“I love Nina Derwael. That’s it, that’s the confession.”


Nina Derwael of Belgium scores a 15.141 (6.5) during qualifications at the 2019 World Artistic Gymnastics Championships. Despite being in the second subdividsion of twelve, she is highly likely to make the uneven bars final with this score. (x

“I love how gymnastics is expanding. In the 2012 all around final, 8 of the top 9 gymnasts were from the big four countries (USA, Russia, China, Romania). In the 2018 world all around final, the top 8 gymnasts were from 7 different countries.”

“Tokyo 2020 dream podium: AA, sunisa, Leanne, Aliya VT: yeo seo-jeong, chuso, dipa karmakar UB: Aliya, Fan, nina BB: kara, Ou yushan, tinting FX : Ou yushan, Asuka, jade”

“I know the requirements are different, but I’d love to see an UB powerhouse like Nina or Aliya trying a high bar routine. With the proper preparation, I think they would be able to complete a very decent one.”

“C’mon Nina Derwael give up a DTY and get that AA bronze.”

“Nina Derwael has a very excellent chance of becoming Olympic Champ on bars, but I’m terrified of how the gymternet (mainly Aliya and China stans) will react if she wins.”

“My dream podium for tokio is Nina, Fan and Aliya. But the problem – I want gold for all of them -.-”

“I want about 16 gymnasts to make the Tokyo 2020 UB final. 4 of them are Russian. And I want both Aliya and Nina to take the gold. I’m going to be so disappointed.”


“I do not understand why Nina goes to world cups. She has already qualified in Tokyo.”

You’re complaining about having to watch Nina win medals for that UB routine? It’s a gift to us all. Also, once she gets officially qualified to Rio at the 2019 world championship they will redistribute the scores (at least that’s my understanding on how the qualifying points work)
