Donnell Whittenburg (USA - HB) tak 1/2 to open into a lay tkatchev, quast, giant 1/2, a little bit of form issues with the tak full but it finishes well, just a small small hop on the double double.


Diogo Soares (BRA - HB) Good through the tak full and 1/2, lay tkatchev, straddle tkatchev so no connections there, one arm giant, a small step on the full twisting double layout. That's a likely podium.


Arthur Nory Mariano (BRA - HB) He is standout here, tak 1/2 into the Liukin, good on the tak full to yami, lay to straddle tkatchev, quast, stalder, near stick ont he double double. It was beautiful routine. 14.500


William Emard (CAN - HB) Yami to open and then he hops off. Actually several falls. I'm wondering if he might have a rip or some other problem because he keeps looking at his hand. 9.066


Felix Dolci (CAN - HB) Fall on the straddle Tkatchev. It's going to make this race for the aA title VERY tight. great landing on the dismount. 12.833
