“A team of Gelia, Lilia, Alexandra, Daria and Gelia Simakova, I sniff disaster on the TF unless they hit 12/12.”

“I start to lose faith in Gelya for getting an individual medal at worlds. Just hope that without Aliya this year, she is still able to lead the Russian team to a podium-finish.”

“If the US world team is hard to predict, the Russian and Chinese team are just as hard, just in another way.”

“I think it is extremely disrespectful for Valentina Rodionenko to claim that Aliya Mustafina will likely retire without even consulting with her. Like girl, Russia is not that deep rn. A sick, injured Aliya could still contribute more than most of the Russian athletes.”

“viner should have chosen Trubnikova or Selezneva to at least 1 routine at worlds instead of Soldatova, i like her as the next person but she proved she’s not in shape both physically and mentally too many times this year, while the other two worked to earn it.”

“I feel like this quad Russia doesn’t have a lot of “super stars” (girls that can win many world medals) however, overall many of the girls are pretty good. Like so many girls have a 14 on at least one event and seem way more consistent. I feel like they also complement each other better, like there is a variety of skills so a good team can be made.”
