1:59 pm. Karla Navas PAN UB: Had a full pirouette on the low bar before the Maloney to Pak I think, van Leeuwen, some leg form, blind change to straddle Jaeger, ugh, lost her rhythm in a pirouette on the high bar, bent her legs and had to adjust her direction, got the dismount.

Alexa Grande ESA VT: Yurchenko full, hop back, not bad! Second vault is a tsuk back pike with a lunge back.

1:33 pm. Hillary Heron PAN VT: Second vault is a Yurchenko back tuck with a hop, played it safe since she’s effectively out of the final with an 11.1 for her first vault.
Luisa Blanco COL UB: Think she started with a Maloney to Pak and then van Leeuwen? Blind change to front giant half, and a clean full-in dismount. Don’t think she had any same-bar releases? I missed the very beginning though.
Alais Perea ECU FX: Double tuck, good landing. Nice switch ring! Hit the second pass and a clean back layout full to finish.
Cassandra Loustalot MEX BB: Steps back out of the layout stepout mount. Wasn’t typing for the rest but everything I saw was really strong, nice double pike dismount!
1:29 pm. Paulina Campos MEX BB: Off on her acro mount. Think she got everything else, I saw a few checks here and there but no other falls IIRC.

Daira Lamadrid COL UB: Toe half to RAy, blind change to straddle Jaeger, nice. Good blind full, and a layout full dismount, stuck.

1:13 pm. Paulina Campos MEX UB: Van Leeuwen I think was her first skill, caught the piked Jaeger, clear hip half, blind full, high clean double tuck. I thought I saw her attempting a Shang in the touch warmup but she fell, I missed part of her routine so not sure if she tried it?
Tyesha Mattis JAM BB: So elegant in her opening choreo! Bhs tuck full, nails it!!! Great switch leap to wolf jump. Got the bhs loso series but then off on the double spin. 1.5 with a hop forward.
1:11 pm. Hillary Heron PAN FX: Nailed the Biles, tiny hop back. Very strong double layout. Double wolf turn. 1.5 to front full, small hop. Switch leap to tour jeté half. High double tuck with a hop back. INCREDIBLE.
1:10 pm. Diana Vasquez BOL BB: Switch leap to split jump to wolf jump, had some nice toe point on the latter. Bhs loso, little step back. Strong side somi. Side aerial. Hit the dismount with a hop forward.
Natalia Escalera MEX UB: I caught this from the piked Jaeger, big Tkachev to Pak, Maloney was a little low but connects it to the Gienger, toe-on to blind full to full-in, small step. Great!
1:09 pm. Karla Navas PAN FX: Good double tuck to start. 1.5 to front layout, tiny hop forward. Double full, just some leg form.
1:08 pm. Ahtziri Sandoval MEX UB: I missed her first skill but she connected to a Pak, Maloney to bail to toe shoot, blind full to Deltchev, front giant half, and a solid full-in, small step back. Good!
1:05 pm. Lana Herrera PAN FX: Double layout, legs are pretty soft throughout but she gets the landing. Clean double tuck but punches back out of it and has to take a huge hop. Third pass was a front full I think.
Ginna Escobar COL VT: Good Yurchenko full!
Ashley Bohorquez ECU BB: Small check on the bhs loso. Switch to switch side, big wobble, can’t hold on, fall. Break at the hips on the side aerial. Had a tour jeté I think, and a full turn, minor things on both. Standing back tuck with a couple of steps. This routine is HOURS long. 1.5 dismount but she’s over time.
Luisa Blanco COL VT: Strong Yurchenko 1.5, hop forward.
1:01 pm. Valentina Brostella PAN FX: Hit a double pike at the start, just slightly short. Good 1.5 to front full. Crashed the double tuck at the end sadly.
Angelica Mesa COL VT: Yurchenko full, a little deep, step back.
Alais Perea ECU BB: Hit everything at the beginning including a switch half. Big break at the hips on the bhs loso but fights through. Hit the side somi. 1.5 dismount was good.
Alexa Moreno MEX UB: Maloney to Pak, slight leg separation. Van Leeuwen, more leg form, clear hip, only makes it halfway around was supposed to be a full, does another half, then another half, she’s really trying to correct, finally gets into the bail, to toe shoot, blind full with form breaks and a muscle through, piked Deltchev, comes out of the next handstand wildly, does like 50 giants into the double layout, this routine was a STRUGGLE but she stayed on!
Yiseth Valenzuela COL VT: I missed what she did but saw that she hit.

