After a break there was the exhibition of italian group 5 balls and 3 ribbons + 2 hoops. Their exercises were great they changed some passages and now the routines seem more organic and well choreographed. Then competition starts again with the senior individual:
– Evgenia Kanaeva wasn’t in her perfect shape, of course It is since the EC that she hadn’t a rest, and she made some mistakes and imprecisions but she still was the queen of the competition and I’m grateful to her for bringing her elegance and beauty here at this competition for 7 years!
– Ulyana Trofimova was great and I was very happy to see her finally in a great shape after the World Cup in Pesaro. She performed with her charm and sympathy and she conquered the audience.
– Julieta Cantaluppi was very great too. She’s very powerful and she had incredible handling, but she isn’t too flexible so she lose some points.
– Federica Febbo was very elegant and expressive too, every time I watch this gymnast I think she really feels the music with a great personality and expression.
– Marina Petrakova was nice too, she conquered my mother who said: “she’s so nice!”, I was very happy to see her again after her long absence from the carpet.
– Zeynab Javadli was very beautiful, I like her interpretation of the music and I’m glad to see her again as individual!
