France's Marine Brevet and U.S. junior Katelyn Ohashi won the all-around titles at the WOGA Classic, held Saturday evening at the Dr. Pepper Arena in Frisco, Texas.

Brevet, the 2010 French national champion, impressed with outstanding form and extension, but fell on her double pike dismount on floor. She won balance beam with a 14.350 (front aerial, ff layout; side aerial to side somi; double pike).

Brandie Jay of GK's in Colorado won the silver, thanks to a nailed Yurchenko 1 1/2. She took third on bars with a routine that included Khorkina and Shushunova releases.

Briley Casanova of the host club took third showed clean form on all four events. She took her high score on balance beam, where she's upgraded (standing Arabian; punch front; ff, whip; double pike).

In her first competition as a senior, 2009 American Cup champion Jordyn Wieber (Geddert's) competed two events. She won bars (Weiler Kip, Weiler kip-half, Maloney, back uprise-free hip; toe-on full to Tkatchev; full-twisting double layout) but dropped off beam on her front aerial, one-arm ff, layout series. She continued with a strong routine that included side somi, a standing full, and a new dismount of ff, ff, 2 1/2.

Ohashi, 13, opened the competition with two falls on floor exercise (layout front, double front; 2 1/2 punch front) but rebounded to capture the all-around title. She slightly underrotated her double-twisting Yurchenko vault, which was devalued to 1 1/2. She won bars (inside-Stalder full to Tkatchev; inside-Stalder blind to elgrip to Jaeger; full-twisting double). She ended on balance beam with a spectacular routine, which included a standing Arabian and two flip-flops to a layout full before dismounting with a new piked full-in (6.9/15.90). She had planned a 7.0-Difficulty routine, but did not connect her Onodi to her front aerial, sheep jump.

WOGA teammate Madison Kocian took second after a fall on bars (Tkatchev), but was nevertheless impressive on the event, with a Stalder-Shaposhnikova-half combination; high Jaeger and full-twisting double. She won both vault (double-twisting Yurchenko) and floor exercise (Arabian double front; 1 1/2 to front double-full; double tuck; double pike). Like Ohashi, Kocian will be eligible for senior competition in 2013.

Arianna Guerra (Stars Houston) won bronzes in the all-around, vault (double-twisting Yurchenko) and on beam. She was fourth on floor exercise with solid tumbling (tucked full-in; 2 1/2 punch layout front; triple twist; double pike).

Hello said:

I have a question. did Jordyn fall on a layout or a layout stepout? Because layout stepout is what she normally does and layout is new.

She fell on a layout stepout. By the way, if I just write "layout" it means layout stepout. Otherwise I use "two-foot layout" or "whip" if it's a bit pikey. Perhaps we should put together a glossary of all these terms.

I agree! I was thinking a glossary of skills/moves would be very helpful. I mean, I have never really figured out what a Shaposhnikova is. I'm sure I'd recognize it if I saw it. I've looked through the Code of Points diagrams before, but sometimes it's hard to get the idea of what a skill looks like from those drawings. The Code also doesn't always say who the skill is named for, as far as I have seen. There are some YouTube montages of named skills, but they don't list everything and some skills happen so fast that it's hard to fully appreciate them.

I would enjoy seeing a series of photos of a new skill each month in IG, complete with description, technical name/who first performed the skill, variations, and maybe even its difficulty value, for those of us who are real nerds! smilies/wink.gif I know a lot of people who enjoy watching gymnastics on TV, but they don't really understand what they're seeing, or why one gymnast receives a higher score than another.

I'm curious, how did K. Ohashi get 13.00 on floor exercise, with two falls? Is there a video?

Oh, okay thank you! I find it odd that she fell on something she's done so much? I saw in a picture her ankles were wrapped. was this just a fluke thing or did she look injured?

It is heartbeaking that Ohashi (and others) will be unable to be in the 2012 Olympics, because they are few months too young. I'm sure Liukin will do his best to build her toward 2016 but it's not fair. That routine should be seen in the Olympics!
