Who is going to make it? – Floor

Time to wrap-up our event finals series, with the girls who have the most chance to make floor finals. Take a look!

Alexandra Raisman – she is the National champion on floor and her tumbling is crazy good! She seems to be getting better and better with her choreography too. At last year’s Worlds, she took the bronze medal and she is going to compete for a medal again this year! Difficulty: 6,5

Jordyn Wieber – her routine is a mixture of hard tumbling and explosive choreography. She made event finals at last year’s Worlds and if she does what he is used to, she is a shoe-in at the Olympic finals as well. Difficulty: 6,2

Catalina Ponor – she has a new routine for the Games, with new music, choreography and even some upgrades on her tumbling! She was the silver medalist at this year’s Euros and she is going to battle to be on the podium in London. 6,2

Sandra Izbasa – with Iordache injured, Izbasa (current Olympic champion on floor!) has a big chance to make finals and defend her medal. She also has a really cool new routine! Difficulty: 6,1

Lauren Mitchell – she has a very strong floor routine with high level of difficulty. She has shown some signs of tiredness on podium training, but says she is ready to go! She took fifth place at last year’s Worlds. Difficulty: 6,3

Vanessa Ferrari – she was fourth on floor at 2012 Euros and could make finals at the Olympics too. She also took the gold medal on floor at the London Test Event. Difficulty: 6,2

Ksenia Afanasyeva – she has a new routine that is said to be even better that the one who gave her the gold medal at the 2011 Worlds. If she keeps her tumbling clean, she will be fighting for the top spots. Difficulty: 6,1

Anastasia Grishina – she has shown upgraded tumbling on podium training (including a double-double!) and is the most probable gymnast to take the second Russian spot on floor finals. Difficulty: 6,1

Victoria Moors – with polished choreography and sky-high tumbling, Moors is a fan favorite to make floor finals. Let’s hope she does her best in qualifications, so we can see her routine once again! Difficulty: 6,1

Sui Lu – she took the silver medal at last year’s world and is China’s best hope on floor. She has a new beautiful choreography by Adriana Pop and is one of the favorites to medal this year too. Difficulty: 6,1

Elizabeth Tweddle – she does have the Big and British new routine she promised us! She took some time off of competing floor, due to surgery, but has shown a nice job on podium training. She made finals at last year’s Worlds and let’s keep our fingers crossed she can do it again in her home country! Difficulty: 6,1

Hannah Whelan – She is the bronze medalist at this year’s Euros, but since her difficulty is not that high, she shouldn’t really challenge for a floor medal at the Olympics. If she hits it in qualifications though, she could still make the event finals. Difficulty: 5,9
