So, the talented Anja Brinker has taken the uneven bars prize at the Qatar world cup. beating out Pauline Morel and Marie-Sophie Hindermann.

Anja has a good routine, with an high opening Tkatchev connected to pak salto to the low bar to open and a  Shaposhnikova to the high bar, which is one of my favorite transitions.  Watch a version of it here, performed at Cottbus earlier this year. (or HERE)

It's fairly good, but it probably won't be competitive in the Worlds field.   She did well to beat out Pauline Morel who has lovely lines, but, I would argue, highly questionable form at times.

Swedish gymnast Ida Jonsson took the vault prize.

The other event finals will be played out today.
