. Hot, blond, muscled, working on his motorcycle, wearing jeans and a t-shirt, and covered in engine grease. Instantly all she can think of is “Yes, Please.”

An unapologetic sex story set in modern Thedas. A fairy tale retelling of Alice in Wonderland!

Calla ran her hand through her hair, staring up the magnificent house in front of her. “Wow, Josie.” She traced her eyes over the distinguished and original front to the old Victorian building. “This is amazing… but I don’t think I can afford it.” The columns, pointed gables, and multi-paned windows were freshly cleaned and looked well maintained.

Her cousin shook her head and linked her arm with hers. “Nonsense, it is not as fancy as you think.” They stepped up the stairs to the front porch. “Besides, there are a number of us here, keeps rent down. You may not want to live here with that many of us running around.” Josie’s accent was the same as Calla’s, familiar and comforting in this Ferelden land of flat tones.

Inside the pretty front door, Calla saw what she meant. The first floor had two large, open rooms flanking either side, made from the multitude of smaller rooms that would have been there originally she saw as they walked through the bottom floor. The kitchen had been modernized, the wall separating it from the dining room knocked out to expand the size. A lovely breakfast nook had been added to the space, probably where everyone ate informally. There was a fancy staircase leading to the second floor, and then another up to the third. It was comfortable but it was not a traditional Victorian layout anymore.

2017-2020 COP

So I was looking through the 2017-2020 code and here’s just some things I’ve noticed so far:

  • The did indeed take the d or more dismount requirement out but it also says when determining start values the top 8 elements INCLUDING the dismount will be counted so I doubt much will really change with the type of dismounts we’re seeing
  • If your feet and another part of your body (ie your butt) touch the ground at the same time on a Prod it’s downgraded to a front handspring front tuck
  • Kips after Shaposhs are empty swings (whhhyyy???)
  • You now must count 3 dance and 3 ACRO skills on beam and floor
  • They still use CDs for floor music? For some reason I figured they used MP3s now since it’s not 2004 (this isn’t a change just an observation)
  • Piked Jaeger is now an E and layout is an F
  • Switch ring on beam is now a D not an E
  • Full twisting front layout off beam is now a D dismount but apparently only if the twist comes BEFORE the salto
  • Gainer layout off the end of the beam is now only a C
  • Layout double arabian is now a H

So mostly stuff we knew was coming, but some stuff I didn’t see mentioned before. I didn’t actually read the entire thing, and I’m not SUPER familiar with the current element values so there’s probably stuff I missed, but this is what I gathered from a quick skim

When Ginny scheduled all her classes to be in the afternoons so that she could take on all the morning shifts at the campus café, she did not factor in having to deal with Daphne Greengrass.

Daphne waltzes in at eight-fucking-fifteen on the dot every single weekday, blonde hair perfectly coiffed and lips perfectly glossed and skin perfectly unblemished. Ginny will, instinctively, huddle down a little in her oversized apron and fight the urge to rub at her freckles before promptly disintegrating into self-loathing for feeling that way.

She’s Ginny-fucking-Weasley. She plays varsity touch rugby and she’s fabulous.

Daphne then proceeds to order the same drink, every time: a skinny, soy caramel macchiato with a double shot of espresso and extra whip (then why the actual fuck does she want it skinny?), and cute latte art.

For real.

It’s going to be covered by whipped cream anyways and Daphne Greengrass wants cute latte art. At eight-fucking-fifteen in the morning.

Ginny always smiles as brightly as she can without actually throwing up before proceeding to make a non-skinny soy caramel macchiato, single shot, and with only a burst more whip than usual. She leaves out the latte art.

And that’s how she earns $7.60 every morning, like clockwork.

At least, until Pansy Park starts coming in with Daphne. Then she earns $9.30 every morning, like clockwork, in addition to dealing with the cloud of resulting frustration that Pansy wafts in with her like a spritz of Gucci Guilty.

Simone Arianne Biles was born March 14th, 1997 in Columbus, Ohio. She is a current member of the US National Team and is the reigning national champion. Simone is a two-time World All Around Champion, two-time World Floor Champion, World Beam Champion, and a two-time World silver medalist on vault. It’s important to note that she is the first ever African American woman to win the World AA title. Her impact in USA Gymnastics has been quite significant considering she is one of the most decorated gymnasts in history after only two years as a senior. She has been referred to as unbeatable over the last few years as she pushes the envelope in women’s gymnastics to the next level. Simone has a floor pass named after her, a double layout with a half twist. There are videos of her doing unthinkable skills such as a standing double back, a triple twisting yurchenko, and a double double dismount on beam. She is heavily favorited to continue her dominance at the 2015 World Championships and the 2016 Rio Olympics.