12:55 pm. Alexa Grande ESA UB: Blind change to big straddle Jaeger, bail a bit short with some leg form, arched over the handstand before the toe shoot, caught close and a little dead-hangy, blind full was good, clean double tuck with a little bounce.
12:53 pm. Paulina Campos MEX VT: Yurchenko layout with a hop back, hips are a bit piked, could be downgraded.
She had a long wait before going up and I think the judges were probably deliberating over whether to credit Sandoval’s handspring as a layout or pike. Looks like they gave it a pike.
12:51 pm. Tyesha Mattis JAM UB: Shaposh to Pak, slight leg separation. Shaposh half, a little wild but pulls it in control, blind full to Tkachev, a little rushed in the pirouette, blind change to front giant to double front, leaps forward, a lot in there to fix but a hit routine!
12:47 pm. Luisa Blanco COL FX: Lovely opening choreo. Strong double pike, step back. Triple wolf turn. Double tuck landing was great. Front full to front layout into an arabesque. Looks thrilled!
Karla Navas PAN BB: Back handspring mount. Nailed the bhs loso. Off on the aerial after that. Switch to split jump to straddle jump. Hit the 1.5 dismount.
Diana Vasquez BOL UB: I missed this.
12:45 pm. Ginna Escobar COL FX: Full-in, deep landing, has to put her hands down. 1.5 to front layout, step forward. Switch to tour jeté half. Good double full to finish.
Lana Herrera PAN BB: Nice switch leap. Front aerial with a wobble. Hit everything else, big hop forward on the dismount.
Ashley Bohorquez ECU UB: Bail to toe full, got a little dicey, to toe shoot. Hit the full-in dismount with a step back.
Ahtziri Sandoval MEX VT: Big tsuk double for her first vault! That was nice. Handspring front layout half for her second, could be downgraded to a pike I think.
12:43 pm. Alais Perea ECU UB: Maloney to bail to toe shoot, just some leg form on the back swing of the Maloney. Blind change to big straddle Jaeger, maybe catches a little close. Blind full to double tuck, good landing!
12:41 pm. Yiseth Valenzuela COL FX: Double tuck, bounce back. 1.5 to front full to stag, minor form. Good leap series. Back layout full, some form and a bounce.
Celia Kuriakuz PAN BB: I think I’ve only personally seen her once before. Bhs loso, some knee form. Full turn. Gets the side aerial. Switch leap. Wolf jump to split jump. Hit an aerial after that IIRC. Back layout full dismount, some leg form and a hop.
Natalia Escalera MEX VT: Yurchenko 1.5, REALLY nice! Second vault was a tsuk full, solid.
12:37 pm. Hillary Heron PAN BB: Hit her mount and leap series, little bit of a check on the bhs loso. Off on the side aerial. Double wolf turn, a little wobbly but makes it through. Hit the dismount, maybe a 1.5? I only saw the landing.
Angelica Mesa COL FX: Double tuck to start, a little buckled. Double full with a little bounce. Front tuck through to back layout I think, maybe pike, tumbling isn’t quite there but she’s such a gorgeous dancer.
Katelyn Jong USA UB: Hit the full pirouette to Chow to Pak, some leg form on both of the latter. Van Leeuwen, big leg separation there, inbar to inbar half to straddle Jaeger, good, stalder, full-out with a step back. Good work!
Cassandra Loustalot MEX VT: Handspring front pike half, some knee form, step to the side on the landing.
