Caleb Faulk JAM HB: Thought he was doing a Cassina at the end of his routine but he was doing a full-twisting layout over the bar, I was like that’s WAY too big, he’s never gonna catch, but he didn’t mean to, ALL IS GOOD!

Diorges Escobar CUB HB: Zou Li Min, Tak full, maybe a little late but not bad, layout Tkachev, big clean straddle to piked Tkachevs, dismount was weird, kind of does a double tuck/layout? His first flip was pretty much an open tuck, then he stretched out, maybe meant to do a DLO and just kind of lost himself.

7:06 pm. Yuri Guimarães BRA HB: Think he started with Yamawaki to Endo. Layout Tkachev, nice stalder work, clean full-twisting double layout.
Donnell Whittenburg USA FX: Something twisty, I missed the entry, to double front, layout double double, and front full to double front I think? 2.5 to front layout, double double, and an arabian double front half-out to finish, a little scrappy at times but good that he made it through!

6:53 pm. I’ve seen like nothing of pommels or rings this rotation, unfortunately! It’s so hard sitting in the middle of the arena instead of at one end where I can see everything. In the middle you have to constantly turn your head back and forth and you miss everything!
