The C Score (2.0)

Posts Tagged ‘2008 Milan Grand Prix

While some less-experienced seniors and juniors were off at the Massilia Cup, a number of big players — notably He Kexin, Sandra Izbasa, Lia Parolari and Daniela Druncea — were in Milan for the gymnastics Grand Prix.

From what I’ve heard, He won bars with a massive score (a 17.000 over Lia Parolari’s 14.700), Izbasa won floor, and Parolari won beam. Supposedly the younger Italian gymnasts Serena Lichetta and Andrea La Spada were also present.

There are no official results anywhere, so I’d rather wait to post those, but for now here’s He’s bars. It’s full difficulty. I think it’s better than Beijing, but not as good as Doha. The first Jaeger in her Li Ya combination is molto dynamic , and she sticks the landing (it looks stuck but it’s not from the replay). Still a bit problematic on the low-to-high transition though:

Given the scores, it appears Izbasa may have had a fall on beam (she had a 6.4 start value). She competed floor with a 5.8 start value. Parolari’s start value on floor was, for whatever reason, a 4.9.

He and Izbasa got the only B-scores in the 9’s, on their winning routines.

There are more videos from naomival85 and monagym.

I was glad to hear Druncea is back in competition. For whatever reason, I enjoy her. From youtube, though, it seems that she still has that terrible FX routine. Here she is on bars:

About The C Score

First there was A score and B score, now D score and E score. Where is the C score? Right here. In the form of my random thoughts about women's artistic gymnastics.
