(3 votes, average 5.00 out of 5)

October 4, 2019 – Friday

Women’s Qualification, Subdivision 5: (18:00/12pm ET)

VT – MxG 5 (Greece, Venezuela)

UB – Romania

BB – MxG 21 (Slovenia, Poland)

FX – France

France finished fifth in Doha and is expected to have strong presence in the team final. Melanie de Jesus dos Santos is one of the favorites for an all-around medal and also capable to make multiple event final. The team will hope for Marine Boyer to make the balance beam final. Romania was 13th last year and will be hoping to avoid the disastrous performance they had in Glasgow four years ago when they failed to qualify a full team to the Olympics. Led by their best gymnast, Denisa Golgota the team will need a stellar performance to be able to make top 12. The session also will feature the mixed group teams from Greece, Venezuela, Slovenia and Poland.

Women’s Qualification, Subdivision 6: (20:00/2pm ET)

VT – China

UB – Canada

BB – MxG 4 (South Africa, Cayman Islands, Luxemburg, Ecuador)

FX – MxG 10 (Ireland, Slovakia)

The last subdivision of the day features the strong teams of China and Canada who finished 3rd and 4th at last year’s worlds in Doha. Both countries should easily qualify to team finals, but their primary goal would be to qualify as many gymnasts as they can to the individual event finals. Surprisingly in Doha Canada made one more individual event final than the Chinese women, and won two silver medals (Anna Padurariu BB and Shallon Olsen VT), while China’s Liu Tingting beam gold was the sole individual medal for the team. Both teams would be looking to put two gymnasts in the all-around final where Ellie Black in particular has a strong chance for a medal. The session also includes the mixed group of South Africa, Cayman Islands, Luxemburg, Ecuador, Ireland and Slovakia.
