Much thanks to Debbie for posting the results of the RSG
Europeans.  You certainly made my day.

Here are some comments about the results:

Based on the Serebrianskaya's performances the past season, I pretty
much expected her to win the title.  Although originality may not be
Serebrianskaya's forte, she is certainly consistent.

My pick for the best comeback of the year goes to Tatiana Ogrizko.

Most disappointing:  Lukyanenko and Vitrichenko.  Vitrichenko seems
stuck in 6th place.  As for Luky, well fans, what can I say.  All we
can do for her is hope for the best.

To PJ:  Hmmm interesting toss element(a toss of the clubs towards the
judges).  And what elements would she perform underneath this toss, a
triple roll perhaps---and out of bounds too.

Debbie mentions that L'Equipe attributes Vitrichenko's poor placement
due to a "mediocre presentation of clubs".

I think something got lost in the translation here.  As far as I
know, mediocre means dull right? If her clubs routine was so "dull"
than how would they explain her bronze medal in this apparatus?

IMHO Vitrichenko displays the most difficult clubs routine of all the
top ten gymnasts today.  My guess is that she had a drop which can
immediately put one out of the running especially in a very
competitive field.
