Asian Games 2010

November 7, 2010

The Asian Games are 5 days away, and I just saw the roster for the first time. A lot of countries are just using their worlds teams. Here are the participants. I’m sorry if I copied some of the names incorrectly.

Deng Linlin
He Kexin
Huang Qiushuang
Jiang Yuyuan
Sui Lu
Yang Yilin

Hong Kong:
Wong Hiu Ying Angel

Kyoko Oshima
Momoko Ozawa
Yuko Shintake
Rie Tanaka
Koko Tsurumi
Mai Yamagishi

South Korea:
Eum Eunhui
Jo Hyun Joo
Kim Ye Eun
Moon Eunmee
Park Eun Kyung
Park Ji Yeon

Katia Bou Aram

Cheong See Teng

Frances Audrey Munoz

Aljazy Abdulrahman Alhabshi

Hui Nicole Tay Xi
Hui Krystal Khoo Oon
Heem Wei Lim
Jia Hui Tabitha Tay

Mananchaya Senklang

Emrina Abduvalieva
Luiza Galiulina
Yuliya Goreva
Dina Karimdjanova
Asal Saparbaeva
Irina Volodchenko

Do Thi Ngan Thuong
Do Thi Thu Huyen
Phan Thi Ha Thanh

A team for North Korea was also listed, but they have been suspended for two years as a result of three different birthdates for Hong Su Jong. I fully expect China to dominate, followed by Japan in the team competition. The Bronze is anybody’s to win. It possibly would have been Uzbekistan’s to lose if Elizarova was competing, but she’s not. I think it will likely be South Korea.

I’m sure Jiang Yuyuan would love to take the all around here after being second at worlds. I expect the all around to also be China 1-2, with a Japanese gymnast in third. Tsurumi will be trying to redeem herself after a pretty disappointing world championships.

Vault won’t be all China, although Huang Qiushuang has a great chance at winning. Jo Hyun Joo made world vault finals, so she could certainly factor in. I honestly have no idea who else competes two vaults.

Gold and Silver on bars are also China’s to lose. I do wonder what He Kexin’s mental state is like after falling during bars finals at worlds. If she falls during finals, she can still medal. If she falls during prelims and Huang and Jiang hit, she won’t be in finals. Tsurumi can likely take a bronze if she looks like she did during podium training at worlds. If she looks like she did during the competition, one of her teammates can take it.

Beam will likely go to Deng Linlin or Sui Lu, although like He, I am wondering what Sui Lu’s mental state is like. She was fabulous on beam at Chinese Nationals, but didn’t hit a beam set at worlds. Still, China has Jiang Yuyuan and Huang Qiushuang who can both score well on beam. I would absolutely love it if Luiza Galiulina could hit her routine for the bronze.

Finally, I want Sui Lu to take floor. Jiang Yuyuan can be second. Bronze medal is again anyones to win.

    Love your blog, really interesting stuff and good videos. Just a tip though, it’s spelt “Lose” not “Loose”. As in “The title is hers to lose”, and “That leotard is really loose”.

      Thank you for commenting, I didn’t realize that I was making this mistake until you informed me even though I know it’s incorrect. I fixed it in this post and will pay more attention in the future.
