“I really, really wanted a second world medal for Alexa…”

“Okay all this WC needs now is for Flavia to medal on BB (for her to lose out to Simone WITH A FALL in 2016 is a travesty and we all know it) and Alexa Moreno to medal on VT.”

“Not only Alexa Moreno qualified to Tokio, but I just found out Daniel Corral did as well!! /*does the Mexican happy dance.”

“The Olympic Commitee of Mexico is cutting all travel expenses of athletes. I’m fearing for Alexa.”

“Have you guys forgotten about the event-final qualifier at this Worlds for everyone without a qualified team? I’m pretty sure Chuso, Yeo Seo Jeong and Alexa Moreno could get their tickets to the Olympics this way.”

I know it’s way too early to try to predict the winners, but I’m just so anxious and excited about who will make Tokyo 2020 via the apparatus route! 

VT will most likely go to Oksana Chusovitina, Jade Carey, Rebeca Andrade or Alexa Moreno, and I wish all 4 of them could win!

UB is probably the most unpredictable. After just 2 world cups, 

Lyu Jiaqi is in front but she is up against Fan Yilin, Nina Derwael, Daria Spridonova, Kim Bui and so many other bars queens!

BB is currently being led by Zhao Shiting and Rebeca Andrade but there are so many women who can fight for this spot, including 

Flavia Saraiva who is in the mix. 

FX is also unpredictable. Vanessa Ferrari had an amazing performance in Melbourne and is sitting at the top of the rankings along with Flavia Saraiva. Jade Carey will be a big contender for this event but no one can be counted out just yet!

¡Después de mucho tiempo, al fin logré tomarme una foto con una de las personas que más admiro en este deporte!
Fue muy amable y por eso me siento muy agradecida 😊
…No tienen idea de lo feliz y apenada que me sentía 😅

“After I long time I finally managed to take a photo with one of the people I admire most in this sport! He was really nice, so I feel very grateful! You have no idea how happy and embarrassed I felt.”

“Okay I am just as happy for Alexa as you are, but let’s keep in mind that she has the first WAG medal in Worlds for Mexico, not the first overall medal, because there is Daniel Corral (and I love him just as much as I love Alexa, btw).”

“Everyone writes everywhere how happy he is for Alexa Morena (and of course, I am so happy, too!). But after such a close fourth place last year, it is so sad that Chuso is 4th again and my biggest wish (after beam gold for Kara) was a medal for her.”

“Congratulations Alexa Moreno on vault bronze!”
