AND IT STARTED SO WELL......

So, someone told me that Amelia Racea didn't make EF's because she only did a layout dismount. In fact, she did a 'nothing' dismount! Oh well, something clearly went wrong and she couldn't pull it off without hurting or endangering herself so it is probably best it happened this way.
But what I really wanna know is, what are Sandra and Diana doing all stealth-like at the back near then end?

Or HERE

  1. I realize that it's some sort of abbreviation for Balance Beam, but it's somewhat amusing that the display behind her says "balk".

  2. Wow, she looked really tired near the end of that routine.

  3. I really wonder what Diana Chelaru and Sandra Izbasa saw there. It seems that they already saw that something was wrong, but you can't really see in video what tehy are looking at.

  4. It's sad that something went wrong and she couldn't do her dismount, but better she do that than risk injury.

    But it was funny seeing Diana and Sandra creeping on the sidelines. I really want to know what was going on!

  5. She was crying after it happened, I felt so sorry for her. I have no idea what Diana and Sandra were looking at. The only thing in that direction was the commentator box and as far as I remember, there was nothing to see there (the screen with the ranking on it was on their left). I really don't know what else they could have been looking at though.

  6. Yeah, I wonder if the two things were related? I think not, because if there was anything wrong at that end, the coach, who was sitting closer would have done something about it- rather than tell the girls. it's a weird little moment, that's for sure! Poor Amelia!

  7. Sorry, I meant the screen with the ranking on it was on their right, not their left.

  8. I really have no idea what happend... maybe Chelaru and Isbaza were looking at the time-thingy behind the mat? Though that has nothing to do with Racea not doing her dismount, right? Awkward situation. Poor Amelia!

  9. Maybe they just wanted to watch someone perform or something like this ...
    Here's another cute video of the Romanian girls in Ghent (at the end)

  10. There's no leap series as well as no dismount... Maybe she realised that she'd left it out and didn't bother with a dismount?

  11. She doesn't need a leap series. The requirement is just to connect two dance elements, 1 of which shows 180 degree splits- she fulfills this requirement with her split jump + pirouette.
