Amelia Racea Wins Glasgow World Cup
I said prior to the competition that this would be a rematch of the European Championships. After watching the competition, it is clear that these girls were very lucky that this was not the European Championships. There were falls all over the place, along with watered down routines. The only two gymnasts who did not fall were Amelia Racea and Jessica Lopez, and scores were clearly very low all around. Vault was the highest scoring event, and even there half of the scores were under 14.
The highlight of the meet was Giulia Steingruber’s Rudi in the first rotation. It earned the highest score of the meet by almost a point, and could even be improved.
I have uploaded some videos to my youtube channel, which will be linked to the results. Hopefully somebody will upload more complete, higher quality videos soon. If they do, I’ll update the links. Also, check out Full Twist’s live blog.
